Within "irreverent" she speaks freely of her career, life and style, accompanied by ample photographic documentation.

There is still time to catch the Daphne Guiness exhibit at The Museum at FIT; the collection is on view through January 7, 2012. But if you have a fashionista on your holiday list, this book will be the next best thing to accompanying her to FIT.
