Daphne Guinness Band

Heiress/model/muse/filmmaker/artist Daphne Guinness has found a new hat: rock star.

Guinness, whose notable co-conspirators have included Isabella Blow and Alexander McQueen, joined the band Element 4 last week for a rare performance at Lower East Side club Arlene's Grocery.

Despite her pedigree and experience as style's timeless muse (her personal couture collection was large enough to warrant its own show at The Museum at FIT, after all) Guinness is by all appearances as humble and nice as any other mere mortal. Before the show Guinness took to Twitter to vent to her tweeps about the gig. "I am really nervous.... help," she told one.

Paper Mag posted a video of Guinness singing Jefferson Airplane's "White Rabbit" and asked, "Who knew she had pipes?" To which she replied in a tweet: "I suppose I did. just never used them." As if you needed more reasons to love her, here's another!
