Going Gray The Daphne Guinness Way

I happen to be one of those people that has hair that grows rather quickly.
On one hand it's a good thing if you have long hair like I do. On the other hand it is a disaster when you start to go gray.
I didn't go gray until about 3 years ago and at that time I made the decision to go blond.
God knows you can't go gray in this town....you might as well commit social hari kari.
OK, so being blond isn't such a bad thing except that about every 3 weeks or so I find myself at the hairdresser...and seriously, I hate it. Not only is it frigging expensive..it takes hours of my time...which I hate to waste.

So here's a picture of me blondish from last summer in Spain with my younger brother and my mother.
(yeah, I'm the one in black)

My brothers both started to go gray in their mid thirties...and luckily I didn't. So by now they both have salt and pepper hair...and are even more handsome... or should I say distinguished....because of it.

I, on the other hand, wouldn't want to go gray unless I could do it the Daphne Guinness way.

Well, she's not exactly gray...it's more of a black and white Cruella de Ville kind of look and she rocks!

Daphne Guinness is my fashion icon.

Nobody pulls off extreme chic the way that she does.

Check out the signature black and white wardrobe.

And the serious estate jewelry

And the skunk hair
I love it.

Now...if only I was an heiress to the world's most famous brewing fortune, the ex wife of a Greek shipping tycoon, and 100 pounds...I would rock this look too.

Did you ever see my amusing Election Night photo that had a tiny bit of Daphne's hair in the background?

Doesn't she just totally rock?
I have such a girl crush.
