Daphne Guinness Auction Blows It Out Of The Water, And More Of Today’s Top Stories

-------

For Daphne Guinness, half a million pounds may be chump change. But the fashion icon said she was “overwhelmed” by that number, which was the amount of money she raised at her auction for the Isabella Blow Foundation. The top-selling item was a portrait of Guinness (pictured), taken by Mario Testino, which went for £133,250 (a new record for Testino photos). [Vogue U.K.]

The bond between Hermès and Actes Sud has just grown a little stronger. The French publishing house will put out a series of booklets about eight artists who completed residencies at the luxury fashion house as part of the Fondation d’Entreprise. The books will go on sale October 3 for $45. [WWD]

The Rolling Stones are still going strong after 50 years. To celebrate their half-century anniversary, the rock band has asked Shepard Fairey to update its famous tongue logo with a new design. The graphic, originally done by John Pasche, was first used on the Sticky Fingers album sleeve in 1971 and was meant to represent the band’s anti-authoritarian attitude. [Rolling Stone]

The men’s shows have moved on to Paris for the last leg of the season. You can find complete coverage of all the top shows from Calvin Klein and Prada to Burberry Prorsum on Style.com. But Buzzfeed.com came up with its own take on the menswear happenings. FYI, you may not want to take rule number two, “shrink polo shirts in the dryer”—or any of them—too seriously.
