Last month, Daphne Guinness announced that she would auction off 100 items from her wardrobe at Christie’s in London come June 27. The Telegraph just got a peek at her picks, among them:

A strapless “bubble dress” by French couturier Christian Lacroix; a white silk mini dress by London Fashion Week designer Christopher Kane; a silver minidress by her late friend Alexander McQueen and a selection of the heel-less shoes she is famed for wearing by Norita Tatehana.

There’s a few bargains in the lot, with something — a spare button, or extra thread, perhaps — priced at £300 ($479), but the event could bring in as much as £100,000, or nearly $160,000, all going to the Isabella Blow Foundation. Daphne herself has been keeping busy ahead of her closet cleaning, tweeting yesterday: “Just left abbey road. Recording again.”
