PAPER
on the front lines of cultural chaos since 1984.


A few months ago Daphne Guinness announced on Twitter that she was in a studio recording an album. Now we get to see what a Daphne Guinness music video looks like with the release of her first single, "Fatal Flaw." Like the videos commissioned by Parisian store Printemps -- which Guinness sang in last February, revealing her musical talents -- "Fatal Flaw" was directed by Nick Knight, the British fashion photographer extraordinaire and director of Björk's "Pagan Poetry" and Lady Gaga's "Born This Way." Given the over-the-top, editorial sensibilities of both Knight and Guinness, the video was bound to be visually epic. "Fatal Flaw" finds Guinness -- clad in feathers, leathers and sequins, as far as we can tell -- crawling and crooning through an electronic technicolor dreamscape; in fact, you barely get a non-digitized look at her. Most important, the song ain't half bad! Guinness's voice is woeful and deep and a bit like Nico's. Watch and try not to get hypnotized by the visuals.
