SWITCHING PERSONALITIES: There is only one man who could talk Amanda Harlech and Daphne Guinness into swapping personalities — and hair colors: Karl Lagerfeld. The multitasking designer shot the duo for the new issue of V — surprising, since it was the first time he ever photographed Guinness, his longtime friend and client. As Lagerfeld snapped away in his studio in Paris’ 7th arrondissement, writer Derek Blasberg observed: “The typically bold Amanda, now posing as Daphne in front of Lagerfeld’s lens, appeared timid, her movements angular. The often-shy Daphne became bolder and more fluid.” Harlech added, “When I walked out on set with my blonde hairpieces, Karl burst out laughing and said I looked like a hausfrau. I won’t be doing it again, but secretly I did love the allure of Daphne’s blondeness. It was like playing the princess role instead of always being the witch.”
