If Daphne Guinness sounded like she was distancing herself from the POP project after the world pretty much laughed at Dasha Zhukova's appointment as editor-in-chief, it's because she, apparently, really was.
Yesterday, in regards to her involvement with POP, she told Derek Blasberg that she would like to "emphasize that I’m completely neutral here—I’m a free agent! Fashion is my family and I love everyone just the same.” It sounded weird, but ok.
And now today, she's blogged on the Starworks site that "it was so FUNNY to read on the web that I am on the new board of POP Magazine with Dasha Zhukova and my friend Ashley Heath. It was flattering but not true I am afraid. It came as a complete surprise. A complete misunderstanding! That is the nature of the web."
Guess the web - er, the Guardian, actually - got it wrong...
