Friend indeed: Daphne Guinness (shown) and her couture collection will raise funds for a charity honoring late pal Isabella Blow.

Need something special to wear with your pigeon-blood-hued Daphne Guinness for MAC nail polish? You're in luck.

The fashion muse has teamed up with Christie's London to auction off 100 pieces from her dreamy designer-laden wardrobe, Auction Central News reports. Dibs on the McQueen!

Running from June 23 to 27, the auction will see proceeds being used to help champion young designers through the Isabella Blow Foundation, which Guinness launched in memory of her late friend and fellow fashion provocateur, who committed suicide in 2007. A portion of proceeds will also be donated to mental health charities.

The announcement comes nearly two years after Guinness famously purchased Blow's own personal wardrobe to avoid it being auctioned off by Christie's and split up. Best friend ever?

“We are delighted to be offering the fashion world this incredible one-off opportunity to buy some of the most iconic and cutting-edge haute couture of the early 21st century, owned and worn by Daphne Guinness," Pat Frost, director of the Christie's Fashion Department, says in a press statement.

"Not only will the auction comprise exceptional designs by the likes of McQueen, Chanel, Balenciaga, and others, but it will also aptly benefit and shape the designers of the future. Christie’s is very proud to be able to play a part in helping Daphne to achieve her forward-looking and charitable aim.”
