Stella McCartney Resort 2013 Presentation

Many designers simply shoot a straightforward lookbook for their Resort collections, so Stella McCartney took the opportunity to throw the perfect summertime garden party, held in New York City on Monday afternoon.

Fashion journalists and buyers mingled with celebrities at the fun-filled fête, enjoying nostalgic summer festivities including boardwalk games, croquet, caramel apples and even a classic lemonade stand.

Solange Knowles brought her son, Daniel Julez Smith, jr., along for the fun and fashion. The youngster represented his mum’s favourite colour, yellow.

The DJ wore a paisley-print Stella McCartney Spring 2012 dress with black strappy sandals, a black clutch plus an chain accented armlet.

Anne Hathaway also joined in the fun. Showcasing her new pixie cut the actress wore a chic ivory suit and rocker t-shirt. She accessorized with nude pumps, an orange necklace, a black clutch and black Ray-Ban ‘Legend Collection Wayfarer’ sunglasses.


Bono was the unexpected guest attending Stella’s Resort 2012 party, but this year it was Jim Carrey who took over the ‘surprise guest’ role on Monday.

Despite the star-studded scene, all eyes were on the models floating around the garden showing off Stella McCartney’s Resort 2013 collection.

The collection includes the perfectly tailored silhouettes that we’ve come to expect from Stella, in an array of colours, including cornflower blue, marigold yellow and a dreamy coral.

Lace summer dresses,  leopard print pieces provide a youthful touch to the collection, alongside vintage-inspired plaid and sunny florals.

Accessories include neon espadrilles, faux leather sandals, bags and metallic clutches.

    I like some of the lace summer dresses. Look 27 is also beautiful and I like Look 15 too, but it has to fit perfectly otherwise one wouldn’t look good if the dress is ill fitted. The floral print is lovely too.

    I guess the image pictured is a tad too big, it expands the page.

      it’s for a role

      Even though Anne’s new crop is for her role in Les Miserables, it looks awful.

      GROW IT OUT QUICKLY a la Emma Watson.

      But Anne’s outfit is cute and appropriate.

        I don’t think it suits her, so I hope she grows it out soon too! I like her blazer and shirt but not the illfitting pants. Solange’s dress is very ugly, imo, but her son looks cute. I’m not a big fan of Stella’s work, some of the looks I liked; basically the ones Ioana mentioned below.

    FC you are to blame- your posts on Solange Knowles have gotten to me. I now officially have a Girl Crush on her.

    Okay sorry to quell your fire FC but maybe Solange deserves some credit too ;)

    I am loving Anne’s rocker look, she suits it so well which is awesome because she already does glamour so well!
    The marigold fringed dress behind Jim and Stella looks gorge but in general I am not obsessed with Stella’s designs, especially not the humpback coats :S but she does some out with some stunning pieces!

    I like both Solange and Anne’s outfits.
