Red Carpet Fashion Awards

Last week, Stella McCartney brought some festive cheer to London’s Mayfair by holding her annual switching on of the Christmas lights at her Mayfair store, sharing the duties with comedians Paul Whitehouse and Vic Reeves.

The designer, who wore a lot of her Resort 2013 collection during Miami Art Basel, selected a weather-appropriate look from her Fall 2012 collection on this occasion.

Dressed in a chic tweed suit with an exaggerated hourglass shape, she styled her look with black tights and those mock-croc ankle boots from her Fall 2012 collection with the white platform, which have been surprisingly popular with celebs.

A gold chainmail clutch completed her look.

Stella McCartney was the queen of the night at the 2012 British Fashion Awards held at the Savoy Hotel in London, taking home two awards.

She was named ‘Designer of the Year’ plus she picked up the ‘Designer Brand’ award, which was the perfect way to end the year following her great achievements, with the pinnacle being designing the Team GB’s London 2012 kit.

Sporting her signature simple bun, the designer wore a bespoke strapless jumpsuit of her own design, which had crystal embellishments running along both sides.

I asked her how it felt to have so many celebrities wearing her pieces, not only on the red carpet but also on a day-to-day basis. She said she still gets really excited about it.

That excitement is not only reserved for celebrities; she said she will go up to a stranger on the street carrying her bag and say to them, “I love your bag”.

So if you are carrying your Stella McCartney ‘Falabella’ bag and a red-haired lady pays you a compliment, look again because it might just be the designer herself.

The woman of the moment, Stella McCartney, also attended the UK’s Creative Industries Reception at the Royal Academy of Arts in London last night which was also attended by Catherine, Duchess of Cambridge.

Praised for her efforts in designing the Team GB kit, the designer has been on a high, tweeting her experiences within the Olympic Village.

Last night she was flying the flag for her brand wearing a head-to-toe Stella McCartney Fall 2012 look.

Her deep Egyptian-blue jacquard and cornflower leaf brocade suit was paired with blue pumps with white platforms and a navy clutch which also had a white trim.

Some of you haven’t been too enamoured by Stella McCartney’s designs on celebs, so how do you feel about her in her own threads?

Personally I think she’s rocking the hell out of this look.

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.

The NSPCC Pop Art Ball took place at The Banqueting House in London yesterday.

Stella McCartney continues to wow celebrities with her designs, as many of them were decked out in her threads at the event.

Naomi Watts: As a long-time Stella McCartney devotee, Naomi was of course at this event. She wore a bespoke Stella McCartney nude one-rather-large-sleeve dress with black embroidery details sweeping from left to right. The Australian actress added summery Stella McCartney accessories including Stella McCartney ‘Pebble Astor’ sandals and a shell-coloured ‘Falabella’ clutch. I love the neutral makeup. It’s so refreshing and works well with this look.

Stella McCartney: The designer who everyone wants to be BFFs with wore an adventurous look from her Evening 2012 collection. The red marble-print ‘Barton’ dress puffs out giving the look a cocoon shape. A brass lattice oval clutch, black strappy sandals, from her collection of course, and her trademark tight bun completed her look.

Rashida Jones: The ‘Parks and Recreation’ actress opted for a cutesy Stella McCartney Pre-Fall 2012 look. Her black brocade strapless dress with a velvet bow would feel heavy if it was longer, but the length and those gorgeous nude ” target=”_blank”>Stella McCartney faux leather sandals help lighten up the look somewhat. A bold pink lip colour and a Stella McCartney ‘Lexie’ clutch completed her look.

Who’s your favourite out of this bunch?
