Stella McCartney In Stella McCartney – 2012 British Fashion Awards

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.

Stella McCartney In Stella McCartney – UK’s Creative Industries Reception

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.

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.

Naomi Watts, Stella McCartney & Rashida Jones In Stella McCartney – The NSPCC Pop Art Ball

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?

Here are the rest of the stars who attended the 2011 British Fashion Awards.

Kristen McMenamy: The American model wore an ice-white Alexander McQueen Fall 2011 organza pearl embroidered dress to go with her ice-white hair.  Her matching McQueen accessories included a filigree skull clutch, python boots and fur scarf.

Stella McCartney: The designer was, of course, in a look from her recent Spring 2012 collection. Her printed jumpsuit epitomizes her chic, laidback style of dressing. Iron-straight hair and black sandals provided the finishing touches.

Caroline Sieber: Like Alexa Chung, the stylist also wore a look from the Christopher Kane Spring 2012 collection. Her iridescent plunging floral-print mini dress was unimaginatively paired with black pumps.

Liv Tyler Naomi Watts & Bono Front Row @ Stella McCartney Resort 2012 Presentation

Stella McCartney’s BFFs Liv Tyler and Naomi Watts turned out to support the unveiling of Stella McCartney’s Resort 2012 collection in New York City yesterday.

The colourful Hawaiian-style collection was showcased in a church fete setting in the West Village.

Liv opted for a simple summery colour-block Stella McCartney Resort 2012 Tokyo blue and white dress with nude Stella McCartney buckled faux patent-leather sandals.

Stella’s look was trademark Stella; blazer, tee and jeans. I think she lives in those grey ombre jeans.

Her celeb BFF Naomi Watts is also a huge fan of her Stella McCartney Resort 2010 black jacket which she’s worn several times.

She paired her jacket with an ivory embroidered top, red shorts and espadrille wedges.

Bono was the surprise guest at this event.

Models danced around the garden with hula-hoops, blew bubble blowers, played croquet and took turns trying to crack open a Piñata in their Resort 2012 looks.

The looks ranged from sharply tailored blazers with cigarette pants, bow accented dresses, knit sweaters, bold stripes plus Hawaiian prints.

Accessories included bow front heels, faux snake-skin bags and shoes with pink neon trims, kitten heels and nude pumps.

No doubt Liv, Naomi or other celeb BFF Gwyneth Paltrow will be the first celebs to showcase this collection.
