Vegetarian who walks it like she talks it. OBE recipient. Badass, woman-empowering designer. At this point, the least interesting thing about Stella McCartney is the fact that her dad played bass in a little British rock combo (we can't quite remember the name). After 15 years in the fashion biz, McCartney's clean, feminine clothes are, deservedly, the main story.
Witness these straight-up-gorgeous pieces: a thick, silk, jacquard blazer in Egyptian blue. A slouchy, lemon-yellow sweater in an ethereal, ultra-fine knit. The classic English Rose tea dress — that manages to be sexy, not stuffy. Canvas slingback wedges that perfectly toe the line between '40s throwback and modern minimalism. We dare you to not look elegant while wearing these.
