Stella McCarntney has been getting plenty of attention lately with her innovative Miracle dress (a.k.a. Illusion dress).
While Mrs. McCartney certainly doesn’t luck in creativity, we adore her wearable and feminine pieces with a dash of playfulness. Whether it is horses prominently shown in her earlier line (to honor her deceased mother, who loved horses) or citruses and tulips in the more recent lines, we love McCartney’s ability to take nature’s elements, mix them with rock accents, such as zippers and chains, and make them work.
Her collection below is both feminine and whimsical, using pretty laces and pleats, silks, or bold citrus prints adorning a classy pencil skirt. All clothes are animal-free, including the shoes, which are outfitted from a leatherlike plant derivative. Trust us, they are such good quality, your friends will never tell.
