McCartney Storms Her Daughter’s Fashion Show
Monday was a surprise for Stella, the daughter to Paul McCartney, following her dad’s raid to the Paris Fashion Show along with rapper Kanye West and Woody Harrelson, an actor.
Also present at the front row were Mario Testino, Peruvian fashion photographer, and British models and socialite sisters poppy Delevinge.
McCartney who is a former member of the Beatle music band rushed on stage the last minute prompting dozens of journalists and photographers to do their things which gave the ushers a hard time before the catwalk show could start.
Clad For The Occasion
Stella McCartney’s outfit matched the occasion in simple, relaxed lines silhouettes amplified by pant legs, hems and long sleeves, reflecting a confident autumn-winter collection at the Paris’s 19th century opera building. She also looked simple and relaxed for the event.
Most conspicuous were black dresses, hugging shoulders and joined waists with grey cast woolen outfits comprising of simple dresses to official clad.
While making her introduction notes, Stella said that her themes were “celebrating freedom” and “teasing sensuality.” The 43-year old celeb who is also a vegetarian and an animal advocate also demonstrated her black and white long-haired coats made from what seemed to be faux fur.
To make her lines appear even slimmer, Stella was clad in an eveningwear which had touches of other materials along her shoulders and ribs.
Excited fans applauded at the climax of the show when Paul McCartney made the bold move at backstage to hug Woody Harrelson, 53, and West, and then in the company of his American wife Nancy Shevell went through the crowd to cheer his daughter.
Since 2001, Stella McCartney has been running her own brand credit to her father’s fame from which she has built a strong foundation. Her shows along with Kenzo, Balmain and Dries Van Noten now rank among the top in Paris fashion Week which is held annually.
Paul McCartney, 72, announced last week that he will be extending his world tour with nine dates in Europe. He has even planned to make an emotional tour to Liverpool, where the Beatles band originated from. His all-time classics including “Yesterday” and “Let it be” will still be performing in the Paris Fashion Week.
Rapper Kanye West got married to Kim Kardashian a U.S. reality TV star, in May last year in a private ceremony before it was made public to family and friends. He teamed up with McCartney in January to release a single entitled “Only One.”
In their release, Kanye is heard singing a soft ballad while McCartney plays the organ. They decided to come up with the single after an earlier meeting in Los Angeles in 2014 believed to be as an inspiration to Kardashian’s daughter, North.
Real leather and fur marked the center-stage in the late Monday catwalk fashion show at Hermes, formerly saddle-maker house. Timelessly elegant garments mostly on riding clothes were presented while the elite label played their equine roots showing ultra-fine leather jackets mixed with silk tops and dresses in a mix of colors.
According to Nadege Vanhee-Cybulsk, Young designer aged 36, the aim of the design was to display an image for a cosmopolitan woman and all women rather than a Frenchwoman. Noting that she respected the codes of excellence of the house of Hermes, Nadege said she chose unexpected materials as merino wool which is stylish.
The bleary-eyed guests at the event were treated with coffee and cookies from Kenzo.
Paul McCartney renowned as a famous singer was born on June 18 1942 in Liverpool England. He got married to photographer Linda Eastman from March 1969 to April 1978 when she passed away. In June 2002, McCartney got engaged to Nancy Shevell who has been an author since October 2011.
McCartney had earlier last year stated in an interview that he has a lot of songs he has written and some he was still working on. However, he said that there were no fixed dates as to when they were to be released.
Late last year, there were claims that McCartney was planning to buy up The Beatles after eying it up for 30 years.
