Stella McCartney biography (bio):
Stella Nina McCartney is an English fashion designer. She is the daughter of former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney and his first wife, rock photographer and animal rights activist Linda McCartney.

Early life:
Stella McCartney was born in London, the second child of former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney and Linda McCartney. She is named for her maternal great-grandmothers: both of Linda McCartney's grandmothers were named Stella. As a young girl, McCartney travelled the globe with her parents and their pop group Wings, along with her siblings: older half-sister Heather (who was legally adopted by Paul McCartney), older sister Mary, and younger brother James. According to her father, the name of Wings was inspired by Stella's difficult birth. As his daughter was being born by emergency caesarean section, Paul sat outside the operating room and prayed that she be born "on the wings of an angel." Wings toured from shortly after her birth in 1971 until 1980.

Despite their fame, the McCartneys wanted their children to lead as normal an existence as possible so Stella and her siblings attended the local state school in East Sussex. McCartney has said that while attending state school, she was a victim of bullying.

Career:

Beginning:
Stella McCartney became interested designing clothes at age 12, when she made her first jacket. Three years later, she interned for Christian Lacroix, working on his first fashion design collection, honing her skills on Savile Row for a number of years.
She studied fashion design at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design in the early 1990s. Her graduation collection in 1995 was modelled by friends and supermodels Naomi Campbell, Yasmin Le Bon and Kate Moss for free at the graduation runway show. The collection was shown to a song penned by her famous father, called "Stella May Day." The show made front-page news, and the entire collection was sold to Tokio, a London boutique. The designs were licensed to Browns, Joseph, Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman Marcus.
In 1998 she designed her sister Mary's wedding dress for her wedding to television producer Alistair Donald.
As a strict vegetarian, McCartney does not use fur or leather in her designs and supports PETA. Some of McCartney's designs have text that elaborates on her "no animal" policy; for example, one of her jackets for Adidas says, "suitable for sporty vegetarians" on the sleeve. Her father is also known for supporting PETA by protesting against designers who use animal fur, and those who wear it.

Chloe, Gucci, CARE:
After two collections, in March 1997 McCartney was appointed chief designer of Paris fashion house Chlo, following in the footsteps of Karl Lagerfeld. Lagerfeld was less than impressed with the house's choice, famously stating: "Chlo should have taken a big name. They did, but in music, not fashion. Let's hope she's as gifted as her father." Despite that initial skepticism, McCartney's designs enjoyed considerable commercial and critical success. She was accompanied to the design House by her assistant and friend Phoebe Philo, who later replaced her as design director.

In 2001, McCartney resigned from Chloe in order to enter into an eponymous joint venture with Gucci. The line has three stores, one in New York City (September 2002), one in Mayfair (April 2004) and one in Los Angeles which she opened on her birthday in September 2005 and expanded her brand into perfume.
Stella McCartney received the VH1/Vogue Designer of the Year award in 2000. Paul McCartney presented the award to his daughter. She thanked him in her acceptance speech and dedicated the award to her late mother. Also in 2000, McCartney designed Madonna's wedding dress for her marriage to Guy Ritchie. Her older sister, Mary, served as the wedding photographer.
In January 2007, Stella McCartney launched a skincare line called CARE. The 100% organic line includes seven products, from a cleansing milk made with lemon balm and apricot, to green tea and linden blossom floral water. Dutch model Bette Franke stars in the line's advertisements.

Collaborations:
In 2004, she designed clothes for Madonna's Re-Invention Tour, Annie Lennox's summer tour, and Gwyneth Paltrow's and Jude Law's costumes for the film Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow.
She also launched a joint-venture line with Adidas, establishing a long-term partnership with the corporation in September 2004. This line is a sports performance collection for women called 'Adidas by Stella McCartney'. The collection includes apparel for swim, gym, running, tennis and wintersports, as well as bags. McCartney's favorite pieces in the collection come with a special reflector keychain.[citation needed] In early 2006, the keychain was in the shape of a pink heart and in later 2006, it was in the shape of a gray wolf's head. In January 2007 Stella McCartney announced that she will be adding a branch called Gym Yoga to her sports range for Adidas. Gym Yoga spring/summer 2007 collection is inspired by ballet and dance uniforms. The collection features double-layered tank tops with deep necklines, low-waisted skinny trousers and lightweight rubber shoes. Her Adidas contract was extended until 2010.
In 2005, she designed a range of clothing and accessories for H&M, to boost public awareness of her own brand and to create more affordable options for her fans. The line was released in November of that year and sold out almost immediately on launch day, due to the similarity (in many cases, almost direct copies) between her expensive main line and the H&M line.
On March 12, 2007, Stella McCartney's limited edition 42-piece range was released to just 100 Target stores exclusively in Australia. The range was priced from $30 for a silk scarf to $200 for a taffeta trench coat. The collection was made in China. Scenes of near hysteria broke out as women stormed the stores to buy the collection. A problem was "clothing scalpers", who bought up large amounts of the range to resell on eBay at a high mark-up. Later, a large number of buyers returned their Stella clothes to Target complaining of strange, non-standard sizing that was bigger than the norm. A Target spokesperson defended the range saying that Stella's look was "generous" and "oversized". Later, returned Stella clothes languished on the racks having had their prices slashed by up to 60 per cent.
In January 2008, McCartney's collaboration with lingerie label Bendon will be released to department stores, speciality stores and Stella McCartney stores. The lingerie is to come in the colours of her signature palette: antique pink, blue, grey and cream.
In early 2008, McCartney will be releasing a line of handbags for LeSportsac. The collection will have 30 to 40 styles and will range from $200-$250. The collection will consist of travel bags, luggage, baby accessories and bags for mothers with infants and toddlers. The line will be sold at high end retailers, the Los Angeles and New York Stella McCartney stores, select LeSportsac boutiques, and will be available for purchase online.

Criticism:
Some in the press have suggested that McCartney's meteoric rise through the fashion industry was partly due to nepotism, however she has always claimed that she would have been a famous fashion designer even if her dad hadn't been Paul McCartney. In particular, it has been suggested that Vendome, owners of the Chlo house, appointed her as much for the wave of publicity the appointment would generate as for her talent. In recent times, however, most commentators have said that she is entirely capable. Indeed, Vogue magazine wrote that "her first collection for the house Chloe, shown in Paris in October 1997, quickly dispelled any doubts about her talent."
McCartney went to Saint Martins where she did not receive a first class degree, unlike the other internationally famous Saint Martins Alumni, such as John Galliano and Hussein Chalayan, adding to the speculation that it was her name rather than her talent which lead to the Chlo appointment. Despite this, she is known in the fashion industry as "Stella Steel" or "Unstoppable Stella."
Stella also in November of 2007 designed a silver necklace featuring a single leg, an apparent attack on her father's estranged wife Heather Mills, an amputee. Fashion insiders thought it was "edgy", but also a bit "out of order".

Personal life:
McCartney married publisher Alasdhair Willis on 30 August 2003 in Mount Stuart House, the stately home of the Marquess of Bute. McCartney's wedding dress was an updated version of her mother's wedding dress from her March 1969 marriage ceremony to Paul McCartney. She designed the dress with Tom Ford, her boss at Gucci. The service was attended by Gwyneth Paltrow, Liv Tyler, Pierce Brosnan, and Madonna.
Their first child, son Miller Alasdhair James Willis, was born 25 February 2005, weighing 7 lbs 7 oz. Their second child, daughter Bailey Linda Olwyn Willis, was born 8 December 2006, weighing 7 lbs 14 oz. Stella is expecting her third child by the end of 2007. The couple own a house in London, and a 250-acre farm in Pershore, Worcestershire.
McCartney is a member of The Royal British Legion Paddington Branch as is her husband.
In addition to her elder sisters and younger brother, Stella has a much younger half sister, Beatrice Milly McCartney, born in 2003 to her father and his second wife Heather Mills.
