Stella McCartney can always count on her father for support. Sir Paul turned out for yet another of his daughter's fashion shows today, taking the front row seat with glamorous girlfriend Nancy Shevell. The pair were joined by actress Liv Tyler, U.S Vogue editrice Anna Wintour and supermodel Natalia Vodianova with her adorable three children.
Stella, who shows in Paris every year, produced another stunning collection featuring sheer, polka dots and gold embellishment. Oversized volumes and slinky, body-conscious looks battled it out. Volume took the first swing, with extra-wide-shouldered blazers that practically doubled the width of the narrow models, and chunky knit sweater-dresses that through some miracle of engineering held their maxi-shape.
Slinkiness rallied with sexed-up second-skin dresses with hour glass-shaped paneling that gave the models impossibly nipped waists. A sheer stripe of polka-dotted tulle stretched up the leg of a black catsuit, giving it an extra dose of sexiness.
Though it seemed clear enough that the body-conscious looks won the fight - after all, who wants to look twice as wide as they actually are? The dialectic was a fun one that kept things interesting on the catwalk.
