British fashion designer Stella McCartney (b.1971) worked with Christian Lacroix and Betty Jackson before studying fashion at St Martin’s School of Art, London, where she graduated in 1995 with a star-studded catwalk show in which her friends Kate Moss, Yasmin Le Bon and Naomi Campbell modelled her clothes. McCartney’s clothes are known for their sharp, simple tailoring with a feminine edge. In 1997, she succeeded Karl Lagerfeld as the creative director of Parisian fashion house Chloé, and in 2001 she launched her own eponymous label. She is seen here in a photograph taken by her sister, Mary McCartney (b.1969) - both are daughters of former Beatle Sir Paul McCartney and photographer and animal-rights activist Linda McCartney. Mary followed in her mother’s footsteps by taking up photography, and has created instinctual and candid portraits of many eminent subjects.
