Stella McCartney has long been my favorite designer. Her chic minimalistic approach to fashion has always left me yearning for either one of her blushed toned dresses or her statement totes. I appreciate her modest nod to trends. Every season her collections seem to simply renew and reinvent great silhouettes with simple yet powerful lines. Anyways. Enough about what I THINK. Looks like the British Fashion Awards panel agrees with me too! Congratulations to the ever stylish, ever cool, (and alas!) ever green designer, Stella McCarntey, Fashion Designer of the Year 2012!
