The stars flocked to Stella McCartney's autumn 2014 presentation in New York
Stella McCartney knows how to throw a party, but her autumn 2014 presentation in New York saw her rounding up the most epic group of famous faces we've ever seen at a fash-bash. Ever.
Earning her the title of 'coolest party host in fashion', the British designer invited a whole flock of A-list names to her stylish soirée at Park Avenue mansion - from Hollywood stars Alec Baldwin, Liv Tyler, Blythe Danner and Susan Sarandon, to legendary musician Patti Smith.
Featuring pastel candy trays, cakes that looked like current season handbags and a gaggle of top models driving power wheels, the scene was sweet and whimsical with a seriously starry edge.
Also among the throng of McCartney fans in town for a preview of her 'uptown' collection was actress Maggie Gylenhaal, author Zadie Smith, supermodel Helena Christensen and fashion favourite Julia Restoin-Roitfeld.
Belgian model-of-the-moment Hanne Gaby Odiele ramped up the fun factor by hopping behind the wheel of a mini motor, while New York socialite Kimberly Chandler got involved with a spot of giant hopscotch. Amazing.
Next time Stella's in town, we're nabbing a spot on that invite list.
