Stella McCartney's spring fashion presentation has become something of a fixture in the New York social calender. Yesterday's show and drinks party welcomed supermodel Helena Christensen, Stella's close pals Gwyneth Paltrow, Kate Hudson and Naomi Watts.
Stella worked a cool, laidback look in turned-up skinny jeans, loose, nude-hued T and a midnight-blue jacket while her celebrity guests each chose looks from the latest collection.
The party had a picnic-style vibe with ice boxes full of bottles of beer and lemondade while a vintage-style ice cream van dished out artisan ices.
Stella's clothes for the season were as delicious as ever. Faded, petal pinks and soft blues were teamed with white and black while bold botanical prints added a bold edge. There were plenty of Stella's signature must-have tailored jackets inspired by Saville Row. Cropped trousers, stand-out, structured cocktail dresses and flowers were also themes running through the collection.
