Femme Fatale Sweetheart

Going in a different direction this month. In two words - Stella McCartney. She is a major source of inspiration on so many levels. After being the creative director of Chloe for several years, she launched her own collection in 2001 under the Gucci Group umbrella.

Her line contains all elements important to me: femininity, wonderfully constructed tailoring, and of course cruelty free & green using organic & eco-friendly materials.

Given her famous lineage, she could have easy rested on her laurels and expected her last name to carry her through life. Luckily for the fashion world... that's so not her style.
