Stella McCartney has earned one of the British fashions worlds's highest honors having been chosen to receive the New Generation Designer British Fashion Award 2001. The award, which recognises emerging talent, was presented to her by singer Natalie Imbruglia. Stella McCartney has become one of the most popular designers for young European and American fashion set. Last year Sella was the winner of the British Fashion Glamour award.
Meanwhile, her sister Mary continues to follow in her mother's footsteps, making a name for herself in the photography world. Mary has been selected to snap the backstage photos at this year's Brit Awards ceremony, the British music industry's most prestigious event. This is indeed an honor for her as she is the first photographer to have been invited backstage at the Brits. Mary is quoted as saying she is thrilled at the opportunity and delighted to be given the chance to take portrait photographs of her generation's hottest rock stars. Sir Paul is said to be very pleased and immensely proud of his eldest daughter.
