2003-Jan-09: Win A Stella McCartney Dress

Updated January 10.Today's Mirror provides more information on Heather and Stella McCartney's joint charity project to raise funds for both the Linda McCartney Center for Cancer Care and Adopt-A-Minefield  (see December 10).  In thie February 2003 edition of Red magazine, Heather models a black-and-grey, knee skimming dress designed by Stella McCartney.  You now have the opportunity to win the dress ( a size 10 worth pounds 555) by calling 0906 207 1817.  In Britain, the calls cost pounds 1 per minute and should last no longer than two minutes.  The winner of the dress will be chosen at random after contest lines close at midnight on February 14.

Heather told Red magazine that she feels comfortable with her new family:

"There's nothing celebrity about Paul's family.  They don't live in a grand house with lots of staff. It's a very normal life - cooking dinner and washing up. But they are the best thing, especially the Liverpool lot because they're so like my Geordie family."
London's Evening Standard adds these quotes from the magazine article:
 "On one hand I'm very happy and madly in love, but when I met Paul I was told to make no comment. The press thought I was sticking my nose up at them, so they got the knives out. Half of the media are out to destroy everything as if I'm a criminal.  A lot gets written about me that isn't true: that Stella left the wedding early when she was one of the last to leave; that I was going to write a vegetarian cookery book, when I'm not. There was a proposal to do a veggie cookery series on TV, but it wasn't appropriate so I offered it to Mary because it was her mum who was into that."
Will Heather have children with Sir Paul?
"If it happens that would be great, but if it doesn't, it doesn't. I had two ectopic pregnancies in my twenties so my tubes are pretty damaged, and I've had so many operations that I wouldn't want IVF or anything - sometimes things like that can ruin a relationship. Having nearly lost my life nine years ago  I tend to live in the here and now."
In the article, Heather encourages readers to try to win the dress she models in the issue saying:
"It's a gorgeous dress and Stella designed it, and it will also raise money for some great causes. Fifty per cent of the proceeds will go to The Linda McCartney Centre for Cancer Care and the other 50 per cent to Adopt-A-Minefield which saves lives by raising funds for mine clearance and helps landmine survivors worldwide."
