(updated March 12) It is day five of fashion week in Paris. At 9:30 this morning, Stella McCartney unveiled her latest autumn-winter ready-to-wear collection in an Art Deco pavillion of the grand Théâtre National de Chaillot. With her tailored coates and feminine corsets, Stella paid tribute to the great tradition of French haute couture. Stella's boyfriend, Alisdhair Wilis was there. Among Stella's friends in the audience were Marianne Faithfull, Kate Moss and her boyfriend Jefferson Hack, and British actress Thandie Newton who told a Reuters reporter:"There were some pieces in there that really took my breath away. The pieces with the jewels I thought were really daring and fun. I can see her personality in the clothes because I know her. That's really key as well. I think designers have to have amazing charisma because they use that. People want their clothes to reveal something about their personality so you buy the designer whose personality you identify with or admire, and you want some of that."
