The Designer: Stella McCartney
The Look: The theme of Stella's Resort presentation was a beer garden party, which was held at St. Luke's in the West Village and drew the likes of Bono, Estelle, Liv Tyler and Naomi Watts. There were flowers in abundance - in the garden, in vases on the picnic tables and on the clothes themselves - along with pinatas, a pretzel cart, a shaved ice stand, a Ping Pong table, buckets o' brewskies, balloons and tasty veggie treats. Style-wise, Stella served up boxy jackets atop slim pants, chic black-and-white sheath dresses, and lots of colorful striped and floral silk separates, including a really cute candy-striped poncho. Faux snakeskin bags and neon-hued shoes were displayed on rustic wooden shelves near the entrance to the garden. Upon leaving, guests were given small pots of roses to keep the beauty blooming all season.
