British clothing designers Stella Mccartney and Dame Vivienne Westwood have won top fashion awards from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA). Bosses of the organisation have named the winners of their animal-friendly clothing and accessories awards, and both McCartney and Westwood scooped top honours.
Sir Paul McCartney's daughter was named the designer of the Most Stylish Women's Knitwear for her Jacquard Jumper and Westwood won Most Stylish Men's Outerwear for a printed jacket.
Other winners of the PETA-Approved Vegan Fashion Awards include British stores Miss Selfridge for Most Stylish Women's Outerwear and Marks & Spencer for Most Stylish Men's Knitwear.
One Direction star Liam Payne and his girlfriend Sophia Smith, Kelly Brook, Sir Paul McCartney and his fashion designer daughter Stella, and Ellie Goulding were among the celebrities who cheered the Brooklyn Nets to victory in their basketball clash with the Atlanta Hawks at the O2 Arena in London on Thursday night (16Jan14).
Are we really, actually surprised that Kanye West's daughter with fiancé Kim Kardashian is already wearing couture looks from high fashion designers? No. No, we are not. From the time it was announced that Kim was expecting, we've all been wondering about the cray-cray wardrobe that was probably already in the works for baby North West. And now that she's here, we haven't been disappointed, as Kim has been sharing photos of the lavish, fabulous gifts that have been sent to North from designers at Paris Fashion Week, and other designers who just love the Kimye baby to bits. So in case you have an extra $795.00 to spend on a dress for your first-grader (or just want to see what a $795.00 children's dress looks like) here are some of the designers baby North West is rocking right now.
Some folks came down hard on Kim for hanging out at Paris Fashion Week while baby Nori stayed home. But Mommy brought her back some pretty sweet threads from the good people at Lanvin, and showed the whole world what Lanvin kiddie wear looks like. Which is important.
You think your baby doesn't need Stella McCartney wear ... until you see these insanely adorable matching socks and mittens that go with the Stella McCartney sweater that little Nori got. So what if your utility bill is due?! The happiness you will experience seeing your baby in a Stella McCartney dinosaur onesie (retailing at about $185) will keep you warm at night.
All snarkery aside, these Hermès baby booties are everything. Everything!
Singer Rihanna, actress Cate Blanchett and model Miranda Kerr have been named among Vogue magazine's best dressed women of 2013. The stylish celebrities join Lily Collins, Stella McCartney, Cara Delevingne and Kerry Washington on the list.
Describing Blanchett's style, editors of the U.S. publication write, "No matter the occasion, the Blue Jasmine star greets the red carpet triumphant, always nailing the daunting combination of fashion-forward and timeless elegance."
Rihanna, who hosts U.S. reality TV show Fashion Star, is praised as "a sartorial volcano liable to erupt at any moment in the most fabulous anytime-anywhere ensembles imaginable. She laughs at the phrase dress code, opting for maned and sequined Tom Ford or printed Christopher Kane sweats for a sidewalk jaunt."
Kerr, who has walked the runway for Victoria's Secret, has a fashion sense described as a, "Street-style Barbie in the absolute best way, the Aussie model makes even a mundane outing look like the most glamorous... in history."
Supermodel Heidi Klum is selling off her catwalk clothes to raise money for charity. The German beauty has teamed up with charity website Fashionproject.com to sell pieces she wore during New York Fashion Week in September (13) to raise cash for amfAR, an organisation which supports AIDS research.
Fans have the opportunity to get their hands on a number of glitzy items including a golden gown the model donned for the Project Runway fashion show for $599 (£399) as well as a white and silver vest top for $269 ($179).
Other items up for sale include a Kate Spade New York dress and a Stella McCartney shoulder bag, which were donated by some of Klum's fashionable friends.
Harry Potter creator J.K. Rowling was reunited with the female star of her magical movies, Emma Watson, at a huge fundraiser for her children's charity over the weekend (09-10Nov13). The British author has founded Lumos, an organisation which aims to help kids living in institutions across the world.
After donating almost $37.5 million (£25 million) of her personal fortune to the cause, Rowling threw a huge gala event at the Warner Bros. Harry Potter Tour attraction in Hertfordshire, England on Saturday (09Nov13).
Watson, who played Hermione Granger in the films, joined Rowling at the bash, alongside fellow castmember Evanna Lynch and fashion designer Stella McCartney.
After the event, the author took to Twitter.com to thank her generous guests for helping to raise $1.5 million (£1 million) for the charity, writing, "Fantastic that we raised over £1M at (the) Lumos fundraiser - going directly towards ending the institutionalisation of children."
All proceeds from her recent Harry Potter spin-off book, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, will also go to Lumos.
When the internet gets buzzing about one particular star, you can't help but hit up Google to try to figure out who the person is, where they came from, and why you should be obsessed with them. Supermodel Cara Delevingne started out as yet another -- albeit striking -- face on the catwalk. Modeling for the likes of Chanel and Burberry she made a name for herself at a young age. But if you've ever stumbled across her IMDB page, or spent hours Instagram-stalking her, you know what all the fuss is about. And no, it's not just those signature eyebrows! Let's get to know this chick once and for all.
She's BFFs With Rihanna
Spend five minutes on Rihanna's Instagram account and you'll be bombarded with images of her and Cara out and about, having more fun than (seemingly) anyone else. The same can be said for Delevingne's account. These two are truly best friends, which makes sense as they both have mastered the art of developing a kind of bad girl, #givesnof**ks attitude that only a supermodel and a pop star can really get away with.
Along with that bad-girl image comes with a real desire to destroy any pretty-girl image she might have garnered. Those super-thick, dark eyebrows help with that, but Delevingne's Instagram is full of screw-faces and weirdness, lest we confuse her with an emotion-less, boring supermodel.
Tyra Banks Considers Her To Be An Icon
A little while back the iconic Tyra Banks released a brilliant series of photos in which she posed as some of her favorite supermodels of all time (Kate Moss and Cindy Crawford included). The photo of her in Cara Delevingne-face was probably one of the most popular of the series, and definitely got folks excited about the young British model.
She's On Her Way To Becoming A Legitimate Actress
One little-known fact about Delevingne is that she actually had a small but significant role in the 2012 Oscar-winning film Anna Karenina. Delevingne played the marriage interest of Aaron Johnson's Count Vronsky, and she was absolutely gorgeous on screen. She's now making a serious break into acting, having expressed some interest in the Fifty Shades of Grey movie, and now filming Kids In Love. We can all expect to see more of this beauty both on the catwalk and on the big screen.

Legendary rocker Sir Paul McCartney is hesitant to reach out to Thom Yorke to propose plans for a dream collaboration because he fears the Radiohead frontman will reject him. The Beatles icon admits his fashion designer daughter Stella is keen for the pair to hook up in the studio, but the Yesterday hitmaker is worried Yorke won't have time to fit him into his busy schedule.
He tells Britain's NME magazine, "My daughter Stella is very keen (for a Thom Yorke collaboration). She's got a project, she keeps saying to me, 'Ring Thom and just go into the studio and just see what you come out with.'
"I'm a bit sort of paranoid to just ring him up. 'Hey Thom, it's Paul here. What do you fancy, what are you doing? Do you fancy writing something?' Just in case he says, 'Er, actually I'm busy'."
However, there's one dream duet partner McCartney is eager to turn into a reality: "There were big rumours a couple of years ago about me and Bob Dylan writing together (sic), and I've still got that at the back of my mind. I would like to do it."
Every fashion insider knows Paris has been raiding England’s closet for decades. That funny little island which can barely support its own fashion industry is such a tried and true breeding ground for fashion innovation, many of the noteworthy French fashion house revivals of the past three decades have been helmed by boundary-pushing English eccentrics.
And fashion wonks also know that the alma mater responsible for churning them out is Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design. You will have heard of a few of its alumni: Alexander McQueen, John Galliano, Givenchy's Riccardo Tisci and Stella McCartney. Then there are the lesser-known powerhouses, like demented fashion intellectual Hussein Chalayan, print genius Christopher Kane, punk god Gareth Pugh, and little Zac Posen, who is now back in New York.
So listen up, Hollywood. We love the Couture Capital as much as you do, but the UK fashion industry needs your dough. And I understand it's a day trip from Paris.

Hollywood actress Gwyneth Paltrow has unveiled her latest fashion venture after teaming up with designer Matthew Williamson. The star, who unveiled her Stella McCartney x Goop capsule collection earlier this month (Sep13), is now collaborating with Williamson to create a Swarovski crystal-embellished sweatshirt, which will be sold on the actress' lifestyle website, Goop.
The British designer says, "I am happy to be able to bring this exclusive piece to Goop. It's such an effortless piece for autumn, the crystal embroidered neckline adds a twist to the classic off-duty sweatshirt adding a decadent touch to a wardrobe staple."
The olive-coloured sweater is retailing at $845 (£563).
The Oscar-winning actress has previously teamed up with brands Chinti & Parker, Melissa Odabash and MiH Jeans to create limited-edition pieces to be sold exclusively on Goop.
