Fake it baby ... Stella McCartney F/W 2007-08

People... Stella McCartney uses fur for her new Fall/Winter collection! Well, she uses a FAKE one to be exact. Sashayed on the Paris runway by Canadian model Daria Werbowy, the fake fur coat made of yarn was the show opener for the former Beatles' frontman daughter.

Attended by media reps, buyers and a number of selected patrons, a total of 43 pieces were shown to the audience at the show that took place at TBC in Paris, the same venue chosen by Emanuel Ungaro who staged his show within the same day later in the evening.

This season, Stella combines the colors of black, dark gray, red, and some metallics as her working palette and adapts funny yet unconventional shapes into her designs.

Besides the usual faces of US Vogue's Anna Wintour and Virginia Smith, other faces that made their appearances and giving endless support to Stella were the eccentric former Italian VOGUE editor Anna Piaggi in her dyed blue hair, artistic makeup and a blue walking stick, actress Jessica Biel who seems to be the darling of fashion shows at the Paris fashion week, and Michael Roberts from Vanity Fair. Former muse and inspiration to Tom Ford's Fall 2003 Gucci ready-to-wear collection and the editor of Paris's Vogue, Carine Roitfeld was there as well.

Apart from the faux (fake is too harsh for the fashion world) fur coat, pintuck dress with long sleeves, button-front cardigan with deep V-neck and ribbed collar, short lipstick pink dress with frill detailed hemline and sweetheart neckline, pettycoat dresses and double-breasted jacket with brass buttons were some of Stella's offering to the fashion-hunger audience.

My favorite pick from the lineup is an organza bustier-styled mini dress with wavy tutu hem and sweetheart neckline, kind of the one like Sarah Jessica Parker wore in Sex and the City opening montage.

The Fall/Winter 2007-08 collection will be available at Stella McCartney's stores in London, New York and Los Angeles as well as multi-label boutiques around the world.
