Queen Elizabeth II bestowed the Order of the British Empire on fashion designer Stella McCartney in ceremonies Tuesday at Buckingham Palace. McCartney dressed conservatively for the occasion, wearing a navy suit of her own design, with a pencil skirt and a fit 'n' flare jacket, and topping things off with a rhinestone fascinator with demure veil. And she and husband Alasdhair Willis definitely must have coordinated their outfits. [USA Today] Amanda Bynes tweeted that she has clothing and fragrance lines in the works.

PARIS -- It was only a matter of time before stirrup pants returned to the fashion spotlight -- and if anyone can bring them back, Stella McCartney can. The designer showed a great fall collection Monday morning at Paris Fashion Week, stirrup pants and all, bringing together several of the season's trends, including knit dressing, craftsy details and sports-inspired utility. I got a chuckle when I saw the stirrup pants, but they actually looked sleek (more trouser than legging)

PARIS -- Paul McCartney, Bono, Nicole Richie, Jessica Alba and Kanye West were up bright and early at the gilded Palais Garnier on Monday morning for Stella McCartney's fall 2013 runway show. Despite the illustrious guest list, the dynamite clothes proved that McCartney's brand is far from being just a star vehicle. The look: Tailored menswear pinstripes and plaids reshaped for women. Mannish, over-sized coats with deliberately positioned lapels. Pinstripes contouring the body on asymmetrically draped skirts and dresses.

Marion Cotillard wore a striking dress from Dior Haute Couture to the "Waltz With Monica" premiere at the 13th Marrakech International Film Festival on Wednesday. The elegant dress adds a touch of whimsy with orange-and-black-striped silk layered under a blue silk overdress -- kind of a grown-up pinafore. And stripes have been a "thing" on recent red carpets, Los Angeles Times' Fashion Critic Booth Moore says. [Los Angeles Times] Dame Edna Everage (aka comic Barry Humphries)

Celebrities including Madonna and Chrissie Hynde were tight-lipped about the apparent wedding of designer Stella McCartney and publisher Alas- dhair Willis as they left the remote Isle of Bute in Scotland. Pretenders singer Hynde would only say that the daughter of musician Paul McCartney was "beautiful." There was no official confirmation that Stella McCartney, 31, had married Willis, also 31, on an estate owned by a friend of the McCartney family.

Call it the H&M effect, or fast fashion. Americans are buying, and discarding, clothes more quickly than ever. On average, each of us throws 54 pounds of clothes and shoes into the trash each year. That adds up to about 9 million tons of shoes, jackets and other wearables that are sent into the waste stream annually, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Traditionally, the options for dealing with that waste have started with an R: Reduce, reuse or recycle. But a clutch of designers, some of them high-end, are pursuing a different tack.

Celebrity lifestyle entrepreneur Gwyneth Paltrow blew through Los Angeles last week, appearing at a handful of events and signings for her new cookbook, “It's All Good: Delicious, Easy Recipes That Will Make You Look and Feel Good” and the launch of her trainer/business partner Tracy Anderson's Flagship Studio in Brentwood. She wore spring looks by Isabel Marant, Victoria Beckham and Stella McCartney during her whirlwind trip. But the real star of the show wasn't a designer frock, it was Anderson's handiwork -- Paltrow's incredibly toned and tanned legs.

Stella McCARTNEY, a designer who made vegan stilettos chic, has gone organic -- creating an 18-piece clothing line exclusively for Barneys New York. No surprise here. McCartney was green before green was trendy, challenging her parent company Gucci Group to produce stylish shoes and bags without leather. And Barneys has done green collaborations in the past, not to mention its "Give Good Green" Christmas theme this year.
