Stella McCartney Honored

Two popular fashion magazines award vegetarian designer Stella McCartney with top honors.

Longtime vegetarian and animal activist Stella McCartney has been honored this month by two popular fashion magazines. Last week, Harper's Bazaar announced that McCartney was chosen Best Dressed Woman of 2009 by a panel of fashion experts, including designers Christoper Kane and Christian Louboutin. In the November issue of Glamour, McCartney is one of 11 women to be named Glamour Women of the Year. The 38-year-old designer has built a career on putting the compassion back into fashion by excluding leather and fur from her work and speaking out against its use in the industry. McCartney has credited her parents, vegetarians Sir Paul and Linda McCartney, for influencing her cruelty-free enterprise.
