On Monday, Stella McCartney celebrated the grand opening of her New York City flagship store in Soho with a celebrity-studded bash. The British designer, who refuses to use leather and fur in her designs, opened her first boutique 10 years ago in New York’s Meatpacking district, but closed that location following the launch of the Soho store. Celebrity chef Mario Batali catered the grand opening party with a specially designed meat-free menu, served on floating miniature boats. Included among the guests were actresses Liv Tyler and Naomi Watts, along with stars Jason Sudeikis and Kristen Wiig. McCartney’s Fall 2012 collection, which she premiered earlier that day, features a variety of vegan accessories, according to the UK’s Telegraph.
