Paris Fashion Week, Spring 2009: Stella McCartney

Stella McCartney shows are always a bit of a family affair but this season there was an extra guest as her 8 month-old baby was backstage! Sir Paul McCartney was back from the Middle East and in the front row with James McCartney and Stella's husband Alasdhair Willis.

Stella returned to tailoring this season with relaxed silk jackets, and oversized dinner jackets. She drew on a palette of neutral tones and pastel shades for a nature-inspired line.

The collection had strong sexual overtones with slinky fabrics and flesh revealing pieces. Cleavage was on show with plunging necklines and jackets open to the waist. It felt like luxurious loungwear but with short hemlines.

The back drop for the show was a giant felt picture inspired by childrens books. The final walk through was to Paul McCartney's 'Maybe I'm amazed' which Paul himself described as "emotional". The song was dedicated to his late wife Linda who Stella often sites as an influence.

The collection was very wearable and once again, Stella knows what women want. What do you think of the pieces? Check out celebrities attending Paris shows here.
