Whether she is in London or New York, Stella McCartney definitely attracts a crowd so the string of editors turning up to congratulate her at the launch of her new Soho store this week came at no surprise.
Guests ranging from faithful Stella wearers, Naomi Watts and Liv Tyler, to David Lauren, Lauren Bush, Erin Lauder and Anna Wintour were treated to an intimate dinner setting in the store with a Meat Free menu created by Mario Batali.

The much anticipated, 'Fashion's Night Out' took place last night starting New York Fashion Week off with a bang. The global initiative was created by American Vogue, NYC & Company as well as the City of New York and the Council of Fashion Designers in order to encourage people to shop again in the light of the current economic slump.
13 countries across the world took part, with stores offering customers special offers for the night.
From Dior to Armani and Taylor Momsen to Rihanna, all of the big stores and figures in the fashion and entertainment industry came out last night to support the initiative.
