Backstage at her Spring Summer 2012 show
Congratulations Stella McCartney! This award gives recognition to a British designer who is creating global awareness of their designs in the media. What with the likes of Kate Winslet, Kate Moss, Susan Sarandon, Meryl Steep, Nicole Kidman and Katie Holmes all parading her wares in front of the paps, it's recognition well deserved. Not to mention, of course, the amazing Stella McCartney spot print dress which has undoubtedly been the stand-out red-carpet dress of the past few months.

She’s has an amazing year, with her gowns competing with the long established eveningwear designers on red carpets from Hollywood to Cannes and beyond. She’s also working with the Olympics to create sporty outfits for team GB and next season will show a collection at London Fashion Week in addition to her mainline in Paris. Phew!
