Stella McCartney (R) and Gwyneth Paltrow.
Stella McCartney has asked a fashion house to drop an ad that featured a model wearing lingerie from Stella McCartney’s collection and a fur coat.
Stella is a supporter of animal rights and is angry that her fashion has been associated with a fur garment from Hockley, a fur boutique in Mayfair, UK.
Hockley was ignorant about Stella McCartney’s ideals and it has issued an apology to her. It promised not to use the same ad again. The stylist who had borrowed the McCartney brand of lingerie was blamed for making the mistake. She failed to seek clarification and approval from McCartney before going ahead with the ad.
