The Stellabration, which drew a horde of photographers, left McCartney's classmates feeling upstaged. "The press completely forgot there were 70 other students in the show," said one fledgling designer, who asked not to be identified. "They left after Stella's collection."
"Her parents delayed the show getting front seats," griped another student. "Ours waited an hour to get in."
Still, McCartney, the third oldest of Paul and Linda's four kids, had not designed in vain. "It's a strong collection," said Hilary Alexander, fashion writer for the Daily Telegraph. And according to Linda, Stella has been offered a job with Ralph Lauren. "But I don't know if she'll take it," said Mom. "She might want to do her own thing."
