We didn’t hide our surprise at yesterday’s news that Leona Lewis was taking to design, and even more so at the fact that Stella McCartney was lending a hand, so does it really come as a shock when the British designer denied the rumours?
Depsite Vogue UK reporting that Stella’s Twitter page tweeted the story, leading us to believe there was some sure-fire truth to the speculations, Stella has outed the claims that she’s been in talks with Leona Lewis as she prepares to design a vegan fashion line.
â€œI’ve never heard anything about it , it’s news to me! she told Grazia at her annual Christmas lights switch-on.
Well, that’s booted any fashion credentials the songtress may have had out the window.
Meanwhile, at Monday’s exclusive event, Stella followed her funny tradition of Christmas-switch-ons-by-comedians by enlisting The Mighty Boosh boys Noel Fielding and Julian Barratt , clad in drag goth-granny get-ups , to illuminate her Bruton Street boutique.
We’re a bit gutted we weren’t there to witness the festive frolics.
