      Paul must be delighted to learn that Stella has been cited and awarded the Order Of The British Empire (OBE) in the New Years Honours List published this weekend.

      I haven't been able to see the detailed citation outlining the reasons for the award yet.

      She's amongst a role of honorees dominated quite naturally by athletes and officials cited for their roles in the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games:

      Indeed while Stella deserves an award solely for her contribution to the growth and success in the British Fashion industry it may also include acknowledgement for her part in designing the Team GB Olympic and Paralympic competitors outfits.

      Paul, Nancy, Stella and the rest of the family were regularly seen at both the Olympic and Paralympic Games events cheering on the competitors.

      Well done Stella.

        Found the citation now.

        Stella is cited on the General List for services to fashion.

        Ms Stella MCCARTNEY Fashion Designer. For services to Fashion.

        Her award isn't mentioned in the Olympic/Paralympic list so her work for Team GB isn't specifically linked to the award.

        Although that work surely must have contributed to her raised profile leading to the citation and award.

          Congratulations, Stella!

            Don't know much about fashion but she has been very successful in that field. Good on her, well deserved.

              That award is higher the The Beatles MBE, right?

                Nice! It runs in the family. I bet Paul is SO proud! Congratulations Stella!

                  Yes, O.B.E. is higher.

                      LOL...that's the perfect dress for the caption...Does this make my butt look big?

                        That is really cool. Congratulations Stella!

                          Its a good reward

                          well done Stella

                          not a fashionista myself

                          but do know its important.Fashion often lead soceity for chamge.

                            Congratulations, Stella!!!

                            Very well done!!!

                              Ah! This explains why I came across a tweet slagging her off for benefiting from her name

                                Mclenarr:Ah! This explains why I came across a tweet slagging her off for benefiting from her name

                                It always amazes me that people dismiss the children of celebrities, even when those children have obvious talent.

                                  Stella is clearly a respected designer, benefiting from her deserved reputation -- not her last name.

                                  She could actually drop "McCartney" from her brand if she wanted, and people would still identify her and her work.

                                      that's from the bubble butt line we made fun of during the flash mob show she did.

                                      it wouldn't be a bad dress except for the butt. and all the dresses in that show had them.

                                        So was Sir George Martin's wife. Also honored was Jeremy Lloyd, who was in "A Hard Day's Night" and "Help!"
