Stella McCartney Net Worth $75 Million

Stella McCartney was born in London’s central district, Lambeth, in a quite artistic family – her father, Paul McCartney was one of the founders of “The Beatles”, and her mother, Linda Eastman was American musician, photographer as well as animal rights activist. During her youth, Stella traveled all over the globe, alongside her three siblings while her following parents and their subsequent rock band “Wings”.

Stella McCartney’s interest in fashion and design dates back her teenage years, when she designed her first jacket as a 13 years old girl. Three years later Stella became an intern at the French couture house Christian Lacroix after which she began her education in design. She enrolled at Ravenbourne College before graduating from Central Saint Martin’s College of Art and Design in London in 1995. Her graduation show, apart from notable and unique apparel, also featured Kate Moss and Naomi Campbell as the models. The collection attracted the attention of major fashion labels, and was entirely purchased by Tokyo, Bergdorf Goodman, Joseph and Neiman Marcus. Before establishing herself on the international fashion scene, Stella McCartney also refined her skills under the mentorship of Savile Row tailor Edward Sexton. All these accomplishments provided the basis for Stella McCartney’s, now quite impressive, net worth.

In 1997, Stella McCartney was engaged as the creative director by the Vendôme Luxury Group in order to return faded glory to their 45-year-old fashion label – Chloé, succeeding the famous Karl Lagerfeld. In 2001, Stella was approached by the Gucci Group (PPR Luxury Group as it is referred to now) to form her own fashion brand. Later that year, at the Paris Fashion Week, Stella McCartney presented her collection, abundant with lacy petticoat skirts, silk pants, tight jeans and faux-fur coats, also including the memorable T-shirts decorated with “Bristols” embroidery. It is certain that these achievements helped Stella McCartney to establish herself and her eponymous fashion label in the fashion world, as well as to add millions to her overall net worth.

In 2004, Stella McCartney began a long-term partnership with Adidas, designing a collection of sportswear named Adidas by Stella McCartney. A year later she teamed-up with one of the leaders in high street fashion – H&M. This, Stella McCartney for H&M collection, included 40 highly stylish yet attractively priced pieces. These collaborations, besides bringing closer a wider clientele and high fashion, have also significantly increased Stella McCartney’s overall net worth.

Throughout her fashion designing career which is now spanning over 20 years, Stella McCartney has been collaborating with famous celebrities and big brands such as, besides those already mentioned, Madonna, Gwyneth Paltrow, Liv Tyler, Kate Hudson, as well as Gucci, Gap, LeSportsac, Target and even Disney. She has also won many honors and awards such as British Style Award Designer of the Year. Stella McCartney has also been decorated as an Officer of the Order of the British Empire(OBE) by the Queen.

In 2003, Stella McCartney launched her first perfume – Stella, and later, in 2007, she presented her first children’s wear collection. The first men’s line designed by Stella is announced for the final quarter of 2016.

The most recent Stella McCartney’s project includes designing the British uniforms for the opening ceremony of the Olympic Games in Rio, Brazil which officially began on 5th August 2016. She reprised her “role” from 2012, when she dressed the athletes who were representing Great Britain at the Olympic Games in London.

When it comes to her personal life, Stella McCartney has been married to Alasdhair Willis since 2003. The couple has four children.

The main characteristic of all Stella McCartney’s collections is her “no animal” policy. All her apparel has been made of non-leather or fur materials, as she is an avid supporter of PETA, a global animal rights organization.
