Words were almost inaudible amid the screams when Stella McCartney presented her collection at Paris Fashion Week Monday, which toyed with draping and upcycling.
Such exuberant outbursts would usually come from the designer’s fans. But it was McCartney herself who caused the commotion when global entertainment icon Oprah Winfrey appeared backstage at her show.
Winfrey managed to utter “It was beautiful. It was fun,” amid the noise and cameras.
McCartney, a global fashion icon and the daughter of former-Beatle Paul McCartney was evidently humbled as she was jostled backstage while standing alongside Winfrey.
"I'm dying," exclaimed McCartney.
Winfrey, who is rarely seen on the fashion circuit, smiled as McCartney lavished praise.
McCartney said she advised her modelsm, "Just bow down," if you “walk past her.”
Winfrey arrived flanked by a bodyguard, race car driver Lewis Hamilton and Edward Enninful, British Vogue’s first black editor-in-chief.
