sdfdsStella McCartney had to take a break from fashion design because she was giving birth to her third child, a son. Her newest son is named Beckett and I’m sure his older brother and sister are thrilled!

Fashion for Thought:
“I don’t believe in changing my style because something’s a trend… People are misled: They think because it’s a trend, they should do it. And it’s not going to work.”
