Stella McCartney Named in Queen’s List

Cue the champagne. Stella McCartney—legendary English fashion designer and daughter of former Beatle Paul McCartney—has been named to Queen Elizabeth’s New Year Honors List for 2013. McCartney has had quite a year, from designing the uniforms for team GB at the 2012 Olympics to receiving the award for Designer of the Year in the U.K. But the Queen’s list is an even bigger deal, recognizing the service and achievements of extraordinary people in the United Kingdom. A Happy New Year, indeed.
