Stella's crystals

Lucky Spot displayed in Great Hall of Belsay Castle

Stella McCartney's tribute to her mother, Linda. A small tribute consisting of 3,000 crystals hanging from threads to compose a 10ft chandelier horse. An avid animal lover, this chandelier is very reminiscent of her 2001 RTW collection when she designed for Chloe. You know the one. With the horse dresses and pineapple crotch swimsuits. Yeah, that collection. If my calculations are right, this little pony runs about almost half a million US dollars. This kind of reminds me of one of those friends that always one-ups you. While you get your mom a bouquet of flowers, your friend designs a half million dollar sculpture as a tribute. But you gotta love her.
