John Lennon's widow Yoko Ono is a huge fan of Stella Mccartney's designs, in spite of her tumultuous relationship with the style guru's father SIR PAUL McCARTNEY.

The Japanese singer and artist, 72, regularly buys Stella's clothes, and admits she treats the female fashion prodigy like a member of her family.

Ono says, "She's part of the Beatles family, and I'm very proud of her.

"She has incredibly high taste and originality. I've been buying her clothes for years."
