Embarrassed Designer Stella Mccartney

Stella McCartney gets embarrassed when she talks about her job.

The designer - daughter of Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney and his late wife Linda - says she chose a career in the fashion industry because it was something she enjoyed and not linked to her parents, but admits she isn't always confident when discussing it.

She told the Observer Food Monthly magazine: "I didn't want to go into what my parents did because that would have been a story and people would have talked about it. Also, I liked fashion. I used to get embarrassed about the fact I liked fashion. I still get a bit cringy. I'd sit at dinner parties and people would say to me, 'So what do you do?' and I'd be like, oh design! When I fill passport forms I put 'design.' I don't say fashion. But don't get me wrong, I love my job!"

While she has also loved fashion, Stella - who is now one of the most sought-after designers in the world - says watching Doris Day movies also inspired her to make it as a designer.

Talking about her inspiration, she said: "I think it was films. I loved all those Doris Day visuals of her being a tomboy and then changing into this gorgeous girl in a ballgown."
