Fashion designer Stella Mccartney enjoyed a high profile launch night for her new London store after pal Madonna turned up as guest of honour.

The bash, held at McCartney's Mayfair premises, was also attended by her sister MARY, Tom Ford, VALENTINO, Sadie Frost and Sharleen Spiteri.

Located in the poshest area of London, the store is a four storey Georgian townhouse with original features and could be mistaken for a private house. And that's just the way Stella, who was accompanied by her fiance ALASDHAIR WILLIS, wants it.

She says, "I don't want people to be frightened to come in. I'm very happy with the result - it's a dream come true to have a store in London. I can relax now."
