Fashion designer Stella Mccartney is rumoured to pay tribute to late mum LINDA by wearing a copy of her wedding dress when she marries tomorrow (30AUG03).

The daughter of former BEATLE SIR PAUL is widely tipped to marry magazine publisher fiance ALISDHAIR WILLIS on the Isle of Bute, Scotland - and will emulate her mother's 1969 marriage style.

According to British tabloid The Sun, innovative Stella, has come up with a modern twist on the fawn dress and yellow coat Linda - who died of breast cancer in 1998 - wore when she wed the PLEASE PLEASE ME musician.

A source tells the newspaper, "A few months ago Stella was at Kate Moss's house showing her photos of her mum and dad's wedding day. She had drawn her own sketches of various ideas she had for updating the look of Linda's outfit because she reckons her mother was a style icon."

Showbiz guests at the wedding will include Gwyneth Paltrow and Coldplay star fiance Chris Martin, Moss and Sadie Frost.
