Gwyneth Paltrow: Stella is ghetto
Gwyneth Paltrow is a huge fan of Stella McCartney's clothes because she has a "hidden ghetto side".
The Hollywood actress is close friends with the British designer. The pair are often seen together and Gwyneth regularly steps out in a creation from one of Stella's collections.
Gwyneth has paid tribute to Stella's inner strength and conviction in her designs.
"She is shockingly honest. I always say there's this kind of hidden ghetto side to Stella. She's tough," the star told New York Times. "She doesn't back down from someone who might have less to lose than her."
Stella manages to juggle her busy career with her demanding family life. The star is married to publisher Alasdhair Willis and the pair raise four children together.
Gwyneth is impressed with how Stella has transformed into a nurturing mother while forging a career as one of the top designers in the world.
"I've actually never seen someone go from such a free spirit to such a kind of beautifully conventional, hard-working life as a wife and mother," she smiled. "She was in full fun mode when I met her, and I just fell in love with her."
