Stella McCartney awarded a CBE for services to fashion and sustainability
British fashion designer and animal rights advocate Stella McCartney has received a CBE from King Charles III in recognition of her contributions to both fashion and sustainability.
The presentation, held at Windsor castle, comes after McCartney was recognised in the late Queen Elizabeth II’s 2022 Birthday Honours list.
McCartney previously received an OBE for her services to fashion, in 2013. The latest honor makes a more direct reference to her continued efforts to champion sustainable materials, production, and attitudes.
Around 100 people receive a CBE each year, from either the monarch or their representative from the Royal Family.
Speaking about her CBE, McCartney was seemingly delighted to have her sustainability work recognized alongside her clothing line.
“Humbled to be recognized for my mission to bring sustainability to fashion,” she said in a statement.
“As a British designer, this is such a proud and emotional day for me — not only to receive this incredible accolade from King Charles III, but also to have been included in Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s final Birthday Honours.”
