I used to love Stella McCartney for Chloe back in the day. Even with a thoroughly stellar lineup of models working for her, she herself was the brand's best ambassador. From the horses to the naked-woman tees, her designs were cheeky yet grounded by sensible silhouettes, particularly the pants. That lent a sense of maturity to her clothes, which separated her from other "free-spirited" young designers. However, more than ten years later, my opinion of Stella's ability has changed for the worse, which no doubt is tainted by the baggy, weirdly asymmetrical mess that has come to characterize her own label. What happened to the girl that could cut the meanest pants? Post-Chloe, Stella McCartney has yet to make a good suit. That is a shocking development for someone who's shown a talent for tailoring at a young age. It made me question how much of what I liked about Stella's era of Chloe was actually Phoebe Philo's work (who, say what you will about her aesthetic, has demonstrated a progressively deepening understanding of shapes and forms throughout an ever interesting career). Looking back, what I once regarded as fun and refreshing now feels borderline vulgar. The energy of her presentations is still evident, but the clothes themselves don't seem half as interesting.

her ads were always so simple, feminine yet so sexy
