The models on the catwalk weren't the only thing drawing attention during Stella McCartney's show at Paris Fashion Week. Because her dad Sir Paul and his wife Heather were both sitting in the front row of the event.

It's the first time the couple has turned out to support Stella together. Relations between the designer and her stepmother, which were previously said to be strained, have clearly improved in recent months. And the heavily pregnant Heather proved her own style credentials in an off-the-shoulder top and purple fedora.

Stella's Spring/Summer collection continued the theme of earthy colours which has been prominent in Paris. With wispy chiffon dresses and voile blouses, the designer was out to create a soothing effect. "I always had this fantasy of having a great, great grandmother and discovering her chest of old fabrics," she said. "Once they were really bright, vibrant colours but after 40 years they had dulled down."

One unabashed fan of her work was eager to voice his enthusiasm. "I think it's fabulous," said Sir Paul. "She goes from strength to strength and it just gets classier all the time."
