Paul McCartney was late to his daughter’s fashion show in Paris today.
But don’t worry, the former Beatles member didn’t miss any of Stella McCartney’s fall-winter show. The young designer held her models backstage until Sir Paul was properly seated.
According to the Seattle Times, the show started about a half hour late due to McCartney’s tardiness.
The audience, which included U2 singer Bono, may have been a little upset by the shows delayed start but when they saw sir Paul walk across the stage all was forgiven.
Reuters reports that McCartney walked across the stage singing “walk, walk, walk like a model” as he found his way to his seat.
Paul McCartney may have been late to the show but he was glad that he made it. The former Beatle said that he thought Stella’s line was “beautiful.”
Paul said: “I thought it was beautiful. Very strong, very clean.”
Paul wasn’t the only one who thought that Stella’s show was a hit. The LA Times called it a knockout, saying that Stella’s line was “sophisticated” and “wearable” with a “practical femininity.”

Woman’s Wear Daily reports that Stella’s collection played with gender roles and pinstripes to create something “utterly engaging.”
“Part of the appeal was that she pretty much extracted the androgyny; her chalky stripes may be the ancestral cloth of the lords of banking, but she delivered them with no small measure of distaff allure.”
McCartney said after the show that she was trying to inject femininity into classic British tailoring.
“It’s that British tradition and classic tailoring – timeless pieces but redirected, injecting femininity, a curve, an insert as movement,”

This isn’t the first time that Paul McCartney has attended one of his daughter’s shows. In fact, Sir Paul can frequently be seen admiring his daughter’s work as the models walk down the runway.
After attending a Paris show a few years ago, Paul said:
“I think she’s come a long way. It’s very chic and very modern and stylish. And I don’t think I would look very good in it at all. But I think it’s all very beautiful. She makes women look great.”
