Stella McCartney Receives Top Honor From The Queen!

2012 was quite a year for Stella McCartney.

The designer saw her clothes being worn by big-name actresses and models all over the world, won the Designer Brand and Designer of the Year Award at the British Fashion Awards, and got the venerable honor of designing the uniforms for Team GB at last summer's Olympic Games.

Nice!

Now, Paul McCartney's talented daughter was named an Officer of the Order of the British Empire by Queen Elizabeth II for her services to Britain as a fashion designer.

Sarah Burton of Alexander McQueen was the latest designer to receive the honor, so Stella's in really good company!

We are so proud of Stella. She's truly come a long way since her days at Chloé. And we bet the best is yet to come!

In fact, we have a feeling she's now officially in the running to dress Kate Middleton's baby bump!

Congrats!

A Giant Voldemort May Fight A Giant Mary Poppins At The Opening Ceremony Of The London Olympics.

If this isn't the best news ever, we don't know what is.

British newspaper The Sunday Times is reporting that He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named Lord Voldemort will be banished into the abyss by Mary Poppins at the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics.

The dramatic duel is the climax of a sequence featuring some of the best-loved literary characters in British history like Alice from Alice in Wonderland, Captain Hook and Cruella De Vil.

But here's the best part — Voldie will be 40-feet tall and Mz. Poppins is gonna pounce on his pale patootie from the roof of the stadium so "the nightmare will be banished and happiness restored."

One witness to the extraordinary sequence has called it "jaw-dropping," but we're leaning a little bit more toward unbelievable.

We've never wanted anything else to happen more, but don't want to get our hopes up in case this is some kind of a joke. One thing is for sure though — we know what we're watching on Friday night!

He's ba-ack!

Johnny Weir revealed recently that he plans to compete in the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, Russia!

While attending the David Yurman fashion preview in NYC last week, he said:

“I would love to, and am hoping to, compete in Sochi! You don’t get to the Olympics by not being great.”

Excellent! We'd love to see him take home the gold this time!

Best of luck, bb! We're rooting for you!
