“Glee” star Lea Michele, who recently attended a preview of Stella McCartney’s Spring collection during Paris Fashion Week, had nothing but kind words for the animal-friendly designer and her ethical line.

“I do a lot of work with PETA,” she said. “I’m mostly vegan and I’ve never eaten red meat, so a brand that is beautiful without harming animals is my idea of fashion-forward.”

That “mostly vegan” remark likely stems from Lea’s decision to re-introduce fish into her diet — something she hinted at back in May.

In terms of Stella’s showing, reaction seemed mostly favorable to the new collection — with a “confident upbeat show” that  featured “designs in summery pastels”, according to the UK Guardian. But beyond Paris, Stella has other reasons to celebrate. It was announced this week that UK sales of her ethical brand are up 17.8% over last year. With an impending children’s line, it looks like ever more success is in store for 2011.
