Just before Christmas, ethical fashion designer Stella McCartney took the wraps off her  her third U.S. flagship in Las Vegas’ Crystal’s at CityCenter. The 2,900-square-foot boutique includes a sustainable oak parquet floor complimented with plum, pale pink, blush and taupe colours — the 39-year-old’s signature shades.

Beyond the clothing (both her children and adult collections), the main focal point of the store is a chandelier sculpture McCartney made back in 2004 for an art exhibition. Called “Lucky Spot”, it features a horse made from 8,000 individual Swarovski crystals in mid-leap. Stella named the sculpture after her late mother’s own much-loved Appaloosa mare.

Beyond her Vegas spot, McCartney has also been busy on the digital side of her growing fashion empire. As we mentioned a few weeks back, her StellaMcCartney.com website received a full makeover complete with a new green tips and charity section. She also just released a new free iPad app to compliment the site and, according to ThisDishIsVeg, a vegan iPad cover to commemorate the launch. And yes, it’s ridiculously priced at $395.
