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.

Check out some video of this gorgeous crystal horse after the jump below.

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.

Jallikattu was a single issue campaign doomed for failure

Filing a case in the courts is a time-consuming and expensive affair and, sadly, doomed to fail because, by and large, the laws of the land reflect the views of the people.
