This season, Stella McCartney decided to forgo her usual show in Paris for an intimate — and unorthodox — dinner presentation at London Fashion Week. Around 100 guests — including Kate Moss, Stella Tennant, Yasmin Le Bon, and Rihanna — attended the Saturday evening event, which began with a magic show and finished with a formal jazz band.  “I wanted to show English humor and irreverence,” said Stella McCartney.

 The real excitement, however, came with the presentation of McCartney’s Fall 2012 collection. While guests dined unassumingly at their tables, models burst forth from the crowd — flash mob-style — in an energetic display of table-dancing, chair-passing, and rowdy hip-shaking. “It was nice to see something different, something dramatic. The clothes looked great,” guest Bianca Jagger exclaimed.
