Paul McCartney's Designer Daughter to Outfit Team Great Britain at 2012

Brits will be competing at the 2012 Olympics in style fashion designer Stella McCartney has been selected to outfit the athletes at the international event.

Sir Paul McCartney's daughter has been appointed to oversee the designs for Team Great Britain's uniforms, which will be worn in competition at the LondonOlympics and Paralympics.

And McCartney, who is currently expecting her fourth child, insists she's prepared to tackle the daunting task after years of creating looks for the runways. She says, "The challenges are certainly there - you're working with athletes.

The main thing I want to do is not in any way get involved with making their performance not its best." "I want to make them the best they can be. And in order to do that I'm obviously working with incredibly technical fabrics.

I'm dealing with silhouettes that I wouldn't normally perhaps work with. So there are challenges I have a million challenges. I have to make it look good on TV, I have to make it feel good for the athletes, I have to make it work."

Good luck to Stella !! It is nice to see Paul`s children make a success of their lives, contrary to some other rock stars`s children being content to use their family ties to just parade in front of the cameras at the parties they attend. No doubt she will meet the challenge.
