Posting a photo of her new 'do on her Instagram, she wrote: "It's my birthday and I'll be blonde if I want to."

Stella McCartney: I would love to dress the Queen!

British fashion icon Stella McCartney - now Stella McCartney OBE — has said she would love to design clothes for the Queen. The successful British fashion designer, who has dressed some of the world's most famous people, said she thought the Monarch was 'chic' and up there with the great fashion icons. After picking up her OBE at Buckingham Palace recently, the 41-year-old said she hoped one day she'd be selected to style the Queen.

In an interview with Channel 5 News she revealed what the Queen and her had chatted about during the ceremony: "She said to me 'you, you seem very busy, very busy every time I see you' and I said 'oh well, I'm not quite as busy as you, Ma'am'

"Then she said 'well, there always seems to be another fashion show or, you know, another fashion week' but I said 'yes, but my greatest honour was designing the kit for your nation for the Olympics' and she said 'oh well, it was very, very good.' Stella also revealed that she is fan of Her Majesty's fashion sense, saying she rated the Queen's wardrobe very highly.

A dress that makes you thin?

If you want to drop three inches from your waist without having to diet then George at Asda says they have the perfect dress for you. The supermarket fashion line has released the 'Lovely Body Dress' as part of their Bodysculpt range which they say will create the illusion of a perfect hourglass figure. The £25 dress can reduce three inches from the waist through the built-in control panels that smooth the stomach, sculpt the thighs and lift the bottom.

The dress also has illusion style panelling — a popular trend seen on the catwalk from designers such as Stella McCartney and on stars including Kate Winslet and Kate Moss — that creates an hourglass look.
