During the month of May, Stella McCartney entered Asia with all the pomp and circumstance befitting modern fashion royalty. She opened her first free-standing shop in Beijing (pictured)—a boutique dedicated to sustainability. Shortly after, she hosted a black tie dinner in Shanghai to present the eveningwear looks from her Fall and Winter 2013 collections. The night's entertainment included a jazz orchestra, ballroom dancers, Chinese acrobats and a contortions act that ended when 12 acrobats spelled out "Stella" with their bodies. She also attended celebratory events in Hong Kong and Tokyo.
