Remember those Little Miss and Mr Men characters you loved when you were a child? Mr Happy, Mr Angry, Mr Small…
Well Stella McCartney has been given the honor of being the first person to be turned into a Mr Men character. Little Miss Stella, a fashion designer who decides to help Little Miss Nobody, who keeps being ignored by people. One gorgeous Little Miss Stella suit later, Little Miss Nobody is transformed into Little Miss Somebody.
The Little Miss Stella books were used as invitations to Stella’s spring/summer 2007 collection in Paris’ Palais de Chaillot.
Stella admits she is thrilled with the book, saying: “I think it’s great fun. The Little Miss books are iconic.”
The story was created by author and illustrator Adam Hargreaves, son of the creator of the Mr Men and Little Miss book series Roger Hargreaves. Though some have mused that Little Miss Nobody is a thinly veiled swipe at her step mother, Heather Mills.
Adam Hargreaves said: “It was great fun working with Stella on the Little Miss Stella story. I am really delighted that she has become the 84th Mr Men and Little Miss character – if only for a limited time.”
