    • Hundreds expressed their disapproval, with one calling image 'disgusting'
    • Issued apology saying it was a 'quick snap done backstage that was misleading'
    • Comes after McCartney, 43, suggested strong women are unattractive

    IMO-

    1). it is an ugly t shirt
    2). it probably retails around $3,000.00
    3). she knew a photo like this would cause negative feedback, Stella got publicity - and old marketing ploy.....
    5). so sad that she could do so much for young women and their perceived body image - but choose to use this emaciated model to do her PR bidding

    Guardian serves up lukewarm apologia for earlier faux pas:
    What Stella McCartney really said about women, aggression and attractiveness

    I must be missing something: her mother was strong & attractive, her stepmother is strong & attractive. What about the lawyer who married that actor last week? Plenty strong & plenty attractive. Maybe she meant personality? In the south when we say to a person: 'that was so ugly of you' we don't mean attractiveness, we are judging character or a moment lacking in Grace or kindness. Maybe she's still using the idea, long since trampled by some people, including myself & Emma Watson, that when women assert themselves they're being 'bossy.' Either way, Ms McCartney could use a filter between her brain & her mouth. And that 'shirt-top' looked as if it belonged on an episode of the "Walking Dead." Or someone with a gut shot.

    Considering that Mrs Clooney chose one of Stella's more like able creations for the civil ceremony, no doubt seance-channeled by Bette Davis' Australian dress designer, it reflects rather badly on her mental acuity. What's that modern saying: 'You say I'm a ***** like its a bad thing?!'
