London - British fashion designer Stella McCartney was awarded an Order of the British Empire award at Buckingham Palace in London Tuesday.
The fashion designer wore a fitted navy blue suit and a headpiece made from two Cartier jewels, one of which was a family heirloom. She put it together with a veil she bought when she was 15 and Philip Tracy sewed it together, WWD reports.
McCartney, who attended the ceremony with her husband Alasdhair Willis, told ITV she felt "really proud and really excited and honored."
"To receive an Order of the British Empire from the Queen is overwhelming. I feel proud and blessed to be here, she told WWD. "This is the kind of moment in one's life that feels surreal. I am so grateful for this honor.
According to Sky News, Stella said the Queen said to her, "You've been busy." She replied, "Not as busy as you are."
The designer proudly told the Queen she "designed the kits for her nation."
Last November, Stella McCartney won Brand and Designer of the Year at the British Fashion Awards.
Stella's father, Paul, received an OBE with his Beatles bandmates in 1965, and Paul McCartney himself was knighted on March 11, 1997.
