Clothes designer Stella Mccartney had an alterative career in mind when she was younger - she really wanted to follow in her father PAUL's musical footsteps.

The GUCCI designer has forged a successful career in fashion, but only after discounting becoming a musician like her ex-BEATLES star dad - because it would have been too predictable.

She says, "I always wanted to be a musician but I didn't pursue it because I knew it would be so obvious and easy and didn't want to get pigeon-holed.

"I'm really a frustrated musician. I play a bit of guitar and sing. I mean if I get a hard time doing something completely different to my dad, imagine what would happen if I tried to be a musician."
