Celebrity fashion designer Stella Mccartney has been fined for failing to submit business accounts on two of her companies.

The daughter of rock legend SIR PAUL recently opened her own flagship boutique in London, and the glittering event was attended by her showbiz pals Madonna and Sadie Frost.

But McCartney's status can't get her out of fines for overdue accounts on PRECIS - which is being shut down - and STELLA McCARTNEY LTD.

However, the fines total only $900 (GBP600), which is unlikely to dent the bank balance of the women who is estimated to be worth $24 million (GBP16 million).
