Fashion designer Stella Mccartney angered guests at the launch of her own brand of perfume - by keeping them waiting in the rain.

The punctual invitees were refused admittance to Stella's Bruton Street shop in London, and were made to wait outside while assistants put the finishing touches to window mannequins.

But when the guests finally made their soggy entrance, the daughter of Beatles legend Sir Paul McCartney paid little attention to them.

A source tells Britain's DAILY MAIL newspaper, "She was clearly bored with the whole thing. It was as if she was sleep-walking."
