Stella Mccartney is devastated her fashion designing career has forced her to quit her favourite pastime - high street shopping.

Sir Paul McCartney's daughter admits she doesn't want to be spotted visiting mainstream clothes stores like Topshop, for fear of what people might think about her own fashion line.

She says, "I don't go shopping anymore.

"I don't know if that's a good thing or a bad thing. I don't like being recognised.

"I feel people would be going, 'That's Stella McCartney. What's she doing in Topshop?"
