Stella McCartney Chooses Malgosia Bela for Fragrance Campaign

Stella McCartney's second fragrance, L.I.L.Y, was inspired by her family, including her late mother Linda McCartney. The fragrance's name stands for something that dad Paul McCartney would say: "Linda, I love you." But the coveted job of appearing in the ads and being the face of the fragrance has gone to Polish model Malgosia Bela.

The earthy scent contains notes of moss, lily of the valley, and truffle, and Bela is equally earthy in the ad. The fragrance hits UK department store Selfridge's in January and will be available online and in other stores by February 15.
