4th October 2006 Little Miss Stella and Little Miss Nobody, who is thought to be based on Heather Mills Given the opportunity to help create her very own Mr Men book, Stella McCartney made sure her character resembled her down to the finest detail. Like the designer, Little Miss Stella has the 'amazing gift' of being able to make clothes for anyone, a spattering of freckles across her nose and brown hair. However on closer inspection it seems there is more than one familiar character in the limited edition Little Miss storybook. It tells how Little Miss Stella takes pity on invisible Little Miss Nobody and makes her an outfit that immediately turns her into a somebody. Yesterday friends of Stella's were questionnning whether the Little Miss Nobody was a thinly veiled reference to her stepmother Heather Mills who experienced a similarly remarkable rise in fortunes when she married into the McCartney clan. One said: 'No one's saying that she wrote this book with Heather in mind but they are obviously a few similarities and a few of us close to Stella in the fashion world are having a giggle about it.' The two women have a notoriously volatile relationship. Stella, 35, was said to be unhappy when Sir Paul McCartney began dating Miss Mills and failed to publicly congratulate her father and his new wife on the birth of their daughter Beatrice. However their relationship thawed and Miss Mills, who used her famous name to help publicise her charity work, made a point of shopping in her designer stepdaughter's stores and wearing her clothes. Miss Mills bitter split from Sir Paul has once again driven a wedge between the pair. Earlier this year Stella approached Adam Hargreaves, who took over as author and illustrator of the Mr Men and Little Miss books following his father Roger's death in 1988. She is a huge fan of the books and suggested a collaboration. 1,000 Little Miss Stella books have been produced and are being used as invites to her fashion show at ParisFashion Week today. Stella has also created a range of clothes with her character on them which will be sold in aid of The Variety Club, a children's charity. In the book Little Miss Stella bumps into Little Miss Nobody, who is invisible, while walking in the woods and takes pity on her.] She works through the night to make her an outfit. The clothes make Little Miss Nobody visible and everyone starts to say hello to her causing her to declare: 'I am no longer a nobody, now I am a somebody.' The comment could well describe 38-year-old Miss Mills' experience on meeting Sir Paul. She grew up on a sink estate in Washington, Tyne and Wear, and worked as a cocktail waitress and glamour model. Recently pictures emerged of her posing naked for a pornographic German book in the late 1980s. They were followed by allegations she had also worked as a high class prostitute during that period. After losing a leg in an accident in 1993 Miss Mills threw herself into charity work - organising the export of prosthetic limbs to war zones. However her status rose dramatically when she met Sir Paul, 64. After they married she styled herself Heather Mills McCartney and travelled the world publicising her minefields and anti-fur campaigns. She was interviewed by Michael Parkinson and US chatshow host Larry King and even turned her hand to interviewing, appearing as guest host on the Larry King TV Show twice as well as sitting on the panel of BBC Question Time and appearing on the cover of Hello magazine. She and Sir Paul split earlier this year and are now embroiled in a bitter divorce.
