Los Angeles: Fashion designers Stella McCartney and Vivienne Westwood`s environmentally-friendly stylish creations won them a People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) honour.

The group recently launched its first-ever Vegan Fashion Awards, and Paul McCartney`s daughter landed the honour for most stylish women`s shoes, while Westwood picked up the prize for most stylish handbag, reports dailystar.co.uk.

Actress Sadie Frost and socialite Meg Mathews were the judges.

Frost was impressed with the winners` efforts.

"My two greatest passions are fashion and helping animals, so I was thrilled when PETA asked me to help judge their fashion awards. It`s phenomenal how many retailers and top designers are using pleather, micro-suede and faux cashmere in their collections, and the quality is amazing. The new fabrics are kinder not only to animals but also to the environment," she said.
