Good Sir, may you look to you for some fashion inspiration? It seems Stella McCartney sought inspiration from her Fall 2008 collection from King Arthur's days.

The medieval inspiration was clear at Paris Fashion Week as the young designer sent models down her runway that looked ready to jump on horses and start jousting.

"Rug-like mustard knits emblazoned with grandiose coats-of-arms strode alongside foggy drifting chiffons and heavy plain midnight-blue velvet shifts," Catwalk Queen described. "Some, like a small tulip LBD, were cute, sleek and feminine, while long black smocks and boxy double-breasted wool-felt coats with enormous lapels eliminated any silhouette whatsoever. Some ensembles gave off an earthy, ethnic vibe; others harked back centuries to the medieval damsel."

The Vegan designer has made a name for herself in the fashion world for designing and promoting only eco-friendly, organic product, both fashion and beauty lines. In none of her collections has she ventured into the bizarre until now, so it's refreshing to see the young Brit experiment with her creativity. Stats for Medieval Fashion Trending: Older & Buzzing
