Stella McCartney held an epic, music-filled fun fest Tuesday night in Hollywood with a performance by none other than dad, Sir Paul McCartney (who joined Dr. Pepper’s Jaded Hearts Club Band onstage for a banging rendition of “Helter Skelter”).

Held at the iconic SIR (Studio Instrument Rentals) Studios in Hollywood, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, the event was a celebration of the fashion designer’s men’s and women’s autumn/winter 2018 collections, that had models dancing onstage and rocking out to performers Leon Bridges, St. Vincent, Beck, Grimes and others.

The crowd was art, fashion, Hollywood and music-world heavy. Paul McCartney greeted old pal Ringo Starr with a hearty hug.

In the back room lined with glass cases full of hot guitars and horns, McCartney showed her men’s and women’s collections on groups of models, while stars sipped "Paul McCartney’s favorite margaritas" made with Casa Dragones tequila. Katy Perry posed with the silver-haired model (and mother of Elon) Maye Musk, while stylist Jeanne Yang admired the white Stella McCartney leisure suit worn by BORNS.
