Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. channels your inner rock star
Credit is due to Gwen Stefani, one of the few celebrity designers whose fashion imprimatur --simultaneously quirky, tough, girly -- is all over her collection. Of course, it didn’t hurt that models who marched out from backstage in groups of eight and stood on white boxes all wore the famous Stefani upswept hairdo.
But oh what fun the clothes were – slinky overdyed jeans with slung down suspenders paired with a tough stretch biker blazer, coquettish blouses that casually fell off the shoulder – one a cocoon-sleeved, black oversized job was swell with drapey cargos in sand-washed silk. A belly-baring cable knit vest topped a purple bra and slouchy boyfriend jeans, while super cute dresses came in many variations from micro mini, (these sometimes worn with lacy tights), to ladylike knee lengths. And then here were the famously gutsy shoes – sky-high variations on the gladiator completing every look. Definitely the way to channel your inner rock star. Speaking of which, when the smiley and svelte Stefani took her bow, well, natch, she fit right in with her models.
