Born October 3, 1969 in Fullerton, California, Gwen Stefani started her career as the lead singer of ska punk band No Doubt.

Influenced by then-boyfriend Tony Kanal’s Indian heritage, Stefani began to wear a bindi, and helped popularize the look during the success of the band’s breakthrough album, “Tragic Kingdom.” From these early days as a fashion trendsetter came the desire to start her own line of clothing.

Her first line, L.A.M.B debuted in 2003, right before the release of her first solo album, “Love Angel Music Baby,” which is what L.A.M.B stands for. The high-end collection included clothes and accessories that were influenced by Stefani’s irreverent style and attitude.

Two years later she started the Harajuku Lovers line, which she says is a “glorified merchandise line.” It included a set of Love.Angel.Music.Baby dolls that featured the Harajuku Girls, who Stefani toured with extensively in support of her album. The also appeared on the cover of the album and had the tour named after them.

The lines contain a lot of Asian influence, with the Harajuku Lovers being a reference to the Harajuku Station in Tokyo, Japan. The Asian aesthetic is mixed with more classic and chic influences for a unique look that has made the two lines one of the most successful of the ever-growing number of celebrity fashion labels.

I'm 32 years old and married to the best man on Earth! No Doubt is my favorite band, they inspire me everyday. I remember getting my first computer when I was 14 and wanting to make a website about them. Now, 18 years later, I'm a Computer Programmer/Web Designer and STILL making a website about them. I'd like to thank No Doubt for that!
