Q: Wow, I loved the show and the way the models came in and stood on platforms after walking instead of just going backstage. You needed a lot of extra models to be able to do that. I am curious about what else are you doing while you are in NYC?

Gwen: I have been here a week so I have pretty much done all sorts of meetings, met some other designers, took Zuma (who is at the show with me) to a couple of fun places in town, ate some NY pizza and am ready to go home. I admit that I did enjoy the snow being from the West Coast and all! Everyone was complaining about the snow but I enjoyed it!

Q: Did you ever expect L.A.M.B. to be so successful?

Gwen: I never expected it….I just wanted to make clothes that I thought were cute and wanted to wear myself. Then it was successful and then I had whole fragrance line with a new summery fragrance coming out this summer and the ball just keeps rolling. It is very surreal to me.

Q: Tell me about the L.A.M.B. collection this season.

It is a little bit of vintage Hollywood which is very me, then a little modern soldier girl thrown into the mix. It is like ‘flashy soldier girl’ if I had to define the line in a phrase.

Q: Everyone was turning around looking at you watching the show. What made you decide to come out into the crowd here at Milk Studios?

Gwen: I wanted to see it–so I climbed up on a ladder onto a platform that was probably intended originally for one of the models to stand on. I hope I did not confuse any of the girls but they did a great job (laughs)! I worked so hard on this collection and I wanted to see it–even if it seemed odd that I was out in the crowd!

Q: Do you have any personal remembrances of the late Alexander McQueen?

Gwen: I never got to meet him or go to any of his shows. I think he was really talented though and from what I hear was a very gracious person. His death has brought a lot of sadness to the whole fashion week.

Q: How are you spending Valentine’s Day?

Gwen: I have been away from my husband for a whole week so I just hope to be kissing him a little!

Showbiz Spy
Gwen Stefani admits she was a bag of nerves when she had to hit the runway in front of an audience during one of her L.A.M.B. fashion shows at New York Fashion Week.

The No Doubt star says she’s no catwalk queen.

“I do get nervous right before the girls go out, and I don’t like going out there myself,” she said.

“The catwalk is just a different place to the stage. I find it so much more scary. Everyone is there and can be critical about your work. I’m proud of my work but it’s a daunting place to be.”

Stefani recently admitted the success of her fashion line has taken her by surprise.

“I’m still so blown away that we’ve got this far,” she said in September last year.

“When I first started, I really didn’t know what I was doing at all.

“I mean, I’ve made clothes my whole life, but I was just naïve about the fashion world. “But I think it’s [successful] because I’ve been really involved, you know?

“Picking the samples, inspirations, color palette. I have a great team of people helping me.”

New York Times

Gwen Stefani’s L.A.M.B. collection is another rare celebrity success. And there was no doubt that the collection was in her image, as the models wore the sporty separates with about as much makeup, fluffy blonde hair and tough but sexy boots (not to mention visible garter belts) as the inspirational singer.

“I love the process — and I put a lot of time into this,” said Ms. Stefani. “I see the same creative struggle and pressure to get there as in music, but fashion does not have the same level of emotional stress.”
