At Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. fall-winter 2010 presentation, the models rocked zombie-like pallor, smoky eyes, and big curly hair. They strutted to '80s tunes by the likes of Sigue Sigue Sputnik while showing off clothing that conveyed an edgy femininity. Gwen took up where she left off with previous collections and went for a harder-edged punk- and military-inspired look—there were even L.A.M.B.-brand dog tags. The presentation was unusually styled, not only with Gwen's own shoes and bags, but also with lingerie that looked like it was straight from grandma's chest of drawers—knee-high stockings with dresses, nude thigh-highs, and even a beige corset seen dangling down the back of a pair of jeans.
After the show, Gwen told us that her son Kingston is "too distracted" to pay any attention to what she wears or to her collections. But her hunky husband, Gavin, "definitely has an opinion on what I wear!" Surprisingly, she said that Gavin hadn't seen this collection yet, and won't until it's up on Style.com. As for the music she listens to for inspiration? Lionel Richie.
"I love him," Gwen says.
