Gwen Stefani presented L.A.M.B.'s spring 2007 line with the same fervor and fun-loving spirit that she invests in every other piece of her entertainment kingdom: music, acting, and fashion. Rather than a traditional fashion show, Stefani managed to incorporate a cocktail party, fashion show, and studio photo shoot for her look book all in one event!
For 2 hours, models repeatedly strutted down a pre-determined path through the champagne-sipping crowd of celebrities and media in various looks, and ended in front of a white seamless backdrop where they were photographed for L.A.M.B.'s look book. Guests watched models stroll by and were able to get a closer, and longer, look at the clothing as they were photographed. Media, industry members, and celebrities were able to relax as they surveyed the LAMB-ed looks. What a great idea!
Michelle Pfeiffer's role as Elvira, wife of the infamous Cartel king, Tony Montana, in the gangster cult classic, Scarface, served as inspiration for these LAMB-onized looks. Wrap dresses and floor-length evening dresses offered sophisticated depth to the line. Constructed out of Guatemalan, Indian, and Japanese textiles, Stefani LAMB-ed up these chic frocks with skinny belts and glimmering gold belt buckles. Dresses were not the only garments that reflected Elvira's chic character. Flowing wide-leg trousers and smooth, sinuous tunics were perfect for yachting in Miami.
Stefani presented one of the few sportswear collections seen at Olympus Fashion Week. Neon yellow track suits, high-waisted shorts, and knits with 'L.A.M.B.' in all of the colors of the rainbow highlighted Stefani's talent for incorporating fun into high fashion.
What would a L.A.M.B. show be without leopard print? Well, not to worry because leopard print was everywhere from blazer and shorts sets, tube tops, skirts, to the accents on Stefani's own floor-length black dress she wore for the show.
Music, movies, clothing, and now accessories! It seems Gwen Stefani has the Midas Touch, for every business endeavor she takes under her wings is reveling in success. Yes, this new mom has a new business baby to tend to: shoes! Her new line of heels debuted at Olympus to rave reviews. Hailing her LBC roots, Gwen brought an urban touch to sex stilettos by adding leather bandana ties around the ankles in a soft rose color. Canvas pumps in both black, cream, and tan were LAMB-ed up with black and tan or cream and tan spats. Tote bags in the same tan, black, and beige colors as the shoes, were accented with gold hardware.
