She's Got the Wicked Style
When we likened Gwen Stefani to a neo-Madonna in the Weekly's music section last week, we didn't know she'd actually end up looking exactly like the material girl (platinum bob and all) at her show this past Friday. Gwen's colorful concert at the Hollywood Bowl was the most fashion-packed spectacle we witnessed all week with costume changes galore: the Alice In Tokyo-land get-up seen below, a Marilyn Monroe 40s bathing beauty outfit, a hip hop track suit and Tupac-bandanna look, and sporty joggiing short and tank ensembles (all encrusted with crystals of course). Her every move on stage was trailed by her super-cute "Harajuku girls" in matching uniforms (many designed by Gwen herself for her L.A.M.B. line and her newest design endeavor inspired by them).
The after-party, which also served as the launch party for the new Harajuku Lovers clothing line, which Gwen created for Jerry Leigh Entertainment, was at the Max Factor Museum on Highland (where Gwen posed for this photo). A giant elevator that fits like 40 people -and a bar!- took us (and revelers including Demi & Ashton, looking so cute and domestic with the kids in tow, Daryl Hannah and Constantine Maroulis from American Idol) up to a dance room decorated whimisically with Japanese accents and more obvious Wonderland touches like tables full of yummy candy and food ( lots of bananas!) with a giant sign that said "eat me." Hmmm.... sound familiar? Well, yeah, just scroll down to see Steffie's shot of our gal pal Ginger snacking on a cookie that reads the exact same thing at the Petro Zillia show the night before. Eat me, drink me, kiss me, sit on my lap ...it seems fashion week is all about giving into temptation for the Style Council.
