I'm not usually a huge fan of Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. clothing line: It's too busy and flashy for me, and I can't deal with the high doses of gothic lettering and leopard-print motifs. But her Spring 2007 collection, unveiled Friday at
New York Fashion Week, is going in a more appealing direction for me.
Inspired by Michelle Pfeiffer's look in the 1983 film Scarface, the line of evening wear and tailored sportswear was more 1970s New York than 1990s Los Angeles. I particularly liked the floor-sweeping graphic-print dresses, gold-lame hot pants, and the eye-catching octagonal gold belt buckles. There were, however, a few examples of Gwen's stalwart style that I found rather hideous—namely, the rainbow-fade handbag and garish sweats. But all in all, this is some of the best L.A.M.B. stuff I've seen yet. To see all of Fabsugar's Fashion Week coverage, click here. To see the rest of the L.A.M.B. collection,
