Design: Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B Spring 2011 Collection


We've seen tribal prints appropriated, re-cut and re-crafted a million times, but never like this – Gwen Stefani does it right.

Though usually tough to do and mix, these looks work. I want to wear everything in her 47-piece collection and if I could pull them off, I totally would.
