 - As you all know, The Sweet Escape (album), Harajuku Lovers Live (DVD) and Wind It Up (single) have now all been released in Australia. I picked up the DVD for $21.99 at JB Hi-Fi which seemed like a pretty good deal. The cheapest place to get the album would be Big W where all Top 40 albums are $18.99. Don't forget to keep an eye out for promo posters at your local music store and see if you can score a copy! If I can be bothered I might try and rip the dvd to mp3s tomorrow.

Gwen Stefani Sydney Bound
Stefani, whose new solo album, The Sweet Escape, is due out next month, is in negotiations with Universal Music (the parent label behind her album releases) to travel to SYDNEY and MELBOURNE as part of her visit.
There's no word yet on how many live shows Stefani will perform for the public (apart from the usual invitation-only showcases), but at least one major promoter is believed to be involved in the planning of the trip.




 - Fox 8 will be screening the American Music Awards this Wednesday at 12pm (lunchtime).

 - Thanks to Sue, according to the Herald Sun, Gwen is currently in negotiations for a mid-2007 tour here.

 - The Sweet Escape is not being released on December 1st (Friday not Saturday) by JB Hi-Fi, who knows why but it's good for us!




 - are listing the release of The Sweet Escape (UK version), Wind It Up and Harajuku Lovers Live all for December 2nd. You can pre-order them on the website now.




 - Thanks to Adam, Wind It Up was the most added song on Australian radio this week!




Hey everyone, just letting you know I'll be back soon, have one week left of my course.


I saw some absolutely major ripoffs of HL in Myer today, everyone has to go check them out. It's just one shirt by a brand starting with R by Lee. They're a pinkish colour and have the watercolour styled artwork of an asian girl on the front and some japanese writing on the sleeve. They are incredibly similar to HL, I actually thought it was HL for a second. I think they were around $50.


In other quick news, The Sweet Escape will be released in Australia on December 2nd.




 - I just ripped the leaked clip of Sweet Escape for everyone! Download it here.


 - In other quick news, thanks to Stephen from Everything In Time, he has set up a new gallery for me so I'll get working on that once my course is over. I'm making it my mission to have everything up by the end of the year.





Gwen is currently putting the finishing touches on a brand new album which will be out before the end of the year.  "This is definitely another dance record but the sound has evolved a lot over the last two years as I've gone in and out of the studio.  It's more melodic and very modern." she said recently.  This time around Pharrell Williams, Nellee Hooper and Tony Kanal return producing/co-writing new songs while first time collaborators Akon and Tim Rice-Oxley (of Keane) join the fray.  Song titles include "Wind It Up", "Orange County Girl", "Fluorescent" and "Candyland."


A live DVD is also set to be released this year.  The Harajuku Lovers Live DVD will feature a full concert performance shot last year in Gwen's hometown of Anaheim, CA and will be packed with bonus features and footage as well.  The live performance includes all the songs off of L.A.M.B. along with 2 songs from the new album.  Frequent video director and friend Sophie Muller helmed the concert film.

Keep checking for the latest album info, appearances and details on Gwen¹s 2007 World Tour set to begin in April and cover North America, Europe, Asia and Australia.


(I'm going to work on finding out approximate prices for a trip to Melbourne/Sydney/Brisbane because that's what I plan on doing, so when I get a roundabout figure I'll post it in case others are interested).


 - are saying the release date for Gwen's album is December 5th (which would mean Australia gets it on the 3rd if that is in fact the release date).




 - Happy birthday to Gwen who turned 37 yesterday.


 - I've only got 5 weeks left until the end of my course so I'm sorry but I need to break from the site until then because I really need to work on my folio. There may be an occasional update or two but not alot. Good luck also to anyone who has exams coming up, especially those in VCE.

 - Thanks to Lamb Lovers, here's some info on the new LAMB currently in stores:

LAMB are lowering their prices by 20%.
The new Staff Icon shirts - come in 6-7 different colours, one of which is hot pink. There are also hoodies and sweatpants.
The Lambi Cami print is back - so far only on sweatpants and thermals.
The rainbow print LAMB outfit that says New York Los Angeles LAMB etc is based on a vintage piece Gwen found and it will have the word Tokyo spelled as Tokio on it because that's how she found it written on the vintage piece and she wants to stay true to that.


 - I just wanted to give all the Aussies a heads up, there's been a few LAMB bags showing up on ebay recently, almost all of which are fakes. You can spot a fake one by the Lesportsac text on the tag, it's alot more spaced out. For example, this one is fake whereas this one appears to be real. And especially since these bags aren't being made anymore, you've got to wonder where all these bags that are 'new with tags' are coming from. Just don't want to see anyone wasting their money.




 - Adrian just posted in the Band Room on the official forum:

'Hey you guys! Sorry about the long delay in posting. This has been a great summer for all of us! Personally, I have been doing fun family stuff like camping, going to county fairs, Disneyland, and lots of swimming with Mason. Looking forward to my favorite holiday, HALLOWEEN!!! Once again, i will be a clown.

On the music side of things, i will be performing at House of Blues, Anaheim w/ The Start opening for Rancid on Oct. 12.

Anybody watch Rock Star Supernova? That was my favorite show of the summer and i will most likely be going into the studio with Dilana to play drums on her record. Thanks to all for your ND support and we can't wait to bring you new music in the near future!! i hope all you have had a great summer, and for those you going back to school, kick ass, and do your homework!! Adrian

 - Thanks to Disneys Rude Boy, here's an interesting article from Rolling Stone in November 1998:

'There is absolutely no doubt that Michael Beinhorn is the hottest producer on the planet. With albums like the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Mother's Milk and Soundgarden's Superunknown already to his credit, Beinhorn set out to further embellish his resume by producing Hole's Celebrity Skin and Marilyn Manson's Mechanical Animals; currently, he is working on the Verve Pipe's follow-up to their multi-platinum 1996 effort, Villains. Now, as if being in a studio with so many massive egos wouldn't make him permanently claustrophobic, Beinhorn will forgo a lengthy vacation to take the helm on the next No Doubt album.

Late this summer, No Doubt completed seven tracks with producer Matthew Wilder (Tragic Kingdom) in a Los Angeles studio, but now that relationship looks over, as the group continues to write new material before they head east and begin work with Beinhorn early next year in a New York studio. "There was no big blowout [between No Doubt and Wilder]," according to Wilder's manager, Tim McDaniel. "It was a creative thing. We're hopeful that some of Matthew's work is gonna end up on this record."

Right now, there is no set release date for the new album, tentatively titled 'Magic's In The Makeup', which No Doubt agent Mitch Okmin estimates will take another three months to complete. Mid-summer, however, is considered an unofficial target date for its release.'

'"Gwen Stefani has great news for fans who want the singer to bring back her "Hollaback" vibe. "It's part two to the [Love, Angel, Music, Baby] record," Stefani said of her second, yet-untitled solo album. On Friday, the No Doubt singer presented her spring 2007 L.A.M.B. collection to rain-drenched fashion insiders such as Mena Suvari and Vogue Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour. The new mom dished to MTV News about her upcoming LP, her fashion inspirations and 4-month-old son Kingston James.

Stefani hopes the record, which she calls "ear candy," drops before 2007. She said she won't stray too far from what worked on her successful solo debut, even recycling some familiar collaborators. "There's a lot of songs that were left over from the last album, and there's some new songs I did with Pharrell," she said. "There's a lot of Pharrell on this record. I did some stuff with [No Doubt's] Tony [Kanal] and some stuff with Akon." MTV News also caught up with Swizz Beatz during Fashion Week and he said he's working with Gwen too. "She's always taking it to the next level," he said. "I love her background for music. She likes a lot of Caribbean sounds with hard beats." '

 - From

'Gwen's hubby, Gavin Rossdale, told MTV News he was "clearly very proud" of his wife's fashion work. "From what I've seen, it's good," he said. "It's very stylish, and it's got lots of good attitude."
Gwen's baby, Kingston, was backstage during the show.
"The baby is amazing," Gwen said. "He just had his little food backstage, and now he's having a nap. It's bizarre how he fits in, and I didn't know how it was going to work out. He's just there, and it's just exciting to know that I can go around the corner and just kiss him if I need to. He's the most delicious thing you've ever experienced. It's like a three-dimensional amazing thing to my life."

 - 'Gwen and Gavin named their son after Kingston, Jamaica. They had picked out the name six years ago and "were saving it up," she says. "We talked about it so long ago, we had a baby Rasta hat that we bought in Jamaica, and he got to go from the hospital in it." '


 - 'Kanye West, Christina Aguilera, Beyoncé, Gwen Stefani, Diddy, Nick Lachey and dozens more will be featured in "Big Red Book," a collection of photos benefiting model Petra Nemcova's Happy Hearts Fund. The charity organization, founded by Nemcova after her experience in the 2004 tsunami, aids children who have been affected by natural, economic and health-related disasters. The book is currently in production, with stars such as Russell Simmons, Serena Williams and Joaquin Phoenix having their photos shot in New York this week.'

 - Thanks to Carly:

'Whether it's sailor pants with racer-back tops or petticoats and Harajuku makeup, Gwen Stefani is always blazing trails in music and fashion. This week, the singer-designer invited us backstage at New York's Fashion Week to show us her spring 2007 collection for her signature line, L.A.M.B.
"I've always played Barbies and I'm still doing it!" Gwen confesses. "It's very greedy because at the end of the day I'm just making clothes that I want to wear."
Gwen's L.A.M.B. line reflects her own eclectic style, which she calls "fancy mixed with casual" and "a big contradiction."
"It's always been my personality to be kind of masculine, feminine -- the Hollywood glam mixed with the baggy pants and tennis shoes. The contrast is what L.A.M.B.'s all about."
She'll be showing about 30 to 40 pieces to buyers and fashionistas Friday at New York's Fashion Week, and as expected, her clothes are a wild mix of kimonos, animal prints and plaids with dramatic Egyptian eye makeup!
"The inspiration was Michelle Pfeiffer during the 'Scarface' period meets 1970s Rasta-roo boy," she says. "And there's a little bit of a global international vibe. It's just a big mish-mash. I designed the collection being pregnant, which is a weird state of mind. But being on the other side, I think the collection turned out great!"
Gwen gave birth to little Kingston three months ago with rocker hubby Gavin Rossdale and says her son has changed her life in unexpected ways. "You know what's amazing to me is how he just comes in my life and hangs out and rolls around with me. I'm shocked! I was like, 'How am I going to make this work out?' And it just works out perfect. He just makes my life great."
She even designed a line of baby booties for him and gushes, "I wear a watch now! I didn't used to wear a watch."
This Christmas, she'll also be introducing her new passion -- luxury handbags.
"We had done the handbags before and at that time it was amazing and now I wanted to graduate to doing something that was a little more luxurious." '

 - From Gwen

"This Fall, Gwen will release a Limited Edition series of eight dolls entitled Love. Angel. Music. Baby. Inspired by her album and tour, each doll will reflect Gwen's eclectic onstage incarnations. Ranging from her Hollaback Girl to the fashion-forward Harajuku Girls of Tokyo, the dolls in this high-end line will reflect the distinctive style and personality which have made Gwen Stefani an icon. "I thought the dolls would be a good opportunity to capture some of the key looks from the album and the tour," said Gwen. "The Harajuku Girls and I wore such wicked costumes we had to share them with the world again."
Each doll comes with interchangeable outfits along with exclusive Gwen collectibles like posters, pocket mirrors, trading cards and other stylish accessories. Using images and characters from her music videos and onstage performances, the dolls are truly an extension of Gwen¹s music and vision. "The dolls are another dimension to the album and the tour, another layer to the world of Love. Angel. Music. Baby" said Gwen."


 - 'Gwen Stefani has teamed with Huckleberry Toys to launch a line of limited-edition dolls modeled after the pop star, outfitting the toys in clothes worn by the "I'm Just a Girl" singer on her Harajuku Lovers tour. The Love. Angel. Music. Baby.-branded line will include eight different 10-inch dolls, four featuring the 36-year-old's platinum hair and visage, and four based on her Harajuku Girl dancers.
Each ensemble will have a real-life counterpart, with the dolls only donning clothes that have outfitted the pop star and her ever-present Japanese street-styled dancers on her recent world tour. As such, the fashions should look familiar to die-hard Stefani fans and casual tabloid perusers alike.

Among the dolls ready to hit the shelves are Tick-Tock Gwen, featuring the doll, well, dolled up in white leggings, a baby blue pinafore dress, platform shoes and black headband, as first worn by Stefani during her "What You Waiting For?" video. Bananas Gwen is aptly dressed as its namesake in the "Hollaback Girl" video, in hot pants, knee-length white boots, a blue, white and gold marching band jacket and a red hat emblazoned with a "G." A third doll, Cool Gwen, could just as easily be modeled after Marilyn Monroe, with its platinum bobbed and curled locks and sparkling dress.
The dolls will each be available with accessories inspired by the No Doubt frontwoman, including collectible posters, pocket mirrors and trading cards. Due out this November, each Stefani L.A.M.B. doll will retail for $24.95 at Target and selected other stores in the U.S. and Canada. Unfortunately, no plans are in the works for Gavin Rossdale and baby Kingston companion dolls.'

 - Thanks to Julio:

'Gwen Stefani is no longer just a girl. Now she's a doll, too. The singer, actress and fashion designer announced Tuesday that she will bring her trademark rock 'n' roll style to the toy industry with a series of limited-edition dolls. There are eight fashionable dolls in all, and Stefani has dubbed the line Love. Angel. Music. Baby. The dolls are meant to replicate the colorful looks Stefani sported on her latest world tour. "The Harajuku Girls and I wore such wicked costumes we had to share them with the world again," Stefani said in a statement. Each 10-inch doll looks like the platinum-blond rocker or one of her Harajuku Girl dancers and comes with Stefani-inspired collectibles such as posters, pocket mirrors or trading cards. The dolls will be available for $24.95 at and other retailers.'

 - Thanks to Hella Goose, "Pharell was on VH1's Top 20 yesterday and they asked him what he had coming out this year, and the first thing he mentioned was Gwen's album. He said something along the lines of "Just so ya'll know the new Gwen Stefani is amazing, its crazy. It's done."

 - Thanks to Sue, the current issue of NW has a double page article on Gavin having lunch with a friend and a bunch of crap about him cheating, don't get it.


 - I'm almost done with the design of the new site so now I've just got to get all the content in and then start working on the new gallery (which will take quite awhile), but if anyone has any suggestions or comments on what they'd like to see change for the new site let me know on the tagboard    =)




 - 'Gwen Stefani may not be staging a runway show for her L.A.M.B. line during New York Fashion Week, but the singer and designer said she was just as busy putting together a smaller presentation to showcase the new spring collection.

Stefani, who was in New York for a private event Thursday at the Schifter + Partners Showroom to introduce her handbags for the brand, said she was expecting to see samples for the contemporary collection this week and added she herself was interested to see how they would turn out. "My mind was on so many things," said Stefani in reference to being pregnant with her now three-month-old son, Kingston, who joined her at the event in his own baby stroller designed from camouflage-print canvas.

"I didn't always find it as easy to make decisions this time around. But it's really fun to have the brand to this point now. We've done so much work to establish what it's about and I am working with people who are so passionate and good at what they do that it comes together more easily." Stefani, who is also putting the finishing touches on a second solo album, said adding accessories to the L.A.M.B. line was a real mountain to climb, but she doesn't want to stop at footwear, watches and handbags. She said she is still looking for a partner with which she can produce a sunglass line, adding: "I've always loved a good pair of sunglasses."


 - 'Eschewing a star-studded party that would undoubtedly have been hounded by paparazzi clamoring for post-baby photos, Gwen Stefani opted for a calmer, more intimate affair Thursday, when she and Tim Schifter launched their higher-priced L.A.M.B handbag collection. An exclusive group of retailers and editors were on hand for the hour-long event, held at the four-month old Schifter + Partners Showroom in the Flatiron District. Even Kingston, Stefani’s three-month-old son with husband Gavin Rossdale, was present, cradled in a stroller adorned with camouflage-print canvas. The cozy space, lined with wall-to-wall shelves displaying the 33 different styles of handbags, was anchored by four large white fiberglass tables, inspired by the trunks bands use when on tour, according to Schifter. The bags, which retail for $395 to $700, will make their debut on December 1. 

Gwen: "It’s still so young despite having come so far. I never would have dreamed it would come this far. I’d be up here with the bags around me looking as good as they do. The idea is just to keep going and going. I just want to keep going and get more sophisticated and be really broad, but at the same time funky. I’m thinking about launching a line of sunglasses next."

The bags will be launched nationally with Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Saks Fifth Avenue, Henri Bendel’s, Holt-Renfrew in Canada,, and in a select group of specialty stores like Intermix.

You can check out the designs and full article here.

 - Gwen is rumoured to have been cast the lead in the remake of the Tennessee Williams film Baby Doll. For the record though I don't think it's true.

 - Thanks to HotTrack, Gwen reportedly tried out for a film called Black Dalia Medium. You can watch the trailer here


 - Thanks to Julio, he recently spoke with Baby of the Harajuku Girls about the rumoured Gwen tour and she replied: "It's a rumour. But it might be true, you never know! But the fact is...we'll be back soon." She could either be referring to the rumoured tour or for Gwen's second album.


 - Thanks to Kate, taken from a recent interview with Pharrell:

'Q: Why do you think no one cared about the single you did with Gwen Stefani?
A: The album is really based on being boutique-minded. That song was just meant to be small and special to my fans. It was for them. It wasn't for the huge masses or whatever. The whole album feels handmade. If you go through it and listen to it, it feels numbered.'


 - I was browsing through the old Photos Of The Day of the band from 2000 yesterday and I came across one of Tom which appears to have been taken in Melbourne. It was posted on the site on June 8th 2000 which fits in with the band being in the country for a short promo tour in May 2000. You can view the photo here.

 - I was also browsing the gallery on Sin's Gwen and in his gallery he has high quality photos from both Melbourne and Sydney ND concerts from both October 2000 and August 2002, they're awesome photos, definately worth checking out.




 - From Lamb Lovers:

Stefani's L.A.M.B. Grows the Mix
Stefani, the singer who designs clothing and accessories for L.A.M.B., as well as for her lower-price streetwear label, Harajuku Lovers, is melding her knack for youth trends and love of European luxury in L.A.M.B.'s 33 styles, which will hit retail floors on Dec. 1.

The collection is divided into two groups, Signature and Love, which are differentiated by materials and colors but unified by a theme emphasizing "irreverent luxury," according to Tim Schifter, chairman and chief executive officer of the four-month-old accessories company, New York's Schifter + Partners, which is collaborating with Stefani to produce the line. Stefani is a minority shareholder in Schifter.

The Signature set is designed in canvas that is printed with a diamond pattern interspersed with the letter "L" in old English script and portraits of a lamb wearing a crown. It is available in saddle brown or what L.A.M.B. refers to as ombré Rasta, which fades from green to yellow to red. In the Love collection, chunky brass padlocks plated in gold tones and leather tassels dangle from oiled leather handbags in black, stone and white. Both groups integrate a black-and-white striped faille lining, white leather or burnout velvet trim running down the center and an enameled metal plaque in a robin's egg blue.

"I designed the bags for myself," Stefani wrote via e-mail in the middle of a packed schedule taking care of her 11-week-old son, Kingston, and working on a second solo album.
At the same time, she said she wanted to create a wide range of sizes and styles so that every need can be met. "I wanted to create everyday bags that were wearable, classic and timeless," she added.

Schifter hopes the L.A.M.B. handbag collection will hit the sweet spot between mall-based mass retailers and designer labels.
"Women today are dressing younger and more contemporary as they get older," Schifter said. "There's opportunity for enormous growth in the contemporary market because the consumer base has grown."

Core handbag styles average from $395 to $550 for the Signature collection and $550 to $700 for the Love line, although there are less expensive items such as $75 key pouches.

While the owner of LeSportsac, Schifter collaborated with Stefani on three collections of L.A.M.B. for LeSportsac bags that generated about a third of the company's more than $100 million in annual wholesale sales. In November 2005, New York's Accessory Network Group and Japan's Itochu Corp. acquired LeSportsac — which was founded by Schifter's parents in 1974 — reportedly for more than $100 million. Upon the expiration of a six-month nonsolicitation restriction prohibiting Schifter from directly or indirectly soliciting customers of LeSportsac products, Schifter began meeting with retailers to introduce and take orders for the L.A.M.B. handbag collection late last week during New York market.

Schifter + Partners also is working on handbags and small leather goods for Harajuku Lovers, being launched in September with a target of 450 doors.
Schifter said L.A.M.B.'s clothing, which is sold by retailers such as Kitson, Nordstrom, Saks Fifth Avenue and Bloomingdale's, has paved the way for accessories. Since the clothing line bowed in spring 2004, Stefani has introduced L.A.M.B.-brand watches, and shoes for women and babies. An eyewear license is in the works.

"The L.A.M.B. customer is extremely loyal," said Erin Crandall, head buyer for, which is based in Madison, Wis., and has a buying office in New York.
Crandall said L.A.M.B. is one of Shopbop's strongest lines. Still, she passed on carrying L.A.M.B.'s shoes because they were too edgy and masculine to complement the line's top-selling feminine looks. She predicted that her customers would like the handbags, however. Shopbop currently carries styles priced between $400 and $700 from brands like Kooba, Botkier and Gustto. As the contemporary and designer handbag markets begin to overlap in price, she said, "entering a market right now and having a great bag that retails for under $500 is a good thing."

Schifter plans to limit distribution for L.A.M.B. bags to 250 doors in department and specialty stores in the first season. During the first two days of showing the L.A.M.B. collection, he said Henri Bendel, Nordstrom, Kitson and Holt Renfrew, among others, ordered the line. He plans to expand the distribution of the bags to France, Japan, Hong Kong and South Korea for fall 2007. During a visit to Los Angeles earlier this month, he was scouting a location on Melrose Place for a design studio and showroom for Schifter + Partners.

 - 'They may have always thought of themselves as extremely fashionable, but now Kanye West and Gwen Stefani have empirical proof that they're style leaders — the pair have been named to Vanity Fair's 2006 International Best-Dressed List for the first time. Stefani, whose funky L.A.M.B. line has snagged many a teen's allowance since its inception two years ago, shares her honor with Oprah Winfrey, Condoleezza Rice, Selma Blair, Sofia Coppola and Renee Zellweger.

"Gwen and Kanye are big-time style leaders," said Amy Fine Collins, social correspondent for Vanity Fair. "They both have such distinct, strong styles and are completely visible and influential. "[Gwen] is fearless," Collins continued. "She can go drop-dead glamorous and pull it off better than anyone else. She goes to extremes of glamour, partly by channeling old-time movie stars like Jean Harlow and by looking to artists for inspiration like Frida Kahlo, who she named her as one of her style influences. She is not afraid of looking like someone else, being glamorous in an elegant way and sexy and risqué without looking trashy. She understands fashion from the inside out because she's a designer too. She's also in touch with her masculine side and gets inspiration from her husband's [Gavin Rossdale] closet. She experiments and she succeeds."


An individual must be on the best-dressed list four times in order to be inducted into the hall of fame, which includes Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Tina Turner, Bianca Jagger, Iman, Sophia Lauren and Queen Noor of Jordan, along with Rolling Stones drummer Charlie Watts, David Bowie, Fred Astaire and Bryan Ferry. This year Kate Moss joins the hall of fame and appears on the cover of the magazine wearing only patent-leather stiletto boots and white gloves. Surprisingly, Gwen beat out Madonna this year, who has been on the best-dressed list before. "We look for people whose personality is coming through in their clothes. You can see inside their soul with what they wear." '

 - Thanks to Sunday Boy, Q magazine recently reviews LITTK:

Main feature: Two stars

Extras: Two stars

Recorded in their Anaheim hometown as the Tragic Kingdom album reached its multi-platinum peak in '97, No Doubt are in Roman Empire mode during this live film. All the early hits are here - Don't Speak, Just A Girl, Spiderwebs - yet only the die-hards will relish their stilted performance. A terrible ham, Stefani stalks the stage like a WW2 pin-up, with high-kicking dance routines showing a pure showbiz soul. Her band's ska-lite tunes are nothing like as captivating.

 - A few people have asked me recently for details on the LITTK easter eggs, here is the list again of where to find them:

1. Main menu > audio setup (don't hit enter) > click left arrow to highlight oranges

Among the celebrity guests like Britney Spears, Pink, and Christina Aguilera that asked to perform with you when you were still regulars at The Viper Room, who proved unforgettable?

KIMBERLY: "Gwen Stefani. We’ve always said that she’s the missing link to The Pussycat Dolls. Had she not brought people from her label with her when she watched our show, we wouldn’t have been signed up. Of course, she also was wonderful performing the standards ‘Big Spender’ and ‘Fever’ then."

LAMB bags will be primarily leather with some printed fabric pieces and leather trim. "What we're working on now is creating a signature, something that will roll over every season.

"Gwen is definately out to make sure he's the youngest person on the best-dressed list," jokes a friend of the singer. Gwen, 36, may have another little one very soon, too! Gwen's only been a mom for a few weeks, but she's been telling pals that she's ready for baby No. 2. She told a friend that she's cherishing every moment of motherhood -- even the dirty diapers and late-night feedings. "She really wants a little girl," the insider says. "She wants to be able to play dress-up with a daughter."

 - Thanks to lenuk, here is an article from awhile ago with Gwen talking about Sophie Muller:
Gwen Stefani talks about Muller
'Sophie Muller is one of my most talented friends. She can and will only do projects that she is inspired by. She is driven by creativity and the love for what she does and as a result she never compromises. I consider her a true artist.'
'I was a fan of Sophie's work before I even imagined working with her. She has a very pronounced style and taste that drew me in. I think she has the gift of being able to bring out the artist's personality, emotion and style. After working with her for the first time on our ‘Don't Speak’ video, we became close friends and since then we have made seven videos together.' (This is now 9 videos because Sophie has directed both Gwen Stefani's "Cool" and "Luxurious").

'Our ‘Simple Kind of Life’ video is one of my favourites and is the one closest to my heart. When I first wrote the song and I played it to her in my living room (she had been staying with me at the time), it was obvious that she would be the one to do the video. She loves to collaborate and is motivated and inspired by the creativity of the artists she works with. We both had the same goal of wanting to make something that could emotionally affect people when they saw it and we did everything together to try to make that happen. The images needed to reflect the lyrics and emotion behind the song so to start we scouted locations in east L.A. together. We designed the wedding dress based on a John Galliano fashion show we both had seen and loved a few years back. The extensive amount of preparation put into the video is very important to Sophie and she loves to have meetings to discuss the project in order to make it great. On the set her direction is humble and simple but she knows what she wants and knows when she gets it. A woman in charge in the male-dominated world of filmmaking makes the whole experience that much more exciting.'


'I think after all the inspiration that goes into the shoot, her true gift is in the editing. She has a way of making every cut have a reason and meaning. The videos have a life of their own and become better each time you watch them. I am always in shock the first time I see them and then after a few more times I am actually amazed. She has taught me a lot and I feel very lucky to have worked with her. With her images of us, she has brought people closer to No Doubt and I am truly grateful.’

 - From

'Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have been making the most of being back on home territory with an invitation to family friends Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale to pop over for Sunday afternoon. Over the US holiday weekend the guys, who included four-year-old Maddox, had fun racing about on quad bikes at the acting superstars' Santa Barbara estate. Gavin and his wife have been friendly with Brad in the past and are re-igniting their friendship with the births of their children. While the boys played with their toys, new mums Gwen and Angelina must have had plenty to natter about as they tended to their little ones, apparently sporting matching baby slings.' Photos from the day can be found here.

'Gavin Rossdale shares his fatherhood likes and dislikes.
New dad Gavin Rossdale seems to be suffering from the same complaints of most parents.
"The baby's great. I'm enjoying every minute of having him around. I even took pictures of the birth," the rocker told OK. "The only thing I don't like is when he cries while I'm holding him. I always worry that I'm upsetting him or something."
He and wife Gwen Stefani recently welcomed their first child, son Kingston James, into the world.'
