Some of you were in a tizzy yesterday, when Gwen Stefani revealed her lawsuit against Forever 21 - she claims the store was knocking off some of her Harajuku Girls designs. But apparently, the musician relies on her own copy cat instincts more than we might have known. Flypaper spotted their Giraffe Modal tee -- a dead ringer for a design from Crowded Teeth. We did some further research, and it seems that Crowded Teeth did have it first - their shirt debuted in Fall 2006 , while Gwen's looks like a new addition to a t-shirt group called "The Modus" - in the past, she's made Lion Modus tees and Elephant Modus tees. We know that graphics - like textiles - sometimes get bought from one firm by several fashion houses, but still - What's happening here? --SARAH MUEHLBAUER
