Yesterday’s L.A.M.B. show was broken into six parts: Soldier Girls, Rasta Ragga Muffins, London Girls, Buffalo Girls, Mod Girls, and Glamour Girls. It may sound like mix of random inspirations, but once the looks came out on the runway the connection was obvious. These are all the looks Gwen has cycled through during her career.
The opening group of Soldier Girls wore, unsurprisingly, army green looks that were all tightly tailored. With only eight looks, the Soldier Girls section was brief, but left me wanting more. Stefani could have done an entire show off the army girl riff, and it would have been amazing. (And maybe more satisfying than the constant changing of models and music.)
Next, the Rasta Raga Muffins wore looks in warm tones and prints, then the London Girls took the catwalk in plaids. The Buffalo Girls section was the most interesting, with more refined elements like a chic navy trench over camel cropped trousers. Then came the Mod Girls, in black and white, and finally the Glamor Girls, in all black with gold accessories.
In its entirety, the show had all the elements we’ve come to expect from Stefani: schoolgirl suits, tons of plaid, oversized tops, all fused together with Stefani’s too-cool-for-school attitude.
