Showbiz Spy — Gwen Stefani admits she was a bag of nerves when she had to hit the runway in front of an audience during one of her L.A.M.B. fashion shows at New York Fashion Week.
The No Doubt star says sheâ€™s no catwalk queen.
â€œI do get nervous right before the girls go out, and I donâ€™t like going out there myself,â€ she said.
â€œThe catwalk is just a different place to the stage. I find it so much more scary. Everyone is there and can be critical about your work. Iâ€™m proud of my work but itâ€™s a daunting place to be.â€
Stefani recently admitted the success of her fashion line has taken her by surprise.
â€œIâ€™m still so blown away that weâ€™ve got this far,â€ she said in September last year.
â€œWhen I first started, I really didnâ€™t know what I was doing at all.
â€œI mean, Iâ€™ve made clothes my whole life, but I was just naÃ¯ve about the fashion world. â€œBut I think itâ€™s [successful] because Iâ€™ve been really involved, you know?
â€œPicking the samples, inspirations, color palette. I have a great team of people helping me.â€
NY Times — Gwen Stefaniâ€™s L.A.M.B. collection is another rare celebrity success. And there was no doubt that the collection was in her image, as the models wore the sporty separates with about as much makeup, fluffy blonde hair and tough but sexy boots (not to mention visible garter belts) as the inspirational singer.
â€œI love the process â€” and I put a lot of time into this,â€ said Ms. Stefani. â€œI see the same creative struggle and pressure to get there as in music, but fashion does not have the same level of emotional stress.â€
