Gwen’s good friend and former stylist Andrea Lieberman (though she has styled her recently in magazines), is releasing her new jewelry line for ALC soon and spoke to Rolling Stone magazine. She praises Gwen by calling her an “icon” and “an amazing visionary” — we couldn’t agree more! Andrea helped Gwen launch L.A.M.B. back in 2004 and is credited for helping her put together some of her best looks over the years. We wish her the best of luck! It’s also good to know she’s a huge reggae fan!
Rolling Stone — Andrea Liebermann’s clothing line, ALC, provides a smart and versatile wardrobe for alpha-females â€“ a demographic she’s well experienced in attiring. Known as one of music’s premier stylists, Liebermann gained fame dressing the likes of Gwen Stefani, Jennifer Lopez, Shirley Manson and Mary J. Blige in some of their most memorable video, stage and red carpet moments.
Some of those relationships grew into even more collaborative roles â€“ she helped Stefani launch clothing line L.A.M.B., and Manson ended up playing muse to Liebermann’s own line years later. Now with the launch of ALC’s Spring 2012 jewelry line, which features music-spiked staples like refined punk studs and brass, crystal-accented handcuffs, she’s ready to take her design endeavors to new heights.
Are you attracted to working with powerful women?
The people I’ve worked with are icons. Gwen is an amazing visionary; I haven’t had a hand in her projects for a long time, but I love what she does. I like to think we’ve all influenced each other in some way; sometimes one thing leads to another. I met Shirley Manson through Sophie Muller, who also worked with Gwen. Then, I ended up styling a Garbage video [for “Tell Me Where It Hurts”], and Shirley became the muse for my first collection in 2009. She represents my ideal woman: strong, smart, ridiculously cool. Mary J. Blige, too.
