A stellar end to the Spring 2011 shows, Gwen Stefani‘s L.A.M.B. presentation at New York Fashion Week woke up jaded editors with both a killer reggae-theme soundtrack (Sean Paul, M.I.A., Santogold) and a vibrant collection to match.

With husband Gavin Rossdale and son Kingston sitting front-row, Stefani delivered an African-inspired collection that banked on bright wax-block prints splashed on everything from minidresses and crop tops to trousers and drop-crotch jumpers. Mixed in with the Africa theme were a few tailored suits and pieces reflecting Stefani’s own decade-old signature style, including midriff-baring tops, lots of punk plaids, and oversize fold-over pants.

While the collection started stronger than it ended, the showing overall – and no doubt (wink wink) the thumping beats, the knowledge that this was the last show of the week, and seeing uber-adorable Kingston run to his mother during her finale walk – had attendees leaving with smiles on their faces.

Victoria and David BeckhamVictoria Beckham (forever Posh Spice to me) has had success as a fashion designer with her shapely designs slash cheaper version of designer dresses. We have recently heard rumours that she is launching a menswear line to add to her current projects and has reportedly convinced my boyfriend David Beckham to be in charge. Set to launch in the Spring of 2011, the line will be a full range of men’s couture; tailored suits, sharp daywear and eveningwear. Maybe even a Manchester United boxer set (I’m hoping).

A source told the Daily Star that “…Victoria has been trying to persuade him to do it for a while and he’s finally succumbed. She’s reassured him that he has an eye for fashion”.
