MUSIC AND FASHION: GWEN STEFANI AND SHALOM HARLOW HANG OUT

This segment is like watching unicorns eat sandwiches. You can’t even be mad at Gwen Stefani or Shalom Harlow for their surreal prettiness, because it has nothing to do with you. Gwen Stefani is so beautiful and Shalom is so beautiful and when they stand together you have to get a pinhole box even to look at them straight because it’s like staring into the sun. And the worst part is, they look this fantastic while going to the gym.

First of all, Gwen and Shalom are both wearing oversized sweatpants, which immediately reminds you of how attractive that whole look can be. Gwen is wearing a cut-up teeny wifebeater, baby barrettes and lipstick, and Shalom is not wearing a bra. They hop onto the treadmill for cardio at Equinox, and the thinness of their midsections and the thinness of their eyebrows are distracting for a while. Gwen does make a point to note that she works out not to maintain her figure but so that she’ll be strong and agile for shows. If you’ve ever seen girl work those high kicks and push-ups onstage, you’ll know what she’s talking about.

Then it’s off to the Roseland, where Gwen’s clothes lay thick on the ground. This time, she’s wearing baggy trousers (which again reminds you of how flattering that hip-hugging, stove-leg silhouette is), a different-colored cropped tank and a retro floral shrunken cardigan. It’s show and tell as Gwen pulls outfits out of her luggage that she hand sewed and talks about how her mother used to make outfits for her when she was young. The dresses are hyper-colorful and cartoonish. They’re so obviously the prototypes for the Harajuku Gothic-Lolita-froufrou of Gwen’s line L.A.M.B. and Shalom remarks on how much of her clothing has been cut up and reconfigured. It’s no surprise that Gwen Stefani would later have a successful clothing line. Her sense of style is as unique, weird and cool as her music.

STREET STYLE: BACK TO SCHOOL SHOES

This is the weirdest little segment where we just see a bunch of feet and hear random city chitchat. We're presented with chunk heels, lug heels, Mary Janes, T-straps, peep-toes, contrasted white shoes with black tights, animal print ballet slippers with heels and suede knee-length boots.

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
