When word got out about Design With Purpose, Gwen Stefani's new clothing line with denim king Michael Glasser, we got excited. Not too excited, though, because if we've learned anything about celebrity collaborations, it's that they love to tease us with plenty of promo looong before the product drops (*ACHEM* Nicki Minaj for Kmart, The Key by Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga's ARTPOP). And that's fine—we're used to it. But now, just days after Gwen's initial announcement, we're already getting some behind-the-scenes photos of DWP's lookbook shoot AND a promise that more will be coming soon. All of this with a projected spring 2014 shelf date? Gwen, you're spoiling us! *blushes*

If you've ever wanted to dress like Gwen Stefani, pulling off her punky, polished look is about to become a whole lot easier (abdominal prep optional). After having stepped away from designing for L.A.M.B. in recent years, WWD reports that Stefani is ready to get back into the fashion game with the help of denim guru Michael Glasser (who's behind 7 For All Mankind, Citizens of Humanity, and Rich & Skinny). But instead of continuing to focus on the profitable wardrobe staple that he's known for, Glasser says their label, DWP (Design With Purpose), actually aims to add a few new basics.
Gwen Stefani's OPI nail polish set.
A new year means a new class of music x brand collaborations and up first is Gwen Stefani’s long-awaited nail polish line for OPI. We first reported on the perfectly matched collaboration last October (Stefani has always been a nail art pro and a pioneer at the intersection of music and fashion) and, last November, posted the leggy and very platinum promo pics for the line’s signature shade, “Over & Over.” Now you can grab the collection at ULTA—with the exception of “Over & Over” (no word yet on when that shade will be available for sale).
Step aside, Angelina's right leg. There's a new show-stealing limb in town and it belongs to Gwen Stefani. More than a month after announcing that she'd be collaborating with OPI on her very own nail polish collection, Stefani flashed some majorly toned leg in one of two new promo pics posted on Twitter. Hey baby, hey baby, HEY. Both shots are totally drenched in a deep, rich red—from her dual-slit, Asian-inspired gown to her lips, nails and the background itself. It's striking, for sure, but it also happens to be the line's signature shade: Over & Over A-Gwen. SO PUNNY!
