    With gorgeous baby in tow (the smaller one), Gwen Stefani presented another tough-girl LAMB collection for fall 2010 at MAC & Milk. 
    The punky and youthful looks for next season are quintessentially L.A.M.B. -- lots of cargo, dog tags, etc., but we were thrilled to see some grown-up cuts in pleated wool trousers and a nicely draped silk jersey dress.

    The highlights came from stand-out prints including plaid, tribale-esque, a dingy watercolor, leopard and camo, as well as a focus on the waist, with corsets over manly oxfords and layers of belts atop high-rise pleats. 

    The models teetered on sky high platform booties and resembled something between the bride of Chucky and Barbie gone bad (in a good way).  Hair was like a doll's -- bouncy curls and heavy bangs, with makeup taking any prisoners, combining smoky eyes and dark, rich lips. 

    Gwen popped out at the end in a leather suit -- short shorts and a crop jacket -- a kicky look we hope to see for fall.
