Gwen Stefani is working on more pint-size fashions for Target: “We’ve got new collections coming and coming and coming. For the kids stuff, I draw from Japanese inspiration or from Japanese kids clothes.” When asked who is more fun to dress, tots or adults, she responded, “I love to do both. I really enjoy doing the children’s right now probably because it’s new.” [InStyle]

Say what she will about Kate Middleton’s eyeliner and normal-person clothes, but Vivienne Westwood created a red-carpet collection in honor of the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee. [Grazia]
