A singer since childhood, Gwen has fronted the band No Doubt for the past 22 years.  During this time she has achieved worldwide success as a performer, songwriter and recording artist selling almost 50 million albums worldwide. No Doubt’s five genre-blending albums have showcased her adept songwriting and poignant lyrics with number one hits like "Don't Speak", "Just A Girl", and "Hey Baby" along with many others.

After the double-platinum retrospective Singles Collection, featuring the hit "It's My Life," Gwen released two highly successful solo albums. Love.Angel.Music.Baby was released in 2004 and The Sweet Escape was released in 2006.  In 2009, after a nearly five-year hiatus, No Doubt completed a 50-plus city North American tour performing for more than 750,000 fans that summer. The following year they were invited to perform for President Barack Obama and first lady Michelle Obama, Oprah Winfrey, Sir Paul McCartney and others as part of the annual Kennedy Center Honors. In 2012, No Doubt released their sixth studio album “Push And Shove” which debuted #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart. The band is currently writing and recording new music to be released this year.

In addition to her singer-songwriter career Gwen’s original sense of style and lifelong passion for creating her own clothing designs culminated in the launch of her fashion label L.A.M.B. (Love, Angel, Music, Baby) in 2003.  Gwen is widely recognized as a trendsetter and accomplished designer within the fashion industry L.A.M.B is a luxurious collection of clothing, handbags, shoes and fragrance, based on Stefani's personal style and aesthetic.  In 2005, Gwen launched her highly successful second brand Harajuku Lovers.  Harajuku Lovers is a playful line of apparel, bags, shoes, fragrance, stationary and electronics that reflects Gwen’s love of Japanese culture and Pop Art.  L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers are sold in over 2500 retail doors worldwide. In 2011, Gwen launched Harajuku Mini exclusively for Target in all 1700+ doors.  Harajuku Mini is a designer children’s brand that includes shoes, bags, accessories, swimwear, and home.

In 2011, Gwen became actively involved in the relief and recovery effort in Japan.  In addition to donating $1,000,000 to Save The Children’s Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund, Gwen created a charity auction and limited edition T-shirt with 100% of proceeds benefiting the relief effort.
