After No Doubt’s double-platinum retrospective singles collection The Singles 1992-2003, featuring the hit single “It’s My Life,” Gwen released two multi-platinum selling solo albums. Love.Angel.Music.Baby was released in 2004 with the number one single “Hollaback Girl” which was also the first digital download to sell over one million copies in the United States. The album also spawned the hit single “Cool.” Gwen’s second multi-platinum solo record The Sweet Escape was released in 2006 and featured the hit single of the same name. In 2009, Gwen returned to No Doubt for a 50-plus city North American tour and in 2012, the band released their sixth album Push and Shove which debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.
In addition to her singing-songwriting career, Gwen is widely recognized as a trendsetter and accomplished designer within the fashion industry. Gwen’s first fashion line L.A.M.B., launched in 2003, is a luxurious collection of clothing, handbags and shoes, defined by Gwen’s innate sense of style which often features a playful juxtaposition between classic Hollywood movie star glamour and more modern street influences. In 2005, Gwen launched cult brand Harajuku Lovers, a playful and pop art inspired line that reflects Gwen’s love of Japanese culture and fashion. Gwen’s most recent fashion projects include DWP (Design With Purpose) the already sold out casual yet luxurious ready-to-wear line that launched in February 2014 and Gx – a line of affordably priced fashion forward accessories that launched in March 2014.
Gwen is also actively involved in her charitable efforts, namely the EB Medical Research Foundation and Save the Children.
