African influenced style steps up big in 2011

In the spring of 2009, we saw an abundance of African influenced designs walk down the runway in New York, including hairdos for Christian Dior. This year, Gwen Stefani introduces her Spring 2011 L.A.M.B. collection that is steeped in unique, unabashed African style. Stefani makes it hard to look away, and we, for one, don’t want to.
