In which No Doubt's people rip off Kate Lanphear's people...

Obviously I'm a 90's girl all the way, and I have a profound soft spot in my heart for the band No Doubt - and Gwen Stefani in particular. But dammit guys!! Somebody's doing somebody a huge amount of dirty...

Two years ago, jewelry designer Eddie Borgo convinced his friend (and ELLE style director) Kate Lanphear to model for his online campaign. It was shot by the superbly talented Paul Maffi, and this is the fucking awesomeness that came out of it:


 Then a few days ago, No Doubt teamed up with Major Lazer and Busy Signal for their "Push and Shove" video - and here are some screenshots I snagged that looked...familiar. 


So like, I'm not trying to go around pointing the finger or anything, but...Yes I am, I'm pointing the finger. That's thievery. Straight up.

this whole album is black and white, down to her nails, she always wears bangles and i think its just a coincidence, she has always been the one to give credit where credit is due, and the whole band went With an old feeling from days gone inspired by groups like madness and pixies from the 80s...

This is definitely different enough to be either a coincidence or an homage.

No Doubt is always original and Gwen would never bite off of someone else. She has to much style to copy anyone else.
