WATCH: Gwen Stefani Dresses the 'Idol' Ladies in L.A.M.B.

04/08/2011 at 01:00 PM ET

She may have designed her line L.A.M.B. just for herself, but Gwen Stefani was willing to share her wardrobe with the ladies of American Idol this week when she dressed them for Wednesday’s show. Thursday night, Idol took us backstage to the fitting session — every girl’s dream! — where Stefani helped choose outfits for the budding superstars. Admitting that she was not a stylist — and even a bit nervous! – the No Doubt rocker first pulled pants and a jacket “literally out of my closet” for contestant Hailey Reinhart. She ended up choosing a different outfit, though: a checkered linen tabard top and leather pants. Pia Toscano, who was sent home Thursday night, rocked a “tribal” animal-print jumpsuit and layered on some accessories. And 16-year-old Lauren Alaina, the show’s youngest star, skipped a look she found too “biker” and opted for gingham shorts and a matching top, covered up with a black blazer — the first look Stefani pulled. “That’s totally something I would wear, for real,” she said. The designer explained that she wanted her clothes to give the girls a confidence boost on stage: “What you’re wearing is the last thing you want to think of.” Tell us: What did you think of Stefani’s picks?
