Stylish rocker Gwen Stefani was left speechless when she met British fashion icon Vivienne Westwood, because she'd finally come into contact with her design idol.

The IT'S MY LIFE singer, who has her own clothing label, Lamb, is renowned for her unique dress sense and loves buying vintage designer pieces.

She recalls, "I bought a Vivienne Westwood corset for $800 (GBP450) - with my own money - and wore it in a video.

"Then I got to meet her, which was like meeting the Queen. I was like, 'Aaargh!'"

And the No Doubt frontwoman, was also moved by meeting Christian Dior designer John Galliano.

She adds, "I got invited to a Christian Dior show and I cried."
