Gwen Stefan’s dress stolen

FULLERTON, California:

A red vinyl dress worn by pop singer Gwen Stefan of ‘No Doubt’ for the band’s first hit album has been stolen from a museum. The dress, which was on a mannequin behind a plastic glass wall, disappeared from an exhibit dedicated to the history of rock music in Orange County. Stefan, 35, who attended high school and college in the county, wore the sleeveless dress with matching red boots for the cover of the 1995 album, ‘Tragic Kingdom’, which included the hits “Don’t Speak” and “Just a Girl” and sold about 15 million copies worldwide.

The exhibit curator, Jim Washburn, said the dress could be worth up to $5,000. A police investigation is focusing on two young women seen near the exhibit at the Fullerton Museum Centre with backpacks around the time of the theft. Police have made no arrests. — AP
