Repping her hometown of Anaheim, California, Stefani showed off a few set pieces. “It’s a miracle” everything was ready on time, the singer told PEOPLE. “I was getting nervous two or three days before!”
Stefani’s wide range of costumes for the show were designed by Custom Moschino by Jeremy Scott, Versace, Marchesa Couture and The Blonds.
From feathers to sequins and sparkles, there’s an eye-popping Vegas-inspired outfit for every part of the show.
Just before Stefani took the stage for her inaugural performance, a message came across her phone. The text was from her 12-year-old son, Kingston, and the message read, “Break a leg, Mom. I love you.”
Stefani’s costumes included a number of stunning pieces, including this bedazzled monogrammed cape.
Of headlining her own Vegas residency, Stefani told PEOPLE, “It feels like a chapter. I’ve done this long enough to know that when it’s happening, this is it. It just feels so good to get to this point.”
“This is the first night. I’ll remember this for the rest of my life,” the singer later told the crowd.
“I see a lot of admiring eyes on my sparkles. I know, it’s ridiculous,” Stefani joked with the audience.
During an interlude, Stefani spoke of her younger self, saying she envisioned herself with several kids and a “perfect family.”
“That’s something I dreamed of for a long time,” she said before performing “Simple Kind of Life.”
“I feel like bawling right now in a relief kind of way,” Stefani told PEOPLE following a successful kickoff.
Held at the Zappos Theater, the newest addition to the Strip is a visual masterpiece, with director Cory FitzGerald designing both the production and the lighting for Stefani’s 25-date show, running through March 2019. For tickets and more information, click here.
