Gwen Stefani dress stolen
 
 The red vinyl minidress worn by the No Doubt singer on the cover of the band's breakthrough album, 'Tragic Kingdom,' was taken from a Fullerton exhibit.
 
 The dress worn by No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani on the cover of the band's "Tragic Kingdom‚?Ě album was stolen from an exhibit at the Fullerton Museum Center, officials said today.
 
 A statement from Interscope Records, Stefani's label, said the dress was taken between 2:30 and 3:30 p.m. Tuesday while on display in the museum's exhibit on the history of Orange County rock 'n' roll. It was displayed behind a 7-1/2-foot-high plexiglass wall, museum director Joe Felz said.
 
 Fullerton police were focusing on two possible female suspects, Felz said.
 
 The garment is a sleeveless, red vinyl minidress that Stefani wore with matching red roller skates for the 1995 album, which was the Anaheim group's commercial breakthrough, selling more than 10 million copies in the United States. Stefani, an Orange County native, attended Cal State Fullerton before No Doubt became a top-selling band.

 The dress could be worth as much as $5,000, said Jim Washburn, curator of the rock ‚??n‚?? roll exhibit.
 
 "Given tsunamis and things, I don‚??t think this rises to the level of tragic, but it‚??s sad that some people‚??s level of selfishness carries them to this," Washburn said.
 
 Interscope's statement said, "Our foremost priority in this matter is the safe return of the dress as it means a lot to the band ‚?? it can be returned no questions asked.‚?Ě
 
 Anyone with information was urged to call Sgt. Jason Schoen at the Fullerton Police Department, (714) 738-5336, or call (714) 738-6715 and ask for the watch commander.
 
 Stefani's label is asking that the dress be dropped off at the museum, 301 N. Pomona Ave., or Rebel Waltz Inc., 31652 Second Ave., Laguna Beach.
