Gwen Stefani is a pretty cool lady, she’s wife to British rocker (and very attractive) Gavin Rossdale, has 2 children, became famous with No Doubt and then put out two very popular solo albums.  She writes a lot of her own music and her lyrics are often extremely personal.  She’s also played Jean Harlow in the movie, “The Aviator”, has a successful clothing line, L.A.M.B, perfumes and is a spokesperson for L’Oreal.  Really, who better to sell lipstick than a woman who is famous for wearing it?  And, yes, she is known for a bold red lip and platinum hair.  She is a bit of a slave to fashion and has admitted that she keeps herself thin just so that she can wear designer clothing.  I like that she loves to play with fashion – her style was very different for her solo albums that it is when she works with No Doubt.  I also like that she loves to dress up and play with hair and makeup, working in some retro style. Thank you to my sister, who suggested that I do this post because it was a reminder of how much I love Gwen and her style!

This is a bit of a switch up with a softer hairstyle, even with lots of volume, heavy liner and a nude lip.  It’s very Bardot and I love it!

Knotted braided updo

Curls and a fab accessory

Gwen’s wedding gown, designed by John Galliano for Christian Dior.  I love the fuschia bottom.

Pretty and romantic in black and white Chanel with Gavin Rossdale.

Music video for Gwen’s “Early Winter” because it’s a beautiful video, from the hair and makeup, to the couture gown at the end.  It’s one of my favourites though the song is quite sad.

Pink hair trend from the late 90s when she was broken up with Rossdale.

Pink hair in No Doubt video “Simple Kind of Life”.  I love the pink hair, not just the pink hair in general but the crazy curled updo, and the wedding dress designed by John Galliano which is amazing.

These are some gorgeous, very stylish photos.  I am loving the hair and makeup!

An interesting take on the french twist, coiled into a bit of a pompadour on top.
