Gwen Stefani for Harper’s Bazaar Magazine
Gwennie thinks pink, and looks fabulous doing it.
Gwen Stefani is featured in the September 2012 issue of Harper’s Bazaar magazine photographed by Terry Richardson and styled by Lori Goldstein.
On her style: “I’ve always been a girl who loves to dress up. I already put my makeup on twice today: I put it on to take my kid to school, and then I went home, washed my face, and put it on again to have lunch with you. I like to make my husband like me more and he likes it when I’m wearing makeup.”
On staying fit: “I hate talking about my body [all the time]; it’s ridiculous. There is no secret: You just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself! I like to wear clothes too much, so I try to keep focused.”
On motherhood: “It’s superfun being a mom, but it’s hard too. Finding that balance between work and family is the hardest thing I’ve ever done—by far.”
On fame and gossip: “That someone would say something untrue or bad about me doesn’t bother me. It’s like water off a duck’s back. None of that stuff matters. There’s something in me, being this passive person, that those kinds of things don’t upset me. I know they can say anything; they can just make something up. But what are you going to do? It’s not part of my reality, so it’s okay.”

Just yesterday we said that pink’s a lot harder to wear than most people realize. To that we’ll add that pink is, in our observation, the most abused color in the style world; constantly worn in shades that don’t flatter the wearer. Gwen’s modeling a range of pinks here and because she’s Gwen Stefani, Master’s-level dress-wearer, she can make almost all of them work. Although if we had to pick the one that’s working the least, it’d be that Diane von Furstenberg jumpsuit. That’s looking a little Barbie on her.
And the blacks are there because she’s Gwen Stefani. It’s as close to her signature color as black can be.
