She's a singer, a designer (she's just released her first fashion line), and she's soon to be a mom, but what Gwen Stefani is best know for is her style. From 40s style glamour to punk chic, Gwen's fashion sense is all her own. Here's why we think Gwen's style is hot…
I'm just a girl
Even when she's in track pants or skater style outfits, there's always something just a little bit girly about Gwen's style. Although her style changes, her trademark platinum-blonde hair and bright red lipstick remain the same: it's a look which comes straight from Hollywood icons like Marilyn Monroe and Bette Davis, and which has been much imitated by modern stars like Madonna and Christina Aguilera.
Only Gwen Stefani would pair Marilyn's looks with skater punk style, though, and we have to love her for that.
Equally at home in track pants and tight dresses, when Gwen decided to put on the style, she really goes for it. Her look is an eclectic one, drawn from many different eras: her polka dot dresses and skyscraper heels come right out of the 1950s, but Gwen likes 80s fashions too, throwing bright colors together apparently at random.
You don't need to be a rich girl to dress like Gwen, though: the star is a big fan of vintage clothing, and she likes her style unique. A fashion leader rather than a follower, she's never dull, and always original, with a look that seems thrown together, but still stylish.
Baggy pants with lots of zips, tiny cropped tops and multicoloured hair were the trademarks of Gwen's style when she started out with no doubt, and although her look has moved on, the most important thing about fashion for Gwen is that it be fun. This is one girl who clearly enjoys experimenting with different looks, and doesn't much care if she makes the odd mistake.
