Gwen Stefani absolutely nailed her September cover of US Harper's Bazaar in what was by far the strongest September cover and now she's done it again on the November cover of ELLE UK.
The magazine has always supported British designers so it comes as no surprise that they opted to style Stefani in one of the tops from Peter Pilotto's Fall 2012 collection. My only wish is that they had opted for a full Pilotto look rather than teaming it with the McQ skirt, even though it is nice to see two British brands on the cover.
Will you pick the issue up when it hits newsstands on Wednesday September 5.
US Harper's Bazaar aren't the only ones releasing behind-the-scenes videos from their September issue cover shoot. Last week US Vogue released this video with Lady Gaga.
Granted, the video doesn't quite match up to Bazaar's sit down interview with Gwen Stefani. On the flip side, Vogue do offer up Marc Jacobs fluffy hats, elf shoes and Gaga doing her best Beyoncé hair-flicking impressions while her aptly titled new song 'Hair' plays. What more could you want?
By now you've all probably seen Gwen Stefani's amazing September cover of US Harper's Bazaar (it's my favourite so far) and if you liked that, you'll be pleased to know that it doesn't end there. Yesterday the magazine released a behind-the-scenes video from the cover shoot and before you dismiss it, it's not one of those typical ones with music playing on top.
In the video Laura Brown sat down and spoke to the singer about everything from how she came up with her signature look to when she discovered fashion and everything in between. Most interestingly, though, was the revelation that Stefani used to play with Terry Richardson's band in the early No Doubt days:
No Doubt used to play with [Terry Richardson's] band, Double Freak. It was pretty freaky. It was the L.A. scene, back in the day. I didn't even realize it until I walked in and he was like, "Double Freak!" And I was like, "Oh my god, really?"
As The Cut hilariously point out, Brown didn't push her for details considering how crazy some of the those stories could, and have, been so kept it on a fashion level and of course, spoke about Stefani's new record with No Doubt.
Regular readers will know just how strongly I feel about the need to have models on the covers of magazines as opposed to celebrities. GwenStefani is an exception to the rule.
Aside from the fact that she's uber talented, she's one of the few celebrities, along with Sarah Jessica Parker and Lady Gaga, whose careers have been so extrinsically linked to fashion that having her on the cover of a September issue makes sense. After all, she is a designer in her own right too.
Today her Terry Richardson-shot US Harper's Bazaar cover dropped and it is everything we could have hoped for. The head piece she rocks on the cover works brilliantly and in the accompanying shoot Stefani sports that beautiful pink Jil Sander dress from Raf Simons' last collection at the house, along with that multi-tiered Alexander McQueen dress too.
This year's event saw a one-night-only collaboration between with Marina Abramovic and Debbie Harry where guests including Kirsten Dunst and Natalie Portman were all made to wear white lab coats as they entered. Unlike the European Music Awards, there were lots of strong red carpet looks. Nicole Richie continued her flawless red carpet record in a lavender sheer floor length gown and Gwen Stefani and Dita von Teese LBDs were perfection.
It looks like one of our favourite celebrity designers won't be taking a bow this fashion week. According to reports, Gwen Stefani is swapping appearing at her upcoming L.A.M.B show in order to complete recording No Doubt's new album - their first in the last 10 years.
A spokesperson from the brand alluded to this in a statement to Page Six explaing that, “Given the extraordinary demands of working on three fashion lines while also finishing a new record, it is hard to say whether she will be able to attend the actual presentation in New York next month.”
Not many people could pull of this black sequined jumpsuit but last night, Gwen Stefanidid just that. The singer hit the red carpet of the screening of 'The Tree of Life' in the Stella McCartney creation teamed with a simple skinny belt and big curls.
Despite frenzied rumours of a split-up, Marc Jacobs and his partner Lorenzo Martone confirmed that they're still together by stepping out on the red carpet. The two posed for photographers at the ninth-annual Spring Fling party at Hiro this Saturday, where celebs in town for the Costume Institute Gala were out in full force.
It seems the Met Ball itself was another platform for proving relationships between celebrity couples. Sienna Miller and Jude Law were photographed together at the event, and Gwen Stefani posed with Gavin Rossdale, with whom Courtney Love had claimed to have an affair. Do we need more red carpet events to keep our couples together?
