Gwen Stefani showed up in London today wearing this jumpsuit, and while I think she looks totally fierce, it’s such a utilitarian garment that I couldn’t help but do a side-by-side comparison with this beaming stock photo model who is pretending to be a mechanic. So, whose look do you prefer?

I’m like a magpie as far as beauty products go — I’m drawn instinctively to anything bright, sparkly, bizarre, or beautiful — but when it comes to what I put on my own face, I’m an unlikely makeup classicist, and I most definitely stay inside the lines. At the S/S 2013 Prada show in Milan, models (like Jessica Stam, left) walking the runway sported fluorescent red lips that erred ever-so-slightly outside the natural barrier, resulting in an overall effect that’s more cartoonish than chic (wax lips, anybody? I ate a fair few in my day. Spoiler: they are disgusting). General consensus seems to be that this exaggerated lip look is best left to ’90s pop stars — like, say, Gwen Stefani, who showed off a similar shape at the iHeartRadio Music Festival. Frankly, I wouldn’t be caught dead in it. Would you?
“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.”
–Gwen Stefani makes the surprising admission to Harper’s Bazaar that her husband Gavin Rossdale actually prefers it when she wears makeup. Pretty much every guy I’ve ever known has belonged to the “less is more” camp when it comes to makeup, but I’d love to hear from readers on this one: do you wear makeup for the benefit of your significant other? Do they like it when you wear makeup? I definitely like feeling put together for my boyfriend, which, for me, includes a bit of makeup, but I shudder at the idea that some concealer and a swipe of mascara would make my partner “like me more.” [Harper's Bazaar]
If anyone in the world could pull off a skintight leopard-print suit, it’s Gwen Stefani. That being said, I would have loved to see this suit with a sexy black tank top under the jacket instead of the matching shirt. As much as I love the silhouette, it’s a little too reminiscent of a “sexy leopard” pre-packaged Halloween costume. What do you think? Is Gwen’s outfit totally fierce or does it fall flat?

Gwen Stefani’s cute three-year-old son Zuma Nesta Rock Rossdale (that’s his full name and I love it) has grown to be such a little towhead, mama’s bottle of bleach not necessary! Gwen took Zuma to the beach in Santa Monica and the little nugget went nuts playing in the water. I miss being a kid and being allowed to play in those park fountains. I tried to go to the one across from my apartment the other day and got dirty looks from all the parents. Sad face.
If we’re to believe the news being leaked out of Coachella Festival headquarters, this year’s double weekend Coachella Festival, held in Indio, California on April 13-15 and April 20-22, is going to be like taking a fantastical ride in the wayback machine to the mid-’90s. Supposedly the fest’s headliners are No Doubt, Foo Fighters and Radiohead. And also appearing: Fiona Apple (!), Chris Cornell, Underworld (remember “Born Slippy”?) and Nada Surf. Oh sure, there are some current bands playing too — like Best Coast and Wild Flag — but the headliners are all a zillion years old.
What is that? It’s the sound of Zuma Rossdale, Gwen Stefani‘s adorable 3-year-old son, trying to oust Shiloh Jolie-Pitt from her current spot as Kate’s Favorite Celebrity Kid. For his birthday, Zuma dressed up in a Captain America costume and went with mom to get a manicure and pedicure. He choose red and blue nails, of course. This photo—and the memory of Shiloh’s military garb—makes me long for the days before kindergarten, when gender distinctions just weren’t a big deal and you could wear a costume out just because. [E!

Oh God, I am so embarrassed. You’ve caught me drooling. I’ve been starring at this picture of Gwen Stefani at the amfAR gala at Cannes and didn’t even realize I was salivating. She looks so chic — and it’s her own design. Yep, this black halter-neck, mermaid-train gown, with gold belt detail, is from her L.A.M.B. line. Someone needs to be dressing actresses for the Oscars next year! Dang, remember when she used to wear nothing but cut-off white tank tops?
This wasn’t even the first show-stopping number Gwen wore this week in France — after the jump, two more dazzling looks. Keep reading »
“I’m very vain. That would be my middle name. Of course I am, you know what I mean? I love the visual.”
– Gwen Stafani in the May issue of Elle. I don’t know exactly what she means. Is she saying she loves the visual of herself? Or that she is obsessed with the way things look? I don’t think that necessarily makes you vain. It’s lovely that Gwen is willing to cop to her vanity, but I’ve always thought she comes off as down to Earth — even though she always looks impeccable. I strive to master that skill. I guess I’m vain too. [Elle] Keep reading »
