Beauty Icon of The Month: Gwen Stefani Chameleon of Style

Ever since No Doubt was introduced to the world, I have always been slightly obsessed with Gwen Stefani. And it seems the rest of the world is too since she's on the March cover of V Magazine (how fierce does she look in V?? love it!) and graces the cover of Flare in April.

Love her music (although Sweet Escape was not my favourite album) and love her unique sounding voice, but its her flawless style and her ability to transform whether it be retro 1950's glamour, avant-garde, bohemian, or rasta/hip-hop inspired. Her platinum hair, flawless porcelain skin, black liquid liner and bold red lips is absolutely Gwen. It's her signature look but I also love seeing her softer more natural side sans liner and red lips.

And how she manages to look amazing while being a mommy with another one on the way, wife, singer-songwriter, business woman with her own clothing line, perfume, shoes, and accessories makes me look lazy (we all know she probably has a village of people helping her!). I love the picture of their stylish family playing in the park, Gwen looking pregnant and gorgeous in her tribal-inspired dress. Whatever Gwen is doing she has definitely made her mark as a beauty icon by taking fashion/beauty risks and staying true to who she is (she ain't no holla back girl!).
