Rocking head to toe Hedi Slimane’s debut collection for Saint Laurent and her signature red lip, Gwen Stefani is giving these young girls a run for their money.
Eight years after making her debut in Vogue magazine, the 43-year-old singer graces the cover of the January 2013 issue of the Italian publication looking impeccable.
The No Doubt frontwoman opens up about everything from reuniting with her famous band to her marriage with Gavin Rossdale.
On No Doubt reuniting: “All four bandmates are married, with eight children between them. When they finally do tour again, sometime this year, it will be a “traveling Romper Room,” complete with toys, strollers, nannies, and tutors.”
On her career: “Who knew that ten years later, I’d be doing a No Doubt record, be married, have two kids, have three clothing lines? All at one time! It would be ridiculous to do that. And it is ridiculous. It’s impossible. So I think a lot of what I was going through on the rec ord was wanting to be who I’ve always been, but now I’m somebody different. I am a mother. And if you don’t do it right, there are serious consequences. That’s what this whole record was: trying to balance it, trying to be my creative self but also be the new me.”
On her sixteen-year relationship with Gavin Rossdale: “It’s pride You feel proud. There are just so many rewards that come with it. You have to work at it. But, actually, it’s fun to get to this point. Because you learn so much about somebody. It’s like these wars that go on and then you kind of get through it to the other side, and it’s like, Wow. And obviously, you get stronger. And then having kids takes the whole relationship to another place. It is the ultimate collaboration. Both of us have such strong opinions about how it should be, and it’s really fun to do it together.”
