Fashion Wrap Up — Gwen was born on October 3, 1969 in Anaheim California, and her mother named her after a stewardess in the 1968 novel “Airport.” When we first heard about the blonde bombshell she was the lead singer of the band No Doubt. Their Album Tragic Kingdom would sell 16 million copies and produce hits such as “Just A Girl”, “Spiderwebs” and “Donâ€™t Speak”. The Band’s fourth album “Return of Saturn” set the band on a steady decline in popularity, and in 2004 Stefani recorded her first solo album. “Hollaback Girl,” the third single released from the album, became the first U.S. digital download to sell one million copies. In 2003 she debuted her clothing line L.A.M.B. and further expanded her fashion talents with the 2005 collection called Harajuku Lovers, drawing inspiration from Japanese Culture and fashion. She married British Rocker Gavin Rossdale in 2002, and since then the couple has had two sons Kingston and Zuma. The superstar was also named the 37th Hot 100 artist of the decade. Stefani, a natural brunette has changed her looks through the years opting for her platinum blonde hair for a majority of the time. In 2004 she played the original blonde bombshell Jean Harlow in the movie “The Aviator” with Leonardo DiCaprio. In the 90’s her look consisted of light face powder, bright red lipstick and arched eyebrows and rockabilly hair, and she also has dyed her hair blue and pink. In 2006, Stefani modified her image, inspired by that of Michelle Pfeiffer’s character in the 1983 film Scarface. The reinvented image included a symbol consisting of two back-to-back G’s, which appears on a diamond-encrusted key she wears on a necklace and which became a motif in the promotion of The Sweet Escape.
