For her always imaginative hairstyles and stunning makeup looks, Gwen has been named one of Elle magazine’s Top Beauty Icons in their Women In Music feature.
Elle — Gwen Stefani
Stefaniâ€™s imaginative hairstyles and exquisite makeup are nearly as impressive as her musical chops. â€œWe just look at creating looks as a way to spend more time togetherâ€”weâ€™ve known each other for so long that itâ€™s a lot of fun,â€ says Danilo, Stefaniâ€™s coiffeur. Though he says the two of them like to keep things fresh, he admits Stefani is partial to a pompadour: â€œIâ€™ve done quite a few of them, but Iâ€™ve done them a million different ways. Weâ€™re always playing and trying out new ideas.â€ Stefani is also adventurous in her makeup choices but, as with her hairstyles, she plays favorites. Dramatically lined eyelids paired with either a red or nude lip is a standby: â€œI donâ€™t always do red but my husband [Gavin Rossdale] really likes it so Iâ€™ll probably have to keep wearing that color if I want to keep the marriage going,â€ she once joked.
