Gwen mentioned this in her behind the scenes interview with InStyle, but it’s nice to see it in article form for the fans who couldn’t watch the video.
Moldova — Gwen Stefani is brilliant blue in Stella McCartney on the April 2010 cover of InStyle.
The 40-year-old No Doubt frontman shared why she got into designing a fashion line. Gwen said, â€œI wanted so badly to have a backup plan for when Iâ€™m not performing anymore. Letâ€™s be realistic: itâ€™s not going to be like this forever. So I wanted to continue having something creative to do. I donâ€™t have a strong sense of self-worth unless Iâ€™m doing something. I was a different person before I started to write. When I realized I could be a songwriter and that people would listenâ€”that was when I started feeling good in my life.â€
At the cover shoot, Gwen also shared, â€œOne of my favorite things to do is NOT go shopping. Like today, I asked my stylist Andrea Lieberman [and her girls to] to pick some stuff out for me so I can shop at the photo shoot. They do the edits and then I edit that. I feel really guilty about it. Itâ€™s very luxurious. Itâ€™s one of the perks of the job. [But] itâ€™s not a job, is it? Itâ€™s my life. (laughs)â€
