People — So how does Gwen Stefani balance her ultra-successful rock star career with her design lines? Well, turns out, itâ€™s all part of her plan for life after music. The InStyle cover girl explains, 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.â€ And its something sheâ€™s done her entire life, saying â€œI made so many clothes growing up, and I used to do my own costumesâ€¦all I would do was just daydream about what I was going to make.â€ While Gwen certainly rocks some hot looks on stage, itâ€™s her off-duty wardrobe thatâ€™s made her a style icon to millions around the world. So what will happen to her stock of Galliano and Westwood when sheâ€™s no longer wearing them? Hint: If she doesnâ€™t have a daughter, itâ€™ll pay off big to be one of her sonsâ€™ girlfriends later in life. â€œI donâ€™t know. Iâ€™m not focusing on it right now, but itâ€™s not up to me anyway, you know? These things are miracles, so weâ€™ll see,â€ she says. â€œOtherwise, the clothes are probably going to go to some girlfriend of Kingstonâ€™s!â€ To read more from Gwen Stefani, pick up InStyleâ€™s April issue on stands now, or check out InStyle.com.
Hollywood Life — My favorite glam rock goddess, Gwen Stefani, graces the April cover of InStyle, where she opens up on being a singer, designer, and mom! She also addresses her obsession with her signature red lips! â€œI wear it all the time. I wear pink, I wear gloss, I wear everything, but my husband prefers when I wear red, so I want him to like me still! I remember the first time I ever wore dark lipstick. I was maybe 18, and I can remember the moment I put it onâ€“in my Honda Prelude that I bought for, like, $3,000â€“and looking in the mirror going, â€˜Good, I like that.â€™ Never again did I stop wearing it.â€ Gwen, just like us, you have your go-to glam product that makes you instantly feel sexy!
The starlet also dished on her role as designer! â€œâ€I 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 have to be creative to be happy.â€ Judging by her success in stores, weâ€™re sure Gwen wonâ€™t have any problem when she retires from the stage â€” although I hope it doesnâ€™t happen any time soon!
