ELLE has posted a great new article giving us more information on Gwen’s new shoot with L’Oreal yesterday afternoon in Cannes and when we will see it. The film and photo shoot lasted about twelve hours (!!!) and will debut in September. The article also mentions that No Doubt’s album will also be “hit shelves” in September as well… say what?! Gwen’s May cover of ELLE was a huge inspiration behind the new campaign — the nude lip and slick back hair — which looks STUNNING on her!
Gwen also mentions that she hasn’t done a lot of L.A.M.B. evening gowns but wanted to create one for the event so she could auction it off later.
ELLE — Gwen Stefaniâ€˜s in Cannes for a few reasonsâ€”sun, food, family funâ€”but the pop iconâ€™s first order of business was shooting her third and latest commercial for Lâ€™Oreal. Yesterday, she spent twelve hours filming on a yacht, in a villa, and against an eternity pool (she swears she only got tired around hour 10).
The campaign wonâ€™t debut until September (when No Doubtâ€™s new album hits shelves), but she did offer one great hint after lunch this afternoon when I mentioned ELLEâ€™s May cover.
Though no one does a red lip quite like Gwen, the nude she wore on the cover was a big hit in our officeâ€”as well as Lâ€™Orealâ€™s. She said, â€œThatâ€™s what Lâ€™Oreal was really inspired by! We wanted that look for the commercial so we did a version of thatâ€”with the hair. I loved that hair; I was always very much into Bewitched and a Samantha look.â€
As for tonightâ€™s look, when she heads to Hotel du Cap for the annual AmFar gala, sheâ€™ll be wearing a dress of her own design. â€œI havenâ€™t made very many couture gownsâ€”itâ€™s a big process and a lot of work and itâ€™s a lot of pressure because there are so many beautiful gowns out there that I could wear, but I really wanted to make something with L.A.M.B. because I really wanted to auction it off,â€ Stefani said.
