Vogue magazine has shared a new short video interview with Gwen where she discusses her past where she was “anti-fashion”. Gwen loved the punk look but didn’t know where it came from.
She tells the story of how the band was getting ready to shoot the video for “Spiderwebs” and No Doubt was on their own stylistically wise. Gwen continues by saying how she had some really awesome punker pants but needed a top to go with it for the video. While shopping in Melrose, Gwen came across a bunch of corset tops that she fell in love with. She saved up her pennies and eventually bought her first designer piece, a Vivienne Westwood $800 floral corset. Gwen said at the time she had no idea who Westwood was and feels so lucky to have had eventually met her and is still one of her biggest fashion icons. Westwood even made a dress just for Gwen and feels like everything she tries on feels like it’s just for her. “I love that clash of feminine and masculine. It’s everything that I love.”
