Once again, here’s a post I wrote for Exeter Fashion Society:
It’s official: No Doubt are back on the scene. You can listen to their new single, ‘Settle Down’, here, and its video is set to premiere on E! tonight. Here at EFS (between frothing at the mouth over £1000 jackets, not eating carbs and just being generally really edgy) we’ve been listening to the track on repeat all day and can hardly contain our excitement.
To mark the occasion of Gwen Stefani’s reunion with the band that brought us ‘Don’t Speak’ and ‘Hey Baby’, I thought I’d provide you with a brief celebration of their front-woman’s oh so 90s style (that is before she accessorized with Harajuku girls and Akon).
THE GLITTER BINDI
It would be difficult to traverse East London’s hipster watering hole, Shoreditch, without seeing a fair amount of glitter bindis, artfully drawn eyebrows and pin-up girl fringes. It’s so wrong (and possibly offensive to the Hindu community) but SO right, and Gwen was working it way back when like only she can.
I hate to imagine the sort of fitness regime that warrants those rock hard abs. They’re solid enough to break rocks on, and if you’ve got them, why not flaunt them? That’s exactly what Gwen Stefani did, and we’ll even forgive her for questionable striped bras and white cargo trousers, because we just love her that much.
Stefani has always committed to her many changes in style, and hair colour is just another accessory to play around with. Although she’s most famous for platinum blonde locks and bright red lips, these blue and pink looks are winners for me. Move over Katy Perry, you’re trying too hard. This is how it’s done.
That’s all folks!
