If there was ever a gal who deserved to be on more covers than anyone else, it’s Gwen Stefani. The rockstar and mom to Kingston and Zuma Rossdale was photographed by Terry Richardson for the September 2012 cover of Harper’s Bazaar, the biggest issue of the year in magazineland.
Inside, Stefani wore everything from Alexander McQueen to Vera Wang and back to The Row, all the while looking insane (in a good way).
On keeping that figure in fabulous threads: “I hate talking about my body [all the time]; it’s ridiculous,” Stefani said. ”There is no secret: You just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself.” She hits the gym, but for more than just a lithe figure. ”It’s more for my brain than it is for my body..I like to wear clothes too much, so I try to keep focused.”
On negative stuff written about her:”That someone would say something untrue or bad about me doesn’t bother me. It’s like water off a duck’s back. None of that stuff matters. There’s something in me, being this passive person, that those kinds of things don’t upset me. I know they can say anything; they can just make something up. But what are you going to do? It’s not part of my reality, so it’s okay.”
On her personal style: “I’ve always been a girl who loves to dress up. I already put my makeup on twice today: I put it on to take my kid to school, and then I went home, washed my face, and put it on again to have lunch with you.” Stefani even wears it at home. “I like to make my husband like me more,” she said with a laugh, “and he likes it when I’m wearing makeup.”
Pick up the September issue on August 21st.
