Gwen Stefani Covers Marie Claire's October 2012 Issue

Gwen Stefani graces the cover Marie Claire's October 2012 issue wearing a sporty, belly baring ensemble featuring a green military-inspired jacket. Her accompanying editorial has her featured in ensembles from Jason Wu, Donna Karan and Alice + Olivia. Inside the singer talks about her upcoming ten year anniversary with husband, Gavin Rossdale, and her busy schedule while recording the album Push and Shove. 

Gwen on her hectic schedule while recoding "Push and Shove": "I would be up all night because my second baby [Zuma, now 4] didn't sleep, and he had a lot of ear infections. Then I'd wake up in the morning and do my workout, which I always felt I had to do, and then meetings for my three clothing lines, and then hang out with my kids, take them to preschool, da-da-da. And then at 4 o'clock, I'd be like, 'All right, I'm out of here, I'm going to go to the studio' and try to write a record. Sit on the couch [with my bandmates] and be like, 'Let's do this now because I'm missing time with the kids; I could be having dinner with them and putting them to bed.' It was really hard."

Gwen on having a third child: “I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn’t really work out. So… I feel good with what we’ve got. Everything works out how it should. You can’t plan anything, right? You can try.”

Gwen on what her 10 year anniversary with Gavin Rossdale represents: “A miracle… my biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far. Because it’s hard, everyone knows it’s hard. [Marriage] is something that I always wanted to do successfully. It was a dream of mine. I like the official-ness and the family-ness of it all, having the same name and making decisions together.”

Gwen Stefani Covers Harper's Bazaar September Issue

Gwen Stefani covers the September 2012 issue of Harper's Bazaar US wearing an oversized, bubble gum pink Alexis Mabille Couture hat and strapless gown by Jil Sander. Her accompanying editorial, photographed by Terry Richardson, features her in designs from Oscar de la Renta, The Row, Vera Wang, Versace, Alexander McQueen and more.

Inside the 42-year-old talks about everything from her style, to staying fit and motherhood. This issue will be the publication's largest ever — featuring 375 ad pages.

Gwen on her 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. I like to make my husband like me more and he likes it when I’m wearing makeup.”

Gwen on staying fit: “I hate talking about my body [all the time]; it’s ridiculous. There is no secret: You just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself! I like to wear clothes too much, so I try to keep focused.”

Gwen on motherhood: “It’s super fun being a mom, but it’s hard, too. Finding that balance between work and family is the hardest thing I’ve ever done—by far.”

Gwen on fame and gossip
: “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.”

For more with Gwen be sure to pick up the issue when it hits newsstands on August 21st.
