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.
