Gwen Stefani Harper's Bazaar September 2012

Gwen Stefani covers Harper’s Bazaar September 2012 looking tickled pink in a Jil Sander gown paired with an Alexis Mabille Couture hat. The fashion parade doesn’t stop with the fabulous cover. Within the September issue, Stefani is photographed wearing Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta, The Row, Versace and many more. But let’s just take a moment to focus on that McQueen moment above…

Shot by Terry Richardson, Gwen Stefani will definitely be driving sales for the largest issue of Harper’s Bazaar in its 145 years on planet earth. A big fat issue, featuring 375 pages of ads, will hit newsstands on August 21st. For those who can’t wait, here are some choice quotes from Stefani’s interview with the magazine:

On her style: “I’ve always been a girl who loves to dress up,” says Gwen.
“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.”
She even wears it at home because
“I like to make my husband like me more,” she says, laughing, “and he likes it when I’m wearing makeup.”

On staying fit:
“I hate talking about my body [all the time]; it’s ridiculous,” she says, referring to the number of times someone has asked how to get her six-pack abs.
“There is no secret: You just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself!”
Jumping around onstage for a few hours for thousands of screaming fans
is great cardio, and she says she hits the gym when her hectic
mother-of-two schedule allows.
“But it’s more for my brain than it is for my body.” Not that it’s all about mental health. On how she stays sample-size:
“I like to wear clothes too much, so I try to keep focused.”

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.” This attitude applies to everything from best-dressed lists to rumors
that her marriage is falling apart. “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.”
