Gwen Stefani: Track Suit & Best Dressed

Gwen Stefani: Track Suit & Best Dressed

They may have always thought of themselves as extremely fashionable, but now Kanye West and Gwen Stefani have empirical proof that they’re style leaders — the pair have been named to Vanity Fair‘s 2006 International Best-Dressed List for the first time.  Social correspondent for Vanity Fair Amy Fine Collins said: "Gwen and Kanye are big-time style leaders… They both have such distinct, strong styles and are completely visible and influential… Gwen is fearless. She can go drop-dead glamorous and pull it off better than anyone else. She goes to extremes of glamour, partly by channeling old-time movie stars like Jean Harlow and by looking to artists for inspiration like Frida Kahlo, who she named her as one of her style influences. She is not afraid of looking like someone else, being glamorous in an elegant way and sexy and risqué without looking trashy. She understands fashion from the inside out because she’s a designer too. She’s also in touch with her masculine side and gets inspiration from her husband’s [Gavin Rossdale] closet. She experiments and she succeeds."

Bow down to the fashion powers of Gwen Stefani! Pictures include Gwen out and about in Studio City, Los Angeles yesterday morning wearing a stylish track suit. Check out more pictures in the gallery!

Congratulations to Gwen for topping Vanity Fair‘s 2006 International Best-Dressed List.  Do you think Gwen and Kanye deserve to be named international style leaders?  If not, who do you think should have won?

    omg first!! do i get a prize? :D

  • Lola

    I agree completely!!And let’s not forget Kate Moss was inducted into Vanity Fair’s Best Dressed Hall of Fame. Gwen and Kate are personal style icons of mine despite the fact that they can be very controversial. They take risks. Sometimes the result is less than fashionable but I applaud their fearlessness in the face of homogeneously-styled pop stars and starlets. They continue to do their own thing in a climate that stifles experimentation and individuality.

    Gwen really deserves this!!!Not only does she give us her gorgeous LAMB line and the fun and perky Harajuku Lovers, she herself is a constant inspiration to all fashionista’s!!Just remember how stunning she looked when she was pregnant with baby Kingston!!Congratulations Gwen!!

  • GrandmaGwen

    Um no she’s a miss here. A TRACKSUIT? WTF? and with sandals? She’s looking very grandma these days. Gwen grow up and be the sopisticated woman we all know you are. You’re pushing 40. This look is so 80′s. What’s next wearing leg warmers or shoulder pads?

  • EEV

    Now all the Gwen haters can keep their mouths shut! She is definitely an icon! GWEN ROCKS! Congratulations!

    STOP IT this bitch has looked mismatched from the middle of her pregnancy until now. SHE LOOKS a mess…now if she is happy with her sense of style Gwen keep it, but please do not pass her off as a style icon, jeez are we all looking at the same multicolor jacket on pale skin and red sunglasses on pale as crap skin on an outofshape body…how isanything in that photo warrant style icon status..creative yes style icon NOT

  • Just Jared fan

    Would I wear this? no… but I am not a pop Queen, when I frist saw the pic I thought of wacko jacko, heels and a track suit…. umm you go girl !!!! at least she can pull it off..

  • Lola

    To each his own wsdm but keep in mind Gwen was recognized for style not for her deeply tanned skinPersonally I’ll take fair skin any day over fried and damaged Pamela Anderson or oompa loompa spray tan junkies like the Hilton sisters

  • jen

    She is gorgeous. Madonna era is over. Whatever she wearing.

  • erica

    Gwen looks horrible and I’m shocked that anyone would give her any kind of award!!

  • sheesh

    Giving her an award for years of tacky dressing and disgusting looking hair just shows how pathetic the world of fashion has become. She has hideous taste and there is nothing classy or classic about her style. Just look at a close up of her head. The color alone is hideous, but they pin head style is just down right fugly.

  • Tealeaf

    WHATEVER…this chick only wears mismatch crap,…Heidi Klum dresses MUCH better in her pregnancy then Gwen, only mental patients would wear her crazy tastless clothes…NOBODY follows her style in real life.

  • fashion icon?

    Did anyone actually see the clothes she was wearing during her pregnancy? Horrible is the only word that comes to mind. That’s the first time I started noticing her "sense of fashion". And then remembered all the other things she use to wear before, AWFUL. I will never understand how she is called a fashion icon. I like Gwen as a person, overall she hasn’t done any harm to anyone in particular, but she should not be on this list.

  • movie fan

    She is very creative and I love her overall fashion. this might not be her best outfit, but her fashion and style choices are bold, rock and roll, and FUN!You guys remember fun, right?

  • Sarah

    Style icon? Sorry, I think she looks ridiculous. Her hair looks dirty and damaged. It would seem this woman has a tremendous amount of money. Why is she choosing to look like this?

  • Grossed Out

    Best dresse? In that tracksuit? With those shoes that cannot contain her nasty toes? And that sticky pompadour thing on her head? And those cheap-looking Walmart sunglasses? What are you all smoking? Taking risks doesn’t make you best-dressed, it just makes you clueless to what people around you are saying. And for those of you who think she wore her pregnancy well – WTF? She was a wreck. God-awful. Still is.

  • EEV

    First of all, to all those who say she is out of shape…SHE JUST HAD A BABY! Yeah, some celebrities come back a week later and are thin as a rail…but maybe Gwen wants to spend time with Kingston instead of a trainer. ALSO…she is not going to be unhealthy and not eat like most of those people do. SHE cares about her health because she has a newborn that relies on her! 2nd…tanned nasty skin will get you nothing but skin cancer. GO GWEN for not being a tan salon junkie. And seriously people…in case you haven’t noticed red lipstick is her thing! She IS an icon! Maybe if you guys pulled yourself out of the GAP and took a look at high fashion…you will see that she is very deserving of this title! Once again…ROCK ON GWEN!

  • god

    Finalpixx are going a great job AGAIN, the photos that get sent in are so good, nice job

  • Rachel

    well. if anything, her fashion is rather loud.

  • trim

    "She understands fashion from the inside out because she’s a designer too."yeah …riiiight ,like all the other senior granny walkers. She not fooling anyone. She used to be like Cindy Lauper bu now shes more senior cenetrI do like her paleness though- it not the sun city look . less wrinkles is always good

  • toeknee

    This woman is totally so fucking ugly, I do not see what her selling point is. Face like a dog trying to look as classy as she can. But no dice, sweetie, you are in the dog pound.

  • bridget arvidson

    i personally think her style has its good days and bad days..just like everyone else. I LOVED HER before she sold out to the pop industry, back when she had pink hair and was down with her raggae punk style. Now she sings this rap influenced mainstream crap. She is totally way hotter without the bottle peroxide due. I also love her new LAMB fashion line, though it really doesn’t really function in to the middle-lower class pocketbook. As Far As Style Icon, I would say yes…she is bold and daring enough to wear things that all the hollywood "socialites" purchase in bulk to "fit in" with the rest of hollywood. Go Gwen!! i would totally due you…and your husband…just please, lay off the bleach.

  • nXd fan :-)

    I love Gwen( been a ND fan since 94′..old skool for sure!), but you guys, we have to stay serious here: She’s not thaaat much of a style icon. Most of her outfits, when she performs, they seem to be OK, but then theres that ONE little thing that screws up the outfit, and Ive got SO MANY pictures to prove so.To be honest with you, I think you are more creative when you can come up with fashions working with very limited colors, ie goth-style, etc.Just because someone doesn’t conform to the general idea of fashion.. I don’t think they should automatically be crowned an ICON.I should have elaborated on that a little bit more, but I think you all understand where I’m coming from.BTW, just because someone disagrees with Gwen’s fashion, that DOESN’T make them a "Gwen Hater"..take it from someone who’s been on their boat since ’94. It just means they have sense. :-)

  • nXd fan

    oh yeah, this suit is ok, but that ONE THING that throws it off, is the footwear, sorry Gwen..even for alternative style, it’s a miss. But she’s come a LONG way, and Im proud of her, though for her accomplishments.

  • FS

    Whoah she IS actually wearing vampy heels with a track suit?! WTF anyone outside of New Jersey caught wearing a track suit in public is no longer a fashion icon. End of story.

    Didn’t Chanel have some rule about how you remove one piece of jewelry before you leave the house. Would someone please please tell Stefani that-except I think it’s true too for all those awful animal prints she piles on top of each other. Why is the media fueling her delusion of being a fashion “icon.”

    Does anyone remember Nick Tortelli’s mistress on Cheers? Except Stefani really needs a boob job if she’s going for that trashy gun moll look. And I hate implants.
