Gwen Stefani Covers 'Harper's Bazaar' September 2012
Here is what the 42-year-old No Doubt frontwoman had to share with the mag, which is releasing its largest issue ever with 375 ad pages.
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.”
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.”
On motherhood: “It’s superfun 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.”
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.”
FYI: Gwen is wearing a Jil Sander gown, and hat by Alexis Mabille Couture on the cover. Inside, she showcases looks by Alexander McQueen, Oscar de la Renta, the Row, Versace, and more.
