“We recreated the looks how I wish I would have really looked then if I had people helping me, like a stylist or something… Things were just a little bit shorter, and the hair was just a little better, you know? Those kinds of things.”
At the end of last year, Gwen Stefani announced her calamitous return to the musical fore with her latest single, “Let Me Reintroduce Myself”, with a knockout performance on The Voice. In true Stefani fashion a fun and fantastical video followed, taking us on a playful visual retrospective of her most iconic looks — the varsity vest and fishnet pairing days of No Doubt’s “Just A Girl”, the classic 50s polka-dot masterpiece Stefani dons in the video for “Don’t Speak”, and the oh-so-00s full-fringe glamour of “The Sweet Escape”.
Covering our Spring 2021 issue, Stefani reflects on her creative process for the track and writing her upcoming album. Tracing her career from her debut record Love. Angel. Music. Baby. to her recent collaborations with fiancé Blake Shelton, she sets out her hopes for the year ahead and all the success to come.
