Cover Loving: Gwen Stefani In Saint Laurent For Vogue

Gwen Stefani is certainly having a moment when it comes to magazine covers. This year I have already gushed about her divine Harper’s Bazaar September issue, her abs on the Marie Claire cover, and her digital print mash-up on the October issue of ELLE UK wearing Peter Pilotto and McQ by Alexander McQueen. Well it seems American Vogue wanted to end the year on a high with the release of the January issue with Gwen wearing an ensemble from Saint Laurent by Hedi Slimane’s spring/summer 2013 collection.

Captured by Annie Leibovitz this is a gorgeous cover. I love the pose on the piano, the ruffles, the sparkly jacket, the pop of red on her lips and even the oversized felt hat – this cover is so memorising that I can let them off for putting too many cover lines all over her.

What do you think of Gwen’s latest magazine cover?

Cover Loving: Gwen Stefani Shows Off Her Abs For Marie Claire US

I feel like i have stepped back in time ten years when my addiction for Gwen Stefani was at its peak as I am so pleased that the No Doubt singer is literally everywhere at the moment. I loved her Harper’s Bazaar cover, I completely adored the mix-matched styling of her ELLE UK cover, and it seems that the good times keep on rolling with this stunning cover from the American Marie Claire.

Each cover has represented a different side of Gwen, first we had glamour, then we had her quirky style, and now we have athletic Gwen – come on those are some amazing abs. I think a lot of women will be making this image their new gym inspiration snap on the fridge - I know I will be!!!

Shot by Peggy Sirota, the accompanying editorial sees Gwen wearing Jason Wu, Alice + Olivia, Belstaff, True Religion, Rag & Bone and Donna Karan looking simply stunning and in the interview she discusses her marriage, returning to the spotlight with a new No Doubt album, and wanting a third child.

See the rest of Gwen’s stunning pics and get a sneaky preview of her interview by heading on over to Marie Claire.

Cover Loving: Gwen Stefani For ELLE UK in McQ

ELLEOctGwen Cover Loving: Gwen Stefani For ELLE UK in McQ %tag

I am still working my way through my September issues and the October covers are already being unveiled. September for me was all about Gwen Stefani, I love her cover for Harper’s Bazaar US, and it seems that October is going to follow suit as this is one of the best ELLE UK covers I have seen in a while.

Shot by Matt Irwin, Gwen looks incredible in this very high-fashion full of personality cover, I love the contrast of mixing the digital prints of Peter Pilotto with the flirty florals of the McQ by Alexander McQueen floral skirt. If you are thinking that the McQ looks a little familiar it is because I fell in love with the dress version at the press previews and adored it on Victoria Justice at the Met Gala.

For me the whole look gives the cover a 3D effect and I am sure even though I love it this cover is going to be a little like Marmite - you will either love or hate it.

I am desperate for my subscriber cover to drop through the letterbox, I am hoping that it isn’t just this image with the cover lines stripped off, I want more Gwen!!!

ELLE UK’s October issue will hit newsstands on September 5 will you be buying? Also do you think the mix-matched styling is a little too much or like me do you think Gwen can pull anything off?

Yeah, my subscriber cover just arrived, and it is so what I was hoping it would be. This cover totally shows off why I love Gwen as she is fun, quirky, but still drop-dead sexy. This pose looks even better in the mix-match styling than the newsstand cover and I am so pleased. This is what the subscriber should be – different, unexpected but striking. I love, love, love it!!!

Which do you think is best newsstand or the subscriber version?

Cover Loving: Gwen Stefani for Harper’s Bazaar US

Finally, the Harper’s Bazaar US cover for September has been released. This is the one I have been waiting for and I am not disappointed Gwen Stefani is stunning and I am going to have to say it’s my favourite September cover.

As soon as I saw this girlie cover I actually swooned. I knew it would be amazing, I am a huge Gwen fan, and she looks gorgeous in this Jil Sander gown and amazing Alexis Mabille couture hat, but what I am super happy about is that they decided for girlie and glamorous rather than edgy and quirky.hbzseptembergwen5 Cover Loving: Gwen Stefani for Harpers Bazaar US %tag

To be honest the No Doubt singer really could pull off anything and I am so pleased that she wore one of my favourite Alexander McQueen gowns as well as this striking figure-hugging The Row leather dress. But the one picture that really made me squeal had to be seeing Gwen in this black Vera Wang bridal gown paired with elbow-length leather gloves and cute pink framed shades – how Barbie doll does she look – I would buy a Gwen Stefani Barbie in a heartbeat!!!

So what do you think of this Terry Richardson shot Harper’s Bazaar cover? Granted it is very text heavy, but this cover is what I was wanting to see from Victoria Beckham – it is very fashionable and eye-catching!

Check out the rest of Gwen’s amazing editorial on the Harper’s Bazaar’s website – there are some beauties of her wearing Versace, Oscar de la Renta and Diane von Furstenberg. I will be rushing to this issue come August 21 – will you?

Xmas 2011: The Last Ever Harajuku Lovers Fragrance

jingle g Xmas 2011: The Last Ever Harajuku Lovers Fragrance %tag

A couple of weeks back I went down to The Perfume Shop’s Christmas in July press day and tweeted about the last ever Harajuku Lovers fragrance, Jingle G. Well I have finally got my act together to blog about it *sorry for the delay peeps, especially @SamanthaA*.

I don’t know about you guys but I am super sad at the thought that this is the last ever fragrance from Gwen Stefani’s Harajuku Lovers collection. The festive mini, Jingle G, is a cutie with its notes of tangerine, orange blossom and vanilla, as well as doubling as a tree decoration. Love it , want it, need it!!

The scent hits stores September 21, priced £13 for a 10ml eau de toilette, which means it is a perfect stocking filler.

I will certainly be getting this beauty to sit alongside my other Harajuku Lovers, and I think I will have to start collecting the ones I missed starting with all these via The Perfume Shop!!

Who: Gwen Stefani

Where: At The Tree Of Life premiere held at the Cannes Film Festival

Wearing: A black sequinned Stella McCartney jumpsuit with a plunging v-neck

Verdict: Seeing Gwen like this I am begging Mattel to do a Barbie series on the No Doubt singer, this look is so 70s glam Barbie with her voluminous curly hair and Barbie pink lippy, and I adore it so much. I know for some this won’t be a great look – but I just love it.
