Gwen Stefani in Los Angeles

Posted on June 26, 2014

We haven’t checked in on Miss Gwen in the longest time. She was doing the sidewalk tour thing to perfection long before Miss Reese got snotty with a cop. Girl’s got serious street style game.

Although this is just an errands outfit with some outrageous footwear. Then again, that’s kind of her thing.

Style-wise, you can’t get much more L.A. than that, unless you’re wearing a sundress with boots.

Those shoes are, shall we say, not to our tastes, but they’re the only thing that makes this look interesting. And since L.A.M.B. is her baby, it just makes good poledancing sense to sport them for the paps. In other words, this is a total “LOOK AT MY SHOES – THEY’RE ON SALE AT SAK’S” outfit. Mama’s working.

    • Dorothy & Michael n/a

      The Carol Channing glasses look cute with that outfit.

      • boweryboy

        Raspberries!

      • DebbieLovesShoes

        *gasp* Now I love the glasses even MORE!

    • Kent Roby

      She manages to look fashion-forward and sexy in an oversized plaid shirt.

      • @Biting Panda

        Well, the size of the woman wearing that shirt helps. Men’s plaid and yoga pants on a curvy gal is hella frumpy. Cute, but…

        • Sophie

          Oh yes. I recently bought a loose top which is supposed to be relaxed and chic, and it just looks like a pyjama top on me. I’m still undecided whether to give it to my sister or just keep it to sleep in.

          • Janet B

            There is only so much ease I can wear, before it’s looking like I’m (unsuccessfully) trying to hide something.

            • smayper

              Right there with you. My sister, also built like me (wide shoulders and short) came out of a dressing room in one of those loose linen dresses (in a beige color), and started doing the “bring out your dead!” routine from Monty Python. Ever since then, we call certain clothing items “bring out yer dead” fashion. I WISH they looked chic on me, because they are really comfortable and look awesome on others, but…

            • KinoEye

              “Bring out yer dead” fashion. LOVE.

            • Sophie

              My sister is built nothing like me, so she can pull off the clothes I only wish I could wear. I’m doing a semester abroad, and it’s really hot here, so these loose clothes not only look awesome (on others), but they are a must if I want to walk through town while not dripping with sweat.
              I love your sister’s idea of that kind of fashion.

            • AthenaJ

              Ugh, thanks to PCOS most of my extra weight is in my stomach/ab area… so I have to be verrrry careful about flowy dresses and tops, lest I get ‘Oh, when are you due??’ squeals from strangers and the occasional coworker. Seriously, this has happened more times than I can count. Sometimes I really hate people.

            • DebbieLovesShoes

              Oh, hon, I’m sorry. That same thing happened to me and I remember how horrified and humiliated I felt when asked “How far along are you?” whilst the person was staring at my abdomen. I still cringe at the thought.

          • Glam Dixie

            Loose tops like that just look awful on me because I have a large bust and the shirt then hangs straight down from the girls like a circus tent. Not a good look, adds about 20 imaginary pounds too.

            • http://dorothydamage.wordpress.com/ Dorothy Damage

              I hear you. I have the problem on both sides (literally) because I very much have a large black girl bottom. The current trend for floaty chic makes me look even shorter, dumpy and pregnant, which is so not hot right now. If only I could afford the sleeker Solange outfits.

            • fursa_saida

              Right? Bye bye, waist.

          • Ragnarockette

            I feel your pain.

            I’ve got some tiggolbitties, and putting anything billowy over them just creates this shelf-curtain which makes me look like someone has thrown a sheet over a globe. Tres sexy.

            • whaddami

              Color me in the same boat. Can we start a countdown on the long boxy top look already? I want to know when I can go shopping again and actually not hate everything in the store….

        • Kent Roby

          Her confidence and alabaster skin help, too.

          • Kitten Mittons

            That’s what sells it for me. Cool and confident, all damn day.

            • DebbieLovesShoes

              Yup. Wish I could borrow some of that confidence! I wonder what she hears inside her head to give her that swagger?

          • Rhonda Shore

            and her signature lipstick!

    • @Biting Panda

      I need that job.

    • RussellH88

      I love Gwen. She’s the best advertisement she has for her clothing line and style.

    • http://brianfortedesigns.com/ BForte

      I love that those shoes are called sneakers.

    • schadenfreudelicious

      What amazes me is that she can keep that platinum blonde looking quite healthy, and she never seems to have roots showing, kudos to her colorist, the upkeep is no doubt a full time job…

      • Janet B

        It rarely looks bad. Maybe she only ventures out a few days each month?

      • barbarienne

        I’m starting to wonder if it’s her real hair color.

        • kfizz

          Nope. She’s got dark brown hair naturally. Photos of her from the 90s show dark roots all the time, and she’s said in interviews that we won’t see em on her ever again.

      • Madam Von Sassypants

        I have always wondered about that. Girl has rocked the platinum hair for at least 20 years.

        • kimmeister

          She did go through a hot pink phase during “Return of Saturn” album poledance.

          • Danielle

            And blue around that same time!

      • Bexxx

        Pun intended?

        • schadenfreudelicious

          totally unintentional, but i did catch it after i hit share ;)

    • FibonacciSequins

      Works for me. I’d buy a pair of those shoes if they weren’t quite so high.

    • Kitten Mittons

      It’s amazing how she can makes things work that on others would make me cringe. Those shoes for one. And that one little off-center knot on her head for another. If Miley or someone tried to do that I would be gnashing my teeth and screaming.

      • Gatto Nero

        On Gwen it doesn’t look contrived, somehow. It just looks like Gwen.

    • Thomas

      What’s up with the mini bun/knot in her hair?

      • Jessica Freeman

        I see a half assed call back to her No Doubt days when she did her entire head like that.

        • Thomas

          I agree. It just looks silly with only the one though.

    • Janet B

      Those shoes are horrible. Or maybe just not my thing.

      • portlandmermaid

        No, they’re clompy and horrible.

    • Sophie

      Not really to my taste, be it the shoes or the hair. The shirt looks good on her, though.

    • RescueMe23

      Stank. Boot.

    • Anglow

      I love that she dares to wear red lipstick, even casually, in this day of the neutral.

      • Gatto Nero

        She’s stuck to her guns. And it works for her.

    • boweryboy

      I can’t get over how ugly those shoes are. Just ugly.

    • Jessica Freeman

      She’s like the Dita von Teese of the punk world.

    • MilaXX

      I wouldn’t be caught dead in those , but she’s making them work with this outfit

    • Yoshio

      I have irrational love for her. So, to me she is perfect…

    • Anna

      44, Bitches.
      I love how her style has evolved. Her style has grown up with her (unlike say, Mariah Carey who still hilariously thinks she can pull off her wardrobe from the Honey video) but she’s stayed true to herself and it’s just become more progressively higher-end throughout her success and career. She can do no wrong to me.

      • Mismarker

        44 and mother to three young boys. I love her. She is my spirit animal.

        • Madam Von Sassypants

          I ALSO say she’s my spirit animal!! Along with Neko Case and Caitlin Moran.

    • MoHub

      I love the way she’s artfully left the bottom buttons on the shirt open so the breeze catches the fabric and shows her skin. The shoes, however, suck.

      • kimmeister

        Specifically, to show off the abs, despite having popped out a kid three seconds ago.

    • Mismarker

      Lumberjack chic. And I love it.

    • Glam Dixie

      I usually like what she wears, it but this is fug.

    • bessann28

      Those shoes look uncomfortable as hell.

    • bessann28

      And isn’t it way too hot to be wearing that outfit?

      • ballerinawithagun

        June gloom in CA right now. Cool and cloudy in the morning.

    • TinyDynamo

      What do I need to sacrifice (& to what god/goddess) to look that amazing in such a casual outfit?!? Damn girl, that is impressive.

    • ballerinawithagun

      Love my wedge sneakers! I’m 5’2″ so I’ve always worn heels and mine are so comfortable I’ve bought 3 pair. Inexpensive, not L.A.M.B.! I had them on making a quick connection in San Francisco the other day and my husband couldn’t believe how fast I could walk in them. I’ll be wearing them allover Europe in a couple of weeks. They are very popular over there.

    • Anna

      Only Gwen could get away with that little wonky-half-bun-knot on her head and still look good.

    • Danielle

      I had no idea L.A.M.B. was still in production.

      • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

        I know Harajuku Lovers has been seriously scaled back. Their purses were a vice of mine (though I usually picked them up at Marshall’s.) Surprisingly hard-wearing, but who would pay north of $100 for a nylon tote covered in cartoon characters?

    • Athenrein

      I used to wear oversized men’s plaid flannel shirts half-unbuttoned at the bottom when I was a teenager living in the middle of nowhere with no source of style guidance. Does this mean I can start doing that again? Because it was really comfy.
      Edit: regular sneakers for me, though. I am content with being short.

      • TwiddlyStun

        I have been awaiting the return of grunge style for several reasons. Comfort is #1, but also hoping to reduce the number of super-low cut pants, super-high cut shorts, side-boob, and under-boob I have to view. At least for the “on the street” posts.

        • MoHub

          I’m over 60, and I don’t want or need pants with “waistbands” down to the bikini line—or anywhere below my own waist. However, I’m pretty small—a 4—and have no desire to put myself in elasticized old-lady pull-on pants either. What’s a practical person to do?

          • TwiddlyStun

            MoHub, Remember how fantastic female backsides could look in the high-waisted pants of the 70’s? The looking fantastic part is long gone for me, but I would be so much more comfortable in those than in jeans with a 2″ zipper. Ms. Gwen would certainly rock them.

          • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

            Eddie Bauer pants and shorts, all the way.

        • Athenrein

          I don’t understand the high-waisted, super-short shorts at all. Or under-boob. Fashion is weird.

    • Tee

      Girl just invented a new style, “chola chic”. Bienvenidos to East L.A. Miss Gwen.

      • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

        She’s been toying with it for awhile, check out the video for Luxurious. It always irritates me since she’s a rich white girl from a wealthy ‘burb who now has a London townhouse. Who’s she kidding?

        • Tee

          She’s like a modern, female David Bowie. She started as a Ska chick and has morphed into many styles from Yama girl to Chola. And they’re all super cute.

    • ChelseaNH

      I don’t see why wedge sneakers need to exist.

      • TwiddlyStun

        Truth – Why oh why would you want to run errands – or do anything else in the real world – on your tippee toes?

    • OffToSeeHim

      Those are the stupidest shoes I’ve ever seen.

    • YourBaloneyDontGotNoSecondName

      Those shoes are really fierce and edgy and street. Great job advertising, mama!

    • Jacqueline Wessel

      I love how her hair never shows dark roots. She’s on top of that.

    • marlie

      I don’t like anything about what she’s wearing or her hair, BUT she manages to work this look anyway. She looks cute in a way only SHE could.

      • http://armchairauthor.wordpress.com/ LesYeuxHiboux

        You took the words right out of my mouth and made them coherent in the process.

    • Deedles

      Is this another “Gwen Stefani leaves her acupuncture clinic” photo? Those have been wildly popular as of late. After years of shoes like these, one must wonder if they have anything to do with needing acupuncture in the first place. Fierce, indeed, but they just hurt my ankles, hips and lower back to look at them!

    • msdamselfly

      Those are some pretentious shoes and sunglasses which spoil an otherwise very cute look

    • http://smalltownbigwardrobe.com/ Catherine

      I’m sweating just looking at this outfit, considering the 200% humidity outside right now, but that shirt is seriously cute.

    • http://www.readbarbara.com/ ReadBarbara

      She looks totally cute, even in those weird-ass shoes. Makes me want to start a new blog , “How Do Ridiculous Do I Look in This Star’s Clothes?”

    • Shawn EH

      “L.A.M.B., where we wrap couture in plaid and hightops! FTW!”

    • Kim Elmore

      Is she rolling in a mini-van?! <3 her

    • http://www.redriverhistorian.com texashistorian

      Those shoes look comfy, and then I realize she’s walking on her toes in them. Now they look like they’re part of the “casual torture” line.

    • nannypoo

      I would love to know what she uses on her hair to keep it from snapping right off.

    • kimmeister

      I’m having a bad reaction the sunglasses and the red lips being so close to each other. It’s reminding me of the guy in Raiders of the Lost Ark when his face melted off.

    • Mothra

      A plaid, flannel shirt in LA is style?

    • shopgirl716

      I really hate those shoes. The entire LAMB line is not to my taste. The shirt reminds me of the early 90’s grunge days.

    • sweetlilvoice

      It must be cold in LA….It’s 90 where I am. She looks rather 90s which I guess is appropriate.

    • DuBey2

      Probably the only time I’d agree with the deployment of a plaid ?flannel shirt on a woman.
      On another note *SIGH* I was SO hoping that super high Wedge High Tops would NOT become a thing :(

    • maretha2

      I think everything about this look — from the mini topknot in her hair all the way down to her wedge sneakers — is an F.G.O.: For Gwen Only. She looks great. Other mortals shouldn’t dare.

    • frannyprof

      I hate wedge sneakers so much.

    • Sara Brams-Miller

      I have to say, if I were to design shoes for a living, I would totally wear the shit out of them all the time. Even if the shoes were fugly. Although, let’s be honest. I would NEVER design fugly shoes.

    • sagecreek

      See, this is what I think I look like when I dash out in leggings and an oversized man’s flannel shirt.

      I am wrong, but this is what I THINK I look like.

    • Man Dala

      She’s rocking that post-pregnancy body hella good.

    • unbornfawn

      I love those sunglasses. I just can’t with those shoes.

    • demidaemon

      Those shoes look one step away from flying off and whacking someone in the head.

    • Synnamin

      Those are, quite possibly, the ugliest shoes I’ve ever seen

    • ktr33

      I was expecting to scroll down to some 2-toned black & white creepers.

    • SophieCollier

      She has the feet of a Transformer.

    • jabes

      The fifth picture cracks me up. It looks like she’s tried to stuff her feet into the top of a pair of little kids’ shoes — look how small the sole of the shoe is! God forbid the cops ever use footprints like those to catch a killer — they’ll be arresting 9 year olds!

    • antonialee

      Is it winter in L.A.?

    • kategs

      plaids that don’t match make my eyes twitch.

    • Alloy Jane

      I hate those shoes like they insulted my cats.

    • http://frankbettecenter.org/ sleah_in_norcal

      those shoes look like chinese bound feet. and i love me some lamb.
