Gwen Stefani for Marie Claire UK January 2013

Gwen Stefani graces the January 2013 cover of UK Marie Claire.

The rock star, businesswoman, fashion icon, wife and mum wears a selection of black and white looks throughout her editorial, which range from sexy to tomboy chic from her L.A.M.B. label

Talking to the mag, she opens up about her full-on schedule, how she’s learned to delegate, having more children and what her 10-year wedding anniversary represents to her.

You can read the full interview in Marie Claire, which is on newsstands now.

Here are some extracts:

On her relationship with Gavin Rossdale: “It’s better than it’s ever been, like we’re learning about each other all the time. Gavin’s an amazing dad and he works so hard – I can hear him writing songs through the wall, and it is at a much quicker pace than me. He balances me out. And he never stops liking me, which is awesome. It makes me feel happy that someone likes me as much as he does.”

On what their landmark 10-year wedding anniversary represents to her: ‘A miracle.’ After all she’s done, ‘my biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far. Because it’s hard, everyone knows it’s hard.’ Marriage, she continues, ‘is something that I always wanted to do successfully. It was a dream of mine. I like the official-ness and the family-ness of it all, having the same name and making decisions together.’

On having more children: ‘I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn’t work out. So I feel good with what we’ve got. Everything works out how it should. You can’t plan anything, right?’

    The cover (which I don’t like, too overt) gave me a real sense of deja vu. Other than that, I like the editorial.

    Ok, I’ll say it! THIS FROM ELLE US MAY 2011! That dress on the cover is Michael Kors Spring 2011 which Angelina Jolie also wore. Why recycle this shoot? I’m not saying it’s ugly but at least have some Spring 2013 pieces on. Maybe the photos were owned by the photographer and not the magazine. 🙁

      Holy crap, I found Marie Claire UK recycled this pic from her Elle US photos. But I agreed, it’s fabulous.
