Gwen Stefani In Carven – 2011 MOCA Gala

The 2011 MOCA Gala on Saturday night was Gwen Stefani’s second red carpet look this weekend.

On this occasion Gwen wore a Carven Spring 2011 dress.

Once again this look has a lot going on.

Her black taffeta dress has an asymmetrical neckline, a sash across the shoulder, a ruched bustier, and a draped tulip skirt.

On paper it should totally overwhelm the wearer, but Gwen’s presence and attitude helps her pull off this look.

The singer/designer kept her top knot from her previous look, and added a black clutch and purple peep-toes.

Gwen Stefani In L.A.M.B. – Harajuku Mini for Target Launch

Gwen Stefani was at the Jim Henson studios in LA on Saturday to launch her Harajuku Mini for Target collection.

The singer/designer did so wearing a look from her L.A.M.B. Spring 2012 collection.

Her zig-zag and floral print look consisted of a jacket and skinny cropped pants.

The two-tone theme continued down to her crisscross L.A.M.B. wedges.

With this much print, the addition of a gold statement necklace would be overkill on most people, but Gwen pulls it off.

My problem with this look is the expose bra which is kinda tacky for a kids event.

A high top knot and signature bold lips provided the finishing touches.

Who Wore Giorgio Armani Better? Gwen Stefani or Angela Bassett

This year Gwen Stefani attended her first Cannes Film Festival as a L’Oreal girl.

She grace the red carpet at the premiere for ‘This Must Be The Place’ wearing a Giorgio Armani Spring 2011 gown.

Her chic white silk gown with a black asymmetrical strap and an opening just above the waist was teamed with tri-colour Christian Louboutin peep-toes and a red clutch.

Angela Bassett wore the same dress to the Multicultural Benefit Gala to celebrate ‘An Evening of Many Cultures’ at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City last month.

She finished off her look with a sleek bob, a black clutch and black peep-toes.

This is a hard one for me because I didn’t like Gwen’s heavy eye makeup, but I preferred her accessories and I loved the red lips, so she eventually wins for me.

Who Wore Stella McCartney Better? Iman or Gwen Stefani

Supermodel Iman took to the red carpet at the Met Gala earlier this month wearing a gold and bronze sequined Stella McCartney jumpsuit.

The jumpsuit features a deep V-neck, padded shoulders, long sleeves and loose fitting pants.

Iman cinched in the waist with a decorative black and gold belt and accessorized with a mini clutch, platform heels and some stunning costume jewelry.

I like the details of this outfit but sadly I think the impact is lost in the fact that her hair, skin tone and the colour of the jumpsuit are all blending into one another. I think if the jumpsuit had been a different colour this would’ve been more impactful.

Gwen Stefani attended “The Tree of Life” 2011 Cannes Film Festival Premiere wearing the black version which she also opted to cinch in at the waist.

The rest of her accessories included platform heels, a gold clutch and matching bracelet.

I really love Gwen’s hair and makeup. I love the deep side part and wavy curls and I think her makeup is youthful and fun. Her punchy pink pout is pretty and perfectly complements the rest of her look so she wins for me.

Gwen Stefani In Armani Privé – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “This Must Be The Place” Premiere

Gwen Stefani graced the red carpet again during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival for the “This Must Be The Place” Premiere this evening.

She opted to wear a very chic Armani Privé white silk gown with a black asymmetrical strap and an opening just above the waist.

I love the hair and I also love that her trademark red lippie is back, but the eye make-up is killing me.

It almost prevents me from liking this look because it’s too heavy.

Tri-colour Louboutin’s and a red clutch completed this look.

Gwen Stefani In L.A.M.B. – 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala

This is my favourite look so far at the 2011 amfAR’s Cinema Against AIDS Gala during the 2011 Cannes Film Festival this evening.

Gwen Stefani really disappointed me with her first Cannes look, but this self-designed custom L.A.M.B. gown more than makes up for it.

Her black halter mermaid gown is simply breath-taking.

What I admire the most is the way she’s working the gown with a capital W.

I’m guessing she’s no longer channeling her trademark red lippie, as on this occasion she opted for a gold colour to match her waistband.

A Roger Vivier ‘Miss Viv Punk’ clutch completed her look.

Gwen Stefani In Stella McCartney – 2011 Cannes Film Festival “The Tree Of Life” Premiere

As the newest L’Oreal girl on the block, I was most excited about seeing Gwen Stefani at the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

This evening the singer/designer arrived on the red carpet with her husband Gavin Rossdale, to attend “The Tree Of Life” Premiere.

Sadly my excitement turned to a tinge of disappointment at the overwhelming feeling of deja vu.

That’s because supermodel Iman has already worn this sequined same Stella McCartney jumpsuit in gold to the 2011 Met Gala just two weeks ago to the day, plus she also sported a similar mass of voluminous curly locks.

I don’t hate the look, but I wish I hadn’t seen it before and I also wish she’d opted for a gown.

I love that she opted for a punchy pink pout, instead of her trademark red lippie.

Gwen Stefani In Elle US May 2011

Gwen Stefani graces the cover of Elle US May 2011 issue, which focuses on women in music.

Dusan Reljin shot the beautiful singer and designer wearing Givenchy and Michael Kors.

Gwen shares that she takes much pride in her appearance, but she would never place herself in the same category as Lady Gaga or Katy Perry, as she thinks they are much sexier than her.

I totally disagree. Gwen is waaaay hotter than those two put together.

The Women in Music issue also features multiple female singers stars including Jennifer Hudson, Adele, Jennifer Lopez, Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Beyonce and Willow Smith.

Here are some extracts from Gwen’s interview:

On writing hits: “I do! Why wouldn’t you want that many people listening to the songs that you wrote? There’s no way to go back after you have had it. So the intentions of even the solo records were always about trying to write those guilty-pleasure albums that just get in your head and you can’t get out. I’m not cool, I’m not into the B-sides. Prince, who is one of my idols, gave me some advice when I worked with him: “Have you ever just tried writing a hit? Like, don’t just try writing a song, try and write a hit song.” I remember him saying that and me thinking, Yeah, you’re right. Why would you write anything else?”Read More…
