Gwen Stefani For Harper’s Bazaar September 2012

Gwen Stefani rocks an Alexis Mabille Couture floral headpiece and a Jil Sander gown on the cover of US Harper’s Bazaar September issue, which was shot by Terry Richardson.

The mag gives Gwen a mini makeover by swapping her signature red lip colour for a hot-pink hue.

In her editorial, which sees her wearing only pink and black looks, my favourite is the frothy pink Alexander McQueen gown, which has to have a red carpet moment. The singer also wears The Row, DVF, Vera Wang and Versace.

Gwen opened up about her personal life, being a working mum, her style and the secret to her envied six-pack abs.

On her style: “I’ve always been a girl who loves to dress up … I already put my makeup on twice today: I put it on to take my kid to school, and then I went home, washed my face, and put it on again to have lunch with you. I like to make my husband like me more, and he likes it when I’m wearing makeup.”

On staying fit: “I hate talking about my body [all the time]; it’s ridiculous. There is no secret: you just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself! But it’s more for my brain than it is for my body. I like to wear clothes too much, so I try to keep focused.”

On motherhood: “It’s superfun being a mom, but it’s hard too. Finding that balance between work and family is the hardest thing I’ve ever done – by far.”

On fame and gossip: “That someone would say something untrue or bad about me doesn’t bother me. It’s like water off a duck’s back. None of that stuff matters. There’s something in me, being this passive person, that those kinds of things don’t upset me. I know they can say anything; they can just make something up. But what are you going to do? It’s not part of my reality, so it’s okay.”

Rosamund Pike In Christopher Kane – The Stone Roses Adidas Secret Gig

It’s not often we see Rosamund Pike sporting such a laidback look, but it was event appropriate for the Stone Roses Adidas secret gig held at Adidas Underground in London on Monday night.

Sporting a simple white tee and black pants, the British actress added an eye-catching Christopher Kane animal print biker jacket to her look.

Opting for ‘just-got-out-of-the-shower’ hair, Rosamund completed the look with black leather booties and a gold bracelet.

Who Wore L’Wren Scott Better…Penelope Cruz or Ellen Barkin?

Two L’Wren Scott devotees were spotted wearing the same emerald-green dress from the designer’s Fall 2012 collection mere months apart.

Penelope Cruz was first to wear this green dress with gold embellishments when she made a guest appearance on the ‘Late Night with Jimmy Fallon’ show in New York City back in June.

The actress paired the look with a classic pair of nude platform heels and left her voluminous locks down.

Her feminine figure fits the classic wrap dress to a tee and she looks stunning, as per usual.

However, does she beat L’Wren Scott’s biggest fan, Ellen Barkin?

Ellen Barkin wore the same dress on Saturday for ‘Comedy Central Roast of Roseanne Barr’ at the Hollywood Palladium in LA. She styled the long-sleeved dress with an interesting choice of purple croc pumps, a pink lip colour and a slicked back French roll ’do for a very elegant red-carpet look.

While both stars do the designer justice in this L’Wren Scott design, I’m partial to go with Penelope on this one.

She wears a near-identical look to the runway version, and keeps the bow at the waistline.

Dree Hemingway In Marc Jacobs – ‘Starlet’ Locarno Film Festival Photocall

Earlier this afternoon, Dree Hemingway was also in Switzerland attending the 65th Locarno Film Festival to promote her latest movie, ‘Starlet’.

The model/actress joins a growing list of celebrities who have fallen in love with the Marc Jacobs Resort 2013 collection.

At this rate the whole collection would’ve hit the red carpet by September.

Dressed in red, white and blue degrade floral shirt-dress with a pleated skirt; she styled her look with white plimsolls.

Opting for a simple beauty-regime she pinned her ombre hair behind her ears, completing her look with no makeup.

This quirky look works for Dree, but I prefer the scoop-neck version presented in the look book.
