Quirky, tough, cartoony, or all out fashionista: welcome to the style craziness that is Gwen Stefani
"It's interesting how she's overlapping with Madonna here. They both share a penchant for the 40s, like a Marlene Dietrich vibe. But you couldn't say she's ripping Madonna off," Bloch says. "Gwen never copies someone, she might overlap slightly, but the end result is that her style is always her own, because she puts her stamp on it somewhere." (A good style lesson here: copy celebrity looks, but add your own personal touch so you don't seem like a wannabe-clone.)
Note the wife beater and gloves: those tough-guy/bully touches pop up frequently. From this time on, her hair and makeup are always glamorous yet wearable, Bloch says. "Even if she was wearing a bra over a shirt, [her hair and makeup] made her relatable. If she had kept her blue hair, then it would be a different story."
