The singer/designer knocks it out of the park with her amazing casual look!
Spotted at the US Open this weekend looking nothing but fantastic and amazing: singer/designer Gwen Stefani! OMG, so to quote Rachel Zoe, “I DIE” for Gwen anyway, but can we just talk about how incredibly cool she looks? Who else could rock casual chic like this?!? Let’s break the look down, shall we?
First of all, let’s talk about the casual high school-approved straight hair with her bangs twisted away from her face into a I-don’t-have-time-for-it braid. This could look tragic on almost anyone else but her. Then we have her trademark beauty look translated for a more casual feel: perfectly arched eyebrows, black cateye makeup and her signature red lip looking like sheer perfection. Finally, it looks like she threw on hubby Gavin Rossdale’s track jacket and a fabulous black bag (possibly from her line, L.A.M.B.) and there you have it: impossibly chic casual. THIS is the epitome of personal style: the ability to make even the most basic throw-it-on items come together in a manner where people take notice of how good you look rather than the items you’re wearing.
Even though Gwen’s style is all her own (and heavily imitated for years,) there is one thing you can always steal from the style icon: her signature red lip. There’s almost no such thing as a universally-flattering red but you can get the look with M.A.C Cosmetics Lipstick (a Gwen favorite) in Ruby Woo or for a more slick red look try their Tinted Lipglass in Russian Red. Those favoring a lip gloss with plumping action should look to Fusion BeautyLipFusion Infatuation in Screen Siren and anyone seeking serious screen siren glamour should look to Revlon Lipstick in Cherries in the Snow, Marilyn Monroe’s favorite red lipstick.
So, if you decide to try and rock this look for yourself (or just want to switch up your own look,) just know that the essential ingredient to ultimate personal style is confidence. If you know you look amazing, everyone else will be inclined to agree. So put on a little lipstick with your next casual look and give this look a shot. Take it from Gwen, you never know who’s looking!
