Gwen Stefani sat down to talk her effortless top knot hairstyle, her clothes and lipstick in this behind-the-scenes footage from her Harper’s Bazaar cover shoot. Stefani covers the September issue, looking pretty in pink. She broke down her style hallmarks and even revealed a secret association with famed photographer Terry Richardson.

So about Terry. He was in a band called Devil Freak that used to play with No Doubt in the L.A. scene back in the day. The singer and mom-of-two made him promise to listen to the new album since it’s upbeat. The Harper’s shoot was Stefani’s first-ever with Richardson! What goes around…

Stefani also talked about her top knot or the “fun bun,” as girls who copy her coif call it, but when asked about how often does she ‘”thinks pink,” since her shoot and spread was so pink-centric, she said,
“I haven’t thought pink in a long time…in like 10 years…I am feeling pink again; it has come back
into my life.”

The diva and L.A.M.B fashion designer revealed she used to customize clothes she bought from thrift store. There were lots of glue guns and Velcro being used!

It’s odd that Stefani refers to some of her outfits and dresses as “that thing,” such as the fluffy pink gown she wears in the Harper’s Bazaar spread or the black Stella McCartney jumpsuit she once wore to a red carpet event. She is quite nonchalant, which is strange for someone so fashionable and so on-the-pulse when it comes to clothing.

Her staples are white tanks, which are easy to dispose of. She also has a storage space but she’s never been there. She just knows that the clothes “go” there. Stefani has a very standoffish attittude about her wardrobe, doesn’t she?

Lastly, she copped to being in “L’Oreal mode” with her lipsticks. Well, she is a spokesmodel for the brand, so she best be!

And there you have it. Style secrets with the lovely and fabulous Gwen Stefani.
