Gwen Stefani looks beyond pretty in Barbie-doll pink on the September cover of Harper’s Bazaar. The 42-year-old No Doubt singer stunned in a ginormous Alexis Mabille Couture flower hat would make even the British royals jealous.
Here are some highlights from her interview.
On mixing career and children:
“It’s, like, the real deal, dude. 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 dealing with tabloids:
“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.”
On her obsession with makeup:
“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.”
