Gwen Stefani’s Best Onstage Style Moments Prove She Hasn’t Aged a Day

Gwen Stefani‘s style, both on stage and the street, has always been unlike any other pop star’s. Maybe because she never set out to be a pop star in the first place. She was just a SoCal girl studying art at college when she became the lead singer of her older brother’s ska band No Doubt. A few years later, Stefani and her bandmates were all over MTV and the radio with their massive hit “Don’t Speak.” Eventually a solo career came calling, and Stefani expanded her fanbase and sartorial inclinations. Yet, through it all, aside from a cutesy costume here and there, you can’t help but imagine wanting to rob Stefani’s tour wardrobe for your own actual day-to-day life. From luxe evening gowns to crop tops to the recurring theme of Anaheim ska scene-appropriate plaid bondage pants, she’s certainly found her niche. As Stefani kicks off “Just a Girl,” her career-spanning Las Vegas residency this weekend at the Zappos Theater, here’s a look back at some of her best on stage style moment. You might notice that over the past 20 years, she’s barely seemed to have aged a day.
