Words on Fashion

gwen-stefani-24We were kind of being like Sophia Loren, we were feeling that whole kind of 50’s vibe…” – Gwen Stefani on her and Sophie Muller’s style concept of the “Cool” music video


gwen-stefani-10And it’s such a miracle that you and me are still good friends; After all that we’ve been through; I know we’re cool…”  This “Pink Wednesday” is the only pink outfit Gwen Stefani wears in her 2005 music video “Cool.”  While No Doubt’s leading lady is a beautiful brunette in her flashback scenes, here she’s a blonde bombshell reminiscing about her old boyfriend, while hanging out in her massive villa in Lake Como.  She sports a leopard v-neck sweater, a high ponytail, a wide black belt and, what else, a faded salmon pink pencil skirt from Alexander McQueen’s Fall 2005 Ready to Wear Collection.  The song “Cool” is about Stefani’s previous relationship with fellow band-member, Tony Kanal, and his real-life girlfriend, Erin Lokitz, plays Gwen’s former lover’s new girlfriend in the video (pictured, below).  Talk about art imitating life!  But, we’re glad they’re still “cool.”  <3gwen-stefani-11
