gwen-stefani-14We used to think it was impossible; Now you call me by my new last name… Memories seem like so long ago; Time always kills the pain…”  Gwen Stefani’s favorite color combination is certainly blue and white in her 2005 video, “Cool,” when reminiscing about young love.  Here, she takes a Vespa ride with her boyfriend while wearing a white capped-sleeved blouse and a cute pair of navy shorts adored with tiny bows on the side.  She wears the opposite combination of a white shorts and a navy top while singing in the present-day shot.  If you’re looking to get Gwen’s look, check out Style Amor‘s great post!

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
