Gwen Stefani, Gavin Rossdale flaunt their abs in Malibu: who looks better?


You know I’m not some huge fan of the Gwen Stefani-Gavin Rossdale pairing. I don’t actively dislike either of them, and I occasionally wonder about the state of their marriage, or perhaps glance through some photos of their kids, but in general, I’m “meh” on them. Gwen seems to have toned down her daily paparazzi-friendly jaunts, but I do wonder how photographers managed to take so many high-quality photos of Gwen and Gavin on the Malibu beach this weekend. Maybe Gwen and Gavin don’t care… but some of these photos look posed. Like, LeAnn Rimes-level posed.

Random thoughts about the photos… Gwen’s abdomen looks really great, especially given her age and the fact that she’s given birth twice. You have to spend time developing those ab muscles, and I’m jealous. Gwen’s abs look better than Gavin’s, although Gavin is no slouch either. In fact, I like him shirtless. He looks hot and tan.

Kingston is 5, Zuma is 3, by the way. Both of them get their hair professionally done, and they go with their mom to get their nails done too. It’s harmless, people! Although I do wonder – do you think Gwen really wishes she had at least one girl?

    They both look good. Even if one or two pics come across as posed, there is nothing of the level of “Leann Rimes posed”.

    They are so cute to me. I’d love to have abs like Gwen though!! Rock on Sister!!

    i will always like gavin rossdale maybe because he wrote “glycerine” or maybe because i saw bush years ago and they were great and he was really nice.
    and gwen is so cute. i like her. and those kids are so adorable.
    i think they’re really great parents and it’s so great to see kids behaving like kids and having fun.

    I’ve been a fan of Gwen since ‘Don’t Speak’ was released and I really love seeing photos of their family.

    However, I can’t help but be a little suspicious of the long-term effects of applying bleaching chemicals to the hair/scalp of very young children.

    I’m not all that convinced that makeup and hair product manufacturers have to step through the same vigorous testing/safety standards as food producers, so I’m weary of the possible (even if negligible) effects of unnatural chemicals.

    I remember when I was pregnant with my first son and was told that I should lay off the relaxers while carrying him because some of the chemicals in the products enter the bloodstream and cause pass through the placenta to the baby. I stopped relaxing my hair and never went back.

  5. Obvious says:

    @JustBe just because they have their hair done doesn’t necessarily mean it’s bleached. It could just be cut or something. I had hair the same color as her boys until I was 7, then it started getting darker.

    I think this is a cute family and Kingston is my face celebrity baby boy.

  6. fancyamazon says:

    She does have cute children, but I don’t think it can be healthy to put nail polish and hair bleach on children. I used to get the edible nail “polish” for my daughter when she was small, and that’s as far as that went until she was a fair bit older than Gwen’s children.

  7. K-MAC says:

    I love, love, love these two! Always have, always will and they have GORGEOUS children!!! They both have great abs!

  8. tmbg says:

    I need to know – how on earth does Gwen never have roots? I saw her natural color once in an old picture and it was brown! She has to be getting it touched up every week or so, don’t you think?

    As for the nail polish on the kids, many nail polish brands are free of the toxic chemicals they used to put in them (phthalates, formaldehyde, toluene, etc.,) but I still don’t think it’s good if they bite their nails and chew the stuff off.

    They both look awesome.
    I don’t think the shots were posed, I just don’t think they care.. I think they were doing their best to ignore the paps and go about their beach time..

  11. Scarlet Vixen says:

    One thing I’ve always admired about Gwen Stefani is that she’s admitted that it’s really hard work for her to keep such a great body. Years ago she said that because she’s Greek she’s prone to weight gain and has to work her ass off to stay trim. So refreshing to hear when compared to other HW bimbos to claim that they eat whatever they want, don’t exercise and never gain weight.

  12. ShanKat says:

    What happened to her new boobies?

    *edit: titty watch update (side view)…there they are, in the side-view.

  13. smh says:

    the answer is: neither >:D i realized i’ve been a successful hater of her since the mid nineties, when her terrible band first came out (ok so they had one-or two o.k. songs and one of them was a cover). i know people love her for being a sweetheart or something but it always looked so forced to me. even in her earliest videos it looked forced and silly. and the past few years she always looked like the lovechild of Big Bird and Launchpad McQuack who keeps putting that god awful red lipstick on. people are finally admitting that she’s horrid both looks and talentwise.

  14. Amanda G says:

    Love her. They look great and happy. Been a ND fan for 15 years…can’t wait for the new album!

  15. vicky says:

    No hips, no waist, and her shoulders are broader than her hips. I like a classic body for a woman: shoulders and hips same length, narrow waist, round butt, and breast that fits in a hand.

  16. Erinn says:

    Like other people have said, it didn’t say anything about bleaching the kids’ hair. Getting your hair done doesn’t mean getting your hair dyed. I was almost blonde at that age, not as light as they are, but my hair darkened up a lot once I hit elementary school.

    I’m sure Gwen would be making sure they used good quality polish on the kids too, and I doubt ingesting a few little chips of it here and there would do any harm.

  17. Leticia says:

    He doesn’t look very tall. Anyways, they are a beautiful family.

  18. velourazure says:

    i know it’s her signature and all, but i would feel so absolutely foolish wearing RED lipstick on the beach.

  19. Ari says:

    I like him and she is meh…I kinda wish Gavin had stayed with men lol

  20. your mama says:

    Yeah, I don’t know why, but I don’t find them that interesting either. I only clicked to see her abs (since she’s had 2 babies). She does look good… minus the bleached hair and red lipstick (so over that look).

  21. lola says:

    What’s not said is the numerous nannies off to the side that take the children when the *cough* photo shoot *cough* is over. These two always have played up their parenting in front of the cameras. It is no secret in Hollyweird that they only spend time with their children when the cameras are on. They tote their kids around like accessories. They are worse than the Affleck dimple parade.

    Bleaching your babies hair and doing their nails to look cool. Gimmie a break. Morons.

  22. mymy says:

    They have the lipo tummy look. So easy to spot. These two are trying way to hard to stay pretty. Vanity is a curse.
    And they dye the kids hair all the time. And dress them up in ridiculous adult clothing. I think they feel like they are accessories. Not a healthy thing . She needs to get a little sun and switch to a pink lipstick. Ever notice the extremes narcissistic woman go to in avoiding an ounce of color from the sun. Skin will be fine but ya need sun d.

  23. Sue says:

    Obvious@ Kingston hair was bleach for many years but Zuma is a natural bleach blond.

  24. tooey says:

    I love them both and their kids are just adorable. Now the more important question is: who makes those sunglasses Gwen is wearing?? The “shop” feature says Versace, but the glasses that links to look more squared. The ones in the picture look slightly rounded, mildly cat-eyed. Anyone have an idea?

  25. krista says:

    Lola – Good to see someone else has their eyes open and has clued in to this!!!!

  26. dj says:

    She looks fantastic all the time! I wish I could pull that off. I too would feel foolish with red lipstick at the beach but she wears it, it doesn’t wear her.

  27. greta says:

    Bright red lipstick at the beach??!!! Tacky, cheap and “oh look at me, Mr. Paparazzi”. Pathetic.

  28. firefly says:

    Just like the Brange, TOTALLY STAGED.

  29. Firecracker says:

    On anyone else, the red lipstick at the beach would look strange, but it works for her. Because it’s her signature look. Those kids are so cute!

  30. stella says:

    I wear deep red lipstick to the beach to protect my lips from the sun otherwise the lips break out in fever blisters (i.e. cold sores). Lighter shades don’t seem to work as well and neither does blistex. Just saying. Cute family.

  31. Adrien says:

    Gavin has a full-grown daughter who’s about to pose for Playboy. I would…both Gwen and Gavin.

  32. Adrien says:

    Who cares if this was staged? At least it’s not in some studio pictorial where you can cheat and photoshop away your curves.

  33. poodlemom says:

    He looks too good. I don’t think I would want to be with a buy who looks like him. I bet he expects Gwen to keep up with him in the fitness department. Poor Gwen! I bet she secretly wants a Kit Kat bar sometimes!

  34. wendy says:

    Gwen rules

  35. theaPie says:

    What is the so called evidence of lipo tummy? I don’t see any pock scars or distorted skin. Just because you can see the definition of the muscle over the ribs leading into the abdominal area, doesn’t mean a person has had lipo.

  36. mimi says:

    They’re such a cute couple.

  37. Miranda says:

    You can always tell when people are trying to hard. And enough with the “my kids are cool like we are” crap. Bleached hair and painted fingernails do not make someone cool.
