Gwen Stefani’s footless tights & mechanic’s onesie: cute styles or not so much?

Since you guys seemed to enjoy those Gwen Stefani photos in the links yesterday, here are even more. Gwen was out last night, seeing a show with a friend in London – those are the pics where she’s wearing the metallic dress and footless tights. Then she was out in London again today doing something… promotion for No Doubt’s new album, I’m guessing. Those are the photos of Gwen in the dark blue onesie. Let’s talk about the outfits!

I like the metallic dress – I think it’s really cute and rocker-chick-chic, and it suits Gwen. I’m not so sure about the footless tights that Gwen is trying to make “happen”. When I was a kid, I did gymnastics, and we wore those footless tights a lot, so that’s what I think of when I see them – not some “trendy” style choice, but dated gymwear. Maybe that’s my issue. As for the blue onesie… AWFUL. I will never understand why any woman is like, “Yeah, give me the onesie. I wanna look like a high-fashion mechanic!” Because that’s what she looks like. A mechanic. Nothing wrong with that, but it’s not “high fashion”.

Gwen also has a new interview with The Guardian – there’s not a lot of new information, it’s mostly about No Doubt and how they’re all parents now and how difficult it is to make time and all of that. You can read the piece here. Gwen also talks about hosting a fundraiser for Pres. Obama and Michelle Obama at her LA home: “My kids had a complete meltdown when Michelle Obama arrived. The exact opposite of what you want to happen when the First Lady turns up at your house.”

    oh god, i saw the thumbnail picture and thought it was Heidi (as in Heidi and Spencer) that is never ever agood look.

  2. TheOriginalKitten says:

    Is she getting lip injections too? I’m seeing some lumps there.

    I never really listened to her music but always loved her for some reason.
    I know her style is ridiculously dated but it’s that ska look. I dunno…it’s her signature style-why should she change?

    If she dressed up like Gaga or Minaj then everyone would see her as a sad Madonna type still trying to be relevant and hip like the kids. Or maybe a lot of people already see her that way?
    Meh. I like her. Sue me ;)

    • marie says:

      I’ve always liked her to Kitten, she’s never tried to be anybody but herself. I however, do like her music-it’s fun..

      I really wish she would stop messing with her face though..

    • UNF Joan Jett! says:

      I kinda still love her.

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      I like her-she’s ruining her face though. It is totally frozen and lumpy and waxy looking. I’m sure she would have been gorgeous on her own, you know aging normally. She’s still a relatively young woman.
      Sigh.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Agree with all of you guys. She always took good care of her skin too. No need to order up The ‘Toxed Alien Special at such a young age.

    • Irishae says:

      Seeing Gwen in her No Doubt mode is comforting for some reason, probably because I grew up in the 90s during their peak. She always looks more laid-back and healthier when she’s apart of the band, even though the look is a bit dated as you say.

      It’s not quite the level of Gaga & Minaj INC., but I fucking loathe her solo Harajuku girls schtick, I hope she doesn’t revert once this No Doubt promotion is done. To me that screams “hip like the kids” when you’re 42 wearing clothes designed for a 12-year-old.

  3. Rhea says:

    She looks…different…in the metallic dress…maybe it’s the lipstick? I really hope it’s not because she did any work to her face. I don’t want her to change like a plastic.
    I like her make up better in the onesie outfit and she looks kick-ass with that outfit. High fashion or not. ;)

  4. Green_Eyes says:

    No wonder Flavor Flav mistook Miley for Gwen! She looks more like Gwen than Gwen does in the top photos. What did she do to her face??? The last ones she looks more like she used to, but defintely can tell work done she looks different. Sad, she is really a beauty & she’s going to ruin her face like all those before her. Don’t all these celebrities see how awful their peers look? If so are they that gullible to believe their Dr or Surgeon is better than the rest? Unbelievable!

  5. Belle Epoch says:

    Agree softer hair and red lipstick is a much better look. What did she do to her face? Heidi Montag Special?

  6. mek821 says:

    I actually love the jumpsuit. If I had her figure I would totally wear that.

  7. jc126 says:

    Geez, she’s looking Madonna-esque in some of those pics.

  8. MizzVJJ says:

    She’s seeping into Madge territory..

  9. yolo says:

    For Gwen, I kinda like the one-sy (how the hell do you spell that again) more than the dress, I think it’s more fitting for her style. The dress, along with the make-up seems to try hard…or something.. I do love me some No Doubt!! My inner 20 year old was rockin out to Settle Down pretty hard yesterday in the car…probably would have embarrassed the hell out of the 10 year old for sure. She does need to ease up on all the tox tho… =(

    • The Original Tiffany says:

      No way! Rock out. In fact, I was listening to Spiderwebs and I’m just a girl yesterday with my kids.

      We are one of those have a concert in the car types of families:) We are mostly musicians in there anyway. My kids are 12 and 14 and even my son says he likes No Doubt. He’d still prefer some Priest. Haha.

      • yolo says:

        !!Priest!? Wow, that’s impressive!! =) I’ve noticed that his tolerance for my musical outbursts depends on his mood/day/hunger. I’m just happy that he hates Justin Beiber and love Bob Marley and the Beatles.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        Ha, he likes No Doubt because they are Reggae inspired. They love The Beatles and then my daughter likes some singer songwriter stuff and my little Dude verges off into Muse and Metal.

        I love that they detest all current pop music. Yay, go rock! My daughter already sings with her dad’s band when he can get away to do local gigs.

        We have very diverse music trips between each city and on cross country drives. Supertramp followed by Adele followed by Priest. Told you we were weird.

  10. HotPockets says:

    I love the tights, but it looks like she is using fillers, along with botox.

    I have nothing against that either and like someone else said on here, it doesn’t always photograph well, but it makes me wish that we were all secure enough about aging naturally.

  11. tmbg says:

    I think she looks pretty great. She might have gotten a little filler in her lips which is usually not a good look, but the red lipstick masks it. The rest of her face is very youthful.

    I don’t get all of the hate towards Botox and filler. Botox can be done so it looks extremely natural. Gwen might have gotten a little too much, but it will loosen up in a month or so. As for fillers, they can work magic. They made my upturned nose, which was something I was always insecure about, a lot straighter. They’re a nice option for someone who refuses to go under the knife unnecessarily.

    • Happymom says:

      The “hate” is because a lot of times it doesn’t look remotely natural, and these people look like weird wax caricatures. I’m almost 46-I miss how I looked at 30 too-but this stuff doesn’t make you look younger. It (usually) makes you look strange.

      • tmbg says:

        Then they’re just not seeing the right doctor. I live in a city not known for much, and I found a great doctor who gave me enough Botox to smooth the forehead but yet I could still lift my brow some and make expressions. In a way it was a blessing because I have a tendency to furrow my brow and people think it makes me look grumpy. Lately though I stick to eyebrow-skimming bangs because they’re cheaper.

        As for filler, I had it done in my nose and a tiny bit in my cheeks (my face was flattening out some) and once the swelling went down, went to see my family. The only person who knew I had anything done was my mom, and I asked her a few days later if anyone noticed anything and she said no, it looked natural.

        My SIL had a little too and she just looked like a refreshed version of herself.

        Not everyone comes out looking like something from Madame Tussaud’s.

      • tmbg says:

        PS – and the mark of a good plastic surgeon is one who tells you that no one having Botox should end up looking like Marcia Cross or Kidman!

  12. Reece says:

    Back off my girl b*tches! Aint nothin’ wrong with her! She just has that makeup pancaked on like she has for the past 30 yrs. lol
    I like both outfits. She’s straight. She can pull off the mechanic look. I’m too hippy and booby to wear that.

    • deehunny says:

      ITA. She looks pulled but good in both outfits. I actually like the mechanic look, but then again I don’t hate the onesie

  13. I.want.shoes says:

    I consider onesies to be that crap that Cameron Diaz was really into over the summer (the short shorts onesies). This is really a jumpsuit. And I don’t think it looks bad. She makes it more feminine by paring it with the high heeled boots.

  14. lisa2 says:

    I don’t think that every female celebrity uses botox.. That being said I think people don’t take into account that makeup really can change the face and the size of features. Making noses smaller or wider. A different arch in the eyebrow. Eye liner or lipstick.

    I see many women being accused of botox or plastic surgery and it is all that the make up is different.

    We just saw a picture of her yesterday. Doubt she has messed with her face in a few hours.

    look at make over shows. people can look like different people.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      This is coming from someone who likes her: she has 100% had Botox.

      Maybe you can’t tell from the still shots but if you see her in videos, doing promos etc, her face doesn’t move, forehead is STILL/frozen. She can’t form expressions.

      Trust me, I wouldn’t accuse if I wasn’t 100% sure.

  15. Madpoe says:

    resistance is futile

  16. ladybert62 says:

    Both outfits arehorrid – that first one gives me a headache and that second one does look like the outfit my husband wears when he teaches a mechanical class at night.

    Liar Obama certainly like to party with the famous – seems he is so busy campaigning he does not have time to govern. I will be glad when he is gone and I am sorry I ever voted for him.

  17. chloe says:

    I actually like the jumpsuit better than the dress and she needs to stick to her red lipstick. I didn’t even recogzine her in the first pics.

  18. Sweet Dee says:

    Am I the only one who sees a BLACK onesie?

  19. Trisha says:

    It’s the same with a lot of these “sample size” celebrities. They choose body over face, and once in their 40s, start looking a little hard—a little like women who maybe weren’t born women. (I don’t mean to be insensitive to that community, but it’s the only way I can think to put it.) When I glance at Gwen’s neck, I know there isn’t going to be an Adam’s apple, but for like a second, I’m surprised and think, “Maybe she had hers shaved down…” I know that’s mean, but come on, she’s ten years from WTF!? Madonnaland.

    • tmbg says:

      Oops, this comment was meant for sillyone below, but I’ll leave it here. Gwen really can’t help her strong Italian features, which she had even in her earlier days.

      Anyway, her face shape is a tiny bit similar to Heidi Montag’s before she got all of that surgery. And I remember Heidi getting comments about how manly she looked before she went under the knife. Then after she got her jaw shaved down so her face would look more feminine, everyone said Heidi’s original face shape was much more suited to her (which it was, IMO).

      These celebs can’t win. I have no idea why anyone would want fame.

  20. sillyone says:

    I know I am in the minority here but I must say it, she looks like a man in drag. Her face is large and manly, she just looks manly. I see nothing feminine about her in these photos.

    Now you can start yelling at me.

    • Tracy says:

      ‘She looks like a drag queen’, was my first thought seeing those top photos. So nope, you’re not alone.

  21. Happy21 says:

    I like the clothes, don’t like what she has been doing to her face. I don’t even know what she has done! Her lips look weird to me but I thought she always had full lips, lol, unless they were always full of fillers…

    She looked great in Harper’s Bazzar last month, what the hell happened since then?

    • emmieapricot says:

      Her lips are definitely filled… I just saw an old picture of her with a super thin upper lip. But the red lipstick sort of masks the work. Although I agree with you, overall something has gone wrong with her face.

  22. shewolf says:

    I wish I had a smile like hers… damn.

  23. guilty pleasures says:

    She’s a ROCK star not a mall mom! She looks great, courageous, a bit different, very pretty.
    BTW, I too hate when my kids melt down when the first lady shows up at my fundraisers.

  24. bns says:

    Her face looks…tight, but I love how her hair is styled in the second set of pics.

  25. mln89 says:

    i love her makeup, it’s always impeccable. and i like both of her outfits, i think she pulls off the jumpsuit because she’s so thin. the footless tights look ridiculous though.

  26. mytbean says:

    So I’ve got a question…

    Is there a clear cut difference between a long shirt and a dress? I would have thrown on leggings with this but is it because she’s wearing this silver number without pants that it suddenly becomes a dress?

    Is it just how a person wears it? I’ve always wondered…..

  27. Fleur says:

    Now that she’s in her forties, I just wish she’d go more natural with her hair and makeup. Darken the bleach blond with some caramel lowlights, stop flat-ironing it, try some makeup that isn’t so frosted, and I actually think she’d look much younger than she does here. I’m ready to get yelled at for this, but I think the pinup becomes much harsher past 40. Dita is getting away with it but she’s adapted her style of dress to very adult, mature sophistication. I also think actresses of that age should lay off the tanner (that means Goop, too). Amy is 38 and she still has the face of a 25 year old. No tanning, no harsh makeup. I saw a pic of her at the Master premiere and Amy looked the same age as the 20 something actress who played her daughter. And maybe 60 percent of that is very lucky genes, but Amy’s makeup and hair so very soft and natural. It wasn’t making a statement so much as it was enhancing her God-given features. I wish Gwen would mix up her look a bit.

  28. AnnieGrey says:

    Love the lighter lip color.

  29. A Fan says:

    I don’t like anything about her style. Just sayin’.

  30. Sugar says:

    If you don’t stop with your face Gwen u may end up the queen of tragic kingdom.
    again I am blown away by woman that I some how perceived as above it like her & Nicole Kidman it bums me out they feel that kind of pressure to mess up their beautiful faces.
    I will always remember when Gwen came on the scene she was bad ass girly & I could relate to her the chick who hung out with the guys.

  31. Amy says:

    You see mechanic; I’m seeing fierce flight suit. I kind of like it.

  32. Emma says:

    She looks anaemic.. eat a steak Gwen!
