Gwen Stefani's Style Evolution: Punk to Fashionista in 10 Photos

The Girl Next Door (1992)

The plaid jumper and baseball cap just scream “girl next door.” Add some funky shorts under the skirt and a snapback for an added edge. Based on her looks, we speculate that Gwen has aged only five years since the filming of this video.

It’s been twenty years since No Doubt’s “I’m Just a Girl” video premiered, but Gwen can still rock a crop top.

Gwen’s straight fringe is on point. Unfortunately, it doesn’t seem like she’s going to bring it back anytime soon.

Gwen borrowed inspiration from her bandmate’s Indian heritage and popularized the bindi among mainstream America. The accessory would pop up in several music videos and red carpet ensembles through the '90s.

Although Gwen’s dedicated to the platinum-blonde life, she took a break to go pink at the turn of the millennium.

Gwen’s worn her hair braided before, but we love these long pink plaits with her fierce outfit. She’s played with dye since then, but nothing’s come close to this.

The Harajuku Girl (2004)

Love.Angel.Music.Baby was Gwen’s first solo album, and it marked a new era for her musically and aesthetically. Most of her costumes were heavily influenced by whimsical Japanese lolita fashion—and so was her posse of Harajuku girls.

Who didn’t love “Hollaback Girl”? Stefani’s laid back look is a throwback to some of her comfy-cool No Doubt outfits. Also, you’ve gotta love the band major get-up.

Videos from Gwen’s The Sweet Escape had some gorgeous retro costumes. The pop queen’s look ranged from Bond girl to femme fatale. The glamour of this era never truly went away.

The Natural (2015)

Gwen Stefani’s latest video has no gimmicks, no costumes, and aside from the colored tips of her fringe, nothing very wild. What makes her look so powerful? The natural realness of her emotions.
