Gwen Stefani's Maternity Style
Gwen Stefani's Maternity Style
November 2, 2005
Gwen Stefani has looked as flawless during her two pregnancies as she did onstage during her recent world tour for The Sweet Escape. But will the uber-stylish singer who turned her high-glam street style into two clothing lines, L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers, ever come out with a maternity line? As far as she's concerned, she has more than enough projects on her plate. “Make babies, make music," she has said. "I’m on repeat mode.”
Stefani showcased the tiniest of bellies in head-to-toe L.A.M.B. at a launch of her men's sneakers line.

The Love.Angel.Music.Baby soloist hit the Billboard Music Awards in a white wrap dress and a headdress of poppies. The singer survived a world tour while pregnant. "It was hell on earth," she has said. "But to look out and see girls from the age of eight to 15 in the front row-who obviously didn't know that I was pregnant even though I was feeling like a big fat huge whale-they were looking at me like I was Cinderella. And it was so…amazing."

Stefani was vintage Gwen in a brocade coat at an N.Y.C. gallery opening for photographer Mario Testino. Her stylist Andrea Lieberman doesn't take credit for her client's signature style. "I don't think anyone can make her her," Lieberman has said. "She is so 100 percent pure Gwen. But I think one can elaborate and enrich it."

The very-pregnant star couldn't hide her bump at the Grammys, in a custom dip-dyed L.A.M.B. dress. She kept the pregnancy secret until the end of her tour. "I didn't want to become the Gwen Freak Circus Show-'Watch it grow onstage.'"

Stefani used an oversized coat to shield her bump from the paparazzi as she and her husband Gavin Rossdale took a stroll in London. According to Stefani, Rossdale knows exactly how to handle her extra appetite. "He's super into being a dad," she has said of Rossdale. "He's a creative cook. He makes whatever I crave, even when nothing seems to be left in the fridge."

Still mum about her pregnancy, Stefani (in a coat from Express) enjoyed an afternoon out in a London park with her son. "Kingston didn’t really change me so much as he just has made my life better," Stefani told V magazine. "It's just one of those miraculous human things that you have to experience for yourself."

Although Stefani has hardly altered her singular style during her pregnancy-here she dons a classic trench and Oxford booties for a walk in the park-parenthood has changed other aspects of her life. "My favorite time of the day is now six-thirty in the morning. We all get up and spend the morning together," she has said. "If you had ever told me that I'd be waking up at six in the morning and enjoying it-for whatever reason-I would have never believed you."

A sleek-looking Stefani hefted Kingston during an afternoon out. "I put him to sleep at night and, you know, I'll be rocking him to sleep and he'll be playing with my hair and…it's just the most amazing feeling in the world," she told V. "To have this little guy who loves me so much automatically, it’s just crazy."
