Gwen Stefani is set receive the Fashion Icon Award at this year’s E! Peoples Choice Awards. The multi-platinum and Grammy-winning artiste’s victory comes as no surprise to us. Other than being known for her music, Gwen was always a standout on any red carpet, at any video shoot, or anywhere she’s been for that matter.
“It’s an incredible honor to receive this year’s Fashion Icon Award at the E! People’s Choice Awards,” said Stefani. “As an artist, musician and entrepreneur, fashion has always served as a creative outlet for me to express my personality and music. I am so grateful to receive this award and continue to be inspired by those who stand apart and embrace their unique style and individuality.”
Nothing speaks to individuality more than Gwen’s style over the years in the music industry. Gwen’s first impression was as the lead singer of No Doubt, a successful group with hits like “Don’t Speak,” “Just a Girl,” and “Hey Baby,” just to name a few. After the group parted ways, Gwen became a solo artiste, and she also gained mainstream success on that journey. She also carved out hits like “Hollaback Girl,” “Rich Girl,” and “What You Waiting For,” still pouring her individuality into her music and fashion sense, maybe even more than before.
“Honestly, it’s bizarre, it’s crazy! It makes me think back to Anaheim and just looking through Vogue magazine and thinking, ‘Oh, those girls, that’s not real. I’ll never get my hands on those clothes. I’m just going to go to the thrift store and make my own clothes’…To get to this point where I’m getting an award for fashion, it’s kind of surreal,” Gwen Stefani said.
Congrats are definitely in order for the music icon, for creativity personified, for the beautiful and inspiring Gwen Stefani!
