Terry Richardson shot Gwen Stefani for Harper’s Bazaar‘s biggest issue ever (375 ad pages!). The theme of the cover story seems to be pink gowns, and they are absolutely lovely — the shots are both high fashion and sweet without looking saccharine, and although we usually aren’t huge fans of his, we think it’s largely thanks to Richardson’s favored clean, white background and simple composition. Gwen wears looks from Alexander McQueen and Oscar de la Renta to The Row and Versace in the feature.
“That someone would say something untrue or bad about me doesn’t bother me. It’s like water off a duck’s back. None of that stuff matters. There’s something in me, being this passive person, that those kinds of things don’t upset me. I know they can say anything; they can just make something up. But what are you going to do? It’s not part of my reality, so it’s okay.”
And on how she really, really loves to get dolled up:
“I’ve always been a girl who loves to dress up. I already put my makeup on twice today: I put it on to take my kid to school, and then I went home, washed my face, and put it on again to have lunch with you. I like to make my husband like me more, and he likes it when I’m wearing makeup.”
