Gwen Stefani's New Look: Is It a Hit or a Miss?

11/22/2006 at 05:00 PM ET

Goodbye Harajuku Girls, hello Disco Fever! Gwen Stefani is the master of creating a signature look for each of her albums, and for her highly anticipated “The Sweet Escape,” she has done it again. Gwen hit the red carpet at the American Music Awards last night in a heavily banged platinum wig, white shorts and a keyhole top from her L.A.M.B. line, and sky-high gold stilettos. Gone is her red lipstick and rockabilly hair, replaced by heavily-lined smoky eyes and nude lips. Of course, she still has her ultimate accessory — hunky hubby Gavin Rossdale. Tell us: What do you think of Gwen’s new look? Is it a Hit or a Miss?

She tries too hard.
And she looks bad.

I like the wig’s style on her. Maybe if she cut her actual hair it would look even better because it would obviously be natural! I do agree she looks like Michelle Pfieffer a la Scarface, which is not a bad thing!! I do not like Gwen’s over-all style usually. It seems like she is trying to hard to be in your face and noticed, and not like she is just doing her own thing. She usually looks silly and costumey which is not a good thing for a 30+ woman!

It’s not one of my fave things that Gwen has ever worn but she is still one of my fave people and I still totally admire her style. I do think that the wig is a bit severe and I really miss the red lips.. She can pull anything off because well that is just Gwen Stefani for you~

She tries too hard?! What the heck! Gwen is the fashion It girl. Have you seen how many celebrities are rocking her L.A.M.B. clothes line? She is definitely the trend setter. She’s always rocked on her own, doesn’t let anyone tell her how she should or shouldn’t dress. Gwen was doing the red lip thing since she started in the music industry and now you see all those celebs doing the Marilyn Monroe red lip thing. I for one love her!! She is an inspiration to alot of people. Go Gwen!! I love you!

it is so annoying when there are different opinions and when people say they don’t like something, they’re labeled as

can’t people have more than one opinion? and the people name calling..what does that say about you?

Oh, I forgot to rate this.

Definitely a HIT in my book.

You know what I always notice in pictures like these? The background people! It’s so funny. They look so everyday compared to the celebrities! Check that out in more celeb pictures. It’s funny!

Anyone else here love Gavin’s haircut. It’s cuter tan that long larry appleton look he rocks.

She looks like a drag queen to me.

And I agree with meme, she tries too hard to be cool.. EWW

Wigs are ok, when they don’t look like wigs that is! But here she looks like somone trying to hide out in the witness protection program.
