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?

Looks bad, too plastic. It hides her face too much. She looks really pretty in her “Wind it up” video where her hair is swept to the side with a pin or something and she’s wearing nude lipstick.

I don’t see what all the fuss is with Gwen…I do not consider her a style icon at all! I think she tries too hard to be like Madonna!

First Madonna goes 70’s with confessions on a dance floor,
now gwen with the sweet escape.

As a new Mom, you really try to feel good about yourself after the baby comes and Gwen is back after having the most beautiful little man; in addition, she is working hard at getting back her figure (which it looks like she has) as well as trying to get back on her feet in the music industry! I agree that she has always been an “It” girl for the fashion world, but please give her a break on this one- she is trying to reinvent herself in a very tough and cynical industry and trying to keep things new and exciting for you, her fans. As a wife and mother myself, I think she is a classy lady and I for one am happy to see that she is back and better than ever- at least she is not running around without her pants in public for all of the world to see (Britney)!

She looks awesome. Something new for a change, totally scarface, love it. She’s got the best style and she’s a great mom.

I think she looks freakin’ amazing; C’mon guys, you guys think Britney looks could with her slighty less fat body (and chubby face, meaning only 1 thing: LIPO) and Gwen looks bad?! She looks like a model. But to to the Hollywood stars: I don’t think you should be shooting out kids, they make you look like Hell (Gwen, Britney, etc. looked MUUUUCHHHHH better before, fashion challenged, but better) and your marriages will not last, either.
