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?

It’s a retooled version of an outfit I wore last summer only, my version had a lot more class and sophistication. Nicolette Sheridan also wore a version of it on Desperate Housewives just last month. This past summer, I caught a stalkeratzzi snapping my photo and then speeding away.

I agree with “hfm” above, Gwen tries too hard. She comes across as trashy. Sort of like a vampiress in drag, often coming close to a bag lady’s look. Her music’s a rip-off as well.

I start trends. To prove that I start trends I made bet a few years ago to someone close that a style would sprout after I’d invented a look. Designers inched closer to the look and finally nailed it after one year. I watched the celebrities and store displays until they finally got it precisely, colors and all.

I used to draw outfits I planned to make and discussed starting a fashion line with a friend. I missed my opportunities at celebrity and making the most of my fashion ideas, but there’s still a chance. People come up and ask me if I’m an actress or they ask if I’m a musician all of the time.

I think the outfit is OK but the sunglasses make her nose look weird. That was the thing that stood out to me when I first saw her picture – what happened to her nose?

Total Michelle Pfeiffer rip-off. Gwen is cute and all, but she’s no Michelle Pfeiffer, it just seems like she’s trying to hard.

BusyBee at 6:45:07 is right. She does look like someone in a witness protection program and the wig is so pretentious.

Funny. It brought tears to my eyes. I’m still laughing.

I think it’s cute. Not something I would wear, but Gwen can pull it off.

When I saw this photo I did not recognize her. I was trying to figure out who the transvestite was(or who the drag queen was attempting to impersonate). She looks HORRID like this!!!
