Our style crush, Gwen Stefani, is gracing the cover of this month's ELLE – and she still puts those other pop tarts to shame with her on-point style, incredibly hot bod and happy marriage with rocker Gavin Rossdale.
"Really? I don't see myself in those girls. I usually put pants on. I see these girls as more going for the sex-symbol thing," Stefani replied when asked if she thought pop stars like Ke$ha, Rihanna and Katy Perry are copying her style. "I was more, in the band, like a tomboy. Of course, I think every girl is sexy, so there's going to be a little of that. But I see a lot of younger artists going more toward the sexy thing."
It's true – Stefani came out of the gate with her ska-inspired look – I would know, I still have my Tragic Kingdom CD (yes, CD!) and No Doubt t-shirt from 1996. Need proof? Let's take a look back at Stefani's style evolution from No Doubt to L.A.M.B. – and everything in between.
Stefani immediately grab the music world's attention when No Doubt stepped out onto the scene. Her blond hair and cover girl looks caught male attention -- and her grrrl power attitude won over the female fans in an instant. Her early looks were purely ska punk: lots of white blond hair, pale makeup and shockingly red lips matched with Dickies pants, white tank tops, suspenders -- and of course, she helped bring the bindi trend to suburban America.

Stefani stretched her legs a little when the new millenium hit -- she struck out on a solo career and pursued one of her first loves, fashion. The result? Stefani's uber-popular L.A.M.B. clothing line that's adored by celebs ranging from Ashlee Simpson to up-and-coming fashion blogger Tavi Gevinson.
