Gwen Stefani is InStyleâ€™s November cover girl, and the rock star/mom opens up about motherhood, music and fashion.
"Being a mother is probably the most challenging thing I do,â€ Gwen says of parenting her two young sons, Kingston and Zuma. "The thing I'd like to do is enjoy these boys while they're youngâ€”so I don't regret I was working too much when they're big and don't want to cuddle with me anymore."
So what fashion and beauty tips does Gwen share with the mag? â€œMy hair color is L'Oreal, but I wonâ€™t reveal the number,â€ she jokes. â€œAnd I do my roots as often as Marilyn Monroe did hers. Iâ€™m serious. I found out.â€ Gwen's perfect platinum tresses come from a $12 box? Really!?
As for looking picture perfect, Gwen admits she never goes bare faced. â€œThe makeup goes on every day, even if Iâ€™m not going anywhere," she says. However, she does let loose when it comes to eating, which is surprising given her fab figure! "I'm conscious of what I eat, but some days I cave and have cookies," she says. "On fun nights with the family, my husband cooks amazing things and there will be carbs."
In addition to being a mom and looking gorgeous 24/7, Gwen is set to launch her third Harajuku line in a month and she also revealed that a new No Doubt album is slated for next year! How does she do it all!?
