out of the limelight but still cool as ever, we are still obsessed with rocker chic couple Gwen Stefani and Gavin Rossdale. we have been watching them for years, and love watching not only their sweetly romantic interactions, but also their awesome style evolution. gwen has always been the style maven, of course; from her red lips to her retro glam bleached blonde hair, she has always inspired us. in the 90s, as front-woman for No Doubt, she made Adidas track pants and crop tops chic; over the years she began introducing more femininity, while still keeping a sexy edge. plaids and florals, leather and bows; the girl has done it all, even wowing us in glamorous gowns that lent a princess vibe, but still managed to scream badass cool. all the while, Gavin has been at her side; as front-man of Bush, with his funky, highlighted waves and leather pants, and later on, in elegant suits on the red carpet, and still keeping his rocker vibe with a cool ponytail and cool tees and jackets.
