Gwen Stefani graces the October cover of Marie Claire: “My biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far”

Gwen Stefani is Marie Claire’s October cover girl, and she is looking hotter than ever these days!

Some sites are commenting on her face, and whether or not she’s getting plastic surgery. If she is, it’s not obvious. I think she looks pretty fantastic.

In the magazine she opens up about her relationship with Gavin Rossdale, and considers her marriage her “biggest accomplishment”. Here are some more highlights via Celebitchy:

On rearing two high-energy boys just a few years apart in age: “From the moment they wake up, they start beating on each other. I never knew they would be so physical. They’re just starting to play real well together, but with a lot of fighting. They do look out for each other – especially the little one, he really loves his older brother.”

On what her 10 year anniversary with Gavin Rossdale represents: “A miracle…my biggest accomplishment is my marriage so far. Because it’s hard, everyone knows it’s hard.” She continues: “[Marriage] is something that I always wanted to do successfully. It was a dream of mine. I like the official-ness and the family-ness of it all, having the same name and making decisions together.”

On her relationship with husband Gavin Rossdale: “[Our relationship] is better than it’s ever been. Like, we’re learning about each other all the time. He’s an amazing dad, he works so hard – I can hear him writing songs through the wall, and it is at a much quicker pace than me!” Above all, she adds, “He balances me out. And he – he never stops liking me, which is awesome! It makes me feel happy, that someone likes me as much as he does.”

On having a third child: “I really, really, really wanted one about two years ago. And it didn’t really work out. So…I feel good with what we’ve got. Everything works out how it should. You can’t plan anything, right? You can try.”

No Doubt’s new album Push And Shove: “My favorite record. I mean, your favorite record is always the last one you did, but it really is—it’s a really great record.”

Being a mom and a rock star: “I was definitely swimming upstream,” she says, “trying to balance everything that’s been going on with having kids and a family. There’s no way to do all these things.”

Working on the new album: “I would be up all night because my second baby [Zuma, now 4] didn’t sleep, and he had a lot of ear infections. Then I’d wake up in the morning and do my workout, which I always felt I had to do, and then meetings for my three clothing lines, and then hang out with my kids, take them topreschool, da-da-da. And then at 4 o’clock, I’d be like, ‘All right, I’m out of here, I’m going to go to the studio’ and try to write a record. Sit on the couch [with my bandmates] and be like, ‘Let’s do this now because I’m missing time with the kids; I could be having dinner with them and putting them to bed.’ It was really hard.”

Balancing: “Every day I fail at something,” she laments. “Every day someone is suffering because I’m doing all these things.”

Downsizing: “I’ve got myself in a lot of trouble by not saying no.” The solocareer? Buh-bye. Her weight? She’s got a new approach: “This last year I kind of stopped working out. I think my body just needed a break. And so I did that, and focused more on feeling good as opposed to beating myself up.” She’s even eased up her efforts on her L.A.M.B. (Love, Angel, Music, Baby) fashion line. “I have learned to delegate. It still looks awesome, but did I pick out the buttons? No, I didn’t. I missed the last two Fashion Weeks because they were when school started; I can’t miss the first week of kindergarten.”

I love her, and I love her relationship with Gavin! I saw them in concert – on the tour that brought them together back in the 90′s. The tour where ‘No Doubt’ opened for ‘Bush’. It was amazing!

Speaking of ‘No Doubt’, I sure hope the rest of their new album is good. I’m not a huge fan of the first single.

Gwen Stefani: “Makeup goes on every day, even if I’m not going anywhere”

Gwen Stefani is InStyle’s November cover girl. In the magazine Gwen opens up about her daily beauty routine. Gwen reveals that she has a rather addiction to dying her hair, which she claims to dye as often as Marilyn Monroe did. She also admits that she doesn’t leave the house without makeup.

In this issue, the rock star designer opens up about doing so much in so many arenas—fashion (she launches her third line Harajuku Mini for Target mid-November), music (a new No Doubt album is slated for next year), and family (“being a mother is probably the most challenging thing I do,” she says of parenting Kingston, 5, and Zuma, 3, with husband Gavin Rossdale). 

Whatever she’s doing, it works, because she looks amazing! Considering she’s 42-years-old (can you believe that!?) she’s definitely doing something right!

Gwen on finding balance: “At work I’ve learned how to delegate. You don’t have to be on a ladder in a warehouse, micromanaging. You can be at home. And teamwork is also such a big part of marriage and parenting.”

On making time for her sons: “The thing I’d like to do is enjoy these boys while they’re young – so I don’t regret I was working too much when they’re big and don’t want to cuddle with me anymore.”

Her trademark blonde: “My hair color is L’Oréal, but I won’t reveal the number. And I do my roots as often as Marilyn Monroe did hers. I’m serious. I found out.”

The one time she went red: “Right after we came home from the first No Doubt tour I felt like I might get recognized, so I colored my hair red. And I hated it.”

Her makeup: “The makeup goes on every day, even if I’m not going anywhere.”

Gwen Stefani’s collection Harajuku Mini for Target is practically here! The retailer just released photos of the rock star fashion designer’s first children’s line, which includes accessories and apparel for babies, toddlers, and tweens, priced from $4 to $30. “The kids clothes are a reflection of things I wear,” Stefani told InStyle (she’s our November cover girl). And references to her own wardrobe are clear—plaid pants reminiscent of her look in No Doubt’s “Spiderwebs” video, and a faux-leather jacket and dress combo that looks like a smaller version of a recent L.A.M.B. runway look. Preview the entire collection in the gallery, and shop it at Target stores and Target.com November 13th.
