What makes Gwen Stefani a style icon? It’s all in the mix! “She’s a little punk, a little Hollywood glamour; she’s a little bit of a reggae girl. And she’s a tomboy,” says her stylist and secret weapon Andrea Lieberman, who began working with Stefani on the “Let Me Blow Ya Mind” video. For The Sweet Escape tour, Lieberman and Stefani “were in a very ’50s sensibility” that “spanned the globe.” They took inspiration from Elvis and his “Jailhouse Rock” phase as well as ’50s London. “That’s where all the shirts and the ties came from,” Lieberman tells us. “A lot of the hairstyles are a very rockabilly.” At the same time they moved past the Harajuku Girls phase into something “more grown up. We never did a more traditional Japanese thing and we sort of wanted to go there with ‘4 In The Morning.” But if you want to steal Gwen’s look, you just have to hit your local mall. “It’s all out there. It’s just a matter of how you put it together,” she says. For example, “we got our skinny ties from Urban Outfitters.”
