b a n a n a s

I stopped at 7-11 on the way home from school yesterday to pick up Teen Vogue as I wrote about interviewing Gwen Stefani for L.A.M.B.'s Spring collection for the new issue! Once I got outside I tripped and fell in the parking lot and ripped a pair of new tights, but a few moments of pride were enough for me.

She was way nice and funny and the clothes were so pretty and Teen Vogue was nice in that the extent of their editing was just making sure you can't see what my t-shirt says. Should your heart desire, you can read my article here.
Now let's all take a moment to enjoy some of Gwen's greatest hits -- and I don't mean on the Billboard charts! Ho ho ho. Seriously though, personal style icon for real. These are my favorites.
And the video I mention at the end:

That's really cool, Tavi. ;) I've always heard she is super friendly. Have you seen her 1996 interview on YouTube? I believe it's one of the first ones to pop up under her name. It was always my favourite.

I would love to meet Gwen, she's such a talented beauty! You are terribly lucky :)

Ah Gwen, such a wonderful person. When I was a kid I thought, for some reason, she was Cyndi Lauper and in my book, they're both amazing. You sure are lucky to have met/interviewed her.

Gwen is amazing,and so are you!
You're very funny!

It always kind of awes me how intelligent and articulate you come across, being still so young - this is probably also due to the fact that I don't have that kind of ability.

I never really got into No Doubt or Gwen's music - but I really respect her style. I especially love the whole bindi/ blue hair combo she pulls off.

Alice said...

I have loved Gwen for nearly a decade, you could say I was obssessed for quite a time. And I will always see her as my ultimate icon. I really do love everything that woman is about! You are so very lucky to have met her

I live in the UK, I hope I can track this issue down :)x

zoomslow said...

What's that old saying... "Pride cometh before a fall." :-))

In future, instead of using that saying, I think I'll go with... "Did you hear what happened to Tavi Gevinson when she went to buy a Teen Vogue featuring her own article!" (So let that be a lesson to you, children!)

And I'm sure there's a smile going on in that photo on the right... The eyes are giving it away, but if only we could see it in full! ;-) But nah, you deserve to be smiling - this is AWESOME (No doubt!) :-))

Chloé said...

Gwen Stefani is the opposite of everything I dislike about "unique" celebrities.
She doesn't get her title of "original" by wearing head to toe runway looks because she has enough money to.

poluhroid said...

When I was younger, the first favorite band I ever had was No Doubt! I remember having a little cassette tape of their songs that I would constantly play. Needless to say, I envy you very much. Congratulations on the article!

favio said...

great post tavi, and gotta lova gwen xD she's just a girl, a really awesome girl

luvgmt.com said...

I like her voice. I like some of her outfits. I like some of her songs. And I hear she's a nice person.

Yet as much as I want to like her, I can't help but feel that she kinda... sucks.

When the whole riot grrrl and grunge thing was happening, female musicians were reclaiming the respect they'd been denied by the music scene for so long. They wrote powerful angry songs without fear of censure and going unheard. And those songs didn't go unnoticed.

They were liberating and empowering for other women. They benefited guys as well, because now they had to look at female musicians (and their fellow female fans) as human beings with something to say. Not just sex objects or fragile little girls who were easily disposable.

Most of these female musicians weren't conventionally attractive. Bands like 7 Year Bitch, Hole and L7 couldn't give a shit about looking pretty on stage.

Yet they forced the mainstream media to pay attention. Suddenly girls who weren't perfect looking could sell magazines by being on the cover.

Then No Doubt happened. Or should I say Gwen Stefani happened.

A 'nice girl' type with movie star looks who's lyrics DIDN'T rock the boat. I'm sure the media moguls jumped for joy at having a non trouble making pretty girl to market once again. Obedient, pretty girls are easier to commodify.

It was allegedly Gwen's mom and friend who made her stage outfits, not her. Yet she was trumpeted as this great style innovator while her designer friend went unnoticed. Then she was offered the solo career. Then the clothing line, for which she wasn't even head designer.

I realize music doesn't have to be revolutionary to be good. And that successful women of all types can be a positive influence regardless of what their background or appearance may be.

But to me Gwen Stefani just embodies all that disgusts me about the Hollywood influence on music. Women who stay in line and take a great photo are built up to be far more than they are. Honestly now. Would she have gotten as far if she wasn't conventionally attractive? Courtney Love was just as influential fashion wise back in the early 90s. Yet no one thought to market her as a fashion designer. Hmmmm.....

With few exceptions, the female presence in music has been pretty lackluster ever since Gwen was ushered in. Her arrival marked the turning point when badass girls were pushed aside, and the next crop of lip synching bimbos were just around the corner and ready to be accepted again. And for that, I can't help but associate Gwen Stefani with negative influences.

So there. I said it. While I liked the article because YOU did a good job with it, I think your subject is just as dull as Jessica Simpson.

I was so glad to see you in TeenVogue - your article was the only reason I bought it! I have kind of been going off Teenvogue because they kept putting Disney channel stars (who have nothing to do with style, only that they have a new tv show to promote) on their covers. I also love Gwen Stefani's Harajuku Lovers perfumes and I'd love to get something from her L.A.M.B clothing line, but a girl can dream...

nice article. only flaw: kinda short. and thanks for protecting my weak heart from the writing on that shirt, Teen Vogue.
i don't dig Mrs Stefani's music that much, but i doubt that the streamlined condition of pop (that might even qualify as a tautology) is solely her fault.
unrelated note: sweet earmuffs ^_____^

Good interview, Tavi--though maybe it deserves a followup. I'm sure there's a lot more to be said about the line. And how exciting to interview Gwen. Unlike most celebs turned designers, Gwen has always been the real thing because you can tell it's all stuff she'd wear.

Elisa said...

Cheers to Luvgmt's honest comment, I really feel where (s)he's coming from. There needs to be more space for riotgrrrls. But from the perspective of someone who was 12 or so when Tragic Kingdom came out, No Doubt was the hottest shit in the universe. The songs were fun and accessible, Gwen is beautiful and has an edgy sense of style that appeals to girls who are piqued by the unusual (I don't think of "fall in line" girls as being necessarily into No Doubt) and Gwen herself has no illusions about who she is and what she sings about and represents. She's always said she is very feminine and pretty much had ambitions of being married and having children and that her songs are about her experience as a woman and that she has experienced flak from others who say she's too passive, not angry enough, etc. We can't judge her femininity or experience of being and feeling like a woman. I dig that she is loudly "anti-feminist" (as some might say vis a vis her very traditionally feminine orientation) but really isn't being true to the kind of woman you are weather you wear sneakers, boot, heels or bindis the most feminist thing in the world? Sistas let's not hate on eachother! Gahhh

In other news, that video is STRANGE! She seems so fragile! Really cool, rare peek. Thanks for sharing.

lamb83 said...

LOVED reading your article on Gwen and L.A.M.B.,it was excellently written!!As a fellow ND and Gwen fan,I always enjoy reading articles about them that are well-informed,and yours was spot-on.Gwen truly is an amazing designer and musician.And to luvgmt,while Gwen has acknowldged that she had some help from her mom making her clothes while she was growing up,Gwen DID make her own outfits,as can be seen in that 1991 video Tavi posted.I agree with Elisa that neither Gwen's,nor any other woman's,feminity should be judged;Gwen is not 'anti-feminist' as some might claim-she's simply said that she wouldn't want to call herself a feminist without having a definition of it,and again,as Elsa said,the only definable aspect of feminism is being true to yourself,which Gwen has always been and has empowered millions of girls to be.In my opinion,Gwen is an extraordinary role model for young girls and is the farthest thing from dull.Thank you,Tavi,for helping the readers of Teen Vogue who may be unfamiliar with Gwen's fashion line and music see what an awesome person she is :)

Nice writing about interviewing (haha this sounds weird)..:) I agree with you about celebrity designs, I'm a little sceptic. However I really like L.A.M.B (especially the dress Gwen herself is wearing on one of these blog photos, and a model is wearing in the teen vogue photos..) she was always a really big style icon for me as well, I think she's super cool

I'm so jealous you got to meet Gwen! And I love the fact that you mentioned she doesn't want her brand to be eponymous with her fame, but with her actually sense of style. So it's great to bring light of celebrities who don't use their name to make money, but rather their talent. Great article and photos, it made me see that it was written in an honest manner!

Taviiii,

So yeah, since you didn't have a ask section thingy on Tumblr (sorry I'm not very articulate), I tried to reply to a question that started with "Hello Tavi darlin'," and then it proceeded to answer without my consent. Just a disclaimer, I'm not that creepy, which kind of sucks.

Anywaaaays, I just wanted to send you this link from Nomenus Quarterly: http://nomenusquarterly.com/04/ since your all "homegirls 4 lyfe," with the Mulleavy's ! You might have seen it, but I'm sure you won't be annoyed to see it again, it's beautifulllll.

mmmmkay, so i was your age (i think?) when gwen and the boys first started rocking the music world. i LOVE that you're appreciative of her style over the years (as well as drew and courtney, the girls in clueless, etc). however, i do have to admit it makes me feel old to be seeing 90s fashion becoming "retro". guh.

looking forward to reading your article!
