Gwen Stefani never tires of dressing to impress.

The 45-year-old singer's quirky aesthetic has inspired women all over the globe to experiment with their dress sense. She's earned the title of style icon now, but wasn't always such a dab hand at creating an on-trend look.

"When I started out, I didn't know anything about fashion," she admitted to Us Weekly magazine. "I had no money and didn't go shopping - I went to a s**t fabric store. Now, I love make-up and getting dressed up. It never gets old for me."

Rocking everything from a trendy trouser and top combo to gorgeous gowns, Gwen is a chameleon with her appearance.

One thing she is famous for other than her catchy music is her bold red lip, which she is rarely seen without. Luckily, fans can now recreate it as the star shared her application tips.

"Definitely, liner helps," she said of the secret to her look. "And you cannot lick your lips - ever!"

Gwen keeps herself busy these days with a stint on NBC's The Voice as well as recording new tunes. Quizzed on whether she's planning to tour her upcoming music, the blonde beauty joked she'd take her three sons with her to sell T-shirts from the back of the van.

They might actually be the ideal candidates to sell merchandise, if their style credentials are anything to go by. Gwen's eldest boys Kingston, nine, and Zuma, seven, love choosing their own outfits.

“The first one loves (to style himself) and the second one is really happy to wear sports outfits,” she smiled to People magazine earlier this year (15).
