Gwen Stefani Covers Harper’s Bazaar September 2012

Lensed by Terry Richardson, Gwen Stefani looked enchanting in a wonderful Jil Sander gown with an oversized pink hat by Alexis Mabille Couture on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar‘s September 2012 issue . Here is what the 42-year-old singer had to share with the mag:

On her obsession with makeup:
“I’ve always been a girl who loves to dress up. I already put my makeup on twice today: I put it on to take my kid to school, and then I went home, washed my face, and put it on again to have lunch with you. I like to make my husband like me more, and he likes it when I’m wearing makeup.”

Gwen on staying fit:
“I hate talking about my body [all the time]; it’s ridiculous. There is no secret: you just have to eat healthy, work out, and torture yourself! But it’s more for my brain than it is for my body. I like to wear clothes too much, so I try to keep focused.”
