Gwen Favors Fashion Over Food

Gwen Stefani has rocked her own style since her signature rhinestone bra days with No Doubt. In this month's issue of Harper's Bazaar, Gwen admits that keeping up her look is not as easy as you'd think. Here's more:

On her ongoing battle with weight:

"Seriously, though, it's very boring and embarrassing and I hate talking about it, but it's true: I've always been on a diet, ever since I was in the sixth grade. It's an ongoing battle, and it's a nightmare. But I like clothes too much, and I always wanted to wear the outfits I would make. And I'm-" another chuckle "-very vain."

Looks like vain worked for her. She's got her own fashion line and three Harper's covers to celebrate this month.

As far as I am concerned "GWEN IS FASHION" !!! That's why she is gracing the cover of Harper's for the 3rd time, the NUMBER ONE magazine even over Vogue.

That's gotta be hard having people asking you over and over again about something that is embarrassing.

i really hope her openness in interviews doesnt come back and bite her in the ass, the fact that she is so willing to put herself out there and just be herself is what makes her so unique why is it harder to believe keith richards didnt snort his father?

I'm glad that she admits to dieting instead of all of the actresses and models who claim to have a fast matabolism. Yes, I believe some people really do have fast matabolisms. I'm pretty thin and I don't work out or diet much. But I do admit that I try to go to the gym and for the most part eat pretty healthy. And I'm not even as stick thin as some of the girls who claim to have fast matabolisms. Gwen has admitted to dieting before as well. Its definately refreshing that she is so honest about it.

Good for her being honest!

It's nice she admits it! Nearly every star won't even admit they diet at all. It's just "natural" and it's "good genes".

I'm glad she's honest about watching her weight. The 'all I do is cut out dessert' brigade don't half get on my nerves.

I loved old Gwen back in the early days of No Doubt. She was so much cooler back then. She is vapid now.

Wow, she is cool for talking about struggling with weight. She has always looked wonderful -- either really athletic looking like in her earlier No Doubt days or very svelte. But she is beautiful no matter what.

At least she talks about it! It's reassuring for the rest of us to know it's not easy

She is fabulous, I really like her, she's so normal and down to earth and doesn't try to be someone she's not.

She looks fabulous here. It's a shame that our culture forces pre-teens to obsess over their bodies and food. My twelve year old is already thinking she is "too fat". This is a child who dances, eats healthy and is as thin as can be. It really upsets me because no matter how much we parents try to tell our girls they are beautiful, they are forced fed these lies about what they should look like. I'm glad Gwen and Kate Winslet have been so open about how much of a struggle it is to maintain these ridiculous standards of beauty.

That's a great cover. It *is* refreshing to hear celebs be honest about the upkeep for their appearances. It's good to know that they're human and have the same struggles as the rest of us.

I remember reading an interview she did in Teen Vogue where she said she was an overweight child and that her mom put some pressure on her to lose weight
