Happy Birthday Gwen Stefani

A retrospective.
Synonymous with ever-morphing hairstyles, aspirational abs and a specifically 90s teen gurl sense of entitlement, is one Gwen Stefani. No Doubt's frontwoman turns 44-years-old today, and it's a milestone we couldn't ignore if we tried. Gwen bb, you're still 'Just A Girl' in our eyes (sorry). 
1995's Tragic Kingdom was No Doubt's strongest release, with 'Don't Speak' and 'Sunday Morning' likely functioning as soundtracks to your hairbrush-singing, bedroom karaoke sessions. Her 2004 debut solo album Love. Angel. Music. Baby. was brimming with more modern-classics like the fruity-cute 'Harajuku Girls', 'Hollaback Girl' and 'What You Waiting For?'.

On the non-musical front, she launched her fashions collection L.A.M.B in 2003, before taking it to new super kawaii levels in 2005, drawing on the ostentatious city of Harajuku. She also has two boys to Gavin Rossdale; Kingston and Zuma. You're probably well-attuned to her evolution anyhow. Let's now spend some time together fanning out over her style. 
Happy Birthday, Gwen Stefani!
