Gwen Stefani is pretty in pink on the cover of the September issue of Harper's Bazaar - the largest issue in its 145-year history. The musical fashion designer wears a giant bright pink Alexis Mabille Couture flower hat and a soft pink Jil Sander Gown. Stefani traded in her bold red pout and wildly printed attire for a girly bubblegum style session.
Throughout the pages, Stefani stuns in elaborate designer pieces including a frothy tiered pink feather gown by Alexander McQueen and a sexy tight leather pink dress by The Row. The editorial transforms from "pretty in pink" to "bad girl black." Stefani dons a dramatic tulle wrapped Vera Wang bridal gown with leather gloves and baby pink rimmed sunglasses. In another shot, she's wearing a chic body-hugging Versace dress.
