Where would the fashion world be without the influence of charismatic and flamboyant rock star Gwen Stefani?

This California bred superstar was introduced to the world in 1992 after she, and her fellow No Doubt bandmates, debuted their first album, No Doubt. From then on No Doubt would produce lots of 90’s hit singles such as Just A Girl, Don’t Speak, and Bath Water. The singles, Hey Baby and Underneath It All from their album, Rock Steady, each scored the group a Grammy.

In 2004, Stefani ventured out on her own releasing her first solo album, Love.Angel.Music.Baby.  This album would produce megahits like Hollaback Girl and Rich Girl featuring Eve. Along with the new album, Gwen also debuted a new look. Her “Harajuku” styled Japanese attire created a sensation, as young girls across America mimicked her every look. Thankfully, in 2004, Stefani decided to debut her fashion line LAMB. Stefani wore many of the looks on her tour as well at various events which garnered the line lots of attention.

Though it’s been a while since Stefani first donned those Harajuku skirts, she still delights the world with her unique, yet glamorous style. Nowadays, you can find the mother of three all over the world of media from acting as one of the judges on The Voice to becoming the brand ambassador for L’Oreal Paris.

Gwen Stefani proved that she could still churn out the hits when she released her third solo album, This is What the Truth Feels Like in 2016. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 and produced such hits as Make Me Like You and Used to Love You. In 2018, Stefani scored yet another career high when she started her 25 date residency at the Zappos Theater in Las Vegas. This will rightfully place her among the impressive roster of women, such as Celine Dion and Jennifer Lopez, who have graced the city with their presence and amazing talent.

How to Grieve Stylishly

Funeral fashion

Like many others I woke up Wednesday morning to the incredibly sad news of the passing of music icon Aretha Franklin.

It’s funny how you get so used to a certain presence that you never imagine what it would be like if they were no longer here.  As I began to reflect on all of my memories of Miss Franklin, another memory crept into my mind. Back in 2010, the world was saddened by the sudden suicide of legendary designer Alexander McQueen.  This sad occasion was memorialized at one of the most stylish and over the top funerals that I had ever seen. One by one, fashion icons like Naomi Campbell, Sarah Jessica Parker and Daphne Guiness strutted past photographers and thousands of grieving fans decked out in the latest McQueen designs.  It made such an impact on my psyche that I couldn’t help but fantasize about how i would style for a funeral. With the collections for fall 2018, there was no shortage of options.

It goes without saying that you shouldn’t be too sexy or flashy for a funeral.  Meaning anything that shows too much skin or over embellished with colorful sequins is completely out.

Now I’m not saying you can’t have a few accents. A subtle embroidery or print that isn’t too distracting is fine. After all, a true fashion lover isn’t going to change their whole style simply because of a sad occasion.

Any accessories should be minimal, however, they can still have some pizzazz. Nothing too over powering but with just enough detail to set yourself apart from the rest.

Something as sad as a funeral is stressful in itself, but maybe a stylish outlook will be a stepping stone to putting the pieces back together.

RIP Aretha Franklin
