Gwen Stefani fans may have recently seen the star light up the 2022 Met Gala with a neon yellow, two-piece ball gown designed for her by Vera Wang.
What they may not know, though, is that the former No Doubt frontwoman’s Met Gala look had a subtle connection to her country superstar husband, Blake Shelton.
Stefani opened up to Vogue about being a fan of the feminine touches Wang always includes in her pieces. However, the pop star admitted she wasn’t always so comfortable rocking a softer look.
“Ever since I met my husband, that part of me has really come out in my fashion more than ever — the femininity that I didn’t really embrace for a lot of years, just because of being in a band with all guys and being on stage,” she told the magazine.
“With fashion and makeup, those things are, like, just such an extension of our personalities and who we are at the time and who we wanna be,” the three-time Grammy winner continued.
Stefani’s Met Gala look, while not a wedding dress, did have some bridal touches — such as its long train decked out with floral fabric designs. Wang also designed the dress Stefani wore at her wedding to Shelton in 2021.
