With her perfect light gold locks and trademark red lipstick, it's easy to forget that Gwen Stefani hasn't always looked so classy.
The No Doubt singer's beauty past includes overdosing on decorative bindis, bad braces and blue hair. Don't believe us? Take a look for yourself!
Beauty Evolution - Gwen Stefani
Breaking onto the music screen as the mid-drift baring front woman of the Orange County ska band, No Doubt, Stefani's look was one part "homegirl", one part punk rock chic, and one part Indian goddess.
Taking her love for bindis just a little bit too far, Gwen went exotic at the Billboard Awards.
Still rockin' the binidis, the No Doubt songstress created a rad rave-revival look by dying her hair blue.
A self-confessed makeup addict, Stefani told InStyle magazine "I haven't seen my real hair colour since ninth grade!"
Still pink, Stefani went light on the makeup, letting her braces make the statement. No doubt, teen girls everywhere thanked her for making metal mouths so chic!
Looking like Baby Spice gone bad, Stefani let her hair down (and a lot of hair that wasn't hers!) at the VMAs.
Matching her makeup to her So-Cal outfit, Stefani let her inner home girl shine pairing nude lipstick with dramatically contrasting dark lip liner.
Ever wondered where she got her flare for makeup? Before Stefani made it big in the music biz, she manned a M.A.C cosmetics counter to pay the bills.
In a clear case of life imitating art, Stefani walked the red carpet looking like the reincarnation of her character in The Aviator, Jean Harlow.
