The words 'mum' and 'cool fashion' don't necessarily go hand in hand, especially if, like us, your mum was a fan of Dynasty-style shoulder pads and clashing pastel makeup (sorry mum).
But we digress. Nowadays, mums don't come much hipper in the clothing department than queen of cool, Gwen Stefani. She oozes the term from every pore and makes dressing hip and playing mum seem like a breeze.
Take her outfit here as an example. She might be juggling (super-cute) kids and street navigation but the No Doubt singer and fashion designer makes it look effortless. Her outfit, consisting of a sleek black blazer, loose-fit striped trousers and killer shoe-boots, suggests she's en route to hang out with her band rather than spending the day in LA with her sons, Kingston and Zuma.
Proof indeed that whether she's on the red carpet or the streets of LA, Gwen has cool mum style licked.
