Taking to the rotating star stage of the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo on March 15, Gwen Stefani performed to a crowd of nearly 70,000 people while looking as cool and as stunning as ever. She showed off the dazzling ensemble during a RodeoHouston Unplugged interview and gave a little insight into its inspiration. During Stefani’s 2021 residency in Las Vegas, there was a similar outfit featured that represented the time when she fell in love with her husband Blake Shelton. Luckily, two variations of the costume were made and she had the perfect opportunity to wear the extra at the rodeo.
Her cowgirl outfit was white all over, embellished with embroidered and beaded flowers, shimmering golden fringe, and the cutest glittered pink bow securing the collar. Fashion designer Jeremy Scott collaborated on the look with Stefani, calling reference to a picture of a cartoon she found, noting to the interviewers, “he made a real version of it.” The outfit — complete with white high-heeled cowboy boots — was the perfect match for her debut at the venue.
“I’m feeling nostalgic because I’ve waited two years for this,” she said during her set. “[Back then], I had a life in Anaheim, California. Now I live in Oklahoma and I’m at a rodeo. I feel like we are family now!” Nostalgia fueled the evening as Stefani blended a good amount of No Doubt hits with her own solo tracks, allowing for plenty of big sing-a-long moments. The fashionista continues to leave a lasting impression.
