Gwen Stefani Honors Mom, Grandmother in Fashion Icon Speech at the People's Choice Awards

The multi-talented triple threat (singer, designer and judge on The Voice, to name a few titles) accepted the second annual Fashion Icon Award during Sunday's 2019 E! People's Choice Awards. Jeremy Scott presented the special honor to Gwen, who then took the stage inside Santa Monica's Barker Hangar with one unforgettable acceptance speech. "Gwen Stefani has never been just a girl," the Moschino designer shared in his fierce introductory speech. "She's a global superstar, an entrepreneur, a total bad ass and an artist in the truest sense of the word. She's this year's Fashion Icon."
The effortlessly gorgeous star was in disbelief as she accepted the esteemed honor, sharing, "This is hard to digest. I always, always loved fashion. It was one of those very instinctual things... So the fact that this is happening right now is hard to imagine, because it's just what I do. I love fashion!" Stefani continued, "I think one of the biggest blessings of the whole thing is just all the amazing, talented designers and people that have like taught me all the things that I know."
 
Stefani, who wore custom Vera Wang, called out to her boyfriend in the audience. “Wow, this is hard to digest. I just always, always loved fashion. It was just one of those very instinctual things, I think probably because of my mom. My mom, my grandma, my great-grandma (all) sewed clothes,” she said. “My mom would come home from school, and my grandma would have made her prom dress, so I feel like my favorite thing in my life is to go to the fabric store with my mom and pick out different looks … it was always there, so the fact that this is happening now is hard to imagine, because it’s just what I do.” Stefani concluded her speech by thanking her loved ones and fans. “I love you, Blake Shelton, you’re a babe,” she raved.
