From blue-haired, fur-wearing teen to a glamorous red-lipped diva, there was no doubt (pun intended) that Gwen Stefani's unique style would make her one of the most iconic trendsetters in the music industry. Click through Gwen's fashion evolution and see how the singer's looks -- and shades of red lipstick -- have changed over time.

Gwen was surfer chic at the beach when No Doubt performed at the Clean & Sober Beach Party on July 27, 1989. Her bandmates wore lime green and light blue trunks, while the No Doubt vocalist jumped into the water in a blue and white stripped bikini top, bold printed shorts and hot beach body.

Taking fashion inspiration from Madonna, Stefani took the stage at the Roxy on Sept. 12, 1989 in a white tutu, layered over a pair of heart-patterened bicycle shorts. She topped the look off with a thick pink belt, white hairbow and stripped socks that looked ready for trick-or-treat.

Gwen's retro-punk wardrobe began to take shape here as she performed at the Shoreline Amphitheatre on June 14, 1996 in yellow patent leather pants -- accented by black zippers and a chunky black belt -- and a cropped white tank top.

In December of 1996, Gwen rocked a long blonde bob for a party to celebrate No Doubt's "Tragic Kindgom" album. Her sheer red tank top left little to the imagination, and she accented it with a red pout, red nails, simple jeans and henna tattoos.

The No Doubt singer's outfit at the 1997 American Music Awards crossed a traditional Hindu adornment with a bird of paradise. Her classic Hollywood curls, black gown draped in dark feathers, and Bindi looked gorgeous, but what's with the platform flip flops, Gwen?

Before Katy Perry revealed her blue locks, Stefani popularized the electric-blue hair trend back in Sept. 1998 at the MTV Video Music Awards. While the hair is fabulous, the shiny, futuristic skirt-over-pants look is a little drab, and she could have done without the furry blue bikini top and alien-esque face decorations. We feel bad for the Smurf that had to die for this look!

With a hint of blue tint still in her hair, Gwen looked a bit out of place at the 1999 "Go" premiere in L.A. The oversized black jacket and shapeless pants did nothing to show off Stefani's fantastic figure.

Gwen's blue period came to an explosive end as she switched out the cool hue for hot pink locks. She showed off the look -- dressed in a black-and-white top and tight red jeans -- alongside her band on March 11, 2000 at MTV's "Total Request Live."

Gwen traded in her usual punk look for a sexy sailor costume at the 2000 My VH1 Music Awards on Nov. 30, 2000. The bright blue top is cute and fits her perfectly, the anchor belt buckle is a nice touch, but the sailor hat is a little over-the-top. And don't even get us started on the intense (some might say clown-ish) makeup.

We see a starlet in the making! Although this look (for the 2001 Grammys) is more glamorous than her previous red carpet ensembles, Gwen's structured, ankle-length red dress could have down without the sheer red gloves, fishnet stockings and too-casual white bag.

Gwen rocked Rapunzel-like pigtails and a little black dress backstage at the MTV Movie Awards in June 2001. The dress fits perfectly and looks chic with just a few subtle accents, but we miss Gwen's short curls! As usual, she wrapped it all together with a red lip and bright red nails.

Channeling the same surfer look she rocked in '89, the No Doubt vocalist showed off her envy-inducing abs in a little red bikini at the Teen Choice Awards on August 12, 2001. She went Americana with stars on her top and a blue starred belt holding up her white-washed jeans.

Although she changed outfits during the 2011 My VH1 Music Awards, Gwen kept the same theme, with red, Rastafarian and herringbone accents on both looks.

Part Avril Lavigne and part Irish step dancer, Gwen tried out a plaid punk look at the 2002 Super Bowl, with knee-high black boots, a single red biker glove, and a strange tie/bikini/tank top/vest combo.

Looking at Gwen's simple yet edgy look backstage at the 2002 MTV Video Music Awards, we couldn't help but wonder: who put Gwen's leather pants through the shredder?

Gwen Stefani married Gavin Rossdale on Sept. 14, 2002, looking like a fairytale punk princess in a billowing white and pink wedding gown custom-made by John Galliano. Gwen later donated her gown to the Victoria and Albert museum, saying the dress was a work of art.

Four months into her marriage, Gwen took to the stage at the Super Bowl on Jan. 26, 2003. Looking sporty chic, the singer rocked a glittering halter top with high-top Adidas kicks, black athletic pants and lacy red lingerie.

Gwen hit a fashion hurdle at a Glamour magazine event on Sept. 7, 2003 in this horrible '90s-inspired look. The baggy jeans, leopard shirt and fur jacket were more throwback than fashion-forward.

Gwen returned to her old Hollywood curls and showed off her abs in an upward plunging white shirt and matching pants. As always, she wore red accents, and she paired the look with a L.A.M.B. bag as she revealed her line's collection for LeSportsac on Sept. 8, 2003.

The singer showed off her body again at the 18th Annual American Cinematheque Awards in a black plunging neckline dress and bouncy, 1920s-inspired blonde ringlets. She completed the flapper-esque look with an assortment of long, beaded necklaces.

Stepping out onto the red carpet in a delicate white Valentino gown, Gwen stunned at the 2004 Golden Globe Awards. While her pulled-back hair looked simple and chic, the fringed purse was a bit of a misstep.

Gwen sported a frilly and vivacious couture Chanel number to the 2004 Vanity Fair Oscar Party. The dress is glamorous and fun, but the fur shawl and bright gold clutch are a little too much.

The "Sweet Escape" singer looked a bit disheveled in this deep purple dress and Vivienne Westwood boots at a pre-VMA Party on Aug. 14, 2004. While we love Westwood's designs, these boots just don't work with this delicate silk dress.

Gwen walked the red carpet alongside her entourage of Harajuku girls at the 2004 American Music Awards, channelling Japanese style in a short, frilled skirt, white tights, top hat and ribbon-laced lavender pumps.

Gwen looked pretty in pink and brought a classic glamour to the carpet at the "Aviator" premiere on Dec. 1, 2004. In a ruffled pink dress and big, loose curls, the singer added her own flair to the retro look with leopard-print pumps that peeked out from under her dress.

Stefani channeled the '20s once again at the 2005 Grammy Awards, where she walked alongside husband Gavin Rossdale in pearls and a sheer black dress that showed off her shoulders and her legs. Her hair was high, her lips were red, and her simple shoes let the Versace dress speak for itself.

The "Hollaback Girl" has always been edgy, but over the years, her punk style has evolved. At the 2005 Festival of the Song of Saint Remo, Gwen took the stage in an open military jacket, small black gloves, and black-and-white blocked tights with a big red bow belt. Her animal print heels and pulled-back hair style wrapped up the sporty-but-sexy look.

Gwen quickly began creating a phenomenon in women's fashion with her Harajuku look, which continued at Movieline's Young Hollywood Awards on May 1, 2005. Gwen looked girlie and sharp in this refined plaid look, jazzed up with leopard heels, white leggings and an oversized camel bag.

Gwen kept it casual -- maybe a little too casual -- in baggy white shorts, a sleeveless printed T-shirt, gold bikini top and bandana headband at the 2005 Teen Choice Awards. For once, husband Gavin Rossdale was looking more put-together than his stylish wife.

The playful Harajuku look returned as Gwen previewed her Harajuku Lovers apparel line in L.A. on Oct. 22, 2005. She paired her petite blue and white dress -- accented by bows and ruffles, inspired by "Alice in Wonderland" -- with bouncy blonde curls and red lipstick, of course. While her look was feminine and childish, her accompanying Harajuku girls were more sporty.
Once again wearing Vivienne Westwood ...
Once again wearing Vivienne Westwood boots, we were glad to see they actually worked with the ensemble this time! Gwen launched her L.A.M.B. men's sneaker collection at Barneys in a masculine, army green look and pompadour hair. The "Rich Girl" singer added a hint of feminine flair with her signature red lipstick.

Gwen's casual look at Jane Goodall's 2008 Day of Peace wouldn't be a total disaster if the singer lost the white pants and rocked the yellow sundress with a cool pair of red sandals. There's something about flip-flops that just looks untidy.
