Gwen Stefani will be honored with the 2019 Fashion Icon award at the upcoming E! People’s Choice Awards, the network announced on Tuesday (Oct. 8).
“Honestly it’s bizarre, it’s crazy,” the stylish superstar said of the award in a video interview with E! “It makes me think back to Anaheim, just looking through Vogue magazine and thinking, ‘…I’ll never get my hands on those clothes, I’m just gonna go to the thrift store and make my own clothes’…So to get to this point where I’m getting an award for fashion is kind of surreal, and it just proves that if you are just true to who you are and just follow your own passion, that weird things can happen.”
In the style world, the singer is best known for her long-running fashion line L.A.M.B. and its sister label Harajuku Lovers, as well as her own influential, boundary-breaking fashion sense.
The 2019 E! People’s Choice Awards will be broadcast live on Sunday, Nov. 10 at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT on E!, with the red carpet starting two hours prior.
