The 40-year-old musician/designer graces the cover of InStyle’s April 2010 issue. To welcome the spring season, she rocked a bright blue Stella McCartney top for the magazine’s Color Issue.
Writer Joyann King sat down with family woman Gwen to find out how she balances her career as a musician and L.A.M.B. designer. “I have to be creative to be happy,” she said. “I wanted so badly to have a backup plan for when I’m not performing anymore. Let’s be realistic: it’s not going to be like this forever. So I wanted to continue having something creative to do. I don’t have a strong sense of self-worth unless I’m doing something. I was a different person before I started to write. When I realized I could be a songwriter and that people would listen—that was when I started feeling good in my life.”
