I’ve talked before about how I don’t like giving people a pass for stuff just because of who they are — even SWINTON, really. She’s awesome to behold, and all, but if she looks insane I’m not pulling the punch. Ditto Gwen Stefani. However, there are definitely times when Gwen and her ilk can pull off something few others could, and she wore one such outfit to the Coldplay concert this weekend:

I mean, I would look ridiculous in that outfit. People would be all, “Are you in costume as one of the T-Mobile girl’s bike mechanics?” And yet on Gwen it looks natural and casual and cool. Even with the clashy red lipstick. Well done, madam. I don’t love your belt, but your moxie is appreciated.
