As one of the most popular faces in music and fashion, Gwen Stefani can be said to have shaped pop culture.
Debuting on stage as the frontwoman of No Doubt, Stefani ventured into her own right and built a massive empire. As previously reported by Billboard in 2005, she started her own fashion label LAMB before expanding with another line called Harajuku Lovers. “Music and fashion all come from the same place of creativity,” Stefani said. “It’s an extension of my personality. I can’t explain why I like it, it’s just always been that way for me – like pizza.” Stefani has since launched her own collection of fragrances and eyewear. In 2019, the “Rich Girl” hitmaker was honored with the E! People’s Choice Award Fashion Icon Honors, which revealed their brands had surpassed $1 billion in retail sales.
As of 2022, Stefani is worth a staggering $160 million, according to Celebrity Net Worth. It goes without saying that the mother of three is a financial giant. How big is Stefani really in the flesh?
Gwen Stefani is shorter than you think
Have you wondered how tall Gwen Stefani is? Well, you’re in luck, let’s tell you. According to CelebHeights, the No Doubt singer is 5 feet 6 inches tall. As noted by the Cleveland Clinic, the average height of women today is 5 feet, 4 inches, making Stefani two inches taller than average. Still, many people may have imagined the “Make Me Like You” hitmaker to be longer than that.
There are many ways Gwen Stefani has made herself seem taller than she is over the years. As most already know, she loves fashionable moments and is not afraid to show a super glamorous appearance. As previously reported by Shoe Post, Stefani wore a pair of black Christian Louboutin 5-inch heels as she posed alongside her co-stars in The Voice. In the picture, Stefani appeared to be the same height as Pharrell Williams, who was only seen wearing lace-ups, although in reality she is much shorter than the NERD frontman. According to CelebHeights, Williams is 5 feet, 8.5 inches tall.
Another example is the snapshot above. Stefani was photographed on the red carpet for the American Film Institute in a long train dress that covered her feet and left it to our imagination whether she was wearing heels or flats. Additionally, she wore her blonde locks in a high bun, which gives her extra height.
How much taller is Blake Shelton compared to Gwen Stefani?
Gwen Stefani clearly likes her men big. Her first husband, Bush frontman Gavin Rossdale, stands at 6ft, 1in, according to CelebHeights, while her current husband, country singer Blake Shelton, is 6ft, 4in, making him 10in taller than his wife. As can be seen in the picture above, it is clear that Stefani is relatively smaller than Shelton.
Stefani and Shelton first saw each other while they were both working on NBC’s hit competition show “The Voice,” according to Billboard. Over a year after meeting, the two struck up a romance and have since become one of the most talked about couples in Hollywood. Shelton has been a coach on “The Voice” since season one and previously admitted he’s taller than everyone else on the panel, telling Entertainment Weekly in 2014, “It’s easier for them to find clothes.” The Nobody But You hitmaker continued, “That’s the bad thing about being big and fat at the same time. Nothing fits. If you see me on red carpets and I look disgusted on my face, it’s because I’m uncomfortable with what I have to wear.”
In 2018, Kelly Clarkson joked on Late Night with Seth Meyers that she’s always “on two levels” when photographed with Shelton, otherwise she’ll look like “an oompa loompa because I’m 5-3.”
