With her stunning Jean Harlow, platinum bombshell looks and inimitable style, Gwen strikes a pose for InStyle in an exquisite array of designer duds including a beaded silk Giorgio Armani jacket, blue sequinned Diane von Furstenberg dress, not to mention a beautiful silk chiffon gown from her LAMB label.

Revealing how she came to arrive at her signature beauty look, Gwen confessed: “When I was 17, my grandmother got me a gift pack with all these different-coloured lipsticks and one of them was burgundy. I tried it on, looked in the rear-view mirror and said, ‘That looks good’. I’ve worn it ever since."

She adds: "The make-up goes on every day, even if I’m not going anywhere."

And her uber blonde tresses? "My hair colour is by L’Oréal Paris, but I won’t reveal the number. And I do my roots as often as Marilyn Monroe did hers – I’m serious. I found out."

Maintaining a healthy lifestyle is also Gwen's top tip, as she explains: "“In the past, I was a runner and kick-boxer. I also did weight training. These days, I do Pilates, yoga and a lot of walking – now, it’s more about feeling good than looking good.”
