She may have been off the music scene for a while, but now that she's back, Gwen Stefani is making sure that everyone knows about it.
The 43-year-old No Doubt frontwoman proved that she's still got what it takes to be a popstar as she stepped out in California on Friday looking as stylish as ever.
Wearing her blonde hair poker straight and her trademark red lipstick, Gwen looked ready for the new phase in her musical career as she made her way to her recording studio in Burbank.

Not looking any different to how she looked when she burst onto the mainstream music scene in 1996, the mother-of-two wore chic black cigarette pants and a black and white striped jersey top, showing a hint of her toned stomach.
The Californian star added a black jacket and open-toe, heeled boots, accentuating her slim legs.
Clutching a Starbucks thermos and heading to her car, the singer looked ready for a day in the recording studio with her old band.

After an 11-year hiatus, the punk band have reformed and recently released their new album Push and Shove.
Since the band took a break, Gwen has carved out a niche for herself as a successful solo artist and has been working hard on her fashion line, L.A.M.B.
Although the band have performed on a number of TV shows since reforming, their big comeback gig will be at the MTV EMAs in Germany on November 11.
