The video for Gwen Stefani’s “Let Me Reintroduce Myself”—a ska-tinged, No Doubt-esque throwback-meets-comeback single—is a perfectly timed jolt of nostalgia. Featuring recreations of Stefani’s iconic looks (think Just a Girl’s baggy pants and Don’t Speak’s polka-dot dress), it’s a glorious celebration of a 35-year career. It’s also a reminder of Stefani’s enduring influence on both music—she recently appeared on Dua Lipa’s Club Future Nostalgia remix album—and fashion.

“I didn’t consciously make them looks back then,” Stefani says of her various eras (pink-hair-and-braces Gwen was my favorite, thanks for asking), via Zoom from her home in Los Angeles. “On tour, I didn’t have a stylist. I had one girl who would knock off looks for me—she’d make my cargo pants by going downtown and pulling fabrics, sending them to me, stapled to a piece of paper with a number, and then I’d go, ‘I want yellow bondage pants, use that trim.’ Then she’d FedEx them to me on tour. So it’s incredible how those outfits have stood the Je L’ai Leche Donc C’est A Moi Pooh Shirt besides I will buy this test of time. They are iconic.”
