Gavin Rossdale: I Love Kissing Gwen’s Bright Red Lips

Gavin Rossdale has officially given wife Gwen Stefani‘s signature bright red lips his seal of approval.

In fact, the Bush frontman is more than happy to sport a little of her crimson color on his own skin every once in a while.

“No, I don’t worry about [getting Gwen’s lipstick on me]. There’s plenty of ways [to get it off] — soap and water is fine. It’s all worth it!” Rossdale, 47, joked to Ryan Seacrest on Thursday.

But the supportive husband — who returns to the big screen in The Bling Ring, in theaters Friday — isn’t all about kiss and tell when it comes to Stefani.

According to Rossdale, the mother of his two sons Kingston, 7, and Zuma, 4½, also takes the cake for her holiday planning skills.

“I don’t know what to expect [this weekend],” he says when asked about his upcoming Father’s Day festivities. “Gwen is always really good at that stuff. She knows how to make any day fun.”

While Stefani knows how to keep any special surprises under wraps, the couple’s boys have a harder time keeping their dad in the dark. “They’re still at the age where they tell me about the surprises. Like, ‘Don’t go in that room, your surprise is in there,'” he says.

Rossdale may be receiving a pile of presents on Sunday, but typically it’s the doting dad dishing out the gifts. “I try not to [buy them a lot of presents] because I don’t want them to get used to it, but of course I do,” he says.

“As soon as I walk through the door [after being out on the road] that’s always the first question. So it’s nice to feel loved and missed. So yeah, I bring stuff [home].”

I don’t know any guy who likes red lipstick.

1) How many guys do you know?
2) Have you asked them?

There is a reason why red is the color of desire, people in the throes of passion don’t concern themselves with lipstick stains. If they do, I would consider their lust suspect.

I consider either the men who have said so less then truthful and/or you aren’t acquainted with many men. Before the age of Nude Gloss, red was the go to lipstick color for femme fatales. People in the throes of passion don’t generally worry themselves with a bit of lipstick on the skin.

What a wonderful couple

I’m sorry but her style is outdated, very 90s, Madonna. Her hair is fried, she needs to let go of the plat blonde. She’d look good as a brunette with up dated make up

Chloe. on

these two are great. 🙂

Nicole, you don’t have to say anything at all. So if you really felt sorry about saying something critical, you just wouldn’t do so.

Oh Julie, get over it.

Platinum blonde suits her to a T. I say this as a woman who wouldn’t be caught with any other hair color then obsidian.

Hey fashion icon Nicole, post a picture, let’s see your cutting edge style. Maybe you’re afraid you’ll end up at the wrong end of Joan’s wrath on Fashion Police…

Gwen is awesome and I love her style. They seem like a very happy and loving family. Keep doing what you are doing Gwen. You get more beautiful every year.

awww I love them! I’d be so bummed if they split up, like I actually know them or something LOL But they seem as genuine as you can be in that business.

Glad Gavin’s acting again, I always thought he was pretty good at it!


Love this couple!

I bet her lips are permanently stained… Nothing a little dw40 and some elbow grease can’t handle.

My husband mentions now and then how the first thing he noticed about me when we met were my beautiful red lips.
