As Gwen Stefani marked her 54th birthday this past Tuesday, she was inundated with heartfelt tributes, the most touching of which came from her husband, Blake Shelton. The 47-year-old country sensation posted a sentimental black-and-white snapshot on Instagram, capturing an intimate moment where the pair are grinning at each other.

Blake's caption overflowed with affection, "Happy Birthday to my favorite person ever in any era of history! I adore you, @gwenstefani!"

This dynamic duo first crossed paths on the set of the vocal talent show, "The Voice", quickly turning their professional camaraderie into a romantic bond, eventually leading them down the aisle in July 2021.

Gwen's Birthday Gratitude & Launch

Known for her chart-topping hit "Hollaback Girl", Stefani, who has often emphasized her desire to make women her age "feel radiant", took to Instagram to express her gratitude for the deluge of birthday greetings.

"So touched by all the birthday love!", she expressed, also announcing the unveiling of her exclusive fan page. "This birthday, I wished to share the joy with all of you," she pointed to her newly minted @gwenstefanihq. Dubbed 'Team Gwen', this space is envisaged as a communal hub for Gwen's most ardent followers, boasting 'exclusive content' directly from the pop icon.

Celebrating its inauguration, Stefani revisited some of her most emblematic fashion statements in a brand-new photoshoot. This nostalgic trip resurrected outfits reminiscent of her Harajuku phase, her storied "No Doubt" tenure, and saw the revival of her hallmark platinum ponytail and a Marilyn Monroe-inspired hairdo from her leading days with the band.

Recently, in an intimate conversation with PEOPLE, Gwen divulged her perspectives on aging, revealing the philosophy behind her cosmetic line, GXVE Beauty. "At my age, many seek that zest of feeling vibrant," she said. Stefani emphasized the empowering essence of makeup, irrespective of age, lauding its ability to bestow confidence and nurture creativity.

Makeup, she reflected, is her therapeutic ritual, intertwining spirituality with preparation for her performances. Launched just last year, Stefani's GXVE Beauty has carved its niche and can be exclusively found gracing the shelves of Sephora.
