"As an artist, musician and entrepreneur, fashion has always served as a creative outlet for me to express my personality and music. I am so grateful to receive this award and continue to be inspired by those who stand apart and embrace their unique style and individuality."

The No Doubt frontwoman was chosen for the accolade for her timeless and "unique" sense of style.

E!'s news, live events and lifestyle digital general manager Jen Neal said: "Gwen Stefani is a global music artist, whose unique signature style and individuality has transcended time.

"She has effortlessly evolved her success in music to fashion design launching numerous popular lifestyle brands, and for all of her many accomplishments, we're proud to name her our 2019 E! People's Choice Award Fashion Icon honoree."

Last year, the Fashion Icon Award was handed out to Spice Girls singer-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham.

When she picked up the accolade, she paid tribute to her Spice Girls past.

Referencing a lyric from their debut single "Wannabe", she said: "I always told myself, 'Dream big and then dream even bigger.' And I wanted to show that if I can do it, anyone can do it. And what you can achieve really can be limitless... They told me at the table, they said, 'You come all the way from London, you gotta get up there and give 'em what they want, what they really, really want.''

Victoria then spoke about how the Spice Girls' "girl power" message is now more relevant then it was in the 90s.

She added: "So many years ago, I started with girl power, and now that message is just as strong as ever but now it's through the privilege of being able to empower women through my designs."

The 2019 E! People's Choice Awards will take place at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica on November 10.
