Gwen Stefani, is that really you?

The Voice star’s wardrobe is normally anything but uniform so when she shared a photo in a Girl Scout outfit whilst sporting a short, brown bob fans went wild.

Gwen, 51, posted the most amazing throwback photo on Instagram earlier this year and she could not have looked more prim and proper if she tried. 

Her iconic platinum locks were replaced with a cute brunette do and she wore her Girl Scout uniform with pride.

Gwen looked adorable with her dad and sister 

In an Instagram video she discussed the story behind her song, Just a Girl, and in the process revealed details of her upbringing. 

"I have to really rewind. Like far, far, far back into the past to think of the story behind Just a Girl," she said in the social media video.

"I just literally started songwriting. I didn't even know that I knew how to song write. 

"My parents were quite strict with me and I was living at home even into my twenties and I would have to come home and like, knock on my parents' door, and it was frustrating because I was older. You know what I mean?"

"It got me also sort of paranoid about the fact," the singer added. "I can remember thinking 'wow, I'm in a car right now. I'm driving home, it's like one in the morning and if something did happen to me, I'm quite vulnerable, because I'm a girl'.

"Then you start to think, 'wow, maybe people actually look at me differently because I am a female'.

"So I just wanted to write a song to express how I was feeling in that moment and I never in my wildest dreams thought anyone would hear it."
