Gwen Stefani says she never thinks of herself as a sex symbol because she still thinks of herself as a "fat little dorky kid."
The stunning singer admits she is constantly stunned that men lust after her because she was overweight and unattractive as a teenager.
She said: "I still think of myself as a fat little dorky kid from Orange County who desperately wants to be cool."
Gwen admits she is also surprised people think she is stylish.
The 35-year-old blonde, who is famed for her outrageous dress sense, recently topped fashion bible Harpers and Queen's style icon list, beating supermodel Kate Moss to the coveted top spot.
However, Gwen, who has her own fashion range, L.A.M.B., told Britain's Grazia magazine: "I saw the Harpers list and I was above Kate Moss, who is amazingly stylish. I never thought anyone else would vote for me."
