In addition to discussing her looks, fans also reminisced about Gwen's recent antics that paid homage to her husband, country singer Blake Shelton, who recently bid adieu to The Voice. 

Gwen, during an episode of the same show, playfully mimicked Blake's signature move of pointing at his head, a gesture he'd often use to woo contestants. Capturing this cheeky nod on her Instagram, Gwen quipped: "Blake Shelton taught me well!!"

Blake's exit from The Voice in 2022 came after a 12-year-long association. Expressing gratitude, he wrote: "This show has changed my life in every way for the better, and it will always feel like home to me."

Life after The Voice has seen Blake retreat to quieter pastures, literally. He and Gwen are now tending to their sprawling 1,300-acre Oklahoma ranch.

A recent video showcased Blake proudly displaying a tractor, a new addition to the ranch, hinting at a more laid-back chapter in the couple's life.

Fans have been vocal about their desire to see more of this relaxed side of the couple. Calls for the duo to have their reality show heightened after Gwen shared a charming video of the two crafting a blackberry pie.

While Gwen continues to make waves on The Voice, her fashion remains a topic of conversation. 

A recent ensemble she sported — a unique dress with bird-like feather details, paired with fishnet stockings and sky-high boots — elicited mixed reactions. Some fans were in awe, applauding her edgy style, while others drew comparisons with other celebrities.Throe
