Style Icon: Nicole Richie

She Eats Nectarines With Honey And Spends Her Daddy’s Money

Nicole is this generation’s original wild child. When it comes to being known more notoriety than for talent, Nicole ranks high on the list. The only thing I never anticipated her to do was to completely and utterly turn her life around and pick up all the pieces–and quite stylishly at that.  I can’t help but root for the girl, despite the fact that her previous misfortunes were due solely to her reckless choices.

Style-wise this wild child is an icon. She started the oversized sunglasses phase (which has yet to end). She made headscarves an acceptable bad hair day fix. And she welcomed the boho chic revival with open arms and has yet to move on. No complaints here! Every single outfit of hers is an immaculate mix of modern and retro, taking cues from her past mentor Rachel Zoe. Comically enough, until designing her line House of Harlow of vintage jewelry, she really has had very few other career accomplishments. But her unwavering position as forerunner in the boho chic realm insures that I would follow her fashion sense to the ends of the earth.

The blond bohemian is now pregnant with a sibling for Harlow and I can only imagine what kind of hippie name this next one will get. Nicole seems happier and a lot healthier than she has in the past and has my full attention when it comes to street and red carpet style. Needless to say, we will not see Mama Richie rocking mom jeans anytime soon.

  3. I used to have such a negative opinion about her, but I’ve been looking for a celeb whose style I could mirror…if not, find inspiration from to dress a bit more stylish. Nicole is so stylish! Like Kristin said, there isn’t a look I wouldn’t wear.

  4. She has definitely turned her life around since the reality show The Simple Life, where I completely loathed how irresponsible and ignorant she and Paris behaved. I remembered Paris used to get all the attention but I think now Nicole has surpassed her in popularity and style, though I never loved Paris’s look to begin with. Now she is the go to person when it comes to fashion not only in clothing and jewelry but hair. I take her picture with me to the salon to achieve that easy but polished coif. I LOVE love the boho chic look she has embraced without sacrificing the California beach girl highlights and tan. Go Nicole!
