Call me crazy, but I am loving this bright lavender shade Nicole Richie debuted on Instagram earlier this week. It’s so lovely with her skintone and perfectly aligned with her wild sense of style. What do you guys think? Too wacky? Too reminiscent of Kelly Osbourne? Or freakin’ fabulous and on point for a funky fashionista like Ms. Richie?
Paris Hilton dressed as Miley Cyrus for Halloween and is she is rocking the look. I guess she looks, “hot.” Her Instagrammed photo says, “Twerk or treat,” which might be the quote of a generation. As we predicted (and just about everyone else on the planet did) Miley’s VMA performance would spark one of the hottest costumes this year. Perhaps more so than Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” look or Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” unitard fierceness. Hugh Hefner and, wife, Crystal Harris suited up as Robin Thicke and Miley, which is a testament of the twerker’s cultural reach. Seriously, Hugh Hefner is like 90,000,000 years old, I can’t imagine that guy listening to Bangerz.
What’s best about celebrities dressed as other celebrities is that it makes them seem sort of normal. It shows how much the media’s image of one celeb appears the same to another celebrity. Jennifer Love Hewitt’s “Brangelina” (in the gallery at the link) is spot on but also shows how much Brangelina is defined by how many children they’ve adopted together and all the paparazzi photos we see of the family traveling as a pack.

If you’re like me, you’ll swear up and down you’re not going to do anything for Halloween this year, then accept an invite to a costume party at the very last minute. Don’t be that jerk who doesn’t show up in costume — be that jerk who shows up in just cat ears and calls it a costume! Nicole Richie did just that at a soiree in Hollywood this week — and, okay, it wasn’t even a costume party, but still. Details on the four purr-fect cat ears above are after the jump! Keep reading »
Nicole Richie loves rap, but she wants rappers to rap about things she cares about. For her new occasional AOL video series “Candidly Nicole,” Richie visited rapper/producer Ebone Hoodrich, who is tasked with helping her create a rap so she can “get her street cred back” (which is a thing she never had, and is therefore impossible to lose). What does Nicole Richie — street name Nikki Rich — rap about? What are the central tenets of her life? Well, bangs, gluten-free spaghetti, and complaining about her plantar fasciitis. So yeah, basically she’s just like you and me. [E! Online]
Nicole Richie is on a mission to be a bit more of a drag queen. So who better to learn from than the most legendary lady of them all, RuPaul?
“I don’t want to regret that I didn’t take advantage of my drag years,” Richie admits in the latest episode of her hit AOL webseries, “Candidly Nicole.”
That’s why the style maven steps into RuPaul’s school of drag, where she finds out how to dress, act and even speak like a true queen. And if you too are feeling the itch to dial up the drag in your life, here are five take-home tips. Read more on Celebuzz…
Nicole Richie is not good at a couple of things — namely being a nice person while filming the oft-maligned early 2000s television show “The Simple Life” with Paris Hilton. Thankfully she’s over that terrible phase in her life, and can focus on more important things, like her marriage to pop rocker Joel Madden and her two cute kids, Harlow and Sparrow. And perfecting the fine art of layering. She’s like, really, really good at it. Hopefully it’s something she’ll pass on to her kids, while burning every single copy of “The Simple Life” she can possibly find.
Nicole Richie, what a ride, people. This little lady has gone from fashion atrocity to one of the defining stylish ladies of our generation. Take the incredible look she wore to the Fifi Awards: Doesn’t she look a little Barbra Streisand in “Funny Girl”? We’re totally in love with this Emilio Pucci dress, which is about the only application of the mullet hem we can stand. What do you think?
I hated — hated! — Nicole Richie in her “Simple Life” days. I mean, didn’t you? She was bratty, annoying, and entitled with crusty hair extensions and a tiny dog, whining and generally acting despicable alongside her equally (if not more) horrible cohort, Paris Hilton. That’s why I love Nicole all the more now: she was that girl, and now she’s … kind of the antithesis of that girl. She’s a mother, a wife, a designer, a TV show co-host, and an all around cool, normal-seeming person, with great style to boot. I just love how drastic her transformation was in the most positive way possible; Nicole is a real testament to the fact that you can be whoever you want to be, provided you’re ready and willing to make the change.
It’s no secret that she’s also really, really pretty: it’s all in those gorgeous deep-set eyes. My
way too far away West Coast-dwelling coworker Winona (also gorgeous) has a really similar almond eye shape, so emulating Nicole’s makeup is a good look for her. She wanted to know how to get the star’s ubiquitous soft yet still defined eye, which she’s been wearing on Fashion Star and her other TV appearances as of late. This eye is different because, rather than harsh black, which can make eyes look smaller, it’s done in soft shades of brown with touches of shimmery gold. It’s beautiful and versatile, perfect for day, night, any time, anywhere. I’m breaking it down to the nitty gritty, after the jump! Keep reading »
I wasn’t really planning to watch “Fashion Star,” NBC’s new fashion design competition, but I just moved into a new apartment and turned on the TV to keep me company while I was unpacking boxes of books last night. “Fashion Star” happened to be on, and daaaaaaaaamn did I get sucked in. By the end of the hour, I was cheering and gasping and yelling “No deal!” even though that catchphrase has nothing to do with this show. After the jump, check out my list of the good, the bad, and the WTF of the “Fashion Star” premiere… Keep reading »
Nicole Richie, you’ve come a long way since your days spent galavanting around the country with BFF Paris Hilton on that horrible “Simple Life” show. We’re still not sure what to make of your return to primetime with “Fashion Star,” the reality TV fashion competition show that seems a little “Project Runway” with a dash of “The Fashion Show,” but lady, you sure do look good. This Julien Macdonald gown is the perfect shade for spring.
