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.
It’s finally here: Halloweekend 2011. And though many choose to witty, creative or innovative with their costumes (like building a fully-functioning digital camera costume), most choose to simply…wear less. And as fellow college girls, we’re okay with that, but Nicole Richie isn’t.
“Girls, can we all pledge that we will not dress slutty for this Halloween?” she posted on her Facebook page earlier this week. “The jig is up!” Read more…
Major network television has finally jumped on the fashion competition bandwagon; this fall, NBC will launch “Fashion Star,” a competition show aimed at finding the next big brand. Featuring the requisite model host — Elle Macpherson — “Fashion Star” employs celebrity mentors to help foster along brands. Just this week, Nicole Richie and menswear designer John Varvatos signed on, joining mega-bazillionaire mogul Jessica Simpson as mentors on the show. So, if you had your way, who would you have mentor you? [THR] Keep reading »
Proving that she’ll take her very successful House of Harlow 1960 brand as far as demand will allow, Nicole Richie has added a collection of handbags to her fashion and accessories brand. The handbag line, which includes everything from crocodile clutches to large leather bags, has the bohemian vibe Nicole is known for. The concept behind the collection was to contrast luxury with casual, using young calf hair and relaxed vintage leathers. But skins aren’t the only focus–great attention was also paid to the hardware. Gold and black studs adorn the larger bags, and jaguar heads close clutches. The line is slated to arrive in stores mid-July, and seems to have something for every woman, a goal Nicole said she had in mind while designing. Prices will range from $150 to $625.

Girls, you are wearing a thong on your hair. And no, Nicole Richie and Vanessa Hudgens, I don’t care that it’s a fancy rhinestone-encrusted thong. A thong is a thong is a thong–isn’t that what Marcel Duchamp said? Or was it Sisqo? Whatever. I understand that we are all trying to find new ways to wear jewelry and spend our hard-earned Disney cash, but come on … a head thong is not the way to go. You look like you lost interest halfway into putting a necklace on. And okay, fine, maybe you did. [MTV Style] Keep reading »
“Do you ever look at your credit card bill & ask your wife how the hell she could spend three thousand dollars on pillows? I do. I mean can’t we just go to Target and get our pillows??? … Needless to say the pillows are going back to the expensive a** pillow store. I was thinking they must be made from unicorn manes.”
—Rocker Joel Madden took to Twitter when he discovered how much wife Nicole Richie, who is in Paris for Fashion Week, spent on pillows. Nicole’s response? “That’s why I ignore your calls.” Ahh, when domestic squabbles make their way onto the interwebs. [People] Keep reading »
“I can take his credit card and buy anything with it without anyone questioning me about it. That’s definitely one thing I’m loving.”
—Nicole Richie talks about the perks of finally marrying her baby daddy, Joel Madden. Strange, since you’d think her own card’s credit limit would allow for some pretty serious shopping sprees. After the jump, Nicole talks about taking Joel’s last name. Keep reading »
Nicole Richie and Joel Madden tied the knot this weekend, two kiddos and four years later. The two got hitched at Lionel Richie’s estate, and Nicole wore a strapless Marchesa get-up. While there’s no word on whether any dancing on the ceiling went down during the reception, there is one very curious element to the ceremony—apparently, a trained elephant was led into the proceedings. Which is interesting, because when Katy Perry and Russell Brand got married in October, their procession included two elephants.

Christina Aguilera might have filed for a divorce from Jordan Bratman in October, but I guess she’s not ready to open up about her love life. On Saturday, she went on a double date at the SoHo House in Hollywood with her engaged friends Nicole Richie and Joel Madden. When they left, Christina had her date duck in the back seat and she threw a blanket over him, trying to hide his identity. Fortunately, it was ineffective and we know it was Matthew D. Rutler, who was a set assistant on her upcoming movie “Burlesque.” Nice try, Xtina! [PopEater]
She’s not the only celeb who did something wacky to avoid being caught out on a date. Catch up with the others after the jump! Keep reading »
Last December, Nicole Richie played into the dumb blond stereotype by saying she felt smarter as a brunette. So now that she’s gone back to having blond hair, has her brain cell tally gone down? [NYC, 9/29/10] Keep reading »
