Nicole in New York this week.
Sometimes a starlet has a moment. It seems that every outfit she wears are dissected and picked over by bloggers around the world. She’s constantly photographed looking amazing from red carpet to grocery runs. Often, it leads to some kind of line. Something with a mint at the end or at a department store. We just can’t get enough. 
And then, one day, without any warning, the tide turns. 
Her outfits are boring, the line is over priced, everyone starts wearing her signature look, she’s likable but she’s not “It”. 
The Internet moves on. 
I think we can all agree that this describes Nicole Richie pretty well.
She lost all that weight in 2005 and became a national style obsession.
Then it seemed like she was just over it and so were we.
But Nicole made a triumphant return to form in Paris last week. 
She stunned front row at Givenchy, Stella McCartney and Valentino and roamed the streets with her humorously over sized sunglasses perched atop her bobble head. Casually, she’s still a little boho but at events she fused a new found sophistication with her signature cool girl for a new Nicole style.

It’s almost enough to get me to actually watch her show Fashion Star which premiered last night.

  1. Lol at “atop her bobble head!” Kara your writeups are so spot on 🙂
    She almost looks a tad bit Brittany Murphy-esque in the last two shots am I right!?

    i wish jessica simpson wasnt on that fashion show as i would watch, i do like nicole richie. Love that red Valentino.

  3. I've never been over her. I just loved that she got her act together and 'reformed' into a chic, ladylike fashionista. I always hope to see more from her!
