Celebrity Style. Nicole Richie Tries To Capture Her Fashion Fame…And Fails!

May 13, 2008 • Celebrity Style

We used to love Nicole Richie‘s wardrobe. Funky, yet simple with a touch of class–she (or her stylist, go figure) knew exactly how to put an outfit together. But since the birth of baby Harlow, Nicole’s passion for fashion has gone astray and considerably downhill. Take note:


Though we love her attempt, there’s waaaaaaaaaaaaaay too much going on here.  Elizabeth and James dress, Tom Ford fedora, vintage leather Gucci boots, gray tights…Nice try Nicole, but no no no!


What I used to notice about Nicole was that she always wore simple bright solid colors–yellow shirtdresses with black tights, elegant black and white pencil skirt and button down combinations, and occasionally the graphic print mini. But ever since (yes we have to say it again!) the birth of baby Harlow, her style has gone all over the place. Nowhere is this more evident then with this multicolor airplane-print Chanel sundress–beautiful on some but on Nicole with her bug-eyed frames, yellow Balenciaga bag and black Christian Louboutin heels, its just a little too over the top and a little too ‘try too hard’.


This outfit would seem OK—if it wasn’t so blah. I mean, couldn’t Nicole have done up her hair just a little? Where are the blunt bangs? Where are the tousled curls? It looks like she rolled out of bed and forgot to do her hair. It’s limp and the roots are noticeable. Other then that, the outfit is ok except its just a white dress with a black leather jacket and peeptoes. Blah, blah, blah. The one bright spot? That cute, graphic print clutch. I’d love to find out who designed it? Anybody? Anybody?
