Nicole Richie In Julien Macdonald – 2011 MOCA Gala

Nicole Richie attended the 2011 MOCA Gala, which was held on Saturday night in LA.

The designer donned her second gown by a British designer in a row, this time opting for a Julien Macdonald Fall 2011 gown.

Her mauve high-neck gown with gorgeous leaf embroidery is yet another bold look which the petite star manages to pull off.

The semi-sheer gown was paired with a House of Harlow ‘Olivia’ python clutch and silver Chopard jewels.

A face-framing updo, dramatic eye makeup and pale pink lips completed the look.

I love the dress from the front; Nicole totally owns it.

The back I’m not so crazy about, because it’s designed to look like she’s exposing her bra strap, which she isn’t.

    This looks like a hard dress to wear even on the model. I actually really like the color of this dress but the design lends itself to bunching as we can see and that is never a nice look. Very untidy looking.

    I think she looks lovely. I’ll give the back of the dress a pass because she looks so great from the front. It’s so nice to see her experimenting with fashion.

    Not flattering, it chops her up and makes her look shorter than she is, in addition to giving her a weird figure!

    Aside from the orange tan she looks pretty fantastic here.

    I love the dress on her, but what ruins it is the very first thought that came to my head when I saw the thumbnail:

    “Is it me or is she orange?”

    the hair is too messy with the complexity of the dress….plus, I just don’t like it on her.

    I don’t really care for this dress on her. It looks messy and it overwhelms her petite frame.

      i agree. She is so petite, most of the time the dresses don’t shine on her as they are designed for taller women. She has to find a style that accentuates her tiny frame.
      To be honest i don’t get the entire midriff of this dress. It already looks messy on the runway.

    Trust Julian MacDonald to make a dress to make a girl look like she’s showing her bra strap.

    I usually love Nicole’s look, but this looks messy to me.There’s just too much going on with that dress.

      Also, if you add the heavy bangs and all the make-up, it feels like she just has too much stuff on her.

    • Parvati November 14, 2011 at 15:18 #

      I agree (except for the “usually loving Nicole’s look” part :P). There is so much going on with this dress and the heavy bangs.

    • Emi November 14, 2011 at 16:34 #

      I agree with you, I also don’t like the fit.

    • Sea November 14, 2011 at 22:13 #

      +1! i hate it head to toe. she looks like a huge mess.

    For 2 seconds I thought she was J. Lo! I do love this dress, but the back is a disaster on Nicole.
    Adore the hair and makeup choices.
