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.
