Nicole Richie for Flare April 2012

Nicole Richie is for cover girl the April 2012 issue for Canadian fashion magazine Flare.

She dazzles wearing a Roberto Cavalli Spring 2012 ensemble which features a gold jacket, a matching skirt and a white top which she accessorizes with a ring from her House of Harlow 1960 line.

Inside she looks white hot wearing a Cushnie et Ochs jersey leotard and cotton skirt with an Alexis Bittar bangle.

She talks to the magazine exclusive about Hollywood role models, balancing work with family, and how her four-year-old daughter feels about her namesake line.

Here are some extracts from her interview:

On Hollywood role models: “I was just talking to a friend of mine who has two little girls about a certain singer whose name I won’t mention. He was really upset, saying she wasn’t a good role model for his kids. But here’s the thing: that girl is twentysomething, so she shouldn’t be a role model to your little girls. She’s human, and it’s unrealistic to put people on a pedestal and expect that they’re not going to make mistakes.”

On her own life in the spotlight: “I know that, being in the public eye, I have a responsibility to the people who have been supporting my dreams. But more than that, I know that I have a responsibility to my family.”

On balancing work with family: “I try to only work when the kids are in school, so I’ll come home when they’re out of school and then go back to work at night.”

On her daughter, Harlow’s, future in fashion: “She has no idea that she has two lines named after her—I try and let her be a kid.”

On being a morning person: “I wake up at 5:30 in the morning, every morning, so I can be alone. I don’t have anywhere to be, but mentally, I like to go downstairs and drink my coffee…I’m telling you, it changes my entire day.”

    The cover looks great but I don’t like the white dress. It looks strange at the bustline. She really has turned her life around I remember when she was a party girl.

      She really has. Too bad LiLo is still wandering into an oblivion.

    I love the turquoise cover. I would totally pick that up if I saw it at a store.

    The cover is cool–even though there’s a lot going it holds my interest without being too busy. The white dress is weird, though, and I don’t agree with her comment about the unnamed singer. Singers–and all those in entertainment–need to take their positions seriously and be role-models imo!

    She’s really changed.
