Nicole Richie attended the 40th annual FiFi Awards at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening.

The fashion designer wore an Emilio Pucci Spring 2012 dress.

Many of you have expressed your dislike for ‘mullet’ dresses, so how does this black long-sleeve embellished empire-waist dress with a train fair on Nicole?

The dress is so light and delicate that I would’ve preferred it if Nicole had worn less heavy shoes.

Nicole styled the look with a black House of Harlow clutch, MEUS Designs teardrop earrings and wore her hair up in a chic top-knot.

I love the dress, but I’m not crazy about Nicole’s styling of this look.
