Nicole Richie In Alberta Ferretti – ‘Nicole’ Fragrance Launch

Nicole Richie greeted fans at Macy’s Glendale Galleria in California yesterday evening for the launch of her debut fragrance ‘Nicole’.

The designer was inspired by the “different oils and lotions” her mother mixed together when she was a child.

She said, “It’s very much a reflection of my individual style – a spiritual balance of femininity and bohemian. It’s the notion that fashion can be easy, comfortable and offer juxtaposition between casual and luxury.”

Her individual style was very much on display as Nicole wore an Alberta Ferretti cream V-neck and tiered texture frock with a cinched waist, which she styled with House of Harlow 1960 snake cuffs, skull end cuff and an engraved pattern skull stack ring plus brown Brian Atwood shoes with an asymmetrical gold zipper.

From the ankles up, the look is soft and feminine, but south of her ankles, I’m left confused.

    Those shoes are hideous…

    I love the shoes, but NOT with the dress–which is kind of flimsy anyway.

    The shoes are Brian Atwood (Twist) and though I think they are sharp on their own merits, they do not belong with that frock.

    They didn’t have the shoes in her size? I don’t get it.

    The dress is fine but I’m more concerned about where the real Nicole is being hidden. This one bears no resemblance to the one who came unto the scene in the early 2000s.

    Shoes aren’t working here.

    The dress is a bit blah…the shoes are a bit edgy but too big and not right for the dress. I love love love her hair color though!

    God I hate that ankle tatoo… So cheesy.

    • Vera August 30, 2012 at 22:36 #

      +1 The tattoo is uglier than those shoes. Actually, I don’t think the shoes are ugly, but they don’t go with that dress.

    The shoes don’t go with the dress, and the dress could’ve been just a tad longer – it looks a bit young for her.

    Oh just what we need, another celebrity perfume. When will this trend just be over??

    • Noemi August 30, 2012 at 20:24 #

      My thought exactly! And let me say that the bottle and the box are quite ugly. Honestly I would keep the shoes, which I like even if I don’t know how she could walk with them since they’re at least one size bigger, and change the dress which is nothing special.

    Ankle boots? Just … WHY?

    • Moxie August 30, 2012 at 21:00 #

      Those aren’t boots, but they aren’t right for this dress. Too heavy looking.
