Nicole Richie In Mathieu Mirano – 2012 ALMA Awards

Nicole Richie opted to shine the spotlight on an emerging designer when she hit the red carpet at the 2012 ALMA Awards held in LA yesterday evening.

Seemingly unfazed by a possible wardrobe malfunction, the designer wore a dramatic Mathieu Mirano Fall 2012 gown.

Her gown features a silk skirt with a sheer bodice decorated with black-and-gold leather paillettes.

I love that Nicole offset the dramatic nature of the gown with smoky, kohl-rimmed eyes and a slicked-back hairdo.

A Nicole Richie look wouldn’t be complete without some accessories from her House of Harlow line.

    She looks good! Better than the model.

    I think the eye makeup is too heavy. She looks like she has raccoon eyes and the dress is just OK.

    Nicole Richie has become a fashion icon. Her style is most definitely unique, and her own. Gee, whatever happened to Paris?

    Oh, no. I love the dress and her hair, but her makeup makes me think of a raccoon :(

      I agree.

    For me, this is the first BDOTW contender. I often find her gowns look like they should be on someone taller, but I love absolutely everything about this look.

    Umm… no. Just no. There’s nothing I like here at all.

    This is way too harsh (!!) bordering on fake and costumey, she makes this already tricky ott gown look like a halloween costume with that makeup, should’ve toned it down instead with a softer makeup. The boobage is also distracting. Thumbs down from me.

    This is the most beautiful dress i’ve seen in a long time. She looks amazing. Bravo!

    I don’t know exactly why, but I love it. Even the heavy eye makeup, looking closer, is exquisite.

    The makeup is not a good look.

    I really dislike this look–the dress is hideous in my eyes, even more so on Nicole than the model. Her raccoon makeup and stiff hair aren’t helping.
