Nicole Richie In Roberto Cavalli - 2013 Vanity Fair Party Like Natalie Portman and Diane Kruger, Nicole Richie worked black-and-white to her advantage, when she attended the 2013 Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscars party, hosted on Sunday night in West Hollywood.

The starlet and designer took the plunge in a Roberto Cavalli gown.

I have to say it is nice to see a Cavalli number on the red carpet that isn’t peppered with paillettes, sparkly studs and over-the-top panache.

This minimalistic little number was just sexy enough to be dangerous, with that V-neck and those black racing stripes than ran across the shoulder and down the side.

Nicole accessorized with a demure necklace and a brilliant candy-apple-red House of Harlow 1960 ‘Marley’ clutch.

Her long, wavy bob and a nude lippie completed this mod look.
