Nicole Richie in Helmut Lang - The Today Show

Nicole Richie, who has also returned from Paris Fashion Week front row duty, was spotted out in New York City yesterday en route to the ‘Today’ show to promote the new season of ‘Fashion Star’.

Does her look qualify her as a fashion star? There is a lot going on here so let’s start from the top.

She wore a Helmut Lang Mongolian-fur jacket slung over her shoulders, which were bare as her Stella McCartney ‘Columbia’ fringe blouse was sleeveless.

J Brand’s ‘Super Skinny’ black leather pants gave her cool look a rock n’ roll edge, as did her House of Harlow circular sunglasses.

The rest of her accessories included snakeskin pumps and a tri-colour Fendi tote.

Take away the fringed top and we have a great look. With such a heavy, textural coat, the top feels a bit fussy.
