Nicole Richie In Balmain & Mugler – Out In New York City

Nicole Richie In Balmain & Mugler - Out In New York City

After working a colourful look following her guest-host spot on ‘Live with Kelly and Michael’, it was back to classic black-and-white for Nicole Richie, who was spotted shopping at Curve in New York City yesterday afternoon.

The designer wore a Mugler white cropped blouse featuring a high-necked silhouette, with the button placket concealed by an asymmetrical panel to give the look a signature edge, which she wore with a pair of Balmain stretch-leather pants, an edgy take on the classic racer trousers featuring quilted ribbed panels, side-zipper pockets and silver-tone hardware.

Borrowed from the boys, Saint Laurent perforated two-tone derby flats completed her look.

While I wouldn’t consider this look my style, she sells it to me so hard I want every piece. Even the shoes.

      I agree. If it weren’t for those ridiculous proportions, same goes for the sleeves, I’d love this unconditionally. This way, I really only love the shoes. I like the approach to hair and make up though too.

        Right! Had she just gone simpler with the pants it would have worked for me. Love the hair and make up too. P.s. Rosie Huntington-Whiteley would kill those pants.

    I think she looks sloppy.

    i love this head to toe, i’m such a huge fan of Balmain in general, but pants even more, and we don’t see them as much as we should cauz they are amazing.
    And i like that she kept hair and make up simple, wich could’ve make her look like she is trying too hard

  12. TeaAtTwo August 9, 2013 at 23:00 #

    I don’t like crop tops really but this look is working for me head to toe.

  13. KatieKate August 9, 2013 at 23:48 #

    Incredibly chic, and I even think this look is elevated by her no-makeup, hair pulled back look.

  14. MEME August 10, 2013 at 12:45 #

    I love it, I wish she had worn heels though, it would probably even out the proportions in this outfit, but those flats work so well…

    thank you for posting those shoes. I saw photos of her wearing those on vacation in the Mediterranean and wanted to know where they came from. I adore them!

    I, too, think she pulls off this look. very Chic!!!
