Nicole Richie In Jean Paul Gaultier – Nordstrom Gala

Nicole Richie In Jean Paul Gaultier - Nordstrom Gala

Nicole Richie hosted the Nordstrom Gala to celebrate the grand opening of Nordstrom Glendale Americana in California yesterday evening.

If you are lucky enough to still be experiencing great weather, you may not be in the mood to appreciate this rich, baroque floral print which brings an edge of art and romance to this Jean Paul Gaultier turtleneck dress.

With her hair pulled back into a tight bun, the dress does a great job of elongating the petite star, so I was slightly baffled to discover she had opted for Christian Louboutin
‘Zazou’ animal-print lace-up flats.

Representing her House of Harlow line, she styled her maxi dress with her black ‘Jude’ chain-fringed clutch and a gold necklace.

A matte orange-red lip colour complemented her dress, as did her copper eye shadow.

I have a feeling this won’t be loved by everyone. My only dislike are the flats. The contrasting print was an interesting choice, but my preference would’ve been heels.

    She looks great ! I don’t mind the flat shoes, but I don’t like the print.

    The shoes are horrendous (more the print than the flatness of them though). The rest isn’t my style AT ALL, but she pulls it off.

    I adore this look, shoes included. She is on my BDOTW list.

    Love the dress, the print and the hair, but THE SHOES, are a no no.

    I was in awe until I scrolled down and spotted the shoes!! They’re completely wrong with the dress but that’s still not enough to ruin the overall look for me. She looks fantastic (as always)!!

    Too much is going on. The Shoes are terrible.

    Ankles up, it’s remarkably pleasing to me. I wouldn’t have expected myself to like it but I am in a colder clime and this just looks high-fashion but cozy! The clutch is cool too. However, the shoes are all wrong.

    As the rest, the shoes bothers me, but I did not notice them until I studied really well this look, she looks gorgeous! We do not get to see JPG everyday being worn in the red carpet, and only a few people can pull off his looks, so I am really glad Nicole has done it.

    I like the dress and her hair and makeup. The accessories are uniformly bad in my opinion. The necklace isn’t needed, the clutch is overkill and the shoes are just dreadful.

    The autumny print is enchanting, and I like the long silhouette the dress creates on her. The length is slightly awkward and those awful animal print shoes stick out like a sore thumb. I’m fine with the long necklace, I think it enhances the look, the 2nd shorter necklace is unnecessary, not a fan of the distracting fringed clutch, but she completely killed the look with the shoes for me.

    Nicole looks amazing!

    She looks so beautiful that I’ll give her a pass on the shoes.

      I was thinking the same thing, but I don’t think I can. Unfortunately, the shoes just ruin an otherwise unexpected but chic look.

    omggg I adore this dress, I must buy it!!!! I adore her styling, hair is up, matte orange lipstick BUT and sadly this but cannot be ignored…what made her think to put those cheetah shoes with this print???? The dress is enough of a statement, for once I would have been happy with boring black shoes!!!
