Red Carpet Fashion 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.

Nicole Richie dared to bare at the 9th Annual Style Awards at the Lincoln Center in New York City last night.

Opting for an all black ensemble she wore a super short, skin-shunning Anthony Vaccarello dress from the designer’s Spring 2012 collection, the reality-TV-star-turned-fashion-designer could’ve tipped the balance into trashy.

The sleek fringe and accessories, however, save the day. The strappy Costume National shoes match the spirit of the dress, while the understated clutch by Edie Parker and earrings by Nicole’s own label – House of Harlow – enhance rather than detract from the dress.

Nicole Richie greeted fans at Macy’s Glendale Galleria in California yesterday evening for the launch of her debut fragrance ‘Nicole’.

The designer was inspired by the “different oils and lotions” her mother mixed together when she was a child.

She said, “It’s very much a reflection of my individual style – a spiritual balance of femininity and bohemian. It’s the notion that fashion can be easy, comfortable and offer juxtaposition between casual and luxury.”

Her individual style was very much on display as Nicole wore an Alberta Ferretti cream V-neck and tiered texture frock with a cinched waist, which she styled with House of Harlow 1960 snake cuffs, skull end cuff and an engraved pattern skull stack ring plus brown Brian Atwood shoes with an asymmetrical gold zipper.

From the ankles up, the look is soft and feminine, but south of her ankles, I’m left confused.

Nicole Richie was in West Hollywood on Friday night where she attended Virgin America’s 5th Annual Sunset Strip Music Festival.

The fashion designer and TV personality looked ready to rock out in an edgy black ensemble.

Donning a laser-cut black leather skirt from her own line, Winter Kate, Nicole chose a black Mugler shirt with a chic cut-out back.

I love how the intricate details on the back of her shirt match the skirt’s similar design.

An orange Chanel clutch, Jimmy Choo ‘Sepia’ platforms and House of Harlow jewelry, including skull earrings, are interesting accessories for the otherwise all-black ensemble.

Smokey eyes and gently tousled hair complete the look.

Last month, Nicole Richie and Macy’s celebrated her Fall 2012 Limited Edition Collection, ‘Nicole Richie for Impulse Only at Macy’s’ at Restaurant Daniel in New York City.

Two images from the ’70s-influenced collection have finally been revealed today.

The ’70s continues to be Nicole’s constant source of inspiration for her own personal style and her House of Harlow line.

With prices ranging from $49–$149, the lux bohemian ‘Nicole Richie for Impulse’ collection will be full of day-to-night pieces including maxi dresses, asymmetrical skirts, cropped tops and fitted jackets on a colour palette of rich jewel tones with gold and imperial-blue hues creating pops of colour throughout.

As a lover of prints, I was delighted to learn that retro prints will take centre stage in this collection. I already have the printed shirt Nicole has on above on my want list.

Hopefully we will be able to see more of this fashion-forward collection infused with bohemian glamour before it hits Macy’s stores and online on September 12.

Nicole Richie attended the 40th annual FiFi Awards at Alice Tully Hall, Lincoln Center in New York City yesterday evening.

The fashion designer wore an Emilio Pucci Spring 2012 dress.

Many of you have expressed your dislike for ‘mullet’ dresses, so how does this black long-sleeve embellished empire-waist dress with a train fair on Nicole?

The dress is so light and delicate that I would’ve preferred it if Nicole had worn less heavy shoes.

Nicole styled the look with a black House of Harlow clutch, MEUS Designs teardrop earrings and wore her hair up in a chic top-knot.

I love the dress, but I’m not crazy about Nicole’s styling of this look.
