Nicole Richie Is Just as Funny as She Is Stylish

Oct 29 2014 - 8:11am

It's not exactly news that Nicole Richie [1] has come a long way from her trucker hat-rockin' days on The Simple Life. We've been turning to her for style (and hair [2]) inspiration for a while now, and we're not the only ones: the Footwear News Achievement Awards has just crowned this fashionable, funny lady Style Influence of the Year [3].

And while the title couldn't be more deserved, we also feel her personality should get some sort of shout out, too. Because while she's come a long way from her road-trip adventures with Paris Hilton [4], age and career success has done nothing to tame this ex-wild-child's tongue:

There's a reason why her show is called Candidly Nicole [5]. We love how unfiltered and off-the-cuff this "entrepreneur, philanthropist, writer, actress, mother, and, most importantly, fashion innovator" (her words, not ours) can be on the VH1 series, so we've rounded up our favorite — and most WTF — lessons we've learned from Nicole here:
