Nicole Richie: Bad Influence on Behavior, Good Influence on Style

Sep 21 2014 - 5:00am

Nicole Richie [1]'s never shy for words, and we couldn't be more thankful that she has a platform to express each and every last one of them on Candidly Nicole [2]. After all, we've loved her style and willingness to experiment with her look (hair included [3]) for some time now, but it wasn't until we caught an episode of her "journey to adulthood" (her words, not ours) that we remembered where our love affair began: The Simple Life. Ahh, the good old days, when Nicole was slinging bleach on pool tables and rocking a trucker hat. She's come a long way from her road-trip adventures, but age has done nothing to tame her tongue:

Hey, there's a reason why they call it Candidly Nicole. Sometimes controversial, always entertaining, and never, ever filtered, it offers a lot to learn from the "entrepreneur, philanthropist, writer, actress, mother, and, most importantly, fashion innovator," (once again, her words), and we've gathered our favorite — and most WTF — lessons, from today's birthday girl here.
