For her hosting duties at the Teen Vogue Fashion University event in NYC, Nicole Richie wore one of her Winter Kate designs: this black velvet kimono dress ($405). For accessories, the designer sported black Christian Louboutin pumps and a couple long House of Harlow necklaces: this hammered diamond necklace ($113, originally $125) and this multi-horn necklace ($130). If you've been on the hunt for the perfect little black dress for Fall, consider adding Nicole's exact dress to your mix. The fabric is plush, while the kimono cut gives it a unique spin.
Nicole Richie was spotted exiting Andy LeCompte Salon in West Hollywood wearing a black-and-yellow ensemble, proving that the color duo is quite the fashionable match — and no longer screams bumblebee. She started with a sheer, printed yellow Winter Kate tee, which she matched up with black statement pieces: denim Current/Elliott shorts, a wide-brim felt hat, this Givenchy's Nightingale Satchel ($2,105), and Vanessa Bruno suede ankle booties with a chunky rubber heel ($448, originally $597). Next time you hit up your hair salon, mimic Nicole's Summer look by pairing a yellow tee with black shorts, a black hat, and booties, and don't forget the celebrity-favorite Givenchy bag to complete your luxe style.
While meeting up with friends for lunch in LA, Nicole Richie showed off her effortless Summer style in a black silk Winter Kate dress — here is the maxi version ($289). We love the subtle, lingerielike lace-trim detail up top and how the longer hemline balanced out the sexy factor. Nicole then completed her all-black look with exaggerated cat-eye sunglasses, her go-to Balenciaga bag, and tan strappy flat sandals. Next time you're having lunch with your girls, sport Nicole's exact dress or this similar but shorter Marc Jacobs lace-trimmed satin mini ($209, originally $695). To add a pop of color, ditch the tan sandals for something bright.
Celebs are frequently spotted in leather jackets and leather pants, but we particularly love how these six celebs freshened the trend by working leather tops into their wardrobe. Nicole Richie recently doubled up on leather by pairing a laser-cut Winter Kate top with matching Helmut Lang pants, while Minka Kelly roughed up her floral Dolce & Gabbana denim via a cropped leather J Brand top. Leather tops — real or faux — are quickly becoming a staple in every A-lister's closet, and they should be in yours too, so shop our picks to find the style that best suits you.
Fall may seem like a far-off cry from the season in bloom, but we couldn't help but take a peek (and lust over) Nicole Richie's latest Winter Kate and House of Harlow autumnal wares. With Richie's signature brand of bohemian-luxe style ever present, we were delighted to note an edgier (read: rich jewel tones, plush velvet textures, and slick lasercut details) vibe in place. The collection is chock-full of '60s-inspired pieces — sheer herringbone blouses, wide-leg pants, and a plethora of oversize round sunglasses to start — that evoke a structured, geometric retro feel (hello Mad Men!) more than ever. Come chillier temps, we can't wait to rock an eclectic House of Harlow bone-wrap cuff with one of Winter Kate's vintage-looking pencil dresses. To tide us all over, we've pulled our top three looks below, then make sure to check out the rest of the Fall '12 looks in the slideshow.
- Winter whites are a cold-weather staple, and to prove our point, we'll be wearing this ultrasheer white maxi dress with a quirkier set of accessories.
- It's all about the Swinging Sixties for Fall '12, and what better way to capture the essence of that stylish era than with a distinct geometric print.
- Update your floral obsession with an antiqued rose-print sheath — it's ladylike, sophisticated, and will look great against a luxe faux fur coat.
Nicole Richie took some time off her Fashion Star duties for a fun family beach day in Malibu with Joel Madden and their two children, Harlow and Sparrow. Nicole delivered another one of her signature boho-chic outfits, pairing a breezy orange top from her own line Winter Kate with denim cutoffs and strappy sandals. She gave her look an eclectic gypsy feel with a patterned Simone Camille fabric carry-all and polished off her California cool style with a braided updo that's perfect for the beach. See Nicole's bohemian ensemble in today's Fab Flash! On Allison McNamara: A.L.C. peplum top.
