Fame10 Fashion Evolution: Nicole Richie
57th Annual Emmy Awards TV Guide and Inside TV After Party – 2005
Nicole Richie looked like a whole new woman at the 57th Annual Emmy Awards TV Guide and Inside TV After Party. She rocked this white and gold dress with gold earrings, gold strappy heels and a gold clutch. At this point, the reality TV star was a bona fide fashionista thanks to Rachel Zoe. “Nicole is now what people refer to as the big thing that happened,” Zoe told The New York Times in 2007. “Everything went from nowhere to everywhere. Nicole was about creating a look. Because of her fashion sense, which was really my fashion sense, she became famous. It was a huge moment: Nicole became a style icon without being a star.”
In 2005, Richie was also a bona fide star as well. “The Simple Life” was incredibly popular and, even though she and Hilton had fallen out, people were still obsessed with her. Everyone wanted to know what she was wearing and who she was hanging out with. Now that is star power!
Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Issue Party – 2006
The reality TV star wore a really cute green dress to the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Issue Party. It was short, patterned with long sleeves. She accessorized with a pair of cognac, open-toed pumps and a big black clutch. Something tells us that Rachel Zoe was the genius behind this look! She was all about the bohemian look and it just happened to really suit her clients, like Richie, Lindsay Lohan and Mischa Barton.
At the Teen Vogue Young Hollywood Party, Richie was reportedly with her boyfriend at the time, Brody Jenner. Paris Hilton showed up with her sister Nicky and her on-again, off again boyfriend Stavros Niarchos. Richie and Hilton were able to avoid each other on the red carpet by arriving at different times. Hilton showed up much later than her former friend. We think that it is probably safe to assume that Richie was the better dressed of the two.
