Nicole Richie's New Do: Love it or Hate it?

04/16/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

Even though Nicole Richie’s tried every hair color — blonde to red to brunette — we’d gotten used to her long, caramel colored locks recently. But when she stepped out on the red carpet for the Race to Erase MS Gala in L.A. on Saturday night, the Simple Life star had a much lighter, sleeker shoulder-length cut with heavy bangs. We think the paler blonde sets off her skin tone beautifully, and the bob suits her petite frame. But we want to know what you think! Tell us: Do you love Nicole’s new do? Or should she go back to her old look?

The short hair is sophisticated and sexy! She looks great and looks like she is putting on weight. I love the new look!

Who Cares how Nicole Richie wears her hair?, People should keep the spotlight more on Matthew McConaughey, someone worth checking out.

I like her hair longer & brown.

Nicole Richie is adopted by Lionel, but is still half black. Aside from the weave (which she rocks btw)Her blackness is obvious. I guess we just know our own.

I absolutely LOVE Nic’s short hair. It is so adorable on her. The long hair just starts looking ratty.

Either works for me! She’s a cutie.

Beautiful cut & color. Can anyone answer a question for me, though? Does anyone know if she was adopted by Lionel Richie? I’ve heard that before, but I’m not sure. It has no bearing on anything, I’m just curious. She is a beautiful girl, no question about that!!! :-)

Guess I should have read all comments before asking my question!! Ethnicity has absolutely nothing to do with this in my book!! I just wondered if she was adopted, so if I offended anyone for asking, please forgive me.

I like the long hair better, but it looks good both ways. As for her race, she had one white parent and the other was half black and half hispanic (her real parents). So she is one of those lucky people that can experiment with her looks and look still look good. Besides, who even cares?

I don’t get it. Every photo of her on people showed her with short hair. She hasn’t had long hair in so long. So this question about her hair is just silly.
