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?

In Response…

Well personally I look more black than I do white.. I am 50% white 15%Cherokee Indian and 35% African American. Technically I’m more Caucasian than I am black, but according to Americas standards of classifying people on appearance.. I am considered Black. If you look like your black, then your black to the eye’s of the nation. Many a time I have documented differently on paper that I am byracial on forms that I have had to document my race…but if I go on an interview for a job they assume I’m black. So I guess due to the fact that history has proven in our culture that if you look slightly ethnic you might as well be completly that race… Does’nt matter if it’s fair or not thats our society. I cant speak for Obama or Halley but for myself it’s always been a challenge to place myself amongst a society that needs to classify me as one thing or the other. Hopefully you understand an if you dont thats fine.. others rarely do..their not in our shoes. (sorry for punctuation and spelling error’s OOP’s!!)

I can’t believe that a simple hair question burst out into a racial conversational piece…….. You people are absolutely ridiculous and the REASON OUR WORLD IS THE WAY IT IS TODAY!!!!!
On to the ACTUAL TOPIC: She looks cute, the bob does her good. And she’s looking ALOT healthier these days – Could it be her newfound love???

Nicole is BACK!!! She looks healthier, and her hair shows off her ah-dorable face! YAAAYYYY!

Terra- I completely agree with you. People are way too sensitive about ethnicity and race these days. If it’s so unimportant, why make such a big deal out of it? Jeez.
