You Asked, We Found: Nicole Richie's Little Black Dress

04/23/2007 at 01:00 PM ET

Can you please find out where Nicole Richie’s fabulous dress is from? She looked so great coming out of the salon with Joel Madden in last Thursday’s Star Tracks!- Car

Accompanied by boyfriend, Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden, the Simple Life star made a fashion statement just leaving her hair salon wearing an adorable little silk black day dress. Nicole’s Madison Marcus “Zest” Tunic is perfect for running errands on a hot L.A. day, or layered over jeans or leggings for those of us who are shyer about our legs. Nicole’s dress is available to the rest of us for $219 at in black, red, and blue. If you splurge on the dress, try these white dark lensed sunglasses, $5, at to complete Nicole’s casual look.

Fabulous? This could only be fabulous if it were a nighty. She looks ridiculously naked. As a matter of fact… are those her underwear?

GLO on

YAY! You found the dress! GO CAR!

Summy on

That is WAY to short. I can’t stand skirts or dresses that when you sit down your not even sitting on any fabric. That is nasty!!! Oh but wait, that’s not even a dress, it is a TUNIC. Put some pants on Nicole!

AnnieM on

It could be a tad shorter, but lovin’ it nonetheless.

jennifer in tulsa on

I believe those are indeed her underwear…white? ha! I would be embarrassed to where something like that….She is dressed like a HOOCH!

Lis on

I was thinking the same thing Edot are those her underwear? I guess we should be happy she wears them unlike Britney Spears.

k on

hhmm i do not like this…nor do i like anything nicole wears…she is soo trashy…yuck!…this girls a disaster…

L on

You people are prudes. She doesn’t live in Wisconsin… she lives in LA, minis are in, and she looks hot!

Elda on

i would wear a dress like that but w/shorts on.

dee168 on

She’s actually wearing cut-off denim shots underneath.

j on

fyi: minis are in in wisconsin as well. just as there are prudes everywhere, too. open your mind. people were just stating the obvious here: she looks a little on the trashy side b/c she’s wearing a tunic as a DRESS.

L on

Wouldn’t “open your mind” also apply to the usage of a tunic as a dress?

ucokaty on

there is a difference between being a prude and having modesty and self respect……

Amy B on

she’s hot – your all not…
jealous a little?

PS she is wearing shorts…other pics posted of her in this outfit you can see her jean shorts.

dawn on

I have to agree with ucokaty. Lets stop condoning piss poor behavior.

coco on

maybe its my opinion but joels a better site than the dress anywayz

Mary on

I think Amy is right. You can barely see the shorts underneath her TUNIC, which would explain why at first glance she looked so scandalous (and it looks like got fooled too).

Btw, it’s “you’re”, not “your”, Amy.

Alli on

whatever some of you guys think… sorry hon, but this is WAY to short (even if she IS wearing shorts with it!!! if we can’t see them… how short are the shorts?). she looks like she’s trying to hard by “trying” to prove that she’s not too skinny by “trying” to be ultra sexy. ill admit her legs look great, but the dress (or “tunic”) isn’t workin’ sweetie. sorry

alice on

While I’m not crazy about this shirt(yes people, she is wearing shorts) I also don’t think she looks trashy or scandalous. People in LA can get away with wearing beach type clothing anywhere, its not such a big deal.

lizz on

very pretty as a tunic, i think the angle of the picture is just not showing the cutoff’s i would buy it but it is just a bit on the pricy range for me.

alia on

OMG!!!! J! YOU ARE SO ANNOYING!! Is insulting random celebrities that you have never met a norm in Wisconsin or wherever you’re from?!? I’m saying it again and i’ll keep saying it until your ignorant brain comprehends it : Quit taking you’re own problems out on random celebrities!! They don’t even care what you say anyway!

alia on

Whatever “j”… i guess you’re entitled to your own opinion

Katie on

Is it me or is one thigh fatter than the other?

Terra on

Forget the dress….. All I can think about is how much healthier Nicole looks…….

Beth on

I really love that shirt! It would look great with a pair of PANTS!! ;-P

Really, a hot pair of jeans with that shirt would be a great outfit. But there’s no way I could shell out $219 for that!!! I found a shirt like it – ‘Theodora Dress’ at for only $34.80!!!

KT from Cda on

Just a little too short for my liking! Its hard to tell how short it really is. It looks like it was a windy day and she is walking. If she was standing still then we’d be able to tell how short it is. Amy B: It has nothing to do with be envious it’s all about morals. Does anybody like to looks like a street walker on purpose???

Julie on

Okay – here’s what’s weird about this picture. Benji or whatever his name is – is all bundled up with a jacket and long pants!! How come Nicole is wearing a little summer dress? Odd.

A on

Not too crazy about the shirt/dress, but her legs are looking better since she’s put on some weight. Yay!

rashundra. on

Are all you people Neanderthals? She’s wearing shorts underneath the dress because she lives in LA where there’s the BEACH! so yeah, I wouldnt wear sweatpants either. & one thigh is bigger than the other because she’s WALKING, idiots.

Meghan on

Hideous!! Everything about this girl is a mess!! She’s not nearly cute enough to pull off this look. She should be embarrassed!

jennifer on

them dresses r so ugly i hate them they look like shirts put a nice tight pair of jeans on and then the shirt o i mean dress lol then it might look half way decent.

R from Canada on


Cool dude on

Why don’t you just walk around naked if your gonna dress like that!!! But you do have the body 4 it.

Sam_I_Am on

I’d hardly think of her attire as fab.
Personally, revealing has never been my favrite statement.
(Too much Nicole, not enough dress)

alia on

“R from Canada” is awsome!!

Michelle on

She just emerged from a salon?

Ok, that statement begs the question…what did she have done? It certainly wasn’t her HAIR!!!!!!!!

Perhaps it was a much needed bikini waxing so she could wear that “dress”.

Robbie on

hey i think thats a hot dress-like stuff Nicole has on and seems like she wearing a hot jeans under……….so haters hate the clothing line and let the gal do her thang………..

damien on

while i really think that hillary duff looked great in those seven outfits in 24 hrs cause like i say”its the best thing to do wen you come out of a relationship look your best and thats what Hillary did so your exshould be looking at these photos and sayig why did we ever break up and hillaryyour brand new album Dignity rocks girl i love hat song With Love you really are making the best comebacks of all time………with love your stranger fan damien strydom

G on

Nicole looks okay but my eyes are all over Joel! They are both great..especially the one and only Joel..=)

O and the dress would really go good with some nice pair of skinny jeans!

Yuni on

Nicole.. I always like the way you dress.. it’s suitable on you..but I think you need put on weight a bit but not to much..

mya on

hey…she sucks…simple as that…
p.s. the guy is a looser,he looked better with Hillary,but what can i say?….:(

C on

Nicole looks great here no matter what people say! At least she is putting on some meat. Give her a break! Tunics are supposed to be worn as either a dress or shirt, it depends on how comfortable you are. GO NICOLE!!!

camille on

oh my god! that dress is horrible..she is naked! that’s weird cause nicole doesn’t choose ugly dresses :\

lia-faith on

not lovin the outfit.
but she does look healthier.[yay]
what is she famous for anyways??
famous for being famous..??

v_sweet on

what the heck is that she needs to put pants on yo and really believe those are her underwear maybe she’s wearing that becuz she wants Hilary to be jealous cuz her new boyfriend is joel madden???

Kaitlyn C. on

I’ve seen other pictures of Nicole in this tunic and she’s wearing shorts with it. As for the tunic itself, I’m not crazy about the top, because it pulls your “girls” down and makes them look saggy or hanging. I think only how a woman could get away wearing this is if you’re not too top heavy. Other than that, I like the tunic and I would definitely pair it with a cute pair of shorts.

sarah on

i think she looks cute but i hate her because i like hilary more

gaga on

no that’s not her under wear thouse are shorts,

maricel on

In fairness,she looks healthier now than before,her legs were awesome,fabulous girl! don’t mind those sceptics!

R from L.A. on

nicole looks great! only fashion people who have taste would love it. only nerd would hate it.
