Nicole Richie is known as known for her boho-chic style as she is for Hollywood pedigree — and with fans like Madonna wearing her House of Harlow 1960 jewelry collection, her design career couldn’t be hotter. Pregnant with her second child (daughter Harlow Winter is 19 months old), the star has signed on to create (and model) a line of maternity clothes with her signature flair for A Pea in the Pod. Richie talked to PEOPLE exclusively about the new line, explaining that the collaboration works because “Pea in the Pod is such a known company for pregnant women. They carry great lines, and so when they asked me to create a line for them, I was really excited and eager to do it.” And being pregnant herself means that Nicole is especially considerate of her customers. “You really feel like you have to change your whole wardrobe. And that’s the last thing a woman wants to go through. So I really tried to make this line to get women excited about wearing clothes.” And while Nicole admits she doesn’t always wear maternity clothes, she definitely thinks the pregnant form should be flaunted! “I think the pregnant body is beautiful, and I think you should show it off,” citing her jean cutoffs as a go-to this pregnancy. As for what to expect in the line, think peasant tops, layering tees, flowing maxidress and braided details. Nicole may have a few months left until she has her second child, but she says of her newest design collection making its debut, “It feels great to see everything come to life. It’s the best feeling in the world to have your visions and dreams coming together. I’m so excited for people to see them. I just hope that people like it.” We give it our thumbs up! “Nicole”, an exclusive collection for A Pea in the Pod stores on Friday, with prices ranging from $48 for tank tops to $148 to maxidresses.

They’re not too bad looking, I guess, but if I was pregnant, I wouldn’t wear them…

Classy, modern and hip! I just had a baby and when I was pregnant, I felt fashionable. I do not like the big fat maternity style that our mothers would wear. Love this line!!!!

bren on

She has turned from a downward spiral to coming into her own! BRAVO!

bre on

Lovely, motherhood suits her!

I like the first dress, but not the other two. But you have to give props to Nicole Richie;; she’s gotten so much classier that I hope most people judge whether they’d buy the line on price and fashion statement, not the person who made and modeled it.

Probably the best pics I’ve ever seen of Nicole Richie. I agree, motherhood was the best thing to happen to her.

Jennifer on

A little pricey for the average pregnant woman. But I like the style!

Give your children the greatest gift…make them legitamite. Does alot for their self-esteem and feelings of worth.

Kris on

Love her – she’s really stepped up over the past few years – it’s too bad more young Hollywood girls don’t follow her lead.
