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.

How about giving your kids a good lesson, don’t judge others….

I love this line of clothing, by the way.

I am so proud for her! She has done a wonderful job with her first and will be even better with her second. I’m proud she has turned her life around, so many people can not do that. I pray blessings to her family!

elizabeth on

did someone seriously just tell her to make her kids “legitimate”?!?!
are you kidding me?
i’m horrified

Kelli on

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

lol, marriage won’t improve a childs self-esteem or self worth.
Nice try tho!

They will get married if THEY want to, not bc you want them too.

I love Nicole since she has cleaned herself up, she’s absolutely adorable… and the maternity clothes are super cute, I totally would have worn them during my pregnancy… but $48-$148…. babies are way to expensive to be spending $48 on a tank top! Not all parents are born into the Hollywood trustfund accounts

Kathy: Her relationship status is between her and God… you have no business bringing it up.. As Christians we are to pray for those that are living in sin… not flaunt their sins for everyone to judge! If more people looked at the sin in their own life they wouldn’t be so quick to judge others…….

Not my style and I don’t really care for it. Plus you would have to be super skinny like her to pull it off.
