Nicole Richie celebrated the debut of her maternity line, “Nicole” for A Pea in the Pod, by bumping baby bellies with other pregnant moms in Beverly Hills Thursday night at A Pea in the Pod. “It is completely unreal to have a vision and have it come to life five months later,” she told PEOPLE. “I’m so blessed, I’m so lucky.” Joined by Judy Reyes, Tisha Campbell-Martin, Nicole Sullivan, Jamie Bergman and Gena Lee Nolin, Richie, who is pregnant with her second child with Joel Madden, modeled an outfit from her line — with a twist. “This is a tank from my line but I got it in a bigger size so I can wear it as a dress,” she said of her black tank. “I try to wear whatever is comfortable and whatever fits!” Richie added that she’s been having fun rotating the items from her line into her wardrobe. “I’ve been making an effort to change my clothes a lot and rotate through the pieces,” she says. Her favorite? “I really love the paisley dress, I’m a huge fan of prints and I love the color scheme.” Though she’s in her third trimester, Richie says she has no plans to slow down her fashion enterprises any time soon. “I have my second collection of House of Harlow 1960 [jewelry] coming out in November, and my regular clothing line coming out in Spring 2010 along with my shoe line.” She admits that’s worth the effort, though. “I’ve been working extremely hard,” she says. “It’s amazing.” — Lisa Ingrassia

Ooh la la! I love that outfit she is wearing. Most people find that a boy who likes a girls outfit is weird, but I’m just simply commenting on how the outfit fits her body type. And is that the necklace that Madonna was “wearing” on her new single cover? It looks like it, but it also looks like it was being swayed to the side and turning with the sway so I can’t tell. Love that outfit NicRich. Ooh! I made a nickname for her who likes that nickname? I do. :P

I love her outfit! She has a great and really unique sense of style. I especially love the shawl/jacket thing shes wearing. Id wear that without being pregnant!

BTW are guys allowed to write things on this site cuz i don’t see a lot doing it even though i do. love the outfit NicRich. That’s my nickname for her. Who likes it? ANSWER THE QUESTION!

I too love her. I think she has wonderful style and has really improved her image, since she is not really hanging out with Paris. She seems to have her head on straight, and has great fasion sence.
