In a city as devoted to the new and now as Hollywood, it’s entirely possible to blink and miss out on a trend. But for Nicole Richie, a designer who boasts both Winter Kate clothing and House of Harlow 1960 accessories lines, it’s a look to the past that gives her the greatest inspiration. “I really believe that you can’t make a mistake with vintage,” she tells Lucky in its February issue, where she also fesses up to owning 30 vintage Chanel purses. “It’s all in how you wear it.” It’s no surprise then, that the ever-stylish mother of two pulls a lot of her easy looks from the ’60s and ’70s, in the form of antique brooches and silky kimono jackets–perfect accents to her signature daytime uniform of Jet by John Eshaya skinny jeans and Urban Outfitters T-shirts. From The Simple Life reality star to designer-author-philanthropist, the 29-year-old is no stranger to change and evolution – and that ethos easily extends to her wardrobe. “To me, fashion is about fun,” Richie says. “I’ve always experimented. I dyed my hair purple, and I dyed my hair green, and I went through a Punky Brewster phase, a preppy phase, a goth phase, a girly phase, a grunge phase… I”m sure my style won’t stop here.” We have a feeling whatever Nicole’s next chameleon-like move is, it will undoubtedly be a fashionable one.
