Few still consider Nicole Richie an ex-reality star. Her notoriety, instead, comes from being a doting mother, an unexpected fashion icon and most recently, an exacting fashion executive.

“This has been in my head for a very long time,” she tells Ocean Drive on being the creative force behind an empire of fashion brands. “With Winter Kate, we started out so small,” she explains. “It’s taken me four seasons even to expand into doing leathers, laser cuts, furs.”

And for Richie, the next step parallels her very first: once again infiltrating your living room. “Ultimately, this will be a lifestyle brand,” she says. “I’m going to do home furnishings and flatware, everything.”
