Nicole Richie: Joel Just Noticed I Have Bangs

We’ve already made it pretty clear that we find Nicole Richie both hilarious and stylish, but at the Tuesday launch party for her new AOL series #CandidlyNicole, she once again showed why she’s worthy of our valuable TV-watching time.

When asked if her husband Joel Madden ever weighs in on her style, Richie laughed. “No!” she told PEOPLE. “He just noticed I had bangs. He noticed those a year ago and we’ve been together for seven years. I’m still waiting for everything from the neck down. He just noticed my bangs.”

As it turns out, this is actually bangs phase II. The first time around, she was going through a rebellious phase, which is now filed under her most cringeworthy style moments.

“My parents didn’t want me to have bangs,” she said — adding that she cut them anyway. “Then, after realizing I had curly hair — because I was too young to realize I’d actually have to blow dry my bangs — I had curly bangs for a year. That was fun.”

And though you’ll see the high-fashion side of the star in her AOL series, at home, she can’t get out of her designer duds fast enough. “When I’m home I do not wear regular clothes. All I wear is sweats. Everything comes off, the shoes, jeans, the jewelry,” she said. “I do not wear clothes in my house.”

Significant others not noticing our haircuts? Living in sweatpants? We knew we had a lot in common with Richie.

Tell us: Does your guy pay attention to your style?

This is a celebrity gossip website, not a news website. I clicked on this to read it not because I thought it was “news-worthy,” but because I thought it would be interesting. And then I enjoyed it.

auntie – I have to agree with Julie. People is a celebrity gossip website. If you are looking for news, then head over to MSNBC, or CNN, or Foxnews, or ABC, etc. If you are looking for celebrity gossip, click on People. Or if you are not interested in the celebrity, then just dont click on the particular story. It’s really quite easy to read the stories you are interested in and to ignore the ones you are not.

I clicked on this story because I happen to find Nicole Richie entertaining (she is very funny).

I find it refreshing Nicole has grown up so much.

So, Nicole Richie is a ‘normal’ mom – or am I? Or are we both? I don’t have ‘designer duds’ but when I go out anywhere, first thing I do is get the clothes and all else off and get into my sweats. (or jeans and a T) I never wear ‘clothes’ at home either. Sweats = comfy and comfy = home. A mom like the rest of us who loves simple as she is beautiful, as she is a beautiful young woman! God bless Nicole and her family. It’s refreshing to see just how far she’s come from “rebel” days.
And to auntie or anyone asking where the “news” is? WHY are you at Stylenews looking for depressing news? Heck, that’s everywhere! But if you want to bathe yourself in it, that’s your choice! I’ll bet Nicole, like me, would prefer a bubble bath than to bathe in bad news every hour of our lives! Folks like that need to get a hobby when they ask on a post ABOUT Nicole, “why is Nicole Ritchie newsworthy?” Sad life some must have! Love ya Nicole, and your beautiful little family! Still cracking up about her bangs! Leave it to a man to not notice such a beautiful change though seems that he loves her SO much that it just doesn’t matter, and that’s a GOOD thing!

@auntie; Do you know the difference between “news” and “gossip”? Why would you come on a “gossip” site and expect to find “news”?
Truthfully I’m assuming you are just a troll trying to stir up comments and agitate people. You have succeeded. Now find another story to troll.

That might just be the best photo of Nicole I’ve ever seen. She looks beautiful.

She is so beautiful now. I just love the way she has turned her life around and is so wonderfully grounded. And I love that her husband doesn’t notice or care about the small stuff…but just loves her for who she is not how she looks or dressses. Sounds like this is a good marriage.

Love on

hahaha! This story reminds me of the time that i got my nose pierced, and my husband told me he spent 3 weeks, trying to figure out what was different about me. I didn’t want to tell him about my new piercing, cos i wanted to wait for his response. I found it hilarious, cos he’d look at my face curiously, and you could just tell he was trying to figure it out LOL. I actually counted down the days until he’d notice (it was actually 22 days.) He figured it out at 2 in the morning. He woke me up and said, ‘You pierced your nose.’ LOLOL!
