Dressed in a flowing floral maxi dress, Nicole Richie stepped out of the car as she arrived at the Eco-Mom Party, held Thursday night at a private residence in Los Angeles, Calif.

Currently expecting her second child, Nicole attended the event with partner Joel Madden, whom she recently described as “the best dad” to Glamour UK.

“When you’re parents you have to make every decision together, so you become a team. I can wholeheartedly say that he’s the best dad I have ever seen. He’s as good as my dad [singer Lionel Richie]. Him and my dad are really close. Joel is superdad.”

Nicole looks beautiful as always. I like how she keeps her style simple.

I’m always fascinated to see how many different kinds of events/parties celebrities go to, stuff that I would never even expect there to be a party about (for instance; Jennifer Garner going to a party for Baby Mozart, and Tori Spelling going to an event about Pull-ups). I’m just imagining the really weird invitations celebrities must get. I guess it must feel normal to them, but I can’t imagine saying something like, “Look honey, I just got invited to the launch of a new line of Pull-ups.”

Aw… So cute… I was totally not a fan of Nicole Richie until she became pregnant and I had my doubts but she has turned into such a wonderful women! Her love for Harlow is so clear and obviously she enjoys motherhood so much that she is having another child! idk, this dress makes her look bigger than she probobly is but i’d say she is due in mid august. Any guesses? I really hope her and Joel stay together regardless that she said she is unsure if she wants to marry him i think they are a cute couple and make a family and be together in the long run!

rose: it’s funny that you mention that…i was just talking to someone about how hard it must be to feign excitement in interviews about certain things…i mean, a person may be really glad there’s a new line of pull-ups, but how many questions can you really answer on the red carpet about diapers?

in other thoughts-i think it’s funny/weird that she’s at an ECO-mom event surrounded by giant super-suv vehicles. maybe they’re all hybrids?

She looks so much better with this pregnancy, compared to how malnourished she looked at the beginnings of her last pregnancy. I’m so happy she has turned her life around.

Nicole is beautiful but that dress is not! Looks as if it was made out of curtains!

I’m with you babyboopie. Love Nicole. She is beautiful (her family also). However, this dress is not. Would love to see her do something more stylish and classic with her hair and stop wearing these oversized dresses.

I love that dress! Love florals. Nicole looks really healthy. You go, girl!!

I’ll tell you why it isn’t hard to fake excitement about diapers: $$$! I am not a good actress but for the cash these moms are given to promote products I would be madly in love withe every baby product out there.

I really never liked Nicole especially after she lost all that weight and looked like all she eats were three raisins per day. But now I notice myself looking forward more and more to pics of her (and Harlow). I think she’s actually one of my favorite mums. And I can’t wait for all her pregnancy pictures and I’m so looking forward to the new baby.
