Nicole Richie Doesn’t Dress the Men In Her Life

Nicole Richie has enough on her plate, between Fashion Star, her clothing lines and looking perpetually chic. So when it comes to dressing the guys in her family — well, they’re on their own.

“I do not dress [husband] Joel [Madden]. Joel dresses himself,” the show mentor, 31, tells Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan on Friday’s Live With Kelly and Michael. “And he dresses [3½-year-old son] Sparrow.”

Then she corrects herself: “Sparrow’s actually dressing himself now but he’s very particular,” she explains.

“So he needs the bandana tied around the belt, you know how Joel does it … he has to have all of his sleeves cut off of his shirts. He’s got a little curly mohawk now!”

As far as streamlining her own style, Richie — also mom to daughter Harlow, 5 — says she spends a little more on everyday items in her wardrobe, like jeans and t-shirts, then adds inexpensive extras.

“I feel like if you get really great basics, then you really can just accessorize them with different things and make different outfits.”

Fashion Star premieres Friday at 8 p.m. on NBC.

For a big Fashionista as she thinks she is, she looks horrible. Bad make-up. She looks more like she is in her 40’s.

Jordyn on

Is she really only 31? Because she has wrinkles like she’s in her 50’s…

Angela on

I’m really happy for her. Looks like she finally has the life she’s wanted. Good for her.

Shawna on

Wow, she’s only 31? I would have guessed 41. I am 33 and I look MUCH younger than her!

Ash on

That’s a really rude comment Shawna. I hope it made you feel better about yourself.

sarah on

i would have guess 99.

Has she had too much plastic surgery? Is she ill? I’m not trying to be funny, it looks like something is desperately wrong with her in this picture.

Maria on

She is not aging well at all.

You need to get over yourself! You may be 31 but your reply is very self-centered and immature. She in no way looks 10 years older than she is. She is a very beautiful woman.

Sandy on

good for you Shawna- thanks for sharing that- YAWN!

Missy on

She’s not aging well at all.

I think this is just a very unflattering photo of her.

I for one am proud of her. She has matured so much and she has a beautiful famly. I think she is very beautiful, inside and out.

Drug use and anorexia in the past can make someone look older than they really are. Regardless, she’s a very beautiful woman.
