Talking peacocks, Sparrow and boobs with Nicole Richie

We love a bit of celebrity fashion line at Grazia. Obviously there have been some shockers…naming no names…but we have a soft spot for them none the less. So when invited us to meet Nicole Richie for the launch of her new season of Winter Kate clothing and House of Harlow jewellery we couldn’t say no. Considering Nicole is the epitomy of LA style in her maxi dresses and pendants, her Winter Kate collection feels a lot more international than that. Peacock prints and floaty dresses aside, there was also a presence of black lace and edgier pieces that were more NY than LA. Nicole seemed delighted when we told her that too, and was keen to show us her favourite pair of black lace ankle boots.

Over dinner she tried to encourage games, but when faced with the cynical looks of the British fashion press, she realised it probably wasn’t the best idea! Dressed in a beaded maxi (naturally), with a studded black leather jacket over the top, she looked like the coolest teeny tiny little bird – all eyes and dark tresses. ‘I went dark after I had Sparrow, as my breasts were big, and the blonde hair and big boobs look in LA is so not my thing,’ Nicole explained over a plate of prawns. ‘I will go back to blonde in the winter, as I can’t wear black with dark hair at the moment as I look like a goth.’ With an early flight the next day back to her kids Harlow and Sparrow (who she admitted was named after Jack Sparrow from Pirates of the Caribbean (!)), Nicole headed back to her hotel, but not before her and her friends stepped into G.A.Y bar for a nose around. Hmm, not the chicest way to end an evening…
