Nicole Richie Turns the Big 3-0, See Her Style Evolution (PHOTOS)


Nicole Richie may have started out her reign as Paris Hilton's sidekick on the 2003 reality show The Simple Life, but this reality star quickly became a Hollywood mogul with her clothing line Winter Kate and jewelry collection House of Harlow 1960. The one-time party girl is now a full fledged business woman, mom and wife and she celebrates the big 3-0 today, Sept. 21. Happy birthday, Nicole! 

To celebrate her big day, click on the gallery above to see her amazing fashion evolution!

Growing up in LA, Nicole is the daughter to iconic soul singer Lionel Richie. While making her rise in the Hollywood scene alongside the Hilton sisters, Nicole unfortunately fell through some dangerous pitfalls. The hard partying Simple Life star battled the constant media scrutiny on her weight and even had a DUI back in 2006.

Nicole quickly rebounded and found herself in love with her now husband Good Charlotte lead singer Joel Madden. The two welcomed their daughter Harlow Winter Kate Richie-Madden in 2008 and son Sparrow James Midnight Richie-Madden in 2009.

Between balancing motherhood and two fashion lines, Nicole has also published a book The Truth About Diamonds in 2005 and she's had several guest spots in TV shows such as Chuck and 8 Simple Rules.

Nicole will make a return to reality TV in NBC's Fashion Star. The fashionista will be a mentor alongside fellow reality alum turned designer Jessica Simpson and menswear designer John Varvatos.

    Gucci sent their fall/winter 2012/2013 collection down the Milan Fashion Week runway today and it featured a much darker, more gothic and vampire-like color palette than what was shown by the iconic design house for fall 2011. One year ago Gucci Outlet showed bright colors and blocked them together, helping to explode the current color blocking trend. For fall 2012, Gucci moved away from the trend they started and let black rule the runway.
