The thing about Nicole Richie is you never know what is she going to look like. Granted, we always trust girl will look fly (ie she'll never go back to Simple Life velour), but we love getting surprised by her latest chameleon turn. Case in point at Richie's celebration to kick off New York Fashion Week at Bergdorf Goodman, where the starlet rocked a Veronica Lake-ish aesthetic coupled with her signature House of Harlow jewels. There's nothing like the Kelly Wearstler designed BG restaurant to steady our NYFW jitters, and the sartorially candy on offer had us revising our weekend wardrobe. The calmness didn't quite extend to Richie, where a phalanx of photogs tried to capture her every move. Thankfully, we were able to grab a few seconds with the jewelry designer—check back, we'll be putting up her words of wisdom later today.
Click through and tell is what do you think of Richie's look, plus feast your eyes on the rest of the guests!
