It doesn’t take a lot of Googling to see where Nicole Richie has been, fashion-wise, in the last decade. We’ve seen her body and her style change, and finally — we’ve seen her grow into a graceful adult and mother. We just saw how beautiful Lauren Conrad looked in her feature in this month’s Glamour, and now it appears it’s Nicole Richie’s turn, as shots from her upcoming spread were released today.
A far cry from The Simple Life and flashing audiences on Betsey Johnson runways, Nicole (now 30) looks chic, poised, and gorgeous. We’re not sure whether this shoot is totally photo-shop free (as Glamour promised earlier this year), but it doesn’t appear that Nicole would have anything to hide in the first place. The mother of two, Harlow and Sparrow, has recently launched her own fashion line on QVC, works as a design mentor on NBC’s Fashion Star, and says she likes to keep it simple:
I feel great about my body. You know, aesthetically I can be picky, but I choose not to. I’ve taken huge leaps. I’m proud of that. I work out, and I get lots of sleep, and so I feel great. And that is most important.
It’s great to see a star who has managed to come out on the other side of fame, balanced and happy. Her spread will be featured in the June issue of Glamour, out May 8. [source] Take a look at the other snips from the issue, and some shots of Nicoles notorious past, and tell us:
What do you think of Nicole’s very public ascent into adulthood?
