GIULIANA VS. NICOLE

GIULIANA VS. NICOLE

The stars basically give this white Saint Laurent mini the same treatment (spray-tanned legs, light-colored shoes), which leaves us wondering if Giuliana should consider getting bangs.

Last year, the star went from purple to midnight blue, but has since lightened up her locks with a brand-new bright pink hue. During the same salon visit, she also switched up her style, losing some length and adding some bangs, for a flirty (but yes, pink) bob.

The style star, who has parlayed her hippie chic flair into multiple fashion lines, including Winter Kate clothing and House of Harlow 1960 accessories, hit the big leagues at this year's Met Gala when model Britt Maren wore a Winter Kate gown down the haute red carpet. With handbags now a part of her accessories range, Nicole's signature boho style is soon to be on arms everywhere.

Richie and Jenner went from childhood pals (her dad Lionel Richie, a longtime friend of his parents, was there when he was born) to grown-up sweethearts in August 2006. And the Simple Life star got his mom's seal of approval. "I think they're very cute," Linda Thompson said. "Will they get married? Who knows." Uh, we do. The couple split that October, though Richie posted a message to her MySpace – MySpace! We were ever so young? – insisting "we were never really together … my heart was never in it."

During her time at the Festival, Richie spoke to women about House of Harlow 1960, and did a little personal shopping for them in two styling sessions. "I spoke to them about what influences me when I get dressed, what influences them," she says. "I saw a lot of women really take risks, get really crazy with their accessories and their personal style to stand on their own."

ON THE MOVE

Richie takes in the city sights on her way to her House of Harlow 1960 pop-up shop. "I was surprised at how forward they are there, and how much the women really love fashion," she says. "It's a different culture there, they have a different idea of style. A lot of them are covered, and I thought it was really cool to see these women put their own take on what that means, and on what style means to them."

Taking five at the Burj Al Arab – a 7-star hotel – Richie and her possé give us a peek at their sweet shoes. "We didn't stay there but we had dinner one night – everything in that hotel is something to see," she shares. "I would say that's kind of the overall theme of Dubai."

Two reasons we love Nicole's Vera Wang gown at the Footwear News Achievement Awards in N.Y.C.: It complements her deep teal tresses and the print reminds us of an enchanted forrest. (But it would be nice if we could actually see her footwear!)

She was just another rich reality starlet when she appeared alongside childhood pal Paris Hilton on the hit FOX series The Simple Life, which attracted 13 million viewers in 2003. But after a falling out with Hilton, the show was canceled; when it was picked up by E!, the duo chose to film separately. Soon she was facing more heat, this time for her drastic weight loss and a DUI.
The comeback: The star began focusing on family life with beau (now husband) Joel Madden and their children Harlow and Sparrow. She also put her energy into designing, launching several successful fashion labels bearing her name.

It's never just basic black for Nicole! She accents this super-low-backed dress (check out those cutouts!) with an emerald green necklace and cuffs (both her own design, of course) for the launch of her House of Harlow Fall 2014 jewelry line in NYC.

In case you were unclear on Nicole's signature gown style, she reminds you at the Met Ball by picking a frame-hugging Donna Karan Atelier design with barely-there straps and a rear view that shows a whole lotta skin.

Fashion fact: Florals are huge right now. So of course the style risk-taker is going all out via a bloom-printed Givenchy topper. Paired with J Brand leather pants, sexy pumps and purple hair, she proves you can make a pretty pattern totally edgy. (And no, we don't expect you to swipe the purple hair part.)
