Nicole talks about her new line for Macy’s

ELLE: What inspired the Macy’s Impulse line?
Nicole Richie: While I was working on Fashion Star with the designers, who were presenting collections to the buyers each week, I really got the opportunity to understand the buyers’ points of view—especially Macy’s. When we decided to do this partnership, I was just off the heels of Fashion Star, and I really had my ears open that entire time, just taking in all of the information that I possibly could.

ELLE: How did you apply what you learned from Fashion Star to your designs?
NR: I just focused a little bit more on the Macy’s girl, who aims towards that eclectic, fun, version of fashion. She loves mixing and matching. So I did a play on that in a few different ways by mixing masculine and feminine, such as a top with faux leather and chiffon, which is one of my favorites. Or I did dresses with the same prints with different color ways to give it a multidimensional feel. Macy’s is the iconic American retailer; and I feel that today more than ever, American woman are so multidimensional. They’re wearing so many different hats, so this is kind of my nod to them: designing pieces that represent all different sides to the American woman.

Joel interrupts Nicole during Real Housewives

The Belfast Telegraph posted a small article, mainly regarding Nicole’s rapping skills, and I thought I’d share this quote with you because I found it funny. If you’re interesting, you can read the full article here.

“You know, Joel barely speaks all day, and then out of nowhere he has nine million things to say, only for 30 minutes, from 9pm to 9.30pm, when I’m watching Real Housewives,” she quipped.
