InStyle: Did Nicole Richie’s New Fragrance Inspire Her Purple Hair?


Nicole Richie has been getting busy in the beauty world lately — in late February, the star posted an Instagram that was altered to look as if she dyed her hair purple, only to make the dramatic change in real life a few days later. We’ve seen Richie sport blunt bangs, the long bob, and a wide variety of updos, but her pastel violet hair is the most dramatic change she’s made yet, and the coordinating color of her NO Rules fragrance has us wondering: Did her new scent bring on the change? Possibly! The exotic blend of Mediterranean orange flower, purple jasmine, Turkish almond blossom, and vanilla bean is housed in a frosted lavender bottle, and was inspired by Richie’s carefree attitude to fashion — a philosophy mirrored with her outlook on hair, we’re sure. “I try not to go by any rules, especially when I’m talking about mixing prints,” she says. “I’m so inspired by the ’60s and ’70s, and their rule was that there were no rules.” Whatever sparked the idea, we definitely applaud the star’s bold move, and we’re glad to see her purple reign continue in both the hair and fragrance realms. Find NO Rules in department stores nationwide this month for $45.


Nicole Richie’s Second Fragrance “NO RULES” Out in March!

According to Nicole’s Twitter and Facebook pages for her fragrance, her second fragrance “No Rules” is out now. What a lovely surprise! reveals “No Rules by Nicole Richie will be available in March for $45 at retailers nationwide”, and the Nicole Richie Fragrances Facebook says “The newest fragrance […] is out now.”

A bohemian, addictive fragrance with exotic notes of sun-kissed elderberry, sweet Turkish almond blossom and juicy kumquat.

I personally cannot find this fragrance available for purchase anywhere at this moment in time, but I’m sure it will be out later this month.

Dear Heat Magazine and Star Magazine: Shut the Fuck Up

Gossip magazines felt the need to comment on the weight of Nicole Richie and her lifestyle and publish an estimated weight guess because they are assholes. Please never buy these magazines.

Nicole Joins Chinese Microblogging Website ‘WEIBO’

Nicole Richie has recently joined a Chinese microblogging website called Weibo (which is Chinese for the word Microblog). The website is akin to a hybrid of Twitter and Facebook and is one of the most popular websites in China.

Nicole Richie Is Anorexic Again According To Jerks

Perfect article from written by Joanna Rafael regarding Star Magazine’s recent cover and claims on Nicole Richie’s weight.

Oh no, someone call the body police, Nicole Richie is apparently 88 pounds (so specific) again and living off of “sunflower seeds, celery, and juices” while staving off hunger by smacking bubblegum. Actually, someone did call the body police–The Daily Mail and Star are already snarking on her ass.

This is not the first time armchair physicians and psychologists have accused Paris Hilton’s ex BFF of anorexia. She dropped a lot of weight years ago and photos of her in a bikini were used as suspect evidence to prove she was physically and mentally unwell. I vaguely remember in an attempt to fight off/laugh off these eating disorder rumors, Richie and her fellow It Girl also under the body police microscope, Lindsay Lohan, staged a paparazzi opportunity so that they could be photographed eating cake. Richie even poignantly responded to the anorexia rumors of old. Four years ago, she told Marie Claire:

I felt it was a little unfair to say someone has an eating disorder when they don’t. It’s extremely insulting and irresponsible. An eating disorder is serious and it’s a disease.

And she was right. It is unfair, insulting and irresponsible.

In the years since those mid-oughts days of anorexia chatter, Richie’s body had changed and she was no longer under scrutiny for being “too skinny.” No longer! She’s lost weight again and apparently her body is up for public examination. Star Magazine’s recent cover is a photo of Nicole Richie in shorts with the words “Tragic Relapse: Anorexic Again.” As far as I know, the tabloid is not a doctor treating Richie.

Though Star Magazine made that outlandish and rude diagnosis that Nicole Richie is “anorexic again” an alleged friend of Lionel Richie’s daughter told my favorite rag that Star’s claim “is completely false, she is not anorexic.” One point to The Daily Mail for publishing apparent insider info negating disgusting allegations against Richie, but minus a million for the body snarking subsequent to their touch of kindness.

Here are some gleaming examples of their skewering thoughts on her body:

“There is no arguing she has lost a lot of weight since she looked healthy – and sexy – in a black bikini just over two years ago.”

So sad, because she once looked “sexy” and now she’s too skinny too be sexy. I’m being sarcastic. She’s sexy regardless of her body fat. Stop shaming skinny women.

“In late October when she stepped out in a black dress with a plunging neckline to the Who What Wear 50 Style Stars event in West Hollywood, her chest appeared bony and her arms were very slender.

In mid November she displayed some very protruding shoulders bones while at Balthazar and Rosetta Getty’s home in Los Angeles.”

So, they’ve been creepily keeping track of her bones. Gross.

“Her waist line looked tiny and her jaw line was extremely defined. When she walked onstage…her hip bones even stuck out.”

More with the bones business.

“At an Art Basel party in Miami, the cover girl looked almost skeletal next to Kim Kardashian.”

The phrase “almost skeletal” seems a little funny coming from the people who are using pictures of Nicole Richie as diagrams of the human skeleton as they sing that head bone’s connected to the neck bone song.

It’s all absurd and totally fucked up. Nicole Richie is a big star with a famous husband and some kids. Just because she’s a celebrity and being photographed all the time does not make it okay to use images from public events or paparazzi photos in this manner. Counting her bones, claiming she’s afflicted with a very serious disorder, and comparing her current body to her past body are sociopathically uncool maneuvers. If she actually is sick, these accusations are really deplorable and dangerous; however, if she is not actually sick, they’re still tasteless and symptomatic of our culture’s obsession with keeping the female body in check.
