Nicole Richie was recently interviewed by Marie Claire, which means we’ve been gifted with a fantastic new photoshoot taken by Nicole Nodland! Talking with Allie Jones, Nicole opened up about her passion for environmentalism and shedding her reality TV image.
Though she is perhaps most recognizable for that legendary five-season run in the mid-aughts, Richie does not consider herself a reality star.
“I’ve never done traditional reality,” she says, taking a sip of Trader Joe’s decaffeinated green tea from the reusable mug she brought with her to the rink. “Even Simple Life, it was a 28-day or 30-day trip. And it was me leaving L.A. and living in someone else’s life. I’ve never opened the doors to my own [life].”
And she never would. “No, no,” she says emphatically when I ask.

Nicole Richie is on the cover of the spring issue of The Zoe Report. Nicole was styled by Jamie Mizrahi with hair by Gregory Russell and make-up by Vincent Oquendo. The photos were shot by Thomas Whiteside. Nicole gave a full interview where she talked about her rapping alter ego Nikki Fre$h, the healing power of crystals and her upcoming TV projects.
Richie seems to genuinely agree that undergoing the process of becoming a fully sentient adult in the pages of Us Weekly was good for her. “Some of the most horrible things I’ve done have come out in the world,” she says. “As terrible as that has been at times, it’s also kind of given me this freedom to grow and change. It’s not like I came out and was like, ‘Hello, my name is Nicole Richie and I have everything figured out.’ But the essence of who I am is really the same. In my heart, I am someone who would try things.”

Nicole Richie is launching a new line called ‘Wylde Honey’ for NowWith Network by Yahoo Lifestyle. It’s named after her childhood nickname “Honey Child” and her personal hobby of beekeeping and honey-making. It includes 40 pieces, all under $100, featuring silk pillowcases, eye masks, robes, pajamas, scarves, headbands, face creams, essential oils and gold costume jewelry.
The ‘Honey Wylde’ collection is exclusive to the interactive e-commerce platform, NowWith, appearing in shoppable videos from on November 15th. Speaking with WWD, Nicole said “This is a way to speak to my customer and through these videos, almost create my own store, so it really does feel like me instead of giving something to another retailer and letting it hang in their space.
I’m creating the backdrop, the music, the lighting, the tone. I see clothes on the runway, but not every woman has that for when they are buying a piece of clothing or jewelry so this is our way to give them a real story so they can value where they are spending their money also and see it in the designer’s vision.”

16/11 UPDATE: The name of the line has been changed to ‘Honey Minx’.
