During the launch of House of Harlow x Revolve, Pret-a-Reporter chatted with Nicole Richie about her warm-weather style, her go-to cocktail and why she won’t be returning to her admired purple hair colour anytime soon.
Pret-a-Reporter: What’s your favorite go-to piece from the collection for summer?
Richie: I’m living in the slip dresses currently. I got my samples about three weeks ago, and I just have not taken them off. The weather is warm enough here that that’s kind of what I’ve been living in. That and the bodysuits.
How would you style each of those?
The bodysuit I would throw on with a pair of [Levi’s] 501s and sandals, and the slip dress — just as is. Just put some coconut oil in your hair in a little slicked-back bun and some sandals and call it a day.
What’s the song of the summer?
I don’t listen to current music. … Right now — it’s not a summer song — but I love “Love on the Brain,” that Rihanna song. It’s not very summery; it’s actually kind of dark. (Laughs.)
What’s your summer cocktail?
Rosé with ice.
What’s your summer hair color?
I’m trying not to color my hair all summer and just let the sun do its thing. [I’m not] doing anything with my hair, actually. I’m trying to just let it be. I have naturally curly hair, so it’ll be interesting.
Which TV show are you binge-watching this summer?
I just started watching Downton Abbey and watched one season in like a week. So I’ll probably continue on.
Where’s your summer hangout?
My house. My girls come over all the time. We hang out, sit outside, swim, hang out with my kids, listen to good music.

MAYA WRAP SKIRT
Pretty much everything in this pattern is amazing! To me it seems like the perfect mix of spring and summer, with the pale blue providing a much cooler vibe. However, this skirt stands out in particuar. I adore how its styled; a wrap with a tie at the back and the gap at the bottom which helps to show off your knees!
Available for £72.08.
This ivory jumper is made from rib knit fabric and looks incredibly cosy!
Available for £113.49
LEAH SHEER INSET CAMI
House of Harlow 1960 has always carried some cute camis! On the Leah cami, I love the ruffle trim and how it falls so nicely to fit the shape of the model’s body. It also has adjustable shoulder straps to give it that personal touch.
AVailable for £85.12.
LAINE LACE DETAIL CAMI
Much like the other cami, I love the delicate design which dresses it up a bit! It carries the same adjustable shoulder straps for a personalised fitting, but has a lace trim.
Available for £92.21
NORA LACE DETAIL ROMPER
This blush coloured romper looks really cute and is designed to adjust to your body: adjustable shoulder straps and a drawstring waist. It also includes a beautiful and delicate lace trim around the top of bottom. Also comes in black.
Available for £112.07

For Father’s Day this year (June 19), HuffPost and Facebook invite you to record your own parent-child interview live in a beautiful Facebook Live studio booth in New York’s Madison Square Park or at home! Nicole Richie conducted an interview with her father Lionel.
Click here to watch their interview.
It all started at a Prince concert.
That’s how the story goes for Lionel Richie and his daughter, Nicole Richie, who interviewed each other for the latest episode of The Huffington Post’s series Talk To Me. The legendary singer talked to his daughter about his roots in Tuskegee, Alabama, and his musical influences. He also opened up about how a Prince concert led him to an important “discovery.”
“The discovery was not the show for Prince,” Lionel said. “The discovery was: there’s a 2-year-old on stage with Prince playing a tambourine.”
That little tambourine player was Nicole, whom Lionel met backstage after the show. The singer, who knew Nicole’s biological parents, realized later that Nicole’s “family situation was falling apart” and wanted to help.
“I think we decided that … what we’ll do to kind of give you some stability was we’ll be like legal guardians, but nothing more,” he said.
That eventually led to Lionel and his then-wife, Brenda Harvey Richie, adopting Nicole. At this point, the “All Night Long” singer was at one of the heights of his career and explained to Nicole that while work required him to be gone for weeks and sometimes months at a time, he would always come back.
“I remember you had abandonment issues for obvious reasons. You’d been handed around to every relative in the family,” he said. “I remember what I said to you. I said, ‘I’m never, ever going to leave you.’”
That was a promise he made to Nicole, and soon Lionel realized, in the midst of touring and songwriting, that he ended up getting the same thing in return.
“I think you…changed my life a great deal in terms of softening my heart, because everything up to that point was about songwriting and the business and touring,” he said. “All of a sudden I found something that I could actually fall in love with that was never going to leave me. How about that?”

Nicole Richie has joined forces with American fashion company Revolve to bring a new line of California influenced clothing. The House of Harlow 1960 x Revolve line features maxi dresses, slip dresses, playsuits, jumpsuits, midi skirts and bralettes and will be available from June 2nd exclusively on the respective websites. The Belfast Telegraph reports:
Nicole Richie is “extremely proud” of her designs for her collaboration between her label House of Harlow 1960 and American fashion company Revolve.
Nicole Richie was inspired by relaxed Los Angeles living when she was working on her latest fashion line.
The reality TV star and House of Harlow 1960 creative director has partnered with American fashion label Revolve, which is based in Cerritos, California, on a fun and flirty new collection.
While designing the line, Nicole was influenced by the climate and wide expanse of the region, and accordingly, the 20-piece collection reflects this.
House of Harlow 1960 x Revolve features maxi dresses, slip dresses, playsuits, jumpsuits, midi skirts and bralettes in a range of chic colours, including pale pink hues, navy and copper shades.
“We both are L.A. based and I thought it was important to celebrate that,” Nicole to WWD. “There are so many parts of being in L.A., from being outdoors and having all this space. I was really inspired by that.”
The ongoing collaboration will run for a year with new deliveries released monthly, which Nicole, 34, cites as an opportunity to really tap into new trends. The blonde beauty may also expand the current line with a new jewellery collection.
“I feel like I have a closer connection with the customer. There is no middle man. I’m extremely proud of this collection. I poured my heart and soul into it,” she said.
Revolve carries around 500 brands in its online store and also operates the FWRD by Elyse Walker luxury online shop.
Revolve vice president of brand marketing Raissa Gerona said the collaboration is a natural fit because House of Harlow and Nicole both “speak so well” to the existing Revolve customer.
With Revolve targeting sales of $600 million (£410 million) this year (16), Nicole was impressed with the corporate culture and drive of executives at the fast-growing fashion company.
“It’s like a fun party that you just want to be a part of and everybody there is just really excited. You don’t hear the word ‘no’ a lot,” she smiled.
The collection will be sold on the Revolve and House of Harlow websites exclusively beginning 2 June (16).
