Tooheys New Golden Slipper Day took place on March 21st in Sydney, Australia, where Nicole Richie enjoyed the races for the first time and judged on the racing fashions. Nicole wore a dress by Balmain and shoes by Siren.
Nicole Richie was recently on the Nova 96.9 radio show Fitzy and Wippa where she played Filly or Fashion? Check out the video below! You can listen to Nicole’s interview with them via podcast (the March 20th one) by clicking here. Nicole appears around the 18:15 mark.
Nicole Richie spoke to Vogue Australia about how to navigate vintage stores. You can read more about Nicole in the April issue of Vogue on sale Monday March 23rd.
It all started off with an obsession. “I started House of Harlow 1960 because I’m obsessed with the late 60s and early 70s,” says Nicole Richie of her penchant for the retro. “I gravitated towards the music and once I started diving into the classic rock music of that time, I looked at the fashion and people were using fashion as a form of self-expression. They were really just dressing exactly how they felt and I think the music really forced you to get in touch with exactly who you are.”
An understanding of the era informs her fashion and style, which has ranged from high-necked gowns to fringed shawls or crop tops. She’s a formidable collector of vintage jewellery, which she stores in labelled boxes. “Head to Resurrection [in Los Angeles], they have great vintage jewellery.” Right now, her latest obsession are collar necklaces – she last bought a vintage Chanel necklace – and clip-on earrings. “I wear them over my piercings so they stay, because I’m too paranoid that they’ll fall off!”
She also takes styling cues from the era. “You could mix whatever you wanted like different textiles and fabrics – it was so fun.” She takes this approach when it comes to shopping for vintage. “I just like to walk around and see, and clothes are able to speak to you,” she says – she doesn’t go in specifically seeking something out. “I like browsing and feeling what I’m pulled towards.” And don’t cross anything off your list – never say never. “Over time your eye changes and your perspective changes so I could say I’m completely closed off to something one year and be totally down for it the next year, depending on where I am in life.”
And her final tip? Get everything tailored. “I’m 5’1”!” she reminds us with a laugh.
Nicole Richie will be in Sydney for the Golden Slipper racing carnival in association with the Australian Turf Club. Read more about her in the April issue of Vogue on sale Monday March 23.
Jessica Wilkinson of Australia’s InStyle magazine had a quick interview with Nicole Richie yesterday (March 19th).
Here is a snippet from the article:
This is a very short trip. Are you happy to be back in Australia?
“I am, I am! I’m here all the time so it really feels like a second home to me. Plus, the weather is beautiful so I’m very happy.”
Did you watch any good movies on your flight over?
“I watched Interstellar, which happens to be one of my favourites. I had also pre-downloaded five episodes of Scandal because I wanted to catch up but I didn’t actually press download. So I got on the plane and I was ready to go and I couldn’t watch them. I had to wait until I got here so I caught up last night.”
I love that show!
“Don’t get me started. I’ll talk for ages.”
Okay let’s change the topic. In your last interview with InStyle (for our September 2012 issue), you said you find it hard to see yourself as an adult. Do you still struggle with that?
“[Laughs] Yes! Sometimes. I was just talking about this recently actually because I’m moving into homewares with House of Harlow and the reason I’m doing that is because there are a lot of women at this turning point and I’ve been one of them. I was stepping into my thirties and buying my first real home and I would look at someone like Martha Stewart and think, ‘Oh, I’m never going to be like her. Fail!’. But that’s not necessarily the case. I was always very intimidated by the feeling that I’m never going to be in that position or be that person but now I’m empowered by it. It’s something a lot of women are going through so that’s why I’m starting to move into homewares. I think it’s important.”
