CBS News recently interviewed Nicole Richie. See what she has to say on fall staples, style, her new QVC line and more.
CBS News: How did you come to work on this collection for QVC?
Nicole Richie: I’ve been collaborating and selling my designs at QVC for a few seasons now, it’s been a great collaboration and I’m really proud of the collection we’ve built together.
Where did you find inspiration for the designs?
I find inspiration in my everyday life, music and travels.
Is there a certain type of woman you envision wearing these clothes?
I always keep the everyday woman in mind when designing this collection. I like pieces that are versatile and can work for different body types & styles. I always have key pieces in my closet that can easily transition from day to night, whether I’m in mum-mode or going to work meetings.
How does this collection differ from others you’ve worked on in the past?
We have a faux fur piece in this collection, which is definitely a new direction. We’re always trying to keep the collection fresh while still staying true to the line.
What trends do you see being big for fall?
I don’t follow trends, I think they can be limiting as far as developing your own personal style. That said, a great leather jacket and oversized sweaters are fall staples for me.
Do you have a favourite outfit or item in your closet?
I have a black knit dress that is in rotation all year.
“Candidly Nicole” just finished its first season on VH1 — have you been pleased by the reception it’s gotten?
It’s really been so amazing, I’m really proud of the show and excited that we got picked up for a second season.
What’s next for you? What other projects are you working on?
I’m currently shooting season 2 of my Web series and will soon start shooting season 2 of the Vh1 series.
You’ve experimented with so many different hair colours and looks over the years — is there anything you wouldn’t try?
I’m always game to try anything!
