LA RACKED: Three Reasons Why Nicole Richie Is Every Fashion Girl’s Dream BFF

LA Racked writer Ashley Tibbits got to join Nicole Richie at NeueHouse Hollywood for a screening of Amazon’s Style Code Live. She shared the three reasons why Nicole is every fashion girl’s dream best friend.

As soon as I learned that I was going to sit down for dinner with Nicole Richie (and a few dozen other people, but who’s counting?), I was immediately fangirling. Now if you had told me the House of Harlow 1960 creator/hilarious TV personality would eventually be laughing, selfie-ing, and spilling serious style secrets with me, I would have probably gone into full-blown delirium.

And yet, that’s exactly where I found myself last night when the style star showed up to NeueHouse Hollywood for a screening of Amazon’s free, streaming series Style Code Live. Amid a filled crowd with other fashionable guests including Mr. Kate creator Kate Albrecht, Margo and Me’s Jenny Bernheim, wellness blogger Geri Hirsch, beauty expert Deepica Mutyala, and E! News correspondent Mark Malkin, we screened the live-from-New York episode and watched clips from previous shows (it launched back in March) which featured contributors like Ru Paul, Lauren Conrad, and — my spirit animal — EJ Johnson. Considering that list, I’ll def be tuning in from here on out.

Serendipitously, I sat across from Nicole (okay, I planned it) and I’m happy to report she’s just as cool, silly, and full of insight as you’d expect her to be. I’ve organized some of the highlights of the evening into a handy list of reasons why Nic rules. And yes, I’m calling her Nic now.

Bodysuits, slip dresses and coconut oil are the staples that keep Nicole stylish in summer heat. She expanded on her bodysuit obsession by stating they can be worn as easily with baggy jeans (she prefers vintage Levi’s, FYI) as a mini skirt. Looking for one to add to your wardrobe? Her own label stocks a few options, including this classic white one.

You already know this if you follow her social media channels, but Nicole is hardly a wallflower. In addition to excitedly snapping moments throughout the screening and dinner, she happily enjoyed steak and wine (my kinda girl), and busted out “Yas Queen!” on several occasions.

After several of us watched Nic pose for the gods, I had to ask her how the hell she looks so flawless in every shot. Not only did she share a passed-down tip, but she let me take video while she demonstrated it. Friendship goals achieved.

Catch Nicole’s segment on Style Code Live Monday, July 8th at 6pm.
