OnlyOnAOL: Why Nicole Richie strives to be ‘open and vulnerable’

Nicole Richie spoke to AOL about the Pearl xChange and why she strives to be open and vulnerable.

Nicole Richie has her own clothing and jewelry line, House of Harlow 1960. And she’s got a new TV show on NBC, “Great News.”

But she is above all an empathetic and incredibly funny mom who very much appreciates the insane juggling act involving work and kids.

“I so respect you for doing this interview during dinner!” she exclaims, during an evening phone chat to discuss her conference, Pearl xChange, taking place in Los Angeles on November 5.

Her conference, which she’s hosting, features a mix of experts, including author/actress Cameron Diaz and Julie Rice and Elizabeth Cutler, the co-founders of SoulCycle. Plus, the day includes her close friends, Who What Wear powerhouse Katherine Power and Sophia Rossi, one of the brains behind HelloGiggles.

“I wanted to start this conference to present information in a different way. It’s about collaboration. It’s about how we as women have to approach each other. We have to be open and vulnerable,” says Richie.

She relies on the women in her life for advice, laughter, support and everything in between.

“My friends have been my friends since I was three years olds. We’re all very different. We celebrate our differences. We don’t feel like we need to dress the same,” she says.
