Nicole Richie on racing dress codes and Australian fashion


Announced today as the face of the Golden Slipper in association with the Australian Turf Club.

Nicole Richie almost considers herself an honourary Australian. Vogue was in Los Angeles to interview her, coincidentally on Australia Day just last month. “I’m offended no one wished me a happy Australia Day!” she says, jokingly aghast. Accompanying her husband Joel Madden who is a judge on The Voice in Australia, Richie is also fluent in Australian fashion, quickly naming Scanlan Theodore and Jac and Jack as her favourite Australian brands.

Admittedly a racing novice, it was the celebratory aspect which drew her to the event. “I’ve heard it’s fun… it just feels like such a fun, big celebration.”

As part of her international ambassadorship, she’ll also be judging fashions on the field. “Even when I did Fashion Star, I don’t think it’s very fair to judge people on appearance alone,” she says. “What I love about fashion is really the spirit behind it and where it’s coming from, using it as an opportunity to express yourself, so that’s what I’ll be looking for – what’s the world behind it.”

Read more about Richie in the April issue of Vogue Australia, out next month.
