Nicole Richie discovered her “desire to design” when she was on a boring vacation with her parents.

The TV personality has made a name for herself as a fashionista and even runs brand House of Harlow 1960. Her love for all things stylish began when her parents took her on holiday and she ran out of things to do.

“I remember my parents dragging me to Alabama every summer as a teenager,” she laughed to the latest edition of UK InStyle magazine. “I hated it, so I would buy fashion magazines, cut out my favourite outfits, then make collages to ease the boredom! It sparked a desire to design.”

Nicole, 32, has experienced quite a style evolution over the years and went from tight tops and short skirts on reality show The Simple Life to flowing dresses and gorgeous red carpet gowns. While she’s been lauded for her boho style, it doesn’t mean much to Nicole.

“When it comes to my own style, I think of myself as a jeans and T-shirt type of girl,” she admitted. “I laugh at the whole ‘boho-chic’ label. It wasn’t a big deal to me – I just liked wearing what was comfortable.”

The star is married to Joel Madden and together they have kids Harlow, six, and Sparrow, four. Being a mom has also influenced the way Nicole dresses.

“My style has definitely evolved,” she mused. “Being a mother and turning 30 are the biggest changes. Unless it’s an event, I dress for comfort.”
