Nicole Richie is about to arrive in Australia, and with her comes this rumor from the Oz fashion set: If a designer - or a sponsor - can pay Nicole enough money, she'll come to their show. We've witnessed a celebrity get money for a Fashion Week appearance before. The first time it happened, we were shocked. By the sixth time - when a major male pop star was courted by a sportswear label - our only surprise was how little the check would be. According to our sources, who once tried (and failed) to hire Nicole to host their cosmetics party, the starlet costs about $30,000 per appearance. Regardless, we have total faith that if Nicole does attend Aussie Fashion Week, it's because she believes in the emerging design talent down there. The first time we met her, she was wearing a Roland Mouret dress (and was gorgeous in it). Nicole would look just as incredible in something by Lisa Ho or Josh Goot; hopefully she'll swing by their showrooms in Sydney to play dress-up. For love, of course, and not for money.
