I've admitted this before on the site and I'll stand by it now--I'm a huge Nicole Richie fan. I love her personal style, think House of Harlow jewelry is totally cute, and find her charming and funny whenever she does interviews. Sure, her fame initially came about for no apparent reason and Rachel Zoe obviously had much to do with her style evolution years back, but I just can't help but like her. And I don't hate how she's working the news cycle right now. It's actually pretty smart.Yesterday the world got a first viewing of her new son Sparrow on the cover of People, and today WWD gives us a glimpse of her new contemporary line, Winter Kate (daughter Harlow's middle names.)
While I'm not in love with the one outfit they picture, I'm totally willing to give this line a shot in part because it sounds like it speaks to my own personal style and also because it feels a helluva a lot more organic than leaping into a job at a French fashion house. Maybe that makes me a hypocrite, given my oft critical nature when it comes to celebrity designers, but it's the truth.
