Nicole Richie in Lorena Sarbu

Posted on November 07, 2012

The word for today – or at least, for this post – is “soignée,” darlings. Also: “finger waves.”

Who knew former boho-chick Nicole Richie could work such an elegant, ’20s-inspired look? Except for the tramp stamp, she looks like she just stepped out of a Greta Garbo movie. On a different woman, we might’ve dinged this look for being a bit to bland in the color department, but there’s enough of a contrast here that it works – and besides, the beading goes a long way in keeping it interesting. We just wish she hadn’t chosen such a bland clutch. If you’re gonna go matchy with this dress, then a metallic bronze would’ve been a better choice. Still, we think she looks pretty stunning here.
