Nicole Richie‘s closet has seen it all. Though the 36-year-old star and designer has in recent years settled into her own confident style, her early aughts wardrobe was known for its headscarves, tracksuits, and trucker hats — all quintessential trends of the time. Now, Nicole is dusting off many of her old looks for an unapologetically nostalgic shoot with Paper magazine.
For the editorial, Nicole resurrected all the classics: a Juicy Couture velour tracksuit, several boho-chic dresses, her daring 2013 Met Gala look, a comfortable, what we call “shopping spree ensemble,” with a wide-brim fedora, an Alexander McQueen skull scarf, and a pair of knee-high UGG boots. Nicole even brought back her brunette hair for a snap featuring a teeny Chihuahua, of course.
While her style has certainly evolved, Nicole insists that there’s always been “some sort of a through line.” She added, “I’ve always been attracted to color, to a certain drape, a certain fit. I’m never one to shy away from a headpiece. All of those things have stayed consistent, just different versions of them.” Ahead, see pictures from the epic throwback shoot.
