Former Simple Life star turned mommy designer Nicole Richie posed for a few pics and sits down for an interview with the June issue of Glamour magazine.
Photographed by Patric Shaw and interviewed by Amy Spencer, Richie appears in mag wearing a yellow Martin Grant top, Agnès B bikini and Mosley Tribes sunglasses; a white Rag & Bone top, Agnès B bikini, House of Harlow 1960 earrings and a Yestadt Millinery hat; an orange Winter Kate dress, House of Harlow 1960 chocker and bangles and Pamela Love rings.
GLAMOUR: Your waves today looked gorgeous. But that’s with
pro help. How do you get that look at home?
Nicole Richie: I have naturally curly hair, so “natural” beach
waves are not so natural for me. I like to braid my hair at night
and then let it out the next day. And I also curl my hair with a
flatiron. I actually think I’m the best hairstylist on the planet.
GLAMOUR: Are you serious?
Nicole: Yes, I’m very serious. I’m mixed, and it’s work to do my hair,
so I learned how to do it well myself. I would be a hairstylist. I
actually like to go to the salon and blow out people’s hair.
GLAMOUR: That is so funny. Do people tip you?
Nicole: No one tips me. [Laughs.] Or pays. That’s the next step.
GLAMOUR: Does Joel [Madden, Richie’s husband] notice
when you change your hair?
Nicole: Joel noticed this Valentine’s Day that I had bangs. He
looked at me and was like, “You got bangs, I see.” I was like,
“I’ve had bangs since I was 22 years old!” [Laughs.]
GLAMOUR: Joel once tweeted, “What’s your favorite app?” And
you replied, “The How to Make Your Husband Go Out So You
Can Watch Reality TV in Peace app.” Hilarious.
Nicole: You know, Joel barely speaks all day, and then out of
nowhere he has 9 million things to say, only for 30 minutes,
from 9:00 to 9:30 P.M., when I’m watching Real Housewives.
GLAMOUR: You also tweeted, “My rap career is on the rise.”
Nicole: It is! Just wait and see. I’m the best! Actually, I cannot
rhyme cat without going to rhymezone.com. I’m so bad at it!
GLAMOUR: You went through a period where you were super
thin and everyone was commenting on it. Now you have two
kids and look awesome. How do you feel about your body?
Nicole: I feel [gets all fake dramatic]…great about my body.
[Laughs.] You know, aesthetically I can be picky, but I choose
not to. I’ve taken huge leaps. I’m proud of that. I work out, and I
get lots of sleep, and so I feel great. And that is most important.
GLAMOUR: We like to think of you as a trendsetter. Do you
think of yourself that way?
Nicole: No! [Laughs.] My world is small. I have my circle of 10
friends, my kids, my family. None of them call me a trendsetter.
GLAMOUR: Now you’ve got the Nicole Richie Collection on
QVC. Any advice for women starting their own business?
Nicole: Study your craft. Know it well before you jump in. I wait all
the time. Because I don’t want to just put my name on something
and then release it. What’s the point of that?
GLAMOUR: What’s your absolute favorite moment in every day?
Nicole: When I wake up at 5:30 A.M. and it’s still dark out. I love,
love being alone. It helps me to be a better mom to my kids
and a better person at work.
