Remember when Nicole Richie was Paris Hilton’s sidekick? Yeah. Those days are long gone. The erstwhile reality TV star turned designer is expanding her fashion empire with a new collection of clothes for QVC.
“The line is cute — it can be worn by teeny-tiny girls but also goes up to size XXXL,” a source tells Us magazine. “Nicole has a great fashion sense, and she’s very hands-on.”
The 30-year-old Richie already has two fashion lines — House of Harlow and Winter Kate — and has signed on as a mentor in NBC’s upcoming “Fashion Star.” In her spare time, Richie — along with husband Joel Madden — is raising two children, Harlow Winter Kate (3) and Sparrow James (2).
Her House of Harlow brand includes jewelry, sunglasses, handbags, perfume and apparel and is available at high-end department stores, including Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman-Marcus. In 2009, Richie also teamed with A Pea in the Pod to create a line of maternity clothing.
