Evolution of Nicole Richie

Nicole Richie has gone to the moon and back as far as transformation is concerned. The daughter of Lionel Richie staked her original claim to fame as crooner Lionel Richie’s daughter, and later as infamous party girl and co-star to former BFF Paris Hilton on the reality show ‘The Simple Life’. (Farming, bad extensions, cameo by Ke$ha. The show had something for everyone).

Somewhere along the line Richie met Rachel Zoe and lost the rave outfits and bad streaks, and has since emerged from those trashy ashes like some sort of fashion phoenix. She is a veritable industry powerhouse, with several clothing and accessory lines and is basically an actual deity in Japan. In 2010, she not only won an Entrepeneur of the Year award, but she also was a guest judge on Project Runway. She’s also written two novels and given birth to two children with husband Joel Madden. Not too shabby, Richie.
