the simple life
For some reason I'm obsessed with this editorial of Nicole Richie for Ocean Drive magazine. It's simple, beautiful and clean, but somehow remains true to her boho style. I love everything from her hair to her crazy shoes. I've become such a fan of Nicole's look. She mixes bohemian, edgy and girly so perfectly without ever looking like she's trying.
This look seems more classic than I'd expect from Nicole. The polished blonde bun reminds of of Blair Eadie. The black corset with the lace cardigan is very Miami, appropriate for Ocean Drive, but also seems sort of fifties, or early sixties. Then, she takes Lady Gaga's and Victoria Beckham's signature heelless platforms and manages to make even them seem less avant-garde and more low-key and mod. The minimalist styling, decor and color scheme make the cover that much more aesthetically pleasing.
