How She Pulls Off the Print-on-Print Trend: Nicole Richie in Jean Paul Gaultier

Fashion icon Nicole Richie had been invited to host the grand opening of Nordstrom at the outdoor shopping arena Americana at Brand on September 17.  She wore a floral Jean Paul Gaultier maxi dress, leopard-print flats, and a fringe clutch from her very own House of Harlow 1960.

There aren’t many celebrities who can pull off an extreme print-on-print ensemble like Nicole. In fact, I think you need to score a lot of fashion brownie points before you can even attempt to go out in a floral dress and leopard-print shoes! However, let not the fear of print on print scare you from enjoying the bright and bold prints of our selections today. You can start slow by pairing them with lace-up boots or good old black pumps.

On a side note: You just gotta love celebrities who wear their own brand. It shows how much they believe in it! Our other favorite self-endorser? Mrs. Victoria Beckham!
