Nicole Richie: "I'm a Jeans and T-shirt Type of Girl"
Nicole Richie looks chic even when she goes to the grocery store.
But the mother-of-two, 28, tells the October issue of UK In Style, "I donâ€™t think itâ€™s as prepared as youâ€™d think. I just grab whateverâ€™s around and put it on," according to Britain's Daily Mail, which features excerpts from the article.
She says she's "pretty much a jeans and T-shirt type of girl and then I go from there."
Her style secret? "I collect a lot of vintage kimonos and vintage bed jackets," she says. "Iâ€™ll throw those on, and a lot of the time it will appear that Iâ€™m wearing a completely different outfit, but Iâ€™m not."
Her 2-year-old daughter Harlow, on the other hand, is different when it comes to getting dressed.
"[Harlow] picks her own clothes. Itâ€™s a 20-minute thing â€“ it begins at 7:30 each morning," she says. "But it is what it is and itâ€™s fine."
In the interview, Richie says she's also put an end to her wild partying days (in 2006, she pleaded guilty to DUI and served a brief stint in the slammer).Â "I got myself through it with the help of a lot of great people," she says.
She now prefers domestic life, making "home-cooked and very, very healthy" food for her family (which includes son Sparrow, who turns 1 this month).
"I donâ€™t have a hat and apron, but I entertain at home a lot," she says. "I love cooking for other people."
Says Richie, "My house is pretty eclectic. I think it represents me well. Itâ€™s fun and comfortable at the same time and itâ€™s a place where a lot of people like to be. It has a lot of people in and out all the time."
