Nicole Richie's Fashion Sense Shaped By Her Dad, Lionel

Nicole Richie shares how her dad, Lionel, shaped her sense of style.
With a super-stylish dad like Lionel Richie, it’s no wonder Nicole Richie has become a tastemaker with enviable personal style.

“When I was a little girl, my dad would have his costume designer, who would make his tour outfits, make me matching outfits out of the excess fabric,” Nicole told Fab Sugar explaining her father’s influence has helped her become the fashionista that she is today.

“For whatever crazy rhinestone bell bottom outfit hat my dad was wearing with his big Afro, she would make me a dress out of it.”

After years of following in her father’s fashion footsteps, Richie is putting those lessons in style to use as the mastermind behind two fashion lines, House of Harlow and Winter Kate. Richie has also signed on as a mentor in the upcoming reality show, “Fashion Star” and was recently named Influencer of the Year by the Accessories Council Excellence Awards.

Kudos to Nicole!
