Nicole Richie is another one of the long list of celebrities we like to imagine is our BFF. And thanks to her cover story interview in May’s issue of PAPER, that feeling is ever stronger. Aside from her usual quirk and irreverent wit, we love Nicole’s lavender-hued take on nouveau Hollywood glamour from the inspirational cover shoot that took place in her backyard garden. Shot by The Coveteur–who worked with PAPER on this issue-the colorful spread is the perfect spring inspiration we need on this dreary NYC afternoon. (Click through below to see our favorite shots from the shoot.)
The boho fashion designer, wife, and mother of two (Harlow, age 6; Sparrow, age 4) was interviewed by her real-life BFF of 15 years, Sophia Rossi, co-founder of HelloGiggles, who chatted with Nicole about her garden, her family, and her upcoming return to reality TV with “Candidly Nicole” on VH1, which is set to premiere this July. Rossi wrote she was basically attempting to figure out “what Nicole does when she’s not admiring her dog or bouncing around to ’90s hip-hop in the car with me.”
Turns out, it’s a lot. She gets up at 5 am for some me time in her edible garden where she’s growing everything from kale to apples, and then spends the rest of the day dealing with work! Family work, House of Harlow work, fragrance work, and the work of being generally hilairous on Twitter, to name a few. For all the fun and funny details, plus more glam photos, head over to PAPER for the complete interview, and click through for some choice tidbits that we couldn’t resist sharing.
And Nicole, if you ever want to hang out, just you know, give us a call!
