Nicole Richie Rocks Purple Hair & Reveals Who’s Hotter Than Her Husband Joel Madden In Paper
Prince‘s purple reign is officially over.
For the May 2014 issue of Paper, Nicole Richie rocks her lovely lilac locks on the cover of the fashion magazine with an attitude that screams, “Purple Hair, Don’t Care!” Throughout the enchanting pictorial, shot in the backyard of her sunny Los Angeles, Calif. home, the 32-year-old fashion icon showed off her off-kilter style in designs by Valentino, Alberta Ferretti, Emporio Armani, Nina Ricci, Marchesa, John Hardy, Donna Karen, and her very own House of Harlow.
“My idea of being a grown-up was living behind a white picket fence and changing who you were —getting a bob and wearing beige—but I found freedom being myself,” she explained of pushing the boundaries when it comes to her fashion choices. “Being able to do it my way.”
When she isn’t busy working on her upcoming VH1 reality series #Candidly Nicole or designing for her House of Harlow label, the former BFF of Paris Hilton enjoys spending time at home.
“I wake up around 5:30, before the rest of my family, and that’s my time alone,” she explained. “Then I spend some time tending to my garden. We have apple trees, blueberry trees, lemon trees, strawberries, butter lettuce, arugula, sugar snap peas, tomatoes, carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, kale, spinach, mint, thyme, oregano, and sage.”
The daughter of musical icon Lionel Richie also enjoys playing with her husband Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden‘s German shepherd.
“Look!” screams Richie pointing at the pet. “Look how hot Iro is! I just look at him sometimes and think he is so manly and strong. He’s everything a woman could ask for, so you know, I understand if Joel gets jealous.”
