It was around 2006 that Nicole went from Paris Hilton's trashy sidekick on The Simple Life to paparazzi star and fashion genius. I mean Nicole was truly at the forefront of the skinny jeans/ballet flats/giant bag combo (however she was also at the forefront of the disgustingly skinny fad but we'll overlook that for now.)
I mean technically I suppose we should give Rachel Zoe the credit as she gave Nicole the magical movie makeover we all dream of having (plus Nicole lost about a gazillion pounds which didn't hurt.) But it was Nicole that rocked it and I believe made everyone buy skinny jeans. I may even give credit to Nicole for sunglasses (ugh but Paris was actually a big part of that.)
Plus she is the only person who doesn't look ridiculous while wearing this:
Here are some of my favorite Nicole looks:
|Love this dress!|
She has a real rocker chic look going on and I love it.
So we got skinny jeans, ballet flats, giant sunglasses and then of course the head scarf and skull scarf. I mean, hey, if you want to dress like Captain Hook, then you dress like Captain Hook.
And then there were those Balenciaga bags.
|Because sometimes you just need two|
|That one is bigger than her!|
I definitely tried to impersonate these looks (on the way cheaper cheaper side.) I think I did so somewhat successfully but no one looked as good as Nicole.
