We’re in the middle of a Nicole Richie-aissance. The 36-year-old star has her own successful fashion label, House of Harlow 1960, and just teamed up with Urban Decay Cosmetics as the spokesperson for its new Troublemaker mascara, which boasts a formula that is so durable, it’s “sex-proof.” So of course Richie had to put it to the test.
“Did I test it? Yes,” she told Galore magazine in a new interview. “It’s been through many tests and according to Joel [Madden, her husband], it’s sex proof.”
Richie also caught up with with Coveteur to promote the new mascara and dish on some of her favorite trends, like the fanny pack.
Everyone from Kendall Jenner to Kim Kardashian is experimenting with luxury designer fanny packs from Louis Vuitton, Gucci and Chanel. Even Academy Award winner Leonardo DiCaprio tried the trend earlier this year when he was spotted exploring Thailand in a black fanny pack.
Basically, it doesn’t seem like this throwback accessory is going away anytime soon, which the House of Harlow 1960 founder is happy about.
“Sometimes I don’t want a bag and want to be free. Unless we’re talking about a fanny pack, then I am down,” the star said.

“I love a good fanny pack!” Richie continued. “Everything you need, right here.”
Richie has said she enjoys dressing comfortably and especially favors sweats and anything super-cozy when she’s hanging out at home with her 9-year-old daughter Harlow. And now that we’ve crossed over into fall, Richie told Coveteur it’s officially her favorite time of year to get dressed.
“I’m a winter girl. I like to layer,” Richie said. “I like a hundred clothes on my body. I blast the heat, cozy up, watch a good ’90s romantic comedy. That’s what winter’s all about.”
But since the designer lives in L.A., where the temperatures rarely drop lower than 60 degrees, sometimes she has to fake it until she makes it.
“When it’s below 70, I pretend it’s snowing and I wrap myself in every article of clothing that I have,” Richie said.
