Nicole Richie may be known for her frequent hair changes and pending marital status to longtime beau Joel Madden, but these days, the 29-year-old mother of two is making fashion a very serious priority. The actress and former reality star is gearing up to add bags and sunglasses to her Winter Kate and House of Harlow 1960 collections for spring and fall 2011 and is setting even bigger goals, including a possible cosmetics line, for the future, reports WWD. “I have been traveling all over the world, meeting with buyers, doing appearances and meeting my customers to get their feedback,” she tells the publication. “Now I feel I know them very well, and have been designing for them.” That includes a “more outrageous the better mentality,” which she will apply to jewelry and maybe even her new line of handbags. It’s also a style mantra that the star has embodied when it comes to her ever-changing hairstyles. “The fun part is experimenting with different looks. A month ago I had long dark hair and then I chopped it all off and bleached it blonde,” she says. “That’s what fashion is all about.” To read the complete interview, visit WWD.com. —Jessie Goldberg
