One of the perks of being in a high fashion sibling pair (think: Bella and Gigi Hadid, or Suki and Immy Waterhouse) is that you get to merge two fabulous closets into one fashionista’s paradise. But that’s not the case for Nicole and Sofia Richie, says big sis Nicole.
“I’m very particular about my clothes,” the House of Harlow 1960 designer tells PEPOLE during SVEDKA Vodka’s Broken Resolutions Bash at Nightingale Plaza in Los Angeles on Tuesday night. “We have different styles.”
While Sofia generally opts for a designer bomber, some slashed denim and a pair of Yeezys with some colored lens aviator sunglasses, Nicole takes cues from the ’60s, donning anything that sparkles or has lace with a vintage pair of Levi’s 501 jeans and lots of gold accessories.
“I don’t know if I’ve given her any [style advice],” Nicole says about Sofia becoming a young style icon on her own.
But there is one thing Nicole could easily give anyone advice on: how to replenish your healthy locks after trying nearly every hue in the rainbow (from her natural brown to purple to blue to pink to platinum).
“Right now, I’m doing nothing [with my hair],” Nicole says of last year’s vow to wear her hair pulled back in a bun whenever possible to try to get it healthy.
“I’m doing leave in conditioner, coconut oil and [that’s it],” she says. “I stopped straightening it—I was straightening it for a long time and I stopped—and basically stopped coloring it and just left it alone.”
While this could be the end of Nicole’s color changes, she’s keeping the haircuts coming.
“I’m not trying to get any longer than my shoulders,” she says. “I’m 35, let’s be honest, so I don’t really have that far to go.”
