Nicole Richie is like a goddess to us here at StyleWatch: we worship her style and pretty much everything she wears and creates. But one of her latest looks has us slightly thrown.

While in Sydney, Australia, for a House of Harlow meet-and-greet at David Jones, Richie wore a polka-dot top, black cardigan, complementary red hat and … flared black leather pants. Though she wears them well, do they necessarily say, “This is 2012”?

We like the rest of Richie’s rock ‘n’ roll look, but just can’t decide what we think about the pants. How do you feel about them? Vote in our poll below and leave your thoughts in the comments; your feedback could end up in a future issue of PEOPLE StyleWatch.
