As planned, Nicole Richie was joined by friends and family for her big fancy baby shower at the Beverly Hills Hotel yesterday. Paris cohosted the Wizard of Oz themed event, which included guests like Nicky, Rashida Jones, and Samantha Ronson. InStyle was inside for all the fun, check out their gallery of party photos. Even though Nicole and Joel asked their guests to donate gifts to charity, some guests couldn't resist buying something for the little one — including a pair of sneakers for a baby boy and a maternity shirt with a boy on the front. Supposedly the couple doesn't know the sex of their baby yet, but these gifts are pretty suggestive that their little one may be getting a few more blue items in the future.
