Nicole Richie strayed from her soft bohemian style and struck a dramatic pose on the October cover of InStyle UK. Inside she talks tattoos, pregnancy, and her infamous run-ins with the law. She's moved on from her days of partying and is currently focusing on making a name for herself in the fashion world with Winter Kate and House of Harlow. She also recently returned to film another cameo on Chuck, and Zachary Levi revealed that she brought Harlow and Sparrow to the set. Here's highlights:
- On the past: "One thing about me is that I've always taken responsibility for my own actions whether they're good or bad. Even when I was going through my tough time, that was a situation that I created. People ask me, do I blame Hollywood or my parents? No, I don't blame my parents. It had nothing to do with them. I created it and manifested it and I got myself through it with the help of a lot of great people."
- On tattoo regrets: "I'm a Virgo and the sign is a virgin. So when I was 16, I got the word virgin tattooed on my wrist, thinking I was sooo deep and cool. And now I just look really weird having virgin written across my wrist and I have to explain it."
- On pregnancy: "Being pregnant with Harlow was easy. I was wearing heels for eight months. I never got sick and I was like, 'Oh, what are people talking about?' But with Sparrow, I was so sick. And my feet were swelling. They were polar opposite pregnancies."
- On Harlow: "She picks her own clothes. It's a 20-minute thing — it begins at 7:30 each morning — but it is what it is and it's fine."
