Like any fashion powerhouse, Nicole Richie — who turns 32 today — experimented with a variety of styles before honing her signature look, but throughout her style evolution, she has stayed true to one luxe staple once reserved for rock-and-roll royalty. Nicole has taken her love of leather on a sartorial journey from everyday ensembles to red carpet soirees. Whether she's topping flowing maxi skirts with studded leather jackets, channeling her inner Bond girl in flared leather trousers, or brightening the style scene in electrifying leather fit-and-flares, Nicole looks to leather to lend that extra panache to her already distinct fashions.
