Nicole's Fresh Start

Nicole's Fresh Start

Nicole Richie is making some big changes in her life. After more than 2 years together, Nicole has fired her stylist Rachel Zoe. Nicole and Rachel are close friends, and Nicole has looked beautiful at many various events over the years but it was time for a change. Nic said she, “wanted to surround herself with positive people and influences." Sounds like she really is into making her life a more healthier one. US Weekly reports:

Apparently that didn’t include the controversial fashionista, 35, who has long been accused of promoting unhealthy body images (her roster of stick-thin clients includes Mischa Barton and Lindsay Lohan, both 20).

“Nicole didn’t trust Rachel anymore,” a Richie pal says of the firing. “Zoe didn’t take the news well.”

Zoe’s rep denies this, adding that the split was amicable.

In her place, Richie has hired Cristina Ehrlich – who has dressed Jessica Biel and Penelope Cruz – to pick an outfit for the November 21 American Music Awards, where the actress has been asked to introduce a performance by dad Lionel Richie.

Tune into the AMAs tonight, and check out PopSugar tomorrow morning for Nicole's new look. In the meantime, more pics of Nicole who is looking more and more healthy every day so

I must admit, Nicole did look better after meeting Zoe, but then she tried "Bring ana back" and looked all scary and gross. Zoe is the biggest Hack out there, and if she is 35 as she claims to be, then the coke has made her age about 10 years.

This is SOOO good for her. Have you seen Rachel Zoe? She's like Nicole, but a bit taller and about 15 lbs less. After seeing her on TV, I don't think Rachel has an eating disorder. I think she's a very heavy cocaine user. There are many more stylists where that came from. By the way, I'm watching Lionel on AMA and he's an amazing entertainer. Nicole introduced him and she looks good.

She looks lovely. Still needs a little more weight. I don't believe she got bypass surgery! As for Rachel Zoe, it's good that Nicole is moving on. Her style is looking even better these days. Go Nicole! :)(I'm on her side now. lol)

That point where you find out what is truely important in life and knowing that you have to make a healthier change can be really scary, but she is very brave for taking that step. having to eat more is scary because she is so used to what she was doing and she had comfort and control is that. She needs to surround herself with her family and friends who support and love her for WHO SHE IS. Our spirit is who we are and what lives forever. ok....i'm thru babbling.

OK- i'll buy that she's been an addict for 2 years instead of the bypass/reversal. but it's got to be SOMETHING!

She looks better already, but still crazy skinny. That Rachel Zoe chick is on her way down the food chain...soon she will be dressing her "best friends" the Pussycat Dolls or the clients from Dr. 90210. Can she even dress people who weigh more than 100 lbs?

While it looks like the girl is finally really getting clean and off the cocaine/heroin train she has ridden so long. Hopefully she wont relapse again and try to hide it for 2 years :)
