What We Would Give Nicole Richie For Her Birthday

09/21/2006 at 10:17 AM ET

Today is Nicole Richie’s 25th Birthday! We are such big fans of her style and feel like we might actually know her taste a little. So we have a few ideas on what we would give Nicole for her birthday if, you know, we were actually friends with her. Hint to Brody: a girl can never have too many Birkin bags.

1. It can be daunting giving gifts to the uber-stylish, but you can’t go wrong with fashionista favorite Chloe — either an adorable clutch for nighttime or a super-size tote for daytime.

2. We already know that Nicole loves leopard print shoes, so these Christian Louboutin wedges should make her purr. Or perhaps these Jimmy Choo stilettos, since she has appeared in their advertising?

3. There is no middle ground in her wardrobe anymore — it’s either maxi dresses or mini shorts. This boho vintage dress or these adorable boucle shorts would look great on her.

4. Nicole, we want to reduce your stress levels. How about Molton Brown’s Relaxing Yuan Zhi Bath and Shower Gel or this Henri Bendel Lavender Leaves candle?

5. And because you know she can’t get enough of them, perhaps she’d like another pair of huge vintage sunglasses?

Maybe if Nicole shared her struggles, other people could identify and relate with her and maybe show some sympathy. But that fact that she just keeps saying she is so thin due to stress…Yeah, stress form the press to be thin.
Why do these girls want to look SO thin and “healthy” when they are SO far from healthy by being way underweight, smoking and tanning???? …oh yeah this blog was about what to get her for her birthday….maybe some Therapy!

She is aware that her weight is an issue….I am sure she trying hard to gain couple lbs and looking healthier. I am pretty thin myself. I’m 5’2 and 100lbs, but I dont look sick, however I always get comment on why am I so thin? I hate it….I feel good about myself, I never complain about how thin I look, and it is not like I am trying to be thin, I eat what I want, whenever I want, and however much I want to…and I have to admit that I don’t eat a lot, but I always eat until I can’t eat anymore….so leave Nicole alone….!!! Beside she has great style, she always looks so fabulous!!!! Keep it up, Nicole!!!!

I’m sick of all you fatties criticising people who are skinny and labelling them as anorexic! None of you could honestly say that you KNOW she’s anorexic so give her the benefit of the doubt for Petes sake! She looks alot better than she did when she was fatter.

Some food because she looks like shes dying!!!

This girl was Never “Fat”. Never!!
She is killing herself. Her eating disorder is obvious. This is NOT a natural look for anyone, no matter what anyone says.
She is commting suicide..One pound at a time.
SHe looks sick. She IS sick. Perhaps we should all leave her alone to deal with her very real illness

I would have taken her to see Andre Borcelli with the New York Philharmonic Orchestra during the first of September as an early gift.

On her birthday, I would have fixed her favorite dinner personally, and given her an arrangement of her favorite flowers. At the end of dinner, I give her a gift, a Cartier Trinity necklace and matching ear rings.

Happy Birthday!

If I were her boyfriend, I would have taken her to NYC during the first week of September to hear Andree Borcelli with the New York City philharmonic during the first week of September because of her eclectic love for music.

On her birthday and late afternoon, I would take her to FEMME in Bal Harbor, would treat her to the SPA treatment, massage, manicure, and pedicure and then let my friend, Marcel Reboh cut and style her hair.

Later in the evening, I would take her to my place and make her favorite dinner and then “go out” for dessert.

At the close of our evening, I would walk her to the door, and surprise her with a small gift wrapped box, having the Cartier Trinity necklace inside. As I gave it to her I would say I hope this day was special for you, it was for me.

Happy Birthday Nicole.

You ask and this is my answer, this is the gift that I would give her and the things that I would do on her birthday.

Rolemodels on

I agree we should not judge, but she does need to gain some wieght. Models, her, and some great people out there are role models. Tons of girls small and old look at her and say shes a great role-model, then when she became skinnier then ever, those girls felt pressured to look like her and be like her. That is what young girls are exposed to today. People are stressed about how they look. I belive shes sending out the wrong message to teenage girls. I think if this world all came to relize that there are young kids and teenagers out there that look up to them. If I had a choice to say something to her, I would say to please relize those prussered kids out there today, and then see if this body wieght is healthy.
Happy b-day nicole, my most sincere wishes.

lets give her a break and leave her alone!
