Soon you’ll be able to channel style icon Nicole Richie from head to toe — at least as far as accessories are concerned. Following the success of her line of headbands and jewelry, the star has just inked a deal to design footwear, WWD reports. Partnering with the manufacturers who produce Modern Vintage shoes and Earnest Sewn jeans, Richie will add a line of around 20 shoe styles to her House of Harlow 1960 label for spring of 2010, as well as bags, belts and small accessories. And according to business partner Rick Cytrynbaum, Richie will have creative control at every level of the design process. “Nicole is designing everything herself,” he says. “She’s totally devoted to this, and we’re creating a whole lifestyle around her aesthetic and what is true to her.” Click here to check out her current collection at shopkitson.com. Tell us: What do you think about Richie’s latest design venture?

Now explain to me why Nicole is “famous”? I understand she considers herself a singer. Is her celebrity status all because of being Paris Hiltons former best friend, thus her acting abilities?

her style is cool… ill definitely wear her stuff! and it doesn’t matter why she’s famous… if her clothes are cool, i dont care how she became famous! i like her anyway

An amusing attempt to do what a thousand other designers do better. Nicole should go back to being a drug addict and reality TV star. At least she seemed to excel at those two things.

I am so glad she dropped Paris Hilton as a friend. That girl had her doing absolutely nothing with herself. Now Nicole has a beautiful child, a good man and a great great great future/career ahead of her.

KUDOS to Nicole Ritchie.

Nicole Richie’s latest design adventure is awesome, I wish her the best with designing shoes! Congrats to Brad Paisley on winning those country awards, etc. Also, Marie Osmond is awesome, you go girl!

So awesome – can’t wait! I love everything about Nicole’s style and know her shoes will be just like everything else. So chic. http://www.iheartheels.com

Nicole Ritchie isn’t my favorite person, and I too wonder what her talent is and why she is always in the media. However, I think the person who wrote that she should “go back to being a drug addict” is cruel and heartless. To wish that horrible condition on anyone, especially someone who has a child, is simply wrong.

Nicole Richie’s fame comes from her father Lionel Richie. That is how people know her, but she made her break with that show she did with Paris Hilton on TV.

I look forward to seeing Nichol’s designs.
