Nicole Richie is known as known for her boho-chic style as she is for Hollywood pedigree — and with fans like Madonna wearing her House of Harlow 1960 jewelry collection, her design career couldn’t be hotter. Pregnant with her second child (daughter Harlow Winter is 19 months old), the star has signed on to create (and model) a line of maternity clothes with her signature flair for A Pea in the Pod. Richie talked to PEOPLE exclusively about the new line, explaining that the collaboration works because “Pea in the Pod is such a known company for pregnant women. They carry great lines, and so when they asked me to create a line for them, I was really excited and eager to do it.” And being pregnant herself means that Nicole is especially considerate of her customers. “You really feel like you have to change your whole wardrobe. And that’s the last thing a woman wants to go through. So I really tried to make this line to get women excited about wearing clothes.” And while Nicole admits she doesn’t always wear maternity clothes, she definitely thinks the pregnant form should be flaunted! “I think the pregnant body is beautiful, and I think you should show it off,” citing her jean cutoffs as a go-to this pregnancy. As for what to expect in the line, think peasant tops, layering tees, flowing maxidress and braided details. Nicole may have a few months left until she has her second child, but she says of her newest design collection making its debut, “It feels great to see everything come to life. It’s the best feeling in the world to have your visions and dreams coming together. I’m so excited for people to see them. I just hope that people like it.” We give it our thumbs up! “Nicole”, an exclusive collection for A Pea in the Pod stores on Friday, with prices ranging from $48 for tank tops to $148 to maxidresses.

They are great looking clothes BUT Pea in the Pod is soooo expensive. I wish I could have afforded these maternity clothes. I would like to say I was fashionable during my pregnancy ( I have a 6 month old). hahha..YAY Nicole Richie!

Yes, because being married to your child’s father is far more important than raising them with good morals, in a loving home. There’s nothing wrong with having children out of wedlock and I have absolutely no idea how this is meant to affect the child’s self-esteem.

I love the fact that she has grown into this beautiful mother and woman. Nicole is proof that
with will power and the right love and support you can live a full life. She looks amazing!

i agree with kathy and rose and it’s a shame that all these celebrities are having kids out of wedlock and they are being glorified regular people look to them as examples and role models and they copy them.someone said more important to bring them up with morals than be married you have to have morals to bring a child up with them and getting married is showing you have morals,it is not just a piece of paper,it’s been reduced to that by small-minded people.those that disagree with kathy and are judging her make me sick.

To Rose and Kathy, it’s still such a shame that women continue to bash one another. Don’t we get enough of that from men? Being a mother who’s a good role model has more to do with nurturing your children, raising them as individuals and showing them how to treat others fairly and compassionately in the world. I didn’t realize that women choosing to be responsible parents regardless of their marital status was such a bad example to today’s youth. What is the world coming to? I applaud Nicole for pursuing her business ventures and setting the example that young girls can be future business leaders too.

a pea in the pod? that’s so cute! i have always loved her and now that she’s become a responsible, classy woman and mom i think she’s fantastic. some of these things i wouldn’t wear cause they aren’t me but i love the boho-hippie chic style that she has. i dress the same way. love it and love her.

I really love the 1st and 2nd dress! It too expensive though – not many people can afford to spend that much on maternity wear.
In terms of the comment about making kids legitimate….marriage doesn’t increase kid’s self-esteem, two loving parents do. I know couple’s who aren’t married and have kids and have a wonderful, devoted family dynamic. On the other hand, I’ve seen people who don’t understand the concept of fidelity. Which environment do you think is better for a child?!
And for all those comments, if you really believe in marriage before kids – then make sure you get married before you have your own kids..don’t judge others on the decisions they make.
