Nicole Richie on Sunglasses and Shoes

When it comes to fashion, Nicole Richie knows what she likes and what she doesn’t. And when it comes to accessories, she says there are a few essentials that can make or break a look. The stylish star tells that sunglasses are a vital part of completing any ensemble. “I view them as fun masks to accessorize your face,” say Richie, who admits to owning more than 200 pairs. “But in my defense,” she says, laughing, “I make sunglasses, so I have to research-shop, and I own every pair I’ve ever designed.” And even when she’s putting together a simple look like basic jeans and a T-shirt (her go-to outfit), the Winter Kate and House of Harlow 1960 designer says, “you change the look with accessories. And by accessories, I mean sunglasses, head scarves, shoes, bed jackets.” But just because she’s a fashion guru doesn’t mean she will wear anything to look trendy. “Comfort takes precedence for me,” she says, showing off her killer high heels as proof. “These are superhigh, but because they have a built-in platform, they don’t feel like it. I am not that girl who can do superarched heels,” she says. “All the shoes I design have a cushion and a platform.”  Sunglasses and comfy heels? We can handle that. Tell us: What’s your most important accessory? –Kim Peiffer
