Have some extra cash to burn? You might want to join this bevy of fashion-forward beauties and splurge on their fall-ready footwear.
Nicole Richie kicked off Fashion Week Wednesday night by essentially putting on a one-woman runway show. She hosted the 10th Annual Style Awards at Lincoln Center in New York City and had so many outfit changes that we got wardrobe whiplash. You’ve already seen the studded crop top and coordinating pants that she wore on the red carpet, but that’s just the tip of the style iceberg. Check out the (many) other looks she pulled off last night.
The ensembles included a silver Armani jumpsuit (if anyone could make a formal metallic onesie with a racy keyhole cutout work, it’s Richie) and a funkier, printed silk wrap dress by ETRO that she paired with a gold statement necklace.
Next up: Richie added two gorgeous dresses to the mix. One was a gold-and-black striped V-neck dress and the other, a vibrant orange number featuring ruching on the torso from Azzaro’s Resort 2014 collection.
But her outfits weren’t the only thing being changed; she also switched up her hair. A lot. She rocked a bob, a bun and a long, curled ponytail (ah, hair extensions, you never cease to amaze us).
Which of the four looks do you like best?

Tricky dressing pop quiz: What’s three steps above a basic blue jean but a smidge less risky than printed PJ trousers? If you guessed striped pants, you’re right — and they’re right on trend. Some of Hollywood’s most trendsetting style stars have been wearing these bold bottoms in the past few weeks.
We admire Nicole Richie’sability to wear everything from a jumpsuit and a bralette to spray-painted silver hair and a beaded gown, but there’s one person who prefers when she keeps it simple: her husband.
“I have found that men don’t like too many bells and whistles,” the star tells PEOPLE, noting what husband Joel Madden does or doesn’t like about her style. “They’re not into hats or red lipstick. They’re more drawn to simplicity … and a short skirt. Shocker.”
“Take risks because that’s what makes it fun,” she shares. “Fashion is the ultimate form of self-expression. [Using] different fabrics and constructions, it’s all part of this game of dress up that we, on some level, are all playing.”
Experimentation with clothes started at a young age for Richie, thanks in part to her dad, Lionel, who took her to the Grammys for what she says is her most memorable red carpet moment. “I was 4 years old [a year younger than her daughter Harlow is now] and my father’s costume designer made me a dress out of the excess fabric of one of his stage costumes,” Richie explains. “It’s safe to say I stole the show that year.”

Don’t believe us? The star shared her most memorable mishap with Teen Vogue at last night’s CFDA Awards.
“The second I started getting hair in the middle of my eyebrows, I decided to shave it off,” she shares. “But by shaving it off, I actually went to the middle of my eyebrow, so I had no eyebrows. I only had the ends of my eyebrow. That was nice. That was fun.”
And even worse, she couldn’t make do with a little makeup. “I didn’t pencil it in because I wasn’t old enough. I was only 13. So my mom didn’t take any pictures of me,” she went on. “That was really comforting. It was a really nice experience.”
The star is one of many who talked to Teen Vogue about their high school fashion (or lack thereof) and adolescent missteps. Richie herself says “I don’t think I had a strong sense of who I was back then,” admitting to being inpsired by Punky Brewster, Clarissa Darling and Nirvana.
