Nicole Richie Fashion Blog: Nicole at the Oscars 2010

Nicole Richie and her fiancé Joel Madden looked gorgeous on the red carpet together at the 2010 Oscars, held at the Kodak Theatre on Sunday, March 7, in Los Angeles.

Miss Richie glowed in a Reem Acra gown.

She accessorized with a Judith Leiber clutch, Bally shoes and jewelry by Lorraine Schwartz.

Cat-eye make-up, a ladylike updo and a pinch of pink on her lips and cheeks completed her look.


In Nicole's closet: Zac Posen

Nicole Richie photographed on the red carpet at the Montblanc charity cocktail party hosted by The Weinstein Company, on March 6, in Los Angeles.

Nicole looked breathtaking wearing a Zac Posen spring 2008 royal blue gown.


Tips on How to Rock a Big Oscar Bun

TREND: Big Buns

WHO'S WEARING IT: Mo'Nique, Nicole Richie, Sarah Jessica Parker

HOW TO WEAR IT: The key to pulling off the pulled back 'dos we saw at the Oscars is to keep it simple says Joseph Chase, hairstylist at the Argyle Salon & Spa. So that means no dramatic flowers like the Best Supporting actress winner—or a massive "overdone" SJP bun.

When copying the style at home, channel Nicole and start off with a smoothing serum for sleek shine. Once your hair is pulled back and set, don't forget the hairspray. It's important to choose a product that's workable to avoid that awful crunchy look. When Joseph was creating updos for Oscar parties yesterday, he used Oribe Superfine Hair Spray ($29), which he says creates a flawless finish.


Crystal Cuffs: Stack 'Em and Sparkle

TREND: Sparkling cuffs

WHO'S WEARING IT: Keep reading to find out!

HOW TO WEAR IT: Forget delicate diamonds. Celebrities at the Oscars added edge to their glittering gowns with chunky cuffs, many stacked right on top of each other. Fill your arm with a wrist full of bangles to shine on your next date. Just remember to get a mani! All that bling will draw attention to your hands, and chipped nails aren't exactly a turn-on.


Beautiful Brushstrokes: Celebs Get Painted at the Oscars

TREND: Artistic Prints

WHO'S WEARING IT: Maggie Gyllenhaal (Dries van Noten) and Rachel McAdams (Elie Saab)

HOW TO WEAR IT: The painterly trend just won't seem to go away—and that's certainly not a bad thing. It just means that when you invest in art, you can wear it season after season. We especially love the cool colored prints seen at the 82nd Annual Academy Awards. Follow Maggie and Rachel's lead and tie your hair back, then accessorize with minimal crystals and diamonds so you don't distract from the brushstrokes.
