These Big Fashion Mistakes Are The Reason We Love Nicole Richie's Style

We've all committed a fashion faux pas or two or three. But when a celebrity has a less than stellar moment on the red carpet, the whole world is there to witness the style blunder. So it's best to not take oneself too seriously, right?

Well that's exactly Nicole Richie's approach when it comes to her personal style. The "Candidly Nicole" star revealed to People magazine that taking risks trumps regretful feelings she might experience later.

“There’s no way you’re not going to look at yourself 10 years ago at any point and say, ‘Everything I did was just great and there’s nothing embarrassing,’” Richie told People. “You’re going to get embarrassed, so it’s really about experimenting and having fun and knowing that embarrassment is coming no matter what.”

But Richie, who helms two fashion lines, doesn't have much to be embarrassed about these days. The 32-year-old's personal style has evolved since starring on "The Simple Life," and her periwinkle-hued hair is simply stunning.

But let's take a trip down memory lane and see just how far Richie has come since the days of ripped denim short shorts. Check out some of her best "experiments" below.
