Nicole Richie Gets Daring in a Sheer Floral Gown at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards

Nicole Richie took the stage tonight at the 2020 Billboard Music Awards in a daring design.

The television personality wowed the virtual crowds in a black, one-shoulder sheer tulle gown complete with three-dimensional floral adornments and a peek-a-boo side cutout to tout; the design came from Christian Siriano in a style he called “petals.”

She completed the ensemble with black platform sandals that peeped out from under the floor-sweeping train of the design.
