Nicole Richie Arrives at VMAs in Punk Princess Puffy Green Mini-dress and Bright Pumps

Nicole Richie made an appearance at last night’s Video Music Awards, arriving on the virtual red carpet in a bright green taffeta mini-dress designed by Cong Tri. The puffy dress was designed with a flowing sash which wrapped around one of Richie’s shoulders and trailed on the ground behind her.

“The Simple Life” star, who presented at the event, topped off the punk princess-look with her signature crown and a pair of dagger shaped silver earrings and bangle bracelets.


“Representing ALL the greens tonight 🥬🥒🥦🌱🍏🥑#NikkiFresh @vmas,” Richie captioned her Instagram post.

Her post referenced her latest rap album “Unearthed” which she released earlier this week. The album is a socially conscious effort to encourage environmentalism with songs centered around saving the bees and buying organic produce.

This summer, Richie’s spent time coordinating outfits with her sister, 22-year-old model Sofia. To celebrate Sofia’s birthday earlier this month, the two siblings lounged in matching boho-inspired sweatpants paired with woven slide slippers.
