Nicole Richie gave Vogue a lesson in SoCal vintage style. Crowned as a contemporary "Lady of the Canyon" by Lynn Yaeger, Richie explains that her vintage love affair began when she was a child, handed "stacks of eighties Chanel bags and Alaïa skirts" by her mother. Closet treasures include a variety of Pucci dresses ("they fit me like a glove. I am attracted to color—I don't get a lot of black pieces"), Hermès jewelry ("I've been collecting jewelry for as long as I remember—House of Harlow started with jewelry") and thousands of sunglasses ("I like options").
