Nicole Richie is a Creative Director, actress, entrepreneur, writer, producer, and philanthropist. Born and raised in Los Angeles, Richie was surrounded by art, music and costumes, helping her foster her artistic expression in many forms.

She is the creator and Creative Director of House of Harlow 1960 collection, which offers ready-to-wear, jewelry, eyewear, footwear, and handbags. An internationally recognized brand, the line is available in over 50 countries. Richie created another mass brand called Honey Minx, consisting of home, loungewear, headwraps, jewelry, accessories and beauty products.

Richie rose to prominence for her role in the Fox reality television series, “The Simple Life,” alongside Paris Hilton, which lasted five seasons. In 2017, Richie starred in her first regular series as Portia in the NBC Sitcom, “Great News”, produced by Tracey Wigfield and Tina Fey. Most recently, she appeared in HBO’s “Camping” and Netflix’s “Grace and Frankie.”

Richie partnered with Telepictures Productions in 2013 to bring her unfiltered sense of humor and unique perspective to life in an AOL web series called "#CandidlyNicole." The hit series was based on her Twitter feed and has garnered over 25 million views online. VH1 picked up the web series and turned it into a weekly television series in which Nicole served as an executive producer.

Aside from creating, Richie spends much of her time working with The Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation (RMCF) launched in December 2007 and serves as an Angel Board Member for Baby2Baby. Richie also serves on the board of the Environmental Media Association, and supports other charities including Young Musicians Fund, The Art of Elysium and The Race to Erase MS. She was honored by A Place Called Home for her philanthropic efforts.

In 2005, Richie wrote & released a New York Times best-selling book for Harper Collins called The Truth About Diamonds and later released her second novel entitled Priceless in 2010. She has also appeared on UPN’s “Eve” and “Rock Me Baby,” HBO’s “Six Feet Under”, NBC’s “Chuck”, Bravo’s “Project Runway” and NBC’s “American Dreams” as Brenda Reid, the lead singer of The Exciters.
