Well this is unexpected.
At Saturday night's LACMA gala Nicole Richie ditched her retro glam style for something more high fashion.
The designing mother of two surprisingly wore a gray gown from Marchesa's fall 2009 collection and we're kinda torn about it.
We want to like it, but it's so not Nicole's style. Maybe if it didn't have that black ribbon on it she'd look like she wasn't trying too hard.
What do U think???
