One source claims the 18-year-old was actually bullied for being there -- apparently not everyone thought she earned the right to walk the shows!
The insider spilled:
And she was on such a hawt streak, too.
Nicole Richie hosted the Nordstrom store opening gala at the Glendale Americana mall Tuesday night wearing one wild outfit!
Opting for a long-sleeve Jean Paul Gaultier turtleneck dress, we're actually surprised her petite frame wasn't drowning in that bold, floral print fabric.
That's no small feat. Ha!
To add some finishing touches, Nicole slicked her hair back into a chic bun and carried a black fringed clutch her own line, House of Harlow 1960.
All was good and well until we got to her Christian Louboutin leopard print lace-up flats!
Even they didn't want to come out from hiding under the dress!
What do U think of Nicole's print mixing???
