Happy birthday, Nicole Richie! The talented fashion designer, author, entrepreneur, reality television star, and mom (whew!), turns 35 today.

The hilarious daughter to famed crooner, Lionel Richie, is no stranger to reality TV; we first got to know and appreciate her sense of humor more than a decade ago on The Simple Life, which she appeared in with socialite Paris Hilton, and starred in two seasons of VH1's Candidly Nicole, where she dispensed her uncensored—and often unsolicited—tongue-in-cheek commentary to anyone who crosses her path.

Since her television debut, Richie's been blazing trails and making a name as House of Harlow's founder and chief designer. We've admired her signature boho-meets-rock 'n roll glam street style over the years, especially as it relates to her daring 'dos. Never one to shy away from color, Richie has kept her fans guessing with a kaleidoscope of bold hues that always manages to flatter her unique looks.
