Nicole Richie Shows That the Celebrity-Mom-in-Distressed-Denim Battle Is Far from Over

Looks like the battle of distressed denims amongst celebrity moms is still far from over. This time, Nicole Richie shows us a thing or two about wearing frayed black denim shorts and how to style it up in a black-and-white palette. The 31-year-old mom-of-two was spotted along the streets of Hollywood on her way to meet some friends for lunch.

The former reality television star is back with her own online show featuring clips of her being Candidly Nicole. Her page, which is powered by AOL, features 5 minute videos of Nicole being, well, candid (though we have to admit that some of the episodes seem scripted, the girl is hilarious anyway). Her last one featured her doing a comical impromptu audition for Step Up 5.

Nicole wore her distressed denims with a striped tee from T by Alexander Wang, booties, sunnies, and a Balenciaga bag. Her shorts, promptly called the American Eagle Black Hi-Rise Festival Shortie, are made of soft stretch cotton denims. This high-waisted piece has allover destroyed details — perfect for dressing-down structured casual tops.
