After parting ways with Sarah Jessica Parker earlier this year, it seems Halston is on the lookout for a new celebrity face. And it just might have found it in Nicole Richie.
The socialite and former reality TV star is probably incredibly busy designing her Winter Kate and House of Harlow 1960 lines, not to mention her forthcoming collection for QVC. And then there are her domestic roles as wife and mother to her two adorable tots. But if anyone can add something else to their already crowded plate it's Nicole Richie.
A source says Halston wants "someone with Nicole's fashion credentials." It's also said to be impressed that Richie has been a longtime support of the label. She even wore a Halston gown to the launch of one of her own fashion labels last week. The source also added that Richie is keen to create a capsule collection with Halston, so perhaps we'll see her becoming more than simply a face and figurehead. It seems like a waste taking someone with Richie's creative talents on board without designing a few special items with them, doesn't it?
Before we get too excited let's remember that these words all come from an anonymous source, who may or may not know anything. I'm hopeful about the potential of Nicole Richie working with Halston, but I won't hold my breath.
