It's hard to believe this modern figure of fashion supremacy once wore Uggs and bandanas on the red carpet. Today, Nicole sticks to boho-glam looks and has a keen sense for elegant accessorizing. Heck, she even has two clothing lines based on her refined aesthetic—Winter Kate and The Nicole Richie Collection for QVC.

So let's delve into the dark fashion past of this renowned sartorial maven. Take a look at these before and after photos, you're sure to be flabbergasted.
