Nicole Richie looked stunning at the 40th Annual FiFi Awards
's penchant for cool 'dos and sultry smoky eyes was on full display at the 40th Annual Fifi Awards on Monday. She created quite a stir when she paired her glamorous retro-inspired styling with this unique Emilio Pucci
"mullet" dress from the spring 2012 collection.
The gown, embellished with beading and sequins, featured long sleeves, an empire waist and a lengthy train. However, the striking black number didn't overpower the her petite frame. The look was completed with classic black pumps and a simple box clutch from Nicole's own House of Harlow.
The real show-stopping element, though, was Nicole's fabulous updo. The style combined elements of a retro-inspired bouffant with an interesting textured twist and her signature lash-grazing bangs. Heavy gunmetal gray eyeshadow, lots of black liner and mascara and soft peachy-nude lipstick finished her sexy '60s vibe.
