Nicole Richie bigs up clothing range

Nicole Richie wants her new maternity clothing line to “make women look good at a really emotional time”.

The Simple Life star – who gave birth to first child, daughter Harlow, with fiancé Joel Madden in January – wants women to feel good about their changing body throughout their pregnancy.

She said: “My line will be about making women look and feel good at a really emotional time. It’s about showing your best self, not your tired, worn-down self.”

Nicole – who recently revealed she hates her post-baby curves because her enlarged breasts made her feel “sl***y” – also said she raided Good Charlotte rocker Joel’s wardrobe for clothes to cover her ever-expanding bump.

She added: “I wore so much Balenciaga during my pregnancy. But when my shirts got too short, I wore Joel’s with a jacket on top.”

The 26-year-old star’s line – which will feature clothes for all stages of the pregnancy – is expected to launch later this year.
