Nicole Richie Lets Her Daughter Spend 20 Minutes Choosing An Outfit! Would You Let Your 2-Year-Old Do That?

Nicole Richie's fashionable mini-me Harlow is only 2½ but she spends 20 minutes shuffling through her wardrobe in the morning! Nicole Richie, the mom of Harlow, and Sparrow, 1, dishes in the new issue of InStyle UK about her little girl's devotion to fashion, her regret over her tattoos and the less attractive aspects of pregnancy. “Being pregnant with Harlow was easy. I was wearing heels for eight months," says Nicole, "I never got sick and I was like, ‘Oh, what are people talking about?’ But with Sparrow, I was so sick. And my feet were swelling. They were polar opposite pregnancies.”

Maybe it was all that time that Mommy spent prancing around in high heels while pregnant that gave Harlow her love of fashion! The 28-year-old says, “She picks her own clothes. It’s a 20-minute thing – it begins at 7.30 each morning – but it is what it is and it’s fine.” Sounds like Harlow is a budding fashionista, but let’s hope she doesn’t follow in her mom’s footsteps when it comes to body art!

Nicole says she regrets a few of her nine tattoos. “I’m a Virgo and the sign is a virgin. So when I was 16, I got the word virgin tattooed on my wrist, thinking I was sooo deep and cool. And now I just look really weird having virgin written across my wrist and I have to explain it,” reveals Nicole.

But the daughter of singer Lionel Richie takes full responsibility for her bad decisions, whether it’s unwanted ink or drug problems and rehab. She says, “People ask me, do I blame Hollywood or my parents? No, I don’t blame my parents. It had nothing to do with them. I created it and manifested it and I got myself through it with the help of a lot of great people.”

We’re happy to see that Nicole has turned her life around — maybe she could give her former The Simple Life BFF Paris Hilton some tips! Check out the behind-the-scenes video from Nicole’s InStyle photo shoot below!
