Just as news hit that Nicole Richie was set to marry Joel Madden, a whole rumor mill began as to what the young, hot designer and socialite was set to wear on her wedding day. Among the designer names mentioned have been Marchesa and Hollywood wedding day favorite, Monique Lhuillier. Richie had attended the Marchesa show at New York Fashion Week last week, sparking speculation that she would choose the designer, who has received rave reviews for his gown for Sandra Bullock at this year’s Oscars.
But Nicole revealed to In Style earlier this week: “I have not decided on a dress. I haven’t even thought about it!” Richie has been busy enough as it is with the launch of her new fashion label, Winter Kate, as well as countless other promotions. And yet Nicole has wasted no time flaunting her new engagement ring. She was spotted wearing the four carat Neil Lane handmade diamond ring with pave settings at this week’s Missoni bash in Beverly Hills.
