Nicole Richie Walks in Beauty Wearing Donna Karan Atelier at the Met Gala

"Charles James: Beyond Fashion" Costume Institute Gala - Arrivals

If Lord Byron is still alive, Nicole Richie will be his muse! The multi-talented author and actress wore a Donna Karan Atelier custom-dyed Sage backless graphic devore velvet gown with tiny asymmetrical straps that criss-cross around the back.

Styled by Cher Coulter, she finished the look with Christian Louboutin shoes and jewelry from the House of Harlow 1960 and Catbird. And don’t forget her lavender hairdo!
