Nicole Richie shows off her implants in Antonio Berardi: cute or busted?


I think we generally have to give Nicole Richie a lot of credit for turning her life around. I mean, at one point she was as annoying (or even more so) than Paris Hilton. But she managed to get clean and become a wife and mother and have a seemingly stable life and now she’s a productive member of society, and people root for her and actually like her. But besides all of that, I think we should also give Nicole credit for knowing her own body and for understanding what looks good on her. Yes, I get tired of the hippie crap and the boho trend is over. But when Nicole really tries, she looks great.

So it was at the ACE Awards two nights ago. Nicole was there, she was wearing this sleek, pretty, clean Antonio Berardi gown, and she was showing off her recent breast implants. This is the first good look I’ve had at them in a low-cut gown, and I have to say… they look really good. These are not wonky, mismatched LeAnn Rimes-style bolt-ons. Nicole’s implants look appropriate on her frame and she went for a modest size. I’m thinking she’s a B-cup now, which is probably close to what she was before she had her babies and nursed her boobs away (that was the reasoning Nicole gave to friends).

I also think she’s darkened her blonde, right? It was a rather garish “California blonde” but it’s looking darker these days. I’m still not loving the too-long bangs, but it looks like she’s trying to grow them out. *fingers crossed*

    those are damn near perfect implants. her surgeon is an artist. LOL

    i would love to know what she uses on her skin. it’s always glowing and so clear and even-toned.

  2. Samigirl says:

    Her breasts look great! I don’t mind implants, but the big cartoon ones are ridiculous *cough*wewe*cough* Subtle is ok, ladies!

  3. samira677 says:

    This reminds me of Kate Hudson. Everybody claims she had implants yet I can’t tell. If Nicole got implants she got the smallest ones made because she doesn’t look different. Any fullness could the result of a bra or chicken cutlets.

  4. gee says:

    When she does it right, she does it RIGHT. She looks amazing.

  5. Judy says:

    Yes, those are implants (I know)…they look great…she looks great. And I also hate huge implants.

  6. Agnes says:

    You meant “These AREN’T wonky, mismatched…”, right? :)

  7. brin says:

    LOL @Samigirl…I agree! She looks great and she really has come a long way.

  8. RocketMerry says:

    Oh, please, she did not “lose her breasts” over breastfeeding.
    She was NOT this full before, and whatever amount of breast fat she lost, she lost it to gym and diet.

  9. teehee says:

    Nice… Ive always considered implants but have hated how obviously fake and oversized most womens’ are. But if I had it done, this is the route I would go too– there is nothing more beautiful than a natural breast and coming closest to that in an implant is a dream come true

  10. Jules says:

    Wow, nice job! They look ‘rill’!

  11. Tierra says:

    Im not noticing implants at all so they must have been done very well. I think she looks great.

  12. ruby says:

    That dress is very pretty. She looks nice and put together. Good for her.

  13. nandynic says:

    She looks amazing! Love the dress, fits her perfectly and is very classy. She really has come along way and it shows in every way. By the way, I love the bangs and hope the Boho look never goes away, it’s so relaxed and fun!

  14. jamie says:

    She looks wonderful. I like the boobs AND the bangs.

  15. Nanea says:

    If only all implants looked as natural as these!

    Nicole seems to be in a good place now.

  16. Miss says:

    She looks amazing!

  17. kwanitaka says:

    Remember when she was an ugly little girl with pop eyes and deep cirlces? Amazing the perfect work she has done!

  18. Jag says:

    She looks amazing! Very pretty. I wish we could learn who these incredible surgeons are, so that they would be available to the general public to get such fabulous work. :)

  19. Dominique says:

    I don’t like this look at all. It ages her. When I think of Nicole Richie and fashion I think of something a little more fun and edgy than this.

  20. Joe's Mom says:

    Yep, she looks great! And as @Agnes said, you must mean these “AREN’T” the same type of boobs you described LeAnn as having.

  21. Abby says:

    She looks stunning. Her implants look very natural and are in perfect proportion to her tiny frame. I’m really liking the long bangs on her. She has come a long way and I applaud her efforts.

  22. theaPie says:

    Those are the type I went for, and I’ve never been happier. Plus I went with silicone for a natural feel. Guys can’t even tell I have implants.

  23. LeManda says:

    I’ve got deflated boobs from nursing too. Not that it wasn’t worth it but if I could have natural full breast like this I would totally do it too!

  24. Original Chloe ) says:

    If they’re implants, they look natural enough.

  25. ladybert62 says:

    I like the color of her hair and the style (yes the bangs also).

    I am sick of looking at dresses with boobs hanging out of them – even somewhat classy dresses like this.

  26. sharylmj says:

    that’s what surrounding yourself with good people and staying on the right track looks like!! She is beautiful, and it’s so nice to see a success story, not many of them out there.. GOOD JOB Nicole!!!

  27. Kate says:

    Breastfeeding has absolutely ruined my already-small breasts. I commend her for doing this, post-babies. I wish I had the money to do the same thing.

  28. dahlia1947 says:

    They look good, but how do we know that they’re implants? Are there others pics floating around?

  29. Criss says:

    She looks good, not too big and plastic looking. But she still inserted silicone sacks into her healthy little chest for the sake of beauty. I speak from experience, it changes everything from how you sleep, exercise, have sex etc.. anyone who says it doesn’t is lying. The smaller you go the easier it is though. I’m hoping she didn’t do it.

  31. Violet says:

    The implants look very natural. That said, I think it’s a shame she got them — I always thought she and Kate Hudson were comfortable with their small breasts, so it’s a shame they felt so insecure they got surgical intervention.

  32. lucy2 says:

    She looks really good.
    Amazing, the difference between her and Parasite now.

  33. Camille says:

    Yes it *is* amazing how Nicole has over-hauled her image. I still don’t care for her though. Nicole becoming a mother hasn’t made me like her more, that is too shallow a reason to give someone a pass/like them.

    She does look great here, best she has looked in a while.

  34. Happy21 says:

    I’m not a huge fan of hers but I’m glad that she didn’t go crazy with her implants because with her money it would have been easy.

    My sister has a friend who was tiny and got small implants so that now she has something.

    I never really understood why woment would go that route but I’ve always had a larger bust so could never understand what it would feel like to be flat chested. But then I cut my hair. I felt like a boy, I felt unfeminine and ugly, like I looked butch. I was then told by my sister and a friend that was how they felt flat chested. I see now why women get them. Of course, getting little ones that aren’t obvious is the better way to go because huge ones look silly. A size 2 looks pretty out of proportion with DDs!

  35. Bee says:

    Happy 21: I am glad that you are now able to empathize with a lot of other women out there. I was always pretty proud of my boobs- until I had two babies and lost my boobs but still kept the baby weight…… I now feel very unsexy. I cover up my boobs (what is left of them) in front of my husband and make love with the lights off. I am now completely inhibited. Now I too have a slight feeling of what it must be like for women who lost their boobs to breast cancer. Kudos to Nicole Richie; if her implants make her feel more like a woman and more beautiful, good for her. I would get my old boobs back in a heartbeat if I could afford it.

  36. Turtle Dove says:

    Remember when Paris was “it” and Nicole was the tag along? Now Paris is old news and Nicole is still chugging along and has supportive comments posted about her and a successful accessory range.

  37. Mingy says:

    very pretty. i love the dress.

  38. ... says:

    I don’t understand some of the comments vehement hate over implants. I have them and mine don’t look cartoonish (nor do they feel fake).It should be an extremely well thought out major surgery. She obviously did her research, waited until the right time when she was more mature and went for it. I wish more women had the sense to think things through. I have actually had women tell me that I “paid too much” for my surgery before they brag about paying “only 3,000$”. Sigh.

  39. april says:

    She’s too thin so the new breasts look obviously fake.

  40. Vera says:

    She looks good. I really love that dress. Her bangs are so-so. In some of the shots they looks nice, but I think from straight on they don’t look as good. Her implants look great. I don’t have issue with plastic surgery unless it is overused/done to make them look like plastic dolls.

  42. Isa says:

    I want them! This is the kind of implants I want!

  43. Riri says:

    I don’t think she is a “wife”, but she is a mother.

    She wasn’t married when she had her first child and now she is either divorced/ seperated.

    She did change her image 180 degrees…

    She added low-lights to her hair, which is very pretty, but how is it always so straight?

    She used to have curls, so I am wondering what does she use to create that sleek and sophisticated style?

    A cream?
    A hair-sylists every day?

    She is a mother, so I am assuming she found some way that doesn’t take too much of her time…

  44. Callumna says:

    Fake body parts are unnecessary, weird and gross.

    Very Amy Winehouse. Both just should have got some mental help to quit starving their poor bodies. Then the lovely real breasts emerge.

  45. ShanKat says:

    She had her base color warmed up. It’s gorgeous and I hate her guts.

    436 N. Bedford’s own Dr. Garth Fisher…Second-best boobies in L.A.

  46. SamiHami says:

    @riri-divorced or separated? When did that happen? I don’t remember reading about her splitting with her husband.

  47. PandaBear says:

    @ShanKat — who has the best boobies in LA ?? ?? ?? !!

  48. Nicole says:

    Just how old is she supposed to be, still in her 20s? She looks like an old granma. Ugly smile and never shows her teeth. Wonder why….googly eyes, looks like a troll.

  49. Ashley says:

    Oh, Kaiser…you and bangs. IMO, her long forehead definitely needs those bangs (or the thick side swept ones she used to have). I only consider her to be pretty with them.

  50. Alix says:

    You can still tell they’re fake, but because she wisely chose an appropriately small size, they look damn good. Well done.

  51. hebrokemyheart says:

    nicole richie is amazing. shes so strong and funny. ever since she got sober its clear she has an amazing innate fashion sense. i think shes so cute i adore her.

  52. A Fan says:

    I’m so disappointed. She was one of the few remaining without fake tits.

  53. Sue says:

    Are there such a thing as classy breasts? She didn’t go over the top, look very natural, and perfect for her fame. They look great and so does she.

  54. ShanKat says:

    #1 best boobies is Brian Novack on Wilshire.

  55. J.Mo says:

    they looked best in the first shots that surfaced of her in a bikini. I’m concerned they look a little dented or wavy in the cleavage? or could in time. Good choice in size so I hope they stay okay.

  56. Kimberly says:

    So glad she gave up the “Tacky Caly” blonde hair

    Her boobs look good

    Growing out bangs is a bitch and timely

    all in all she’s going great!

  57. Ella says:

    Something doesn’t look right with the boob on the right.

  58. beanie says:

    Nicole is still married and had an amazing wedding. I am so proud of her and how she moved away from her wild days and eating disorders to a fabulous business woman, Mommy and wife. Go Nicole!

  59. kristine says:

    pregnancy stretches out your breasts not nursing. They were already stretched when you carried the baby. so if you choose not to nurse you may still never recover your full shape.
