Perhaps now the poster child of the massive “boho chic” trend, birthday girl Nicole Richie hasn’t always been so glam. Her days palling around with Paris Hilton not only led to plenty of debauchery, but dread-like colorful extensions to boot. After a scary thin streak in her mid-20s, Richie found her hubby Joel Madden and motherhood has treated her well since. Kids Harlow and Sparrow have inspired a healthy lifestyle, permanent glow and icon-status style. Check out the dramatic transformation of Nicole Richie below.
