Who: Nicole Richie
Wearing: Diane Von Furstenberg’s Novesa Long Dress ($425)
Why This Works: Are you on the petite side but still want to take advantage of the long sundress trend this summer?

The style is classic, the cut is beautiful, and the dress is a great style statement for the new mom. If you're looking for a cool alternative for a summer function, take a cue from Ms. Richie's book on simplicity and you'll surely be the example of the simple life at your next function.
