Socialite Nicole Richie and her husband Joel Madden have similar tastes when it comes to fashion. The couple both chose their wardrobes from high-end designer Dolce and Gabbana as they attended the 2013 LACMA Art+Film Gala at the Los Angeles County Museum in Los Angeles, California on November 2, 2013.

Nicole was rocking the sheer trend – one of the hottest of the season. But that wasn’t the only thing working in favour of her grey fishtail evening gown from D&C’s Fall 2007 Collection. Yes, it may be years old, but its timelessness and trend status were incredible.
There was a lot going on on the embellishment front – bead work, sequins across the upper bust, hips and hemline, a statement neckline. Really, this dress was all about integrated bling. The whole thing was sheer, her modesty protected by a deep grey leotard underneath. That let the sheer be apparent on the full sleeves, and the floor-length skirt.

Finally, don’t miss the feather detailing around the cuffs of her sleeves, adding even more drama to the already effusive ensemble.
There wasn’t much needed in the bling department with a dress like that. So she kept things simple with stud earrings. Heels and a steel grey box clutch from the House of Harlow were her only other accessories.

Her outfit wasn’t the only thing making waves. She wore a hairdo that was just as red carpet worthy as the rest of her. Her ash blonde locks were styled in a sleek high fishtail braid. Just like a regular fishtail braid but fashioned out of a top knot. A stunning variation on the well-loved hairstyle that we really hope we’ll see more of. Kohl-rimmed peepers completed her look.
Hubby Joel may not have been as festive as his petite wife, but he looked dapper in an all-black pantsuit with a black shirt, black tie, black shoes and black sun glasses.
