Nicole Richie Takes House of Harlow to Toronto

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Yesterday we saw her heading up to Canada, and this afternoon Nicole Richie was spotted at Holt Renfrew on Bloor Street in Toronto promoting the launch of her House of Harlow 1960 jewelry line.

The “Simple Life” cutie looked amazing as she posed for the paparazzi, sporting a hippie-chic black and gold sweater dress with black stockings and black heels.

Besides being a socialite and designer, Nicole has really dug into social justice issues, and she’s the latest celebrity to join the Hollywood brigade appealing for international action with the current rape crisis in the Congo.

Miss Richie put a video on her website, saying, "I am about to tell you a story about a place where babies and grandmothers are being raped on a daily basis and the reason they are being raped is directly connected to the purchases of our cell phones, of our laptops and of our ipods," referring to the civil war going on, and the funding being received for raw materials used in our electronic devices.
