Nicole Richie To Launch Maternity Collection

US starlet Nicole Richie, currently in the third trimester of her second pregnancy with fiance Joel Madden, is to launch a range of maternity clothes.

Richie is the girl we can all thank for the "lollipop lady" style phenomenon of a few years ago. You know the look; body so emaciated that the head looks massive and the overall effect is totally lollipop. It was usually accessorised with outsized sunglasses and a handbag big enough to sleep in, just to make sure Richie looked teeny-tiny.

Well, pregnancy is certainly not another ploy to make Richie look tiny, and we're kinda hoping the maternity range, created in association with A Pea In The Pod, won't be aiming to slim down the silhouette either, to use fashion speak.

Richie's more recent look is the "drowned in maxi-dress" style, perfect for accommodating the bump. Bets are on that the capsule range contains more than a few variations on this favourite.If you want to keep an eye on exactly when the range is available, check in to Richie's blog for updates. You'll find some cute pics of first daughter 17-month-old Harlow, plus a link to a "Moms with great style" community.

Meanwhile, a quick shufty around A Pea In The Pod has thrown up (and not in a morning sickness kind of way) a few decent designer maternity finds, if you're that way inclined. Head over there for Citizens Of Humanity, 7 For All Mankind and True Religion maternity jeans, Elle McPherson maternity bras and Diana von Furstenburg maternity tops.
