You know you’re wearing one helluva statement pair of earrings when it’s what people are talking about despite your top knot, animal-printed backless dress, AND fire engine red stilettos.

That’s exactly what Nicole Richie wore to the NBC “Fashion Star” event at the H&M flagship store in NYC, and as always, the petite fashion plate brought her big style game:

These earrings give just the right amount of push to take Nicole Richie’s look to the edge, don’t they? And we can’t emphasize enough how the fang studs are the perfect complement to that tiger-print dress!
