Nicole Richie attended the 2011 Environmental Media Awards at the Warner Bros. Studios in Burbank last Saturday.

The American fashion designer, author, actress, and television personality wore this pretty ruffled mini dress paired with Neil Lane jewelry, a House of Harlow 1960 Tilda box clutch, and Christian Louboutin ‘Luxura’ ankle strap platform pumps:

She is wearing many interesting jewelry pieces, but let’s focus on what caught our attention the most. Of course, that’s none other than that sparkling diamond-encrusted beaded bangle on her right wrist:

It looks attractive, heavy, and mighty expensive. But if that multi-bead (each one encrusted with diamonds) design isn’t a statement-making piece of jewelry, I don’t know what is!

The mustard yellow color is made for fall, but we can only think about the summer’s bright sunshine when we look at Nicole in this dress. Mustard yellow brings out the blondness of Nicole’s hair color and complements the warm tones of her tan skin.

Now, if only we could do something about that too-heavy black eyeliner… Nicole’s dress is this ‘Lost Without You’ dress from Keepsake:

The cutout detail at the waist is what makes this dress. Without it, this dress would be like any other ruffled mini dress.
