Fashion plate Nicole Richie channeled old Hollywood glam at the 2013 Golden Globes in her powder blue, long-sleeved, embellished lace dress by Naeem Khan. It was a simple, floor-sweeping column silhouette, but all of the beautiful detailing jacked it up a notch. She was completely covered up, but still sexy.

To avoid looking dowdy, Richie matched her eye makeup to her periwinkle dress. She was a bit old-fashioned with her big, thick and old school waves, but she added a dash of modernity with a different accessory: her fringed clutch.

The bright, unexpected color and classic styling worked in concert with some edgy details create a classic and classy look for Richie.
