Nicole Richie needs no help getting into the holiday spirit.
When the holiday card photoshoot at Richie Madden’s home is forgotten, only the head of the household knows how to salvage the situation.
The fashion designer and former reality star, 40, decided to shine for her celebratory photoshoot, wearing a stunning gold gown and posing solo without husband Joel Madden, 42, daughter Harlow, 13, and son Sparrow, 12.
Richie snapped some stunning photos wearing a gold pleated Oscar de la Renta dress with long sleeves, a puffy skirt and matching pumps. She honestly commented on Instagram, “My family forgot to take a picture on vacation this year…but I didn’t.”
The star’s friends loved her serious style of handling the annual family holiday card. “Exactly as it should be,” Jennifer Garner commented. “Always amazing,” added Zoe Saldana.
“Head intuition 🔥🔥🔥🔥” said Richie’s younger sister Sofia Richie.

Earlier this fall, Richie opened up to people about her passion for the holiday season, including how soon she’s starting decorating their homes. “We go big during the holidays. And by the holidays, I mean, the first of October,” she joked.
“The decorations come out and then I have the Thanksgiving boxes, and then I do Christmas the day after Thanksgiving is over,” Ritchie added. “So, let’s go really great here. “
The star said spending time with family makes the season extra special. “I do something with my friends as adults, and then my kids like to do teenage things with their friends and they don’t want us here, so now it’s two separate events.”
“The holidays are my favorite time of the year,” Ritchie continued. “It really takes its place, but I love it.”
