Nicole Richie gets her own QVC clothing line

nicole-richie-getty.jpgRemember when Nicole Richie was Paris Hilton's sidekick? Yeah. Those days are long gone. The erstwhile reality TV star turned designer is expanding her fashion empire with a new collection of clothes for QVC.

"The line is cute -- it can be worn by teeny-tiny girls but also goes up to size XXXL," a source tells Us magazine. "Nicole has a great fashion sense, and she's very hands-on."

The 30-year-old Richie already has two fashion lines -- House of Harlow and Winter Kate -- and has signed on as a mentor in NBC's upcoming "Fashion Star." In her spare time, Richie -- along with husband Joel Madden -- is raising two children, Harlow Winter Kate (3) and Sparrow James (2).

Her House of Harlow brand includes jewelry, sunglasses, handbags, perfume and apparel and is available at high-end department stores, including Bergdorf Goodman and Neiman-Marcus. In 2009, Richie also teamed with A Pea in the Pod to create a line of maternity clothing.
