california-style-Nicole-Ric.jpgNo wonder Nicole Richie has been busting her butt in the gym! She must have been gearing up for this sexy spread in California Style's "C" Magazine.

The 30-year-old actress, who is launching The Nicole Richie Collection by QVC, is showing off some of her designs in the fashion mag.

When asked about her collection, Richie said the following:

    “QVC is a well-oiled machine and to be in business with them is so exciting because it gives me an opportunity to design for a much broader range of women. I wanted you to be able to walk into your closet with your eyes closed and pick something special.”
