Nicole Richie loves musicians' style.

The 30-year-old designer - who has children Harlow, four, and Sparrow, three, with rocker husband Joel Madden - thinks artists such as Florence + the Machine's Florence Welch and Rolling Stones guitarist Keith Richards are able to be more adventurous with their fashion choices.

When asked whose style she is a fan of, she replied: ''Florence Welch. I'm always fond of musicians' style because they can really go there.

''I love Keith Richards' style.''

Nicole added that another favourite trend of hers is Kate Hudson's ''west coast, free spirit'' look.

The 30-year-old beauty also admitted to being a hoarder, but insisted it wasn't intentional.

Emptying her handbag out for Harper's Bazaar's The Look and revealing eight pairs of sunglasses, an Eres bikini bag and two sets of hair pins, she explained: ''It's nothing on purpose, it's just that I rarely switch bags!

''If I do I'll just put a bag in another bag because I don't have time. Over time they just build up.''

And Nicole also revealed her favourite-ever red carpet outfit.

She said: ''One of the dresses that stands out to me the most is this costume Chanel dress - it was brown, like a brown rope gown.''
