Nicole Richie helped Las Vegas ring in 2010 at LAVO Nightclub inside the Palazzo Hotel. Nicole and beau Joel Madden were on hand to celebrate with revelers. Richie, who has a jewelry collection and is launching clothing and shoe lines, wore a gold low backed dress of her own design – a custom piece from her collection Winter Kate.
The mother of two and burgeoning poker fan was excited to come to Vegas, but the couple didn’t want to be away from their kids for too long so they made the trip very quick. They flew in on Thursday and spent the day in the luxurious Sienna suite at The Palazzo, enjoying cupcakes from Sweet Surrender as well as an Italian feast in the private dining room at LAVO. As for New Year‘s Resolutions Nicole aims to be the best version of herself and “grow gracefully.” Richie took to the catwalk at LAVO two minutes before midnight and turned her own camera on the crowd, snapping shots to post on Twitter.
After counting down the last seconds of 2009 she joined Madden in the DJ booth as he spun a special set for the packed nightclub. The pair then headed back to the kids in Southern California right after Madden finished his DJ set at LAVO.
