My Secret Life: Nicole Richie

My parents were... and still are, my inspiration. My mum has been a big influence. I remember sitting in her bathtub while she would be getting ready for the Grammy Awards - or whatever event she was going to - and I'd watch her get dressed and think her fashion sense was so cool.

Party of the Week: Kicking about at the Emirates

Meg Mathews took her daughter Anais Gallagher and Jude Law's daughter Iris to the Capital 95.8 FM Summertime Ball at London's Emirates Stadium, where they were seen dancing and eating candyfloss. The snazzy VIP hospitality area, for 1,200 invitation-only guests, had its own private entrance, designed like a giant radio with speakers. It was reached through a hall of fame tunnel, with moving images of all the performers, including Katy Perry and Dizzee Rascal, who were taking part in the mini pop festival.
