There will never be another time in fashion like the early 2000s, and Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie were the queens of early-aughts style on their hit show The Simple Life. I’ve started rewatching the show on Hulu, and all I have to say is that their outfits will take you *way back* in the best way possible. I’ve even found myself singing, “Ms. Hilton, you must be worth a trillion bucks,” over and over again. (In case you’re not aware, those are the lyrics from The Penfifteen Club’s “Ms. Hilton,” which plays multiple times throughout the show. It’s super catchy.) In every episode, we follow Paris and Nicole as they get jobs at places like farms and fast-food restaurants while traveling across the United States. Of course, they pack all of their designer duds and take ’em along for the ride.
The show is basically a time capsule of our favorite nostalgic fashion moments. Think Missoni headbands, Juicy tracksuits, Fendi Baguette bags, low-rise jeans, and so much more. If you think that the duo switch into something a bit more practical for the aforementioned tasks, think again. They pretty much wear heels and designer pieces the whole time, and we love them for it. Keep reading to see some of Paris and Nicole’s best style moments from The Simple Life ahead.
