Nicole Richie is marking her territory!
"The Simple Life" alum recently spoke of her 13-year-old daughter's fashion sense, and it seems that the teen gets a lot of inspiration from her mom's closet. While chatting with Entertainment Tonight, Nicole said Harlow Winter Kate, whom she shares with husband Joel Madden, consistently swipes clothes right out of her closet, forcing the fashion designer to physically mark clothes that belong to her.
"…my daughter loves fashion, but she has her own style. It doesn't have anything to do with me. She takes my clothes all the time," Nicole says. "I have just started writing an N with a Sharpie on all of my stuff so that [she knows it's mine]."
"She's wearing my current clothes now, she's just like, 'What do you have? That's what I want. I'm taking it,'" Nicole continued. "And then I got to go in her closet, steal it back."
Harlow obviously has her own personality, as does Nicole and Joel's 11-year-old son Sparrow, 11. Still, Nicole, 39, isn't interested in seeing her kids on reality TV just yet.
Comparing her gig on "The Simple Life" in the mid-aughts to reality TV now, Nicole said, "I think it would be a different thing going into it now, it just depends on what it is."
The "House of Harlow" founder insisted that she would keep an open mind if her kids wanted to dabble in reality TV, but she also maintains that that's off the table until they're adults.
"If they're 18 and they want to go do whatever it is, as long as it feels good and authentic to them, I'm fine with it," she said.
Interestingly, Nicole doubts that "The Simple Life" would work these days.
"I think it would be hard now because we're older and we have traveled and we have been everywhere. So, I think that concept was so great because you were able to take people's phones away for a month," she said. "I think if you took someone's phone away right now, you'd have to have a therapist on site and make sure they were OK. No one's trying to deal with all that, including me. So, I think it would be such a different thing."
