Nicole Richie has been trying out a bold new fashion trend by wearing a pair of earrings that had been created to form a sharp point.

The former reality TV star has now made a name for herself as a fashion designer with her Winter Kate collection and Nicole showed she is not afraid to try out some of the boldest trends.

Arriving at a fashion event in New York, Nicole sported an outfit that showed off her wild side, as she dressed in a long-sleeved tiger print dress that she teamed with bright red heels.

But her accessories even outshone this daring look, as she wore silver earrings that had been made to look like an animal’s tooth.

Even though they were small stud designs, the points still protruded out from her ear.

She was also daring with her choice of ring, as she opted for a silver design that covered most of her finger.
