Nicole Richie Is Barely Recognizable At Paris Fashion Week (PHOTOS)

You've come a long way, Nicole Richie.

The reality-star turned-fashion-designer looked almost unrecognizable at Valentino's Fall/Winter 2013 Ready-To-Wear show during Paris Fashion Week on Tuesday, wearing a tiered strapless dress that looked rather billowy on the pint-sized starlet.

She was also sporting some newly-dark locks in an a braided updo. Outside, Richie bundled up in ruffled black coat and waved to photographers, her trademark rosary ankle tattoo on display and paired with fierce black pumps.

The petite socialite has undergone several style transformations over the years, from Paris Hilton's wild BFF on 'The Simple Life' to mother and House of Harlow 1960 designer. Her most recent venture is a collaboration with U.S. retailer Macy's.

From the looks of it, Richie's taking an even more dramatic turn toward high-fashion.

What do you think? Is Richie's new look a makeover or makeunder?
