Designer Karl Lagerfeld has called Nicole the fashion icon of our time. Nicole says her love for fashion comes from her mother.
"My mother was a feminist, but she really has this sort of love for clothes and refinery," she says. "She would dress me up like a little doll and would take us shopping. She would take us to the flea markets, and we would find beautiful little vintage things. I think as a child when you're around that, then you grow into that. I have an enormous respect for [fashion design] as an art form."
