Nicole Richie hosted a recent fund-raising event in Los Angeles for Baby2Baby sporting a white see-through top and tight-fitted denim jeans topped off with her six-year-old daughter's beige shaggy coat.

The 33-year-old fashion designer, author, actress and television personality captured the look herself, for posterity's sake, with a selfie she posted on Instagram captioned: "Thanks for letting me borrow your jacket Harlow."

Harlow is her first-born child with rock star husband Joel Madden. People magazine reportedly paid $ 1million for an exclusive on Harlow's first baby pictures. Nicole named her company, House of Harlow 1960, after her daughter.

Most mothers and daughters do sometimes share clothes and stuff. In Nicole's case, it helps that she's so thin she fits in her six-year-old's coat. Nicole has an "inability to put on weight" not because she's anorexic nor bulimic. Back in 2007, she was diagnosed with hypoglycemia. She's managing her condition with a doctor and a nutritionist.

Nicole, like Jessica Alba, is a board director at Baby2Baby, a non-profit organization that provides low-income children ages 0-12 with diapers, clothing and all the basic necessities that every child deserves. According to the company, it aims to serve 80,000 such less-fortunate children this year. In the organization's website, Nicole says: ""We take the basic necessities for granted, but for many families, it's a serious struggle. This is one way to ease the financial burden, and help new babies have a good start in life."

Last night at People Magazine Awards gala at the Beverly Hills Hotel. She came for the evening's occasion in a striking black jumpsuit with lace detailing on the arms which she highlighted with some custom-made House of Harlow 1960 jewelry and black patent court shoes. Completing the look, she holds a black clutch. On her sense of fashion, she was quoted by Philadelphia Style as saying: "I'm hugely inspired by the '60s and the '70s. I just love the music of that time and the overall freedom of that era. I love that the idea of clashing didn't really exist. You could mix prints on prints, you could mix fabrics and colors-and it was more about the way you felt than about the label and trends. That's something that I've always gravitated toward, and that's something I've always tried to bring to House of Harlow and my QVC line."
