It’s beginning to look a lot like award season, and at the Grammys, golden trophies matter way less than huge performances and wow, surprise-factor fashion. With the 2015 nominations rolling out today, we took a look back at our 10 favorite Grammy style moments, from Grace Jones’s ’80s glamour to Rihanna’s contemporary edginess, and the particularly magical year 2000 that gave us Britney, Christina, and J.Lo in that iconic Versace dress.

With her brand new House of Harlow 1960 Home Fragrance Collection — launching exclusively on Gilt tonight at 9pm ET — Nicole Richie has become a true player in the lifestyle field. Her clothing and accessory lines are beloved by those obsessed with her trendsetting style, and home was a natural next step for Richie, who says it’s one of her true passions. We caught up with the star who shares the inspirations behind her new fragrances, her family’s love of the holiday season, and she curated a mix of her favorite gifts to give here on Gilt.
StyleFile: Your empire is expanding fast — how did you decide to move into fragrance?
Nicole Richie: Stepping into the world of home has been a passion of mine since the day I started this brand. I designed my home. Candles set the tone of a home; they warm up a room and fill the room with a mood.
SF: Tell us about the process of developing fragrances. Where did you begin? Did you have specific scent references you brought to the team?
NR: Developing a fragrance is very personal. I had to go back to the root of House of Harlow and what it stands for. House of Harlow celebrates individuality. It is a world of no rules, of dreams, and music. I wanted each scent to send you to the place of feeling free. Like Baby when she finally did the lift in Dirty Dancing.
SF: What are some of your favorite scent memories?
NR: My mother has been pairing and mixing oils, options, and perfumes since I was a little girl. I always remember the way she smelled.
