Nicole Richie’s red carpet gown for the 82nd Annual Academy Awards is absolutely sexy and sleek. The tiny fashionista’s gown was streamlined and backless and was a throwback to the Diana Ross and the Supremes.

Although the combination of metallic material teamed with snakelike pattern makes the dress appear like an optical illusion (which I think would be fun for fiancé Joel Madden), the design adds curves to Nicole Richie's petite frame.

Implications - As the credit crunch comes to an end, consumers are looking for more luxurious styles. Designs that feature a prestigious air appeal to those shoppers who desire some exclusivity in their daily lives. Companies attempting to increase their popularity could develop more items with this in mind.
