Nicole Richie earned top fashion points on the Golden Globes 2013 red carpet by stepping out in the spring summer '13 trend for pastels tonight.

The reality TV star-turned-fashion-designer joined the likes of Jessica Chastain, Thandie Newton and Rosario Dawson in adding a splash of colour to a red carpet dominated by nude, red and LBD trends.

And it was her bold beauty move to team her Naeem Khan aqua dress with matching eyeshadow that really caught our attention.

While many women shy away from the hue - one many of us experimented with in our teens - the 31-year-old proved blue was a brilliant choice to complete her look.

In fact, Nicole Richie's ice-cool blue lids were funky and modern, working perfectly with the rest of her make up.

Lashings of mascara helped add a sultry shading to the corner of her eyes, while purple eyeliner added dimension to her lower lashes.

While most stars showed off rose-tinted lips tonight, Nicole opted for a nude-pink hue - helping to give her bold eyeliner maximum impact.

The Winter Kate designer was careful to not let her pastel-blue look be overshadowed by any fussy embellishments, simply adding diamond studs to her look.

Relaxed, tousled waves hung over the star's shoulders, with a smokey-grey clutch covered in fringing her only accessory.
