One is in town for the Australian MTV Video Awards, and the other is here for Australian Fashion Week.
Well, you may be a little surprised, but Nicole Richie is actually in town for MTV Australia, and she didn’t make any new fans on her arrival at Sydney Airport. According to the SMH, she left her fans in tears as she dashed from airport to car.
Fan Bianca Valodian woke up at 4am to catch a glimpse of Richie and was devastated to miss out on getting an autograph from the tiny star.
“We haven’t slept in two days,” the 17-year-old year 12 student from Frenchs Forest said. “It’s pretty heartbreaking.”
Qantas staff were also underwhelmed by Richie, who was rude to the cabin crew on her flight from Los Angeles. “She’s not very nice,” a female crew member said. “She has no charm.” By contrast, her fiance Joel Madden and his brother, Benji, of Good Charlotte, happily posed for photographs with fans and signed autographs at Sydney Airport after flying in from Auckland after Richie.
When asked about the scrum at the airport, Richie made no apology. “You know what, I had just woken up so it was definitely a rush but, you know, we got through it,” she said.
In contrast Dita von Teese arrived in style, complete with Louis Vuitton luggage and a checked YSL Downtown bag slipped under her arm. She was even snapped pushing her own luggage around.
Her arrival was relatively fuss free ahead of her appearance at Australian Fashion Week to perform her Lipteese show as part of her role as a MAC’s Viva Glam spokesperson.
