Posted Saturday May 5, 2012 9:05 AM GMT

She's in the midst of the debut season of her new NBC series "Fashion Star" and, to help draw attention, Nicole Richie landed herself a feature in the June 2012 issue of Glamour magazine.

The 30-year-old fashionista donned designer beachwear including a yellow Martin Grant top with a Agnès B bikini and an orange Winter Kate dress with a House of Harlow 1960 choker for the elegant Patric Shaw shot spread lining the pages.

Meanwhile, highlights from Miss Richie's interview are as follows. For more, be sure to pay a visit to Glamour!

On whether husband Joel Madden notices when she changes her hair:
"Joel noticed this Valentine’s Day that I had bangs. He looked at me and was like, 'You got bangs, I see.' I was like, 'I’ve had bangs since I was 22 years old!' [Laughs.]"

On whether she thinks of herself as a trendsetter:
"No! [Laughs.] My world is small. I have my circle of 10 friends, my kids, my family. None of them call me a trendsetter."

On advice for women starting their own business:
"Study your craft. Know it well before you jump in. I wait all the time. Because I don’t want to just put my name on something and then release it. What’s the point of that?"
