Nicole Richie's friends have devised some creative ways to shield her from photographers. Sunday night, one pal leaped onto the hood of her black SUV and used his arms and legs to block the windshield.

He didn't do such a hot job, since we could clearly see Nicole laughing inside. But it was all in good fun -- Richie even snapped a photo of her view from the driver's seat.
