Nicole Haunts L.A.

It's almost Christmas, but Nicole Richie is rocking a Halloween look.

The tiny celebutante, currently in hot water after her arrest, was apparently so cold she wore a blanket to lunch. Richie tried to make it impossible to take her photo yesterday as she left a sushi bar in Los Angeles.

She wasn't able to avoid it entirely, and the verdict is in; the ghost costume is better than the skeleton.
