Nicole Richie is facing possible jail time for her DUI arrest, but photographers caught her smiling less than a week after she survived a dangerous wrong-way freeway excursion.
With a spring in her step, Nicole left a valet team after attending a holiday party at Gunnar Peterson's (yes, that Gunnar Peterson) ... and had to deal with the peering paparazzi. Mercifully, she rode in her new prime location -- the passenger seat.
The tiny driver will find out if she really has anything to smile about when she soon learns the charges to be filed against her.
