Nicole Richie Flees to Mexico

1/8/2007 2:09 PM PST
Nicole Richie made a run for the border this weekend. No, she wasn't trying to escape from cops on the wrong side of the road, just vacationing with boyfriend Joel Madden.

Although Halloween is nine months away, the duo arrived in Puerto Vallarta dressed in their standard costumes. Nicole in her Rhoda Morganstern meets vagabond gypsy chic and 27-year-old Joel in his usual suburban high school wannabe rebel gear. ¡Ay dios mio!

Later, the Richie-Maddens took in the tropical views at a beachside bar. Let's hope, for Mexican motorists' sake, that Vicodin and pot were not on the menu.
