Nicole Richie -- Kate Moss Wannabe?

The sunglasses. The shorts. The boy toy. Seems Nicole Richie has a brand new fashion influence these days, legendary supermodel Kate Moss.

Nicole was spotted cruising the streets of Beverly Hills yesterday with a new mystery man, who bears a very close resemblance to Kate's sweetheart, rocker Pete Doherty. Maybe Nicole is hoping the mimicry will land her on the same stellar career path as her hero ... minus the crazy drug scandals, of course.
