Kim Kardashian's Throwback Thursday photo with her friend Nicole Richie may be the cutest #TBT picture yet. The reality star shared the above photo this week showing the two ladies at 13 years old. In the picture, both teens gave thumbs-up to the camera, while Richie's smile revealed her braces.
Nicole Richie, meanwhile, had a little fun with this Kim Kardashian photo, as well. After sharing the picture with her Twitter followers, she warned her fans, "Brace Yourselves."
Nicole Richie and Kim Kardashian became friends while growing up in the same neighborhood. And this is not the first time fans have seen pictures of the two together at that age. In 2011, the latter reality star posted a photo on her blog from around the same time period. This picture featured Richie with several of the Kardashian siblings.
"Ok look what Nicole and I found!!!!" Kardashian wrote under the photo. "Seriously! I was 13 and she was 12! Hahahaha. Look at how short my hair was! I literally screamed when I saw this!"
It appears that this caption was slightly inaccurate. A year later, Kim Kardashian posted the same Nicole Richie photo on her blog. But this time she noted then that it was from Richie's 14th birthday party.
"Happy birthday to my friend Nicole Richie," Kim Kardashian wrote in 2012. "Many of you may not know that we've known each other for many years. I found this pic of us at Nicole's 14th birthday party! Awww the memories!"
Both Kim Kardashian and Nicole Richie have come a long way since that photo was taken, though they still remain friends. Kim Kardashian has a successful reality show and is a new mother to daughter North West. Nicole Richie, meanwhile, married Joel Madden of Good Charlotte in 2010 and has two children of her own. She also made her own foray into reality television, starring in The Simple Life with her other friend Paris Hilton. Richie currently has a web show on AOL called #CandidlyNicole.
