Who Designed Nicky Hilton's Wedding Dress? She Knew Who It Would Be Since Childhood
Unless you haven't been on social media yet today or your laptop is in the shop, you know by now that Nicky Hilton married James Rothschild at Kensington Palace (yes, like where the royals live) in London.The bride, who stunned in a lacy, long-sleeved number that stretched from Kensington to Downton Abbey, wore — royal fanfare, please — Valentino, a long-time go-to for the newly-minted Mrs. Rothschild.
Paris Hilton's younger sister filled Harper's Bazaar in on her childhood dream that, as of Friday, became reality. "Ever since I was a little girl I wanted Valentino to design my wedding dress. Valentino is the definition of timeless elegance, I don't think there's another couture house like it."
The dreamy dress, an intricate lace confection with a high Victorian collar, was custom made (as if Hilton would wear RTW!) and rang in it at £50,000, or around $77,500. According to Harper's Bazaar, which got exclusive access to the first fitting, the gown took couturiers six months to create, thanks to the elaborate details — and countless, hand-sewn crystals.
It's quite a far cry from her first wedding to Todd Meister — a Vegas affair, where she wore a veil over a wrinkled blue dress.
The thing about planning a wedding is that there's always going to be unexpected snafus. Like someone parking a Bentley on your train.
Happens literally all the time.
The chicest brides know that it's all about the details. Underneath the gown's billowing balloon skirt? The most perfect pair of white Christian Louboutin pumps, embroidered with the bride's new name.
