As far as brides go, Nicky Hilton was one for the ages! The newlywed dropped by the HollywoodLife.com studio for our podcast and couldn’t help but gush about her memorable wedding gown and the joys of married life thus far. Listen here!
It’s been three months since Nicky Hilton, 31, tied the knot with her longtime love James Rothschild, and the heiress still can’t stop gushing about her stunning Valentino couture wedding dress. But really, can you blame her? We spoke to her on the HollywoodLife.com podcast, during which she revealed all of the details behind the gown’s exquisite creation and how married life has been treating her thus far. Listen to our full interview with Nicky here!
“I wanted it to be classic and timeless, ” said Nicky of her show-stopping wedding gown. “I didn’t want to be edgy; I wanted to be very traditional.” With a very specific aesthetic in mind, Nicky sought out the designers of Valentino to create the one-of-a-kind white lace couture gown that garnered comparisons to the iconic style Kate Middleton wore for her own royal wedding. “I worked very closely with them [Valentino] for six months in the design process. They make the most amazing dresses in the world, so I knew I was in good hands. It was actually very comfortable, but the train was almost ten feet long, so maneuvering around in that was a little tricky.”
Thankfully, the hotel heiress did slip into some “very comfortable” shoes for the occasion. “I has Christian Louboutin shoes that he custom made for me with my new name and the wedding date.” Color us jealous!
Since tying the knot in what has been hailed as “the billion dollar wedding” of the year, Nicky admits that she’s completely in love with married life. “I’m very happy. It’s such a special time when you first get married and I’m just enjoying it,” she said. “My parents have been married for almost 40 years so I have a very, very good template to look to.”

In addition to basking in the bliss of her marriage, Nicky has also been hard at work on her new handbag line designed in collaboration with Linea Pelle. The capsule collection, which launched at New York Fashion Week back in September, was inspired by the pieces in Nicky’s own life, with the added benefit of being both stylish and practical. “When I was designing the collection, I really wanted to keep in mind bags that I could wear in my everyday life,” Nicky told HollywoodLife.com. “And what I love about these purses, is that they transition from day to evening really well. I really wanted to make them practical and stylish because I think what’s really trending right now are those itty bitty bags and while they are really cute, they don’t fit anything. So I wanted to make cool bags that were also functional.” Mission accomplished Nicky!
