Real recognize real just as much as the rich recognize the rich. That statement was probably most evident in the betrothal of Nicky Hilton — yes, Hilton like Hilton Hotels — to one James Rothschild — yes, like heir to the Rothschild estate. Can you talk about the confluence of wealth?!
Of course, we here at StyleBlazer were interested in one thing first and foremost: the dress. With couture week wrapping up, Hilton donned a £50,000 Valentino couture dress with a massively long veil and dress. How long you ask? So long that it could be parked on by a Bentley, unbeknownst to Hilton herself. Talk about first world problems: Bentley on my couture.
The wedding itself was at Kensington palace because, where else would it be? Hilton with her high neck, voluminous lace gown was the picture of perfection, wearing a pair of white Christian Louboutins that really didn’t’ see the light of day. With so much dress, Hilton had a cadre of assistants in waiting fluffing and adjusting the hem all day. The Rothschild’s suit was a lot less intense, though bespoke and from Savile Row tailor Huntsman.
But Valentino always turns out amazing gowns and is known for dressing brides of a certain calibre. As the brand just showed their latest couture collection, we looked back at that after Nicky’s betrothal. See photos in the slides to follow
