Nicky Hilton Would Rather Be Low-Key Than Famous

The socialite sister launches her second assortment for Tolani.



As somebody who designed her first purse on the tender age of 17, Nicky Hilton is not any stranger to the sector of trend design. Chick by Nicky Hilton, her clothes line circa 2004 featured embellished denims, tie-dye boho skirts and graphic t-shirts emblazoned with ‘Billionheir’ — to not point out her sister Paris wore a  “Stop Being Poor” tank prime to the launch social gathering.

Hilton has mellowed out significantly since these days, however she by no means misplaced her ardour for design. Her second assortment for Tolani launches at the moment, and its boho vibes deliver us proper again to these golden days of the early 2000s.

We caught up with the socialite sister about her private type, the traits she’d like to depart previously, and that point Khloe Kardashian tried out for The Simple Life.

On private type:

From day-to-day, I’m just about a thin denims, ballet flats and a blazer type of woman. But in the summertime, I stay in tunic tops, silk boho clothes, principally something that’s vibrant, shiny, and comfortable. I’d say my summer season uniform is a Tolani boho prime with jean shorts and gladiator sandals and a few form of braided hairdo.


On her sister, Paris:

What Paris has taught me, and what I feel is such an attractive factor to look at is, who cares what different folks suppose? I do know lots of people say that, however she actually doesn’t care. She does what she desires. She is just not about pleasing different folks. She’s very true to herself, and I feel that’s essential.

On her favorite (and least favorite!) early 2000s traits:

The Dior saddle bag, the Fendi baguette. I want I nonetheless had all these things, as a result of I had all of it! Paris and I bought robbed a couple of instances, so I feel plenty of it went out that manner. I nonetheless love the Fendi baguette. I feel it’s so iconic and stylish. I’d like to cross these items on to my ladies. My tanning mattress dependancy is one thing I remorse.

On how fame has modified because the early 2000s:

Back then was so cool, as a result of folks wore what they needed to put on. No one was being styled in head-to-toe borrowed samples simply to stroll throughout the road to Starbucks. I don’t even suppose most of those ladies bought hair and make-up finished to go to occasions! It was much more about dwelling in your phrases than pleasing different folks. Now you don’t get to see folks’s particular person type, as a result of everybody has stylists. When there’s a development another person simply does it for them.

On social media:

Back then the extra enigma and thriller you had, the extra well-known you had been and the extra fascinating you had been. Today, we stay in a society of oversharing. So the extra you’re prepared to put up and share and exploit, the extra well-known you’ll be. I don’t know. It by no means stops. Like, is nothing sacred anymore?

On turning down The Simple Life:

[Why did I turn down The Simple Life?] Because I knew it was going to be hit! The idea was hysterical and so they pitched me the concept 100 instances. They truly interviewed lots of people for that half. I bear in mind Paris introduced in Khloé Kardashian at one level! But I knew that she would get mega-famous from it and wouldn’t have the ability to go to breakfast, buy groceries, or go about her day unbothered. I knew that Paris’ life would change eternally when that present aired, and I wasn’t up for that. Not to say I didn’t wish to go stay on a farm!
