Theyre remarkable, and I make a point to contribute however I can, the 32-year-old philanthropist maintains. I wake up, lie in bed and read e-mails (half asleep). Its my favorite, and is the perfect way to start my day. However, anyone who has met Nicky in person would find the Nicky Hilton covered in the tabloids diffcult to reconcile with reality. She speaks softly and sparingly, taking pride in values like traditionalism, hard work and decorum.Here, the socialite and designer, who just released the new fall handbag collection Nicky Hilton x Linea Pelle, walks us through a fabulous day of fashion and philanthropy in her newlywed life. Then I get up, have some hot water with lemon and a light breakfast: hard-boiled eggs or a homemade smoothie. Half of what you read about us wasnt true, Nicky says of her earliest years in the spotlight. I once read I jumped onstage at some concert and was singing with the band. Anyone who knows me would know that wouldnt happen in a million years.For anyone at that age being told were going to pay you a ton of money to be famous and be on a TV show it would be a no-brainer, but I had to say no. Instead, Nicky pursued a career in fashion, designing a series of fashion lines over the years as well as collaborating with other brands on collections.
Everyday life might have changed for hotel heiress Nicky Hilton after marrying English banker James Rothschild earlier this year, but one thing remains consistent: her commitment to charity. I always try to help however I can, so Nancy and I are talking about the upcoming year and her vision for the event. Currently Im designing a capsule collection of handbags with Linea Pelle. Blond, beautiful and gloriously wealthy from a family with a legendary lineage, the tabloids couldnt get enough when the sisters appeared on the party circuit.
She currently supports longtime friend Nancy Daviss Race to Erase MS, the Make-A-Wish Foundation and the Starlight Foundation. We did a small collection of really chic bags: Nicky Hilton x Linea Pelle that launched in September. Then I relax with my husband and talk about our day. Paris was clearly the wild child and Nicky far shier and more grounded.
When it came time to ask for Nickys hand in marriage, James took her father to East End Clambakes after a round of golf while Nicky supported the Ovarian Cancer Research Funds Super Saturday shop-a-thon with her mother.
James finally got down on one knee and proposed in Lake Como, Italy, in the same country where they first met almost exactly three years earlier.
Im too nonchalant of a bride, and I think it terrifies my fianc, Nicky says. Always svelte but never intense about diet and fitness, shes now working out regularly with a trainer at Equinox and working with a nutritionist on her diet in anticipation of the big day. Anything that tastes remotely good is unhealthy, Ive found.
Even fruitmy nutritionist would say, Its all sugar, dont eat fruit.
It was a no-brainer for me, she says of selecting who would design the dress.
Although she wont reveal the name of the designer, Valentino seems like a safe bet, considering she regularly attends the Valentino Haute Couture show in Paris.
While most brides would have been in a flurry over wedding plans from Day 1, Nicky was in no rush to plan their nuptials. I really just want everything traditional and beautiful.
In fact, in April, there was still plenty to be done. So many brides today want avant garde, over the top, fashiony. Th e one thing Nicky is most certainly on top of is the dress and making sure she looks perfect in it.
Cooking is a shared passion for the pair, especially when theyre in the Hamptons.
