Paris and Nicky Hilton are working together on a top-secret design project.

Fashion designer Nicky, who has released clothing, footwear and accessories during her career, revealed to DailyMailTV in a new interview that she has teamed up with her sister Paris to create a new design project, but it was too soon to reveal the details.

“Paris and I are working on a fun design project, which I can’t talk about yet. But, we haven’t collaborated together professionally in quite a while. So it’s fun to be working together again,” she said.

The 36-year-old gave the interview while promoting the launch of New York-based brand Alice + Olivia’s collaboration with artist Lakwena, which she helped facilitate. The clothing line will raise funds for the LifeWay Network, an organisation which helps to house and support human trafficking survivors.

She enlisted Paris to model the colourful collection, which features a kimono with ‘LIFT YOU HIGHER’ on the back, skinny jeans, high-waisted cropped trousers, white T-shirts with the words ‘When I’m Free’ and ‘POWER’ on the front, and a multi-coloured matching midi skirt and cropped tee emblazoned with ‘RAISE YOUR HOPES’.

And Paris is a huge fan of the collection, which was purposefully created with bold colours to “highlight the strength of survivors”.

“I love the collection. I think it’s just so beautiful. I love the colours. This is for an amazing cause and Nicky and Stacey have such big hearts to do a collection like this and just raise awareness. And it’s also beautiful fashion,” she shared.

Prices range from $195 (£149) to $695 (£533) and the line is available to purchase from aliceandolivia.com.

Prabal Gurung has paid tribute to New York City with his fall/winter 2020 collection.

The Nepalese-American fashion designer unveiled his latest line, titled Impossible Dreamers, at the Rainbow Room as part of New York Fashion Week on Tuesday, with the likes of Indya Moore and Nicky Hilton perched on the front row.

Regarding his inspiration, Gurung shared in his show notes that the range stemmed from a quote penned by author Joan Didion about the Big Apple and his own experiences.

“No one ever truly gets over New York City. It’s not just a place – it is a feeling of belonging and purpose that leaves an indelible mark on your identity,” he commented. “To those that know the city well, the skyline bears a familiar smirk, a twinkle of glee in the understanding that some will never learn the beauty of its chaos. The sirens are our anthem, the taxis our chariots, billboards copper our eyes, and we are guided by our vagabond shoes, we feel that anything is possible, and the energetic vibration of the air stirs our souls awake. This urban jungle builds dreams of sheer grit and tenacity.”

To open, a model walked the runway in a sharp white suit with black lapels and a large button attached to the centre of the jacket. A mix of elegant black dresses, white jackets, and mint green numbers followed. Gurung also played with feathers, attaching them to jackets, skirts, and stoles.

Other highlights included an eclectic mix of floral and leopard print pieces, as well as a dramatic line-up of eveningwear designs, such as a strapless gown made from sky-blue tulle and a slinky black velvet gown with silver beading and cutouts.

Oscar de la Renta has dished up a line of glamorous ballgowns for its fall/winter 2020 collection.

Creative directors Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia unveiled their latest line for the luxury fashion house at The New York Public Library as part of New York Fashion Week on Monday night, with celebrities including Nicky Hilton and Logan Browning perched on the front row.

Regarding their inspiration for the range, the designers looked at photographs of the Black and White Ball hosted by author Truman Capote in 1966, which was attended by brand founder de la Renta and his wife Francoise de Langlade, as well as Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s 1797 poem The Sorcerer’s Apprentice, which was adapted into Walt Disney’s 1940 animated film Fantasia.

“With @fernandogarciam1205 and @tokibunbun starring as Oscar de la Renta’s apprentices, fall 2020 captures the allure of a magical evening and the fleeting feeling of a once-in-a-lifetime occasion,” a rep shared in a post on Instagram.

To open the show, Bella Hadid modelled a vibrant outfit comprised of teal trousers, a dark red top, red silk scarf, and bright blue coat.

A number of similar looks featuring bold colour-blocking followed, including a number made up of a red coat and bright pink tailored trousers.

Part of the way through the presentation, Kim and Garcia introduced more muted floral appliques on dresses, blazer lapels, sweaters, and coats.

Yet, the drama really ramped up towards the end of the spectacle, with the designers offering a crimson silk ballgown with a drop waist, a black ballgown covered in a firework-like sequin pattern, a draped burgundy velvet dress, and a minidress made of gold beaded fabric.

To conclude, Bella made a second appearance in a pink velvet dress accessorised with a matching feathered cape.

Hilary Rhoda is to become a first-time mother.

The model, who is perhaps best known for her work with Estee Lauder and appearances in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, took to Instagram on Thursday to announce that she and her sportsman husband Sean Avery are expecting a son.

“It’s a boy,” she wrote alongside a snap of herself cradling her growing baby bump while sitting on a sofa. “@imseanavery and I are having a baby and we’re so excited about this next chapter of life together.”

Accordingly, a number of Hilary’s celebrity pals were quick to send her congratulatory messages, including the likes of Martha Hunt, Brooklyn Decker, Nicky Hilton, Georgia Fowler, and Nina Agdal.

“Congratulations to you guys!!!!! What an amazing news (sic),” Natasha Poly wrote, while Carolyn Murphy added: “Yay mama and papa.”

However, when announcing the news on her Instagram Stories, Hilary added that falling pregnant hadn’t been easy.

“We’re having a baby! The last year has been quite a journey getting to this point, lots of ups & downs… but for those trying to conceive, all I can say is just keep going,” the 32-year-old wrote, along with a red heart emoji. “Trying to conceive is a mindf**k and might have almost ended our marriage once or twice.”

Meanwhile, Sean opened up about his journey with Hilary on his podcast No F**ks Given, revealing she had suffered two miscarriages before they conceived their baby boy.

“The moment we took the noise, science and methods out of it – that’s how you make a baby in tough times,” he said, explaining that it was when he returned home from a five-week trip that the conception happened.

Hilary and former National Hockey League player Sean, 39, married in October 2015.

Paris Hilton owns at least 100 Juicy Couture tracksuits

Paris Hilton can’t stop adding to her Juicy Couture tracksuit collection.

The socialite/TV personality was one of the major trendsetters of the early 2000s, and when she was not hitting the nightclubs in tiny party dresses, was often seen sporting velour tracksuit sets from California-based label Juicy Couture which she matched with Von Dutch T-shirts.

Yet, Paris has never grown tired of wearing tracksuits when off-duty, and in an interview with The Guardian, she shared that she has a wardrobe full of them.

“Growing up, I always had my own sense of style. I loved being unique and original and coming up with my own trends,” she told the publication. “When I go to a party, I love to be glamorous and go all out; I like to sparkle and feel amazing. However, my everyday wear is very comfortable. I love Juicy Couture’s velour tracksuits; I probably own 100 of them in every colour. That’s my uniform when I’m chilling at home or going to the beach – anything that doesn’t involve a red carpet.”

Paris went on to name Kate Moss and Victoria Beckham as two of her style icons, and also noted that she appreciates her younger sister Nicky Hilton’s “understated” fashion choices.

Elsewhere in the chat, the blonde star reflected on her favourite style moments and selected the silver chainmail Julien Macdonald dress she wore to her 21st birthday party in 2001 as one of her top looks.

“It’s amazing that it has become so iconic; everybody wants to wear it. I feel proud every time I see someone wearing a version of this look,” the 38-year-old added.

Valentino unveils opulent fall 18 couture collection

Valentino presented an opulent collection filled with ‘60s flair for its fall 2018 couture line.

Designer Pierpaolo Piccioli presented his latest high-end range for the Italian fashion house at the Hotel Salomon de Rothschild on Wednesday night (04Jul18) as part of Paris Couture Week.

The show drew in a number of A-list names, such as Amber Heard, Tracee Ellis Ross, Nicky Hilton, Olivia Palermo and Lucy Boynton, while label founder Valentino Garavani, 86, also sat on the front row.

Speaking to Vogue prior to the spectacle, Piccioli explained that the range was inspired by a variety of influences, including medieval armour, Greek mythology, 17th and 18th century painting and David Bowie’s alter ego Ziggy Stardust.

“(The line is) Renaissance meets Versailles meets ’60s whatever,” he told the fashion publication, adding that he enjoys exploring the fantastical elements that couture allows. “With ready-to-wear, your vision of beauty relates to the times you are living in. Couture involves a deeper and more intimate perspective, to go further into your own vision of beauty.”

The show opened with a model sporting a bright blue dress with patchwork cape featuring gold fabric and had her hair styled by Guido Palau into a teased coif.

A pink silk dress with oversized sleeves followed, as did a lemon-yellow shirt and burgundy trouser combination that was topped off with an emerald green sequin cape.

Retro touches were evident in graphic printed capes and belted coats, pussy bows shirts and the bold pink and blue eyeshadow swipes across the models’ eyelids, while the inspiration of classical art was apparent in a ruched chartreuse silk shirt with high collar.

Highlights of the line included a pale pink feathered gown as worn by model Kaia Gerber and a dramatic gown with off-the-shoulder neckline made from Valentino’s signature red fabric.

Schiaparelli has played with animal prints for its fall 2018 couture collection.

The French luxury fashion house, helmed by designer Bertrand Guyon since 2015, held a presentation at the Palais Garnier in Paris on Monday morning (02Jul18), with celebrity guests including Mandy Moore, Pixie Lott, Adriana Lima, Jaime King and Nicky Hilton.

For the show, Guyon chose to experiment with clashing colour and print, with the pieces heavy on leopard-like spots, tiger stripes and eye-catching floral footwear in reds and oranges.

Though the pattern was used as part of dramatic concoctions, the leopard motif was also incorporated into more ladylike pieces, such as a high-necked belted jacket decorated with embellished aqua buttons – in addition to a masculine fitted blazer in the same print.

Eccentric headgear was another frequent occurrence, and masks depicting animals including lions, flamingos, dogs and butterflies helped bring the outfits in tune with the collection’s wildlife theme.

One model’s outfit was given a fun touch via the addition of a pair of neon pink and orange rabbit ears, while another had her face completely immersed in pink and white flowers.

Away from the animals, Guyon incorporated plenty of classic evening gowns with a twist, evident in the satin purple number worn by Canadian model Winnie Harlow. The violet dress was pleated around the collar and sternum, while a contrasting fit ran along the sleeves, giving the fail-safe design a much more modern vibe.

Other examples included a simple black pencil dress which was adorned with embellished jewels resembling a pair of heavily-lashed eyes, with the look topped off with a pair of metallic silver cuffs which extended across the length of the forearm.

Pointed boots in deep blues and sea greens proved to be the most popular footwear of the show, while multi-layered dresses, studs and sequins, three-dimensional detailing and delicate tulle skirts were unveiled by a parade of models at the conclusion of the spectacle.

Paris Hilton is planning numerous outfit changes at her upcoming wedding to actor Chris Zylka.

The Leftovers star Chris went down on one knee in December (17), proposing with a $2 million (£1.5 million) rock during a ski trip to Aspen, Colorado.

Vogue reporters caught up with Paris as she attended the Monse New York Fashion Week party with her sister Nicky on Tuesday (13Feb18), and grilled her on who’ll be designing her wedding dress.

“So many designers have sent such incredible sketches,” she said. “There are so many beautiful choices that I’m definitely going to have to have some outfit changes, for sure.”

Zosia Mamet, Olivia Culpo, and Kat Graham were also at the bash to celebrate Monse, which is the label run by Oscar de la Renta designers Laura Kim and Fernando Garcia.

While in the Big Apple, the Hilton sisters have also been spotted at the Alice + Olivia show, while Paris also stopped by Rachel Zoe’s Los Angeles presentation earlier this month (05Feb18), where she took in Rachel’s new bridal designs.

As well as her busy show schedule and planning her nuptials, the 36-year-old hotel heiress and beauty entrepreneur has been focusing on her new skincare line and perfume, as well as recently releasing single I Need You.

“I’ve always had big dreams and wanted to be an independent woman at a very young age,” she explained of managing her workload. “As a teenager in New York, you grow up very fast and being from a business family, that was always instilled in me. I don’t stop. Success is something that really drives me and I love it.”
