Nicky Hilton

Nicky Hilton Rothschild was born on October 5, 1983. She is a well-known American businesswoman, socialite, and fashion designer. She was born into the famous Hilton family and married into the Rothschild family. She attended fashion institutes after graduating from high school but left without receiving a degree, continuing instead to design. Soon after, she started a clothing line named Chick, which was reasonably priced for high fashion, and Nicholai, which was more expensive. She also dabbled in modeling at some point and wrote a fashion book. We celebrate this incredible person on her birthday.

Nicholai Olivia Hilton, the future Nicky Hilton Rothschild, was born on October 5, 1983, in New York City. Richard Hilton, her father, is a Hilton Hotels heir. Kathleen Elizabeth Hilton, her mother, is a philanthropist, fashion designer, and actor. She has three siblings (older sister Paris, and younger brothers Barron and Conrad). Nicky spent her formative years in Los Angeles before moving back to the East Coast, possibly in 1996. The kids were urged to make bake sales in the neighborhood so they could buy toys for kids confined at the hospital. They were taught social consciousness and the value of hard work at a young age.

Hilton began modeling at 16, making her first appearance in Vanity Fair. She debuted her clothing brand in 2004. She also created a line of handbags for a Japanese firm; she launched her second line in 2007. Hilton and eLuxe introduced a 10-piece collection in 2014. In 2010 and 2015, she launched a jewelry line and handbag collection, respectively. Hilton partnered with Tolani for a Mommy and Me capsule collection launched in 2017. In 2018, the line debuted in retail outlets. Hilton debuted her first footwear line in collaboration with French Sole in February 2019. In September 2019, the Nicky Hilton x French Sole clothing line debuted. She formed a partnership to launch the Miami and Chicago branches of the Nicky O Hotels. Her book titled “365 Style” was released in 2014 by HarperCollins subsidiary Harlequin. She also worked with an Estée Lauder company to develop a cosmetic line that included three limited-edition makeup kits.

Hilton married Todd Meister, a childhood friend, in 2004 (although the union did not last). She then met James Rothschild (from an English banking family) in 2011. In 2015, they exchanged marriage vows in London. They have two daughters: Teddy Marilyn and Lily Grace Victoria.
