For the sheer paparazzi-pushing, front-row feeding frenzy prospects alone many were looking forward to Chick by Nicky Hilton. To the surprise of the press, Paris Hilton did not attend her sister's show.
Nicky Hilton's casual Chick line did not pull the celebrity crowd it was expecting either but it it did have a lot of people. Parents Rick and Kathy Hilton sat front row proudly applauding their daughter.
Sticking to short spring dresses, baby dolls, tight knit shorts and corduroy trousers Hilton went with three underlying prints as her themes.
"My inspiration for this season was the princesses of Disneyland with the Prince especially," noted Hilton. "There's a lot of subliminal messages.
I don't know if people will pick it up but the apples, they are supposed to represent 'Snow White' and the evil apples. Then the glass slippers are of course 'Cinderella.' And the swans from 'Sleeping Beauty.' I even included a lot of peasant tops. Kind of my take on the seven dwarfs."
Nicky Hilton Beverly Hills is the sequel to Hilton's Chick, a tween-targeted casual wear line that was launched in 2004.
