31-year-old Nicky wore an incredible white lace gown by Valentino, complete with a lengthy veil and train. She was escorted from the hotel by her father, Richard Hilton. Her sister, Paris Hilton, and mother, Kathy Hilton, were also spotted leaving the hotel wearing pale blue dresses.
Paris acted as bridesmaid for her sister and looked, compared to her sister’s elaborate gown, suitably understated in a Grecian style dress and holding a small posy of white flowers.
