2023’s MTV Video Music Awards red carpet at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey, witnessed an extraordinary display of style and glamour as Nicky Hilton Rothschild graced the prestigious event.
The 39-year-old entrepreneur and influential figure in the fashion industry has been a familiar face on the VMAs red carpet for over a decade. Her presence has always been eagerly awaited; this year was no exception.
Nicky was accompanied by her mother, Kathy Hilton, who first appeared at the VMAs on the memorable Tuesday night.

The mother-daughter duo left no stone unturned in making their fashion statements resonate with the event’s vibrancy.
Nicky attended the prestigious event in a stunning gold Versace mini dress. Her outfit featured long sleeves adorned with glittering embellishments, creating an enchanting effect.
Beneath the sheer, bejeweled ensemble, the mother-of-three sported a light brown slip, adding an element of intrigue to her outfit.
Nicky accentuated her look with pear-shaped yellow diamonds and white diamond stud earrings from Chopard’s Haute Joaillerie Collection for a touch of elegance to her ensemble.

Her makeup was a masterpiece crafted by professional makeup artist Joel Vasquez, who used a range of e.l.f. Cosmetics products.
Nicky’s sultry smokey eye, rosy blush, and silky satin lip color were reminiscent of her sister Paris Hilton‘s iconic early 2000s look. Her signature blonde locks cascaded in beach waves down her shoulders, completing her glamorous appearance.
James Rothschild’s wife’s choice of footwear was equally show-stopping – a pair of matching gold Aquazzura Tequila Plexi sandals.
Crafted from sleek laminated Nappa in soft gold and clear PVC, these heels featured dazzling crystals along slender straps and a seductive stiletto heel.

Meanwhile, Kathy Hilton embraced chic goth style on the red carpet, leaning into the superhero trend with a black Alice + Olivia cape and bustier.
At one point, she unveiled a delicate pattern beneath the cape, adding an element of mystery to her monochromatic ensemble.
The 64-year-old American fashion designer’s black shorts peeked under her skirt, and she elevated her stature with black lace heels.
Kathy adorned herself with dangling earrings from Chopard’s Red Carpet Collection, boasting over 17 carats of diamonds. Her makeup featured a pinky nude eye and rosy cheeks, complemented by a high half-up ponytail.

In the days leading up to the VMAs, Nicky Hilton graced Alice + Olivia’s Spring 2024 presentation at New York Fashion Week.
Her outfit for the occasion was a testament to her impeccable fashion sense. Even when faced with the rain on Wall St., Nicky remained elegant while attending Stacey Bendet’s collection reveal, inspired by Truman Capote’s Black and White Ball.
Shielding herself from the rain with an Alice + Olivia Stace face umbrella, she showcased a stylish ensemble comprising a collarless red Alice + Olivia Landon cropped jacket and a coordinating Alice + Olivia Rubi tweed miniskirt.

Her outfit was adorned with subtle black and white trim accents, embodying the spirit of the 1960s New York socialites.
Completing the look, she layered it over a ribbed tank top with a crystal-trimmed neckline from Alice + Olivia’s Allen collection, achieving a polished and streamlined appearance.
She elegantly stepped into a pair of sleek white Chanel pumps featuring pointed black-capped toes and mid-height heels while thin black leather trim gracefully intertwined with gleaming silver chains, adding a captivating flair.
