Tuesday, 10:09 PM: The show finally kicked off at 9:55, only 55 minutes late. Nicky and Paris walked together to “Surfin’ in the USA” (left). Nicky looks so matronly compared to her sister. Paris strolled the runway again by herself to cheers. Her poofy hair took up most of the catwalk. And oh there’s Mya modeling.

Tuesday, 8:58 PM: Heatherette always entices VIPs to walk and this time Paris and Nicky Hilton will do the honors. I’m just a few feet away from them now in the makeup area. Paris is being worked on while her publicist\handholder Elliott Mintz sits next to her. Cameras are trying to capture the action but someone keeps screaming, “no cameras.” Nicky, in a plaid jacket, is sitting on a stool waiting.

Tuesday, 7:36 PM: I just chatted with Mischa Barton backstage. While I don’t think every woman can pull it off, I think her above-the-knee black, sleeveless Nanette Lepore dress looks cute with her Keds sneakers. She just took her front-row seat and is being blocked by her handlers so the public and press can stop jounding her. Oops, a little fan just squeezed in to give her a note. And get this: Mischa is reading it.

Melissa texts:
Tuesday, 5:23 PM: Sarah Michelle Gellar just entered the Marchesa show. She looks beautiful in a messy updo and pale strapless dress with a wide black belt. She is so tiny! Especially compared to Harvey Weinstein, who is also in the front row, as he is dating one of the designers of the line.

Tuesday, 5:28 PM: Mischa Barton just came in and the photographers are going crazy! She looks beautiful (and impossibly tall and thin) in a beaded dress and no jewelry, hair back in a bun. She takes her seat as the show begins. . .

Kelly texts:
Tuesday, 12:30 PM:This must be the day to bring your hunky husband. I see Elizabeth Berkley, looking stunning I might add in head to toe Chaiken, next to her better half Greg Lauren. And one seat down is Kimberly Guifoyle, who is due to give birth to the couple’s first child next month, with hubby Eric Villency.

Jeffrey texts:
Monday, 9:35 PM: Just talked to Glenda Bailey, Editor-in-Chief of Harper’s Bazaar. She explained why she is taking Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore around to shows. “Ashton is writing a piece for us. ┬áHe’s an excellent writer. He’s so quick, and he’s so witty.”

Monday, 9:42 PM: Zooey Deschanel walks into the Marc Jacobs show wearing a sweater held closed by 4 safety pins — no buttons done.

Clarissa texts:
Monday, 3:50 PM: At Luca Luca. Thalia is front row, decked head to toe in Luca Luca. Emmy Rossum is here with her stylist- her 20th birthday is tomorrow! Kanye West and his beautiful fiancee are here too.

Monday, 1:30 PM: At Oscar de la Renta. Picked up some style tips from uber-stylist Rachel Zoe.

erika on

i really really really don’t like paris hilton…she’s so dumb and thinks she can do everything…ie sing…

Genise on

Wow they look great! Go Hilton Sisters

LaTisha on

Wow A lot of Hilton haters out there. I’ve have seen both girls in person and they are beautiful as well as talented.

Courtney on

They both look like Barbie dolls, lookin good ladies.

abbey on

paris= trashy
nikki= great tan and good modeling pose

Katie on

I think that Paris would be such a lovely woman, but she’s so ugly on the inside that it makes her ugly on the outside. I would never encourage young women to look up to her.

Monique on

The world of the Hiltons’ sure seems exciting and glamorous. They look great actually. Isn’t amazing how after a DUI offense, you can go on a makeout party at Butter’s with Travis Barker and do the catwalk for Fashion Week. If I were Paris, (just a thought), I would of laid low, keep out of the media and help out in my community. She should lobby AGAINST driving under the influence and strut her butt for MADD. She’s a flake, irresponsible and an ambarrasement. I feel a little sorry for Nicky.

Michelle on

Oh please like every one of us doesn’t wonder what it’s like, even for a day, to be tall, thin, beautiful and incredibly wealthy and have all eyes on us. I say more power to you, and live it up while you can! Love you Paris!




beach babe on

well, 1 thing i don’t like paris hilton’s behavior but, Nicky and her are very beautifu. Although they look like mismatching barbies in that Photo! uh a fashion no no ;)

Katie on

Actually it was Emmy’s 20th birthday, not her 21st.
And yes, I also am sick of the Hiltons, especially Paris.

andreina on

Their hair look AWFUL. These are not extensions anymore, they are called W I G S and they look gross and amazingly FAKE. I can’t believe that paris said she had only slept with two guys ever… please…

Robin on

Why does everyone need to be so rude and cutting? They may be celebrities, but they are still people. No better, no worse than anyone else.

chloe on

well, she did say emmy’s 20th birthday right??!

Virginia on

I am not a fan, but the Hilton girls take care of them selves and I think are beautiful, in this picture I don’t like Paris’s hair and Nicky looks better as a blonde. I also blame the people that give them all the attention, is the reason they act like they are better than everyone

Maria on

paris hilton has to go find another job besides singing and modeling she cant model or sing or act paris go work as a maid at a hotel or something because u suck!!

mia on

Nikki looks Fat and horrible. So tired of her riding the coat tails of paris! Not a hater just being honest!

Nikki on

At least Nikki has a little bit more class about her and she seems to stay out of the public alot more, she doesn’t want her business aired like Paris does!!!! Nickey look’s much better in this piture, what’s up with Paris hair?

Stephanie on

WHATEV about the Hilton sisters, but does anyone know how to get legs like that? I’m a wee bit envious …

Jackie on

GO MONIQUE! I totally agree


Thanks Jackie ;-)

Sophi on

Why doesn’t Paris Hilton coverage just go away?! Her name is annoying to hear already!

Tammy on

You think Nikki looks fat?!?!? You are insane. If that’s fat then I have never seen a normal sized woman. I’m not a fan of the Hilton sisters but they are anything but fat!
