Hilton, 31, looked picture perfect on her wedding day in the floor length, Valentino haute couture wedding dress. “Ever since I was a little girl I wanted Valentino to design my wedding dress. Valentino is the definition of timeless elegance, I don’t think there’s another couture house like it,” Hilton told Harper’s Bazaar.
Hilton worked with designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli for six months to perfect her dream gown, which featured a balloon skirt, with a 3-meter-long train, and a lace bodice, complete with long sleeves and a high neckline. “I went through every look from their collections over the last 10 years. I studied the archives, and I just sent notes about details I liked – a certain sleeve, a high neckline,” Hilton said.
The bride paired her one-of-a-kind dress with custom heels embroidered with her wedding date and “Mrs Rothschild.”
Hilton walked down the aisle alongside her maid of honor, sister Paris Hilton, who wore a blue chiffon dress by Dennis Basso. Hilton shared photos of the three-day festivities in London on Instagram, giving fans a look at the pre-wedding celebrations.
“#MaidOfHonor & #BrideToBe getting ready for the big day. [heart emoji] #MrsRothschild,” Paris captioned a photo of the sisters in their pre-wedding robes.
Paris also shared a stunning black and white photo of her sister, showing off Hilton’s long train and classic veil, and calling her “the most beautiful bride I’ve ever seen.”
Hilton and Rothschild began dating in 2011 and were engaged in 2013.
