Nicky Hilton

Birthplace: New York, New York
Best known as: Hotel heiress and sister to socialite Paris Hilton

Name at birth: Nicholai Olivia Hilton

Nicky Hilton and her older sister Paris are heirs to the Hilton Hotel fortune, known for their jetset party-girl lifestyles. Nicky is named for her grand-uncle Nicholas Conrad "Nicky" Hilton, Jr., the former husband of actress Elizabeth Taylor and the son of Hilton Hotels founder Conrad Hilton. NIcky's fame has generally been overshadowed by that of her sister Paris, who starred in the long-running reality series The Simple Life. Nicky Hilton announced in 2006 that she would open a line of hotels to be called Nicky O, but by February of 2007 deals in Miami Beach, Florida and Chicago, Illinois had fallen through and she was being sued by a development company for breach of contract.

Extra credit: Nicky Hilton married 33 year-old Todd Andrew Meister in Las Vegas on 15 August 2004, in a ceremony attended by her sister Paris and friend Bijou Phillips. The marriage was annulled in November of the same year.
