While in Melbourne, Australia on Thursday to promote her Gold Rush fragrance, Hilton praised Trump’s business savvy during a publicity blitz.
“I’ve known her since I’m a little girl… I think she is a brilliant woman,” Hilton told The Daily Telegraph, also praising her father, President-elect Donald Trump. “She knows exactly what she’s doing. She has an amazing brand and yeah, I’m proud of what she’s done.”
Her statement follows Ivanka’s response on Friday to Shoes.com’s boycott of her label. “While Shoes.com was an inconsequential part of our business, they were not fulfilling their end of the contract and parting was inevitable,” a spokesperson for the Ivanka Trump brand said in an email statement to Footwear News.
Both entrepreneurs have footwear brands, as well as other products in women’s categories.
Hilton is currently Down Under promoting her new perfume and serving as a DJ at nightclubs.
