The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star hit the red carpet with daughter Nicky Hilton, wearing a sharp black Max Mara tuxedo with silk lapels. Hilton layered the sleek suit with a statement necklace by Chanel, featuring a sparkling double “C” logo and fringe detailing. Her outfit was complete with a crystal-covered Oscar de la Renta clutch—as seen in Footwear News‘ seclusive tour of her closet from our August cover shoot.

“It’s my go-to,” Hilton said of her statement bag. “I’m so glad that I kept so many things. It’s a lot of fun. It’s always good memories—old friends in the closet.”

The star also shared her experience visiting Bora Bora during daughter Paris’ honeymoon—as seen in the first part of docuseries “Paris in Love.”

“It was so beautiful. It was just total relaxation,” says Hilton, adding that she’d visit Paris on her honeymoon if needed. “I did end up going in the water, which was fun—and it was so warm.”

Hilton elevated her FNAA outfit with a sharp pair of silky pumps by Aquazzura. The “Paris in Love” star’s shoes featured black uppers, as well as a pointed-toe silhouette and stiletto heels totaling at least 3 inches in height. Her footwear’s boldest statement came from large crystal star and moon accents—one on each toe—to create a glamorous astrological style moment.

The star also opened up about her experience cooking for Thanksgiving this year, which she shared on Instagram. “Some of my fans said they couldn’t believe that I cook,” said Hilton. “I don’t cook often, but when I do [it’s] on Thanksgiving and Christmas, and a few other times a year.”
