Paris Hilton reveals she originally had 45 wedding dresses: ‘I tried to wear as many as possible’

Paris Hilton had a lot of options when it came time to decide on her wedding day looks.

While Hilton wore a whopping six different dresses on her big day, the 42-year-old socialite revealed during an interview with British Vogue that she actually had 45 different dresses to choose from.

“I actually wore six dresses the night of my wedding and it was because I literally had 45 of them,” she said.

“My stylist was getting calls from designers all around the world and everyone was so excited to be a part of this wedding that they all made these incredible custom dresses that were so beautiful.”

Hilton told British Vogue that designers just kept sending her more options without her asking.

Despite having to forgo 39 of the options, Hilton says she “tried to wear as many as possible” for her 2021 nuptials to Carter Reum.

While many designers were vying to get Hilton into one of their gowns, the “Simple Life” alum said she “knew right away” that she wanted to walk down the aisle in an Oscar De La Renta wedding dress.

“I wanted something that was just really princess, that had like 3D flowers on it and I was going for a Grace Kelly vibe,” she explained.

She was eventually able to narrow down her options to her favorite six looks.

And she got just that. The mother of one greeted Reum at the altar in a long-sleeved, flower-embroidered couture design, which she once described as “timeless, elegant, chic, and iconic.”

For her first dance, the reality TV star changed into an off-the-shoulder Galia Lahav ballgown, which she paired with a diamond tiara.

She kept the off-the-shoulder-theme going for her third dress, which was much shorter in length and featured floral appliqués similar to her first gown.

The dresses ranged from short numbers to long, sequined gowns.

However, Hilton always knew she wanted to walk down the aisle in an Oscar De La Renta gown.

Hilton then switched things up a bit in a low-cut Pamela Rowland design, complete with a sparkling sequin cape.

When it came time to hit the dance floor, she had two different options: a sheer, silver star-adorned dress and a full hot pink Alice + Olivia ensemble.

Ending the lavish night in the bubblegum outfit was very on-brand for the “Stars Are Blind” singer, who is well known for her love of all things pink.

In fact, elsewhere in the interview, the socialite reminded fans that she was donning Barbie-inspired styles decades before the trend made its way back into mainstream fashion.

Hilton claimed she was known for her all-pink looks well before Barbiecore took the fashion world by storm.

As Hilton flipped through some of her most memorable looks through the years, she landed on a photo of herself clad in a hot pink Versace dress with an actual Barbie backpack in hand.

“This was in Las Vegas for the Maxim Lounge opening in November of 2001,” she reflected. “I was going for the Barbiecore vibes before there was even the word Barbiecore.”

“I invented it,” she added with a smile. “Barbie is my idol. She is such an icon. I’ve looked up to her my entire life.”

In addition to the doll’s bold fashion, Hilton noted that she “always loved that Barbie could be anything that she set her mind to.”
