Nicky Hilton doesn’t have anorexia, it seems she just doesn’t take a good photograph. She can look super-skinny sometimes, notably in these pictures, but Paris’ little sister denies having an eating disorder.
Hilton, who has been dogged by Internet speculation about recent weight loss, hit back at the reports. “There’s no truth to any starvation, eating disorders, rumors,” she told People Tuesday at her Nicholai fashion show, part of the Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at Smashbox Studios in L.A.
“I think the press has been printing a lot of pictures of me from unflattering angles,” added the 24-year-old designer. “My friends see the pictures and they’re like ‘Oh my god are you okay?’ And then they see me, and they’re like ‘Oh … ‘ It’s really not that interesting or true.”
I have a huge amount of sympathy for celebrities having their photo taken. While a glamorous shoot for a magazine gets re-touched and looks fabulous, sometimes you look at a cover and it is hard to identify who the celebrity is, they’ve been altered beyond recognition.
Paparazzi shots are even worse, because they can get those totally unflattering shots of your skirt sticking with static to your behind, the light behind your legs highlighting the fact you need a shave, or looking particularly thin. While some of us might love the pictures that make us look skinny, it seems that for the slimmer members of the population you stop looking slender and just look unwell.
Nicky has a new fashion collection out this week, called Nicholai. Sister Paris was in attendance at the show, wearing a dress from the collection, with her latest accessory, Benji Madden. She wore one of Nicky’s creations and said it was one of her favorites.
