Paris Hilton Had a Staggering 45 Dresses Prepared For Her Wedding Day
Today in wildly unrelatable celebrity news, Paris Hilton just revealed that she had 45 wedding dresses at the ready on her big day. Yes, you read that correctly — forty-freakin'-five. The reality TV star casually dropped the anecdote in a British Vogue video published on Oct. 26. While reliving her most memorable outfits through the years, she touches on the many bridal looks she wore to tie the knot with husband Carter Reum in November 2021. "I actually wore six dresses the night of my wedding, and it was because I literally had 45 of them," she says.
Why so many options, you ask? "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 says. "I tried to wear as many of them as possible." The ones that made the cut were certainly worthy of the glamorous occasion. Hilton walked down the aisle in an Oscar de la Renta gown featuring long sleeves, a high neck, and elegant pressed-flower embroidery that trailed down a voluminous tulle skirt. "I wanted something that was really just princess . . . I was going for a Grace Kelly vibe," she says of the design.
After the ceremony, the wardrobe changes commenced. In addition to another bespoke Oscar de la Renta piece — a bustier-style cocktail dress made of taffeta — Hilton also danced the night away in a caped Pamella Roland number dripping in sequins and pearls, plus an off-the-shoulder Galia Lahav princess gown made of a glittery, gauzy fabric. On the second day of her wedding, Paris orchestrated a carnival at Santa Monica Pier, where she wore a neon-pink tulle dress by Stacey Bendet of Alice + Olivia. The final look of the jam-packed weekend was a silver star-adorned Oscar de la Renta gown with a sheer skirt.
Now that we know Hilton had 39 other dresses on deck for her wedding, we have several pressing questions. Was there an entire room (or several rooms) at the venue set aside for storing them that night? How many did she realistically hope to wear? And perhaps most importantly: Where is she storing the dresses now, and does she want to stop paying the storage fees? Because we'd happily take a few of 'em off her hands.
