Paris Hilton surprises Milan by closing the Versace fashion show

Paris Hilton wore seven dresses to her three-day wedding event last November – which we’re guessing must break some sort of record – but for Versace’s Spring/Summer 2023 show, Donatella Versace said: one more? and sent Hilton down the Milan catwalk as the pink Versace bride to close the presentation.

The socialite joined Hadids, Emily Ratajkowski and Vittoria Ceretti on the catwalk for a collection that appeared to celebrate nuptials by putting many models in colorful tulle headpieces. However, Hilton’s was bright pink to match her metallic mesh mini dress. The piece appears to be at least partly inspired by Julien MacDonald’s silver look that Hilton wore for her 21st birthday in 2002, featuring a similar draped neckline, although the Versace iteration featured a more fitted skirt lined with lace. The reality star’s ensemble was then completed with hot pink pumps, a star-shaped diamond necklace and, her favorite accessory, mittens.

It’s possible Versace and Hilton discussed this idea for the runway cameo in June at Britney Spear’s wedding. Both were guests at the event and even filmed a video with Spears, Madonna, Selena Gomez and Drew Barrymore singing “Vogue.”

This isn’t the first time Hilton has walked on a catwalk. She’s made appearances on a handful of shows over the years for brands like The Blonds, Heatherette, and Savage x Fenty. This is her Versace debut, however, and it may just be the start of collaborations between Donatella and Hilton.
