I suppose this is slightly happier news, if you know/care about Nicky Hilton. Last we heard of her, she was being dissed by Chloe Sevigny, and if that’s not D-List enough for you, I don’t know what is. But today, Nicky’s got big things happening: she’s engaged to banking heir James Rothschild. Don’t you love when money falls in love with money?

From US Weekly:

The Hilton Hotels heiress and fashion designer, according to the pal, said yes to her banker beau last weekend in Lake Como, Italy.

“They are both really excited and incredibly happy,” the insider tells Us of the pair.

Hilton, 30, and Rothschild (the heir to the famous European banking family) started dating in 2011 after meeting at supermodel Petra Ecclestone and James Stunt’s wedding in Italy. The sentimental spot was the ideal setting for Rothschild to propose.

“They went on a romantic anniversary trip over the weekend,” the source reveals. “He took her out on a boat into the middle of Lake Como and he proposed, got down on one knee and everything. It was incredibly romantic and beautiful.

Rothschild, it turns out, went to great lengths to make sure all the details were secured before he popped the question. The insider tells Us: “Last month, he actually flew from England (where he is based) to the States to ask her parents for her hand in marriage!”

Well, that’s sweet, I guess. So what will they do now? Well, they plan to celebrate their impending nuptials by going on a road trip around Europe, because what better do rich 30-somethings have to do with their lives than absolutely nothing?

Oh, whatever – let’s (pretend to) be nice today. Congrats to the happy couple!

Quotables: Style Icon Chloe Sevigny Disses Nicky Hilton; Also, Seems Kind of Obsessed with ‘Jersey Shore’

“I read somewhere that Abercrombie & Fitch offered to pay The Situation not to wear their clothes—but who am I to say who should be wearing mine? I do remember someone saying that… what’s Paris Hilton‘s sister called? Isn’t it Nicky or something? Anyway, she apparently talked to someone about my first collection, and was like, ‘I don’t get it.’ I was like, Good! I’m glad she doesn’t get it. It’s not for her. Besides, what’s there to get with clothes? So if Snooki wants to wear my clothes, go for it. I think she’d look a lot better in them.”

—the imperiously icy Chloë Sevigny, who has a new fashion line (via CeleBitchy). No, I know; I promise you’ll have a lot more fun with the quote if you read it to yourself in this voice.

But what is Chloë really trying to say here? Do I detect a barely-veiled attack on Nicky Hilton? Here, let me run that quote through my Mean Girl Translator. Ah, yes: Sevigny said, “I have been obsessed with Nicky Hilton ever since I overheard her complaining about the way I dress. Now I will pretend like I can’t even think of her name. Nicky? I’m sorry, Nicky Who?”

I see, too, that Chloë would be willing to selflessly sacrifice her style credibility if it only meant she could get Snooki out of that awful leopard print. Also, Chloë seems to know an awful lot about the Jersey Shore cast, don’t you think?

What else did Chloë say about Jersey Shore?

“I think it’s really depressing that people are propping these people up as celebrities. The way they behave is embarrassing, and I think it’s kind of diminishing our culture. Most reality TV people behave like pigs, and it’s unfortunate that they get put on pedestals for doing so.”

But! She also said,

“I have to admit, I do find that JWoWW sexy in a really weird way. It’s like that sexy, dirty kind of girl—not dirty, but like a hot mess. We’ve all gotten too drunk and acted crazy at parties, but I don’t maintain that and I’m kind of fascinated by those girls who do.”

Of course! The “Hot Mess” appeal, right. Don’t worry, Chloë, it’s OK to feel conflicted. I actually know exactly how you feel!

For instance, on the wall of my office, I have tacked up a Uniqlo poster* of Chloë—oh, what is she called? Chloë Sevigny or something? Yeah, her. I can’t explain it, but she is bizarrely magnetic. She acts like a total space alien. And I mean, I don’t maintain that, but I’m kind of fascinated by girls who do.

*I am really not kidding. She is posing fiercely with a comparatively complacent Tadanobu Asano, and something about the whole thing really tickles me. Oh, Chloë! So yeah, it’s very much on the wall in the other room.

Paris Hilton Stays Ass-y In Cannes

Paris Hilton Flashes The Club in Cannes

Everyone’s still in Cannes partying their faces off because they’re fucking rich and I’m poor and I never go anywhere and I’m tired and my bones hurt. I’m sorry. ANYWAYYSSS…

Paris Hilton and her sister Nicky (who just has the bitchiest face ever, and I’m sorry because I tried to like her but every time I see her I’m like, “Oh, that bitch is judging the hell out of someone right now.”) were partying it up in Cannes last night when Paris’ ass decided that it no longer could be contained and popped out to say hello to guests partying beneath them in the non-VIP section. It happens, man. I’m not Nicky Hilton, I’m not going to judge Paris for that. Sometimes you’re at the club and your ass falls out. It’s fun to look at, but let’s not chastise the girl for it.

Now does anyone want to pay for me to go on a vacation?

(UPDATE: The ass shot has been moved from the front page because apparently it’s NSFW. To me it was about as offensive as the Coppertone girl, but I am a raging whore so I probably wasn’t being sensitive to everyone’s virgin eyes/work situations.)
