Everyone thought it was a little weird
00:06
that I lived in a hotel.
00:07
They used to call Paris and I the Eloises of the Waldorf.
00:12
Oh, we ran around everywhere.
00:14
That ballroom had events and crazy things
00:20
five nights a week so we were always sneaking in
00:23
and checking it out and spying on people.
00:27
[laughs] Yeah.
00:28
I was not a debutante.
00:29
I absolutely refused to be a debutante,
00:32
I thought it was lame and I wouldn't do it.
00:36
One of our first big photo shoots
00:38
was at David LaChapelle for Vanity Fair.
00:42
I was in high school
00:44
and Paris was in LA and David called us,
00:48
and I think I'm 16 years old at this point.
00:52
And he says, "We're gonna book you on a first class ticket
00:56
"to come out to LA and do a photo shoot
00:59
"with all these glamorous clothes."
01:01
So behind my parent's back I flew to LA
01:05
and we did the shoot and my parents heard about the shoot.
01:10
They were not happy.
01:12
I met my husband at a wedding the old fashion way.
01:16
I was standing there with my sister talking
01:19
to some boy who was chatting up Paris
01:21
and he walked over and introduced himself.
01:24
My wedding was beautiful.
01:26
I had a veil which got snagged on the way to the wedding.
01:32
First of all, my mother made me
01:34
40 minutes late to my wedding.
01:37
My mom I think she just gets nervous under pressure
01:40
and everyone's ready and we're about to leave Claridge's
01:44
and get in the car and head to Kensington,
01:47
and then she starts taking her hair down
01:50
and just completely changing everything.
01:53
And I'm waiting in the lobby screaming
01:56
every curse word to my sister and father
02:01
to get her downstairs.
02:03
As I got into the car,
02:07
the veil snagged on the wheel of the car
02:10
but I knew those photographers would get that shot.
02:13
That was one of the headlines,
02:15
Nicky gets run over on her way to the wedding.
