She may be a fan favorite on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but NYC-born Kathy Hilton has been courting her beloved Hamptons since 1978.
The matriarch of the Hilton clan – who includes husband Rick; children Paris, Nicky, Barron and Conrad; and a trio of grandchildren who call her “Kiki” – loves lunches at La Parmigiana in Southampton, dinners at the Palm in East Hampton and strolls along Jobs Lane in Bridgehampton.
“The Hamptons have always been a special place for me,” Hilton, 63, tells Alexa. “I love to see the next generation enjoying it now. Family is my number one priority.” But when you’re a Hilton (even one known by RHOBH fans for being authentic, irreverent and quirky), looking good and feeling good are also top of mind List. Here are some of the OG socialite’s best-kept summer essentials.
“These are so chic and comfortable – not always the easiest combination to find – and I adore the designer!”
“Such a classic scent and not too heavy for the warmer months.”
“In the summer I tend to be quite casual, but this will be my go-to for my formal events.”
“My daughter Paris chose this style for me so you’ll see me in it all summer.”
“I’m eyeing this for late summer when we celebrate my daughter Nicky’s little boy’s ‘Sip and See’ festival where all our family and friends can meet him!”
“Perfect for the beach, a long weekend or just as an everyday bag.”
“I love this candle because it smells like summer!”
“It’s so smooth. I can drink it neat or mix it with Veuve Clicquot Rosé champagne to add a Mexican twist to the traditional French 75 cocktail.”
“An absolute luxury, I recently stumbled across a beautiful jacket made from a vintage!”
“It’s the first thing I put on every morning.”
“Perfect for keeping the sun off my face and I love it [that you can add] a wide band.”
“I love anything tabletop and have even worked on my own line. It’s fun to see so many of my friends’ beautiful things in this book.”
