I don’t think so. Of course by now you know that hotel heiress Nicky Hilton married billionaire prettyboy James Rothschild in a lavish fairytale wedding at Kensington Palace this past weekend, wearing an absolutely stunning lace Valentino Haute Couture gown embellished with crystals. We know that she met James at the August wedding of heiress Petra Ecclestone and James Stunt in Rome, and the two became engaged late last year when he proposed to her on Lake Como. We know that he’s ABSOLUTELY adorable (for a billionaire), and that suddenly Nicky is now the most interesting Hilton, leapfrogging over DJ sister Paris, troubled douchewad Conrad, insufferable twit Barron, and drunken Auntie Kim Richards.
But let’s really break down the nitty-gritty wedding facts, then gasp at the pictures.

Now let’s look at pics of the happy couple. Clearly, he is a catch, don’t you think? (In a Ferris Bueller sort of way)
