Jimmy Choo for UGGLeave it to to flaunt the fact that she gets all the designer pieces months before us common folk can even admire them in a store. This time, she’s showing off her Jimmy Choo for UGG footwear, which isn’t supposed to hit stores until October.

“Love my new Jimmy Choo Uggs!” she wrote on her .

For once, the pair of boots are one item that are most likely not going to be envied by many. After all, they do resemble something one would find in the children’s shoe aisle of K-Mart. No matter how talented and beloved the designer (nor how comfortable the footwear is, either!), there’s really no beautifying a pair of UGGs.

Even still, Jimmy Choos are Jimmy Choos—people will still want to snatch up a pair of these hideous boots for $1,000 if it bears the designer’s name.

Nicky Hilton and sister Paris shoppingMoving on from her handbag designing, has created a costume jewelry collection.

The 26-year-old heiress, who has previously designed handbags and had her own clothing line, has fulfilled a long-held ambition by teaming up with Titan Brands for the “affordable” range.

“I’m a crazy jewelry collector. I’ve always known since I was a teenager that I wanted to do a line. Whenever I bought something, whether at a flea market in Paris or a bazaar in India, I’ve been collecting pieces.”

Nicky claims she has been approached by “tons and tons” of different firms but only agreed a deal when she met Chad C. Haggar, Titan Brands’ CEO.: “He really shared my vision of high quality without the high price tags.”

The line is divided into three collections, Art Deco - which is inspired by jewelry worn by her mother and grandmother - the classic Deco pieces in Spike, and Snakes, which is described as “contemporary edgy.” Priced wholesale from $35 to $480, the range will be sold exclusively through Endless.com from the autumn, before Nicky embarks on plans to expand though department and specialty stores.

Paris Hilton goes fishingAlthough known for her princess style and love of sparkles, Paris Hilton says she’s a tomboy.

The socialite says that despite her glamorous, party-loving image, she has a secret active side and claims she is “totally different” away from the cameras.

“I still am a tomboy. I love to go fishing. I love sports. I used to play ice hockey. You know, I think people only see the glamour and the parties, but when I’m at home I’m completely different.”

Despite her comments, Paris’ mum Kathy says the star is a “hair fanatic” and only launched her range of hair extensions because she couldn’t bear being without her favorite luxuries on The Simple Life.

“She’s a hair fanatic. That’s why with The Simple Life she decided to do those hair extensions, because she went crazy thinking ‘I’m going to be without a blow-dryer for four weeks!’” Kathy said.

Paris’ latest products are The Celebrity Styler flat iron and Ultimate Brush, which her sister Nicky says would have been ideal for her to work on. She told People, “She’s always loved experimenting with different makeup and hairstyles, so I think this product is a lot of fun for her.”
