She and her sister Paris are usually at the forefront of the latest fashion trends, thanks mainly to their almost limitless bank balance.
However Nicky Hilton appears to have slipped behind the Hollywood pack with her latest wardrobe choice.
The heiress, 27, stepped out in the popular $50 striped dress that has been adopted by several actresses over the last month.
Nicky was pictured heading to a pharmacy in West Hollywood to pick up some health foods.
She wore the dress with a pair of black flats, hiding her face under a fedora and sunglasses with her shoulder bag slung across her upper body.
The sister of socialite Paris Hilton is the latest in a long line of Hollywood stars to snap up the dress, made by high street chain Express.
Fashion website Stylelist.com was the first to highlight the popularity of the bargain dress when Zoe Saldana and Emmy Rossum both stepped out in it last week.
The Avatar actress created a sophisticated style by adding a brown belt and cross-over purse to her ensemble, while Emmy kept her look strictly summer casual in a straw hat and flip flops.
They weren’t the first U.S. stars to grab the $49.90 three-quarter length dress from the high street store, English actress Amanda Seyfried wore it while shooting in Greenwich, Connecticut a few days earlier while pregnant actress January Jones dressed up her blossoming bump with the dress in late July.
