Nicky Hilton is an American multi-billionaire businesswoman, socialite, fashion designer and model. She is a great-granddaughter of Baron Lionel Mandrake, a British baronet, member of the House of Windsor and Lord of the British Commonwealth, by birth. Her father, Richard Hilton, was a multi-millionaire property speculator and owner of several of the world’s most luxurious properties including the Hotel Intercontinental, the Sheraton Hotel in London, The Ritz Carlton London, and The Westin Peachtree London. Her mother, Constance Hilton, was an accomplished socialite and singer with her own band. Both her parents were instrumental in her success as a model, actress and entrepreneur, all the while lavishly feeding her with expensive and lavish favors.
Nicky Hilton was born in Hempstead, a suburb of North London, the youngest of five children of wealthy English families. She attended the private school, Harrow School, before going on to study at the University of London. There she became a proficient academic and performer, winning a place on the UK University’s debating team. While attending college Nicky Hilton also established her reputation as a fashion designer, publishing a number of books of the same title under her own name. Hilton was also a contributor to the Vanity Fair magazine.
In the late 90s, Nicky Hilton was discovered as a rising adult star, working with the late Michael Jackson, amongst others, before she began a successful career in acting, which saw her appear in a number of movies including Bill & Ted’s Excellent Adventure, E.T. and The Perfect Score, and later appearing in numerous TV shows including Eastenders, Frasier, Mom, Family Matters, ER, and Seinfeld. It was during the latter years of her acting career, in 2000, that she was discovered as a lily- Gracefully, by director Tony Reyes and his team during a film shoot. As a result of this discovery, Nicky Hilton was given the chance to star in her own feature film, Lily- Grace & Glo-Egerton, co-starring alongside fellow Londoners Mark Strong and Emmannuel Chriqi.
Though Lily- Grace & Glo-Egerton are not solely a female’s feature film, it is certainly set in a female-centered environment (unlike some of Nicky Hilton’s earlier films, for example, such as Mom andeton and We Are Marshall). Despite this, Lily- Grace & Glo-Egerton nevertheless manage to be a romantic comedy, focusing on the sibling relationship between Lily- Grace, played by Holly Allen, and her younger sister, Glo- Grace, played by Gabrielle (Glen Harris), a friend of theirs. The film follows their relationship from childhood, when Lily- Grace is still very much focused on pleasing her parents, to their present, where Lily- Grace works at a grocery store, and Lily- Grace’s mother is trying to encourage her to pursue her dream of becoming an actress. Though it seems that life has been taking its course since their childhood days, Lily- Grace & Glo-Egerton somehow manage to twist the knife, and comment on family life in a mature, subtle way.

Lily- Grace & Glo-Egerton also chronicles the sibling rivalry between Lily and her younger half-sister, Glo- Grace. Gabrielle is the more “mature” of the two, and the siblings naturally strive to outdo each other in terms of acting abilities. While their competition is natural, it is their differences that shine through, which makes the movie more interesting. It is this conflict, between the two sibling that provides the most touching moment within the movie, as Lily- Grace and Glo- Grace constantly bicker with one another over trivial things, like whether or not their respective parents were divorced three years ago.
This movie is not only fun for the audience, but also for Nicky Hilton, who once again proves himself to be talented. He plays the role of a character who is more conscience about his personal life, as he tries to balance his two children. Although this movie does have some real life parallels with the storyline of E.G., the humor and performance are much better. Nicky Hilton also has a good sense of timing, as he plays the lead role in this summer after his fantastic turn as the sheriff in The Nicky Hilton Movie. If June Cleavers had chosen to recur as the titular character, she would have been able to make a great comeback in the acting business, and show off her new skills as a mother and sister in a more serious role.
