The ladies of the Hilton family are continuing their full-force assault on culture. WWD reports that Kathy Hilton, spawner of Paris and Nicky, may end up being a partial owner of the French brand Charles Jourdan. An investment group that includes Hilton and her husband, Rick, is mulling a purchase of the bankrupt design house. If it happens, the president of Charles Jourdan hopes to release a shoe line designed by the Hilton matriarch. But WWD warns this isn't Kathy's only foray into your personal space: "In addition to fashion, Kathy Hilton is checking into the beauty world," reports the trade paper. "Hilton will appear today on HSN at 6 a.m., 11 a.m. and 4 p.m. to tease her upcoming PureBotanical skin care line and her My Secret fragrance." Good gracious! She's everywhere. What is her secret, do you think? Is it that her sister was the little girl in Escape to Witch Mountain? Or is it just that she's tired of being the brains behind this whole Hilton juggernaut and wants her own moment in the sun?

As for the collection itself, Nicky drew her inspiration from bling. See for yourself how it all played out.
