She was never going to do things by halves, but Paris Hilton pulled out all the stops for the wedding dress she wore down the aisle this week.

The star, 40, married venture capitalist Carter Reum, also 40, on 11 November at the former Bel Air estate of her late grandfather Baron Hilton.

Now, the businesswoman has given an insight into their luxurious nuptials on her Instagram account, including unveiling the iconic Hollywood inspiration behind her Oscar de le Renta bridal gown.  

Captioning a post of a picture of the stunning custom white, lace design, she wrote: "Ever since I was a little girl, I dreamt of my fairy tale wedding.

"I dreamt of being in a stunning gown that was beautiful, timeless and chic. I dreamt of marrying a man who was my best friend and had the sweetest, kindest heart.

"I loved Princess Grace Kelly and always thought about how she was so elegant and iconic, and I knew I wanted to be elegant like her when I walked down the aisle."

Hilton added: "My incredible @OscarDeLaRenta gown transformed me into the bride I knew I would one day become. It was right out of a storybook. Dreams do come true."

Indeed, the bride's dress resembles the high-necked, taffeta gown worn by actress Kelly when she married Rainier III of Monaco in 1956.

The post has received over 793,000 'likes', with the official Barbie account among the 7,000 sharing their congratulations.

Speaking to Vogue magazine, Hilton said: "We spent months designing my dress to perfection with the amazing Oscar de la Renta designers, Fernando Garcia and Laura Kim.

"I love how it turned out. I wanted something that was timeless, elegant, chic, and iconic, and I am so happy."

Her older sister Nicky Hilton was one of her bridesmaids, while among the guests was friend and former stylist Kim Kardashian – who has also shared on Instagram the black dress she wore.

The newlyweds, who have been friends for 15 years, first started dating in late 2019 before announcing their engagement in February of this year.

Their big day – as well as the run-up to it, including an Alice In Wonderland-themed hen do – will be shown in upcoming docu-series Paris In Love.
