Q&A with Kathy Hilton

I love it when designers and non-profits get together for a cause!  I was thrilled when I heard that Kathy Hilton was coming to town to celebrate her new special occasion dress collection at Saks Fifth Avenue on Friday from 2-4 and that she was donating a dress to DIFFA!  

Here are our Eight Questions with the glamorous Kathy Hilton:

Kimberly Schlegel Whitman: What is your favorite Charity?
Kathy Hilton:  It's too difficult to choose just one as I've been involved with several for many years, such as The Make-A-Wish Foundation, The Race to Erase MS, The Alzheimer's Foundation and The City of Hope.

KSW:  What is the most rewarding part of motherhood for you?
KH:   Enjoying each milestone, form their first steps to their first words to the first "A" on their report cards.

KSW: What was your first job?
KH:My first job as an adult was working in the banquet department of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel in New York.

KSW: What is one "rule" of etiquette that you want the next generation to remember?
KH:Treat others with compassion and respect.

KSW: What was the most unforgettable event you have attended?
KH: A dinner at Buckingham Palace.

KSW:  What is something you wish you knew how to do?
KH: Paint; My mother was a very talented artist. I also wish I could dance like the Prima ballerinas at the ballet.

KSW:  Who do you admire?
KH: My husband, Rick. He is a wonderful father and spouse, and is a kind, hard-working, honorable gentleman, and he is my best friend.

KSW:  What is your favorite quote?
KH: "Those that the gods destroy they first make proud."
Also… " Be grateful, be kind, and stop to smell the roses."

Kathy Hilton’s Motto: “Making a difference in the world includes being positive and a good person. Not to be judgmental. Be a listener. Stop and smell the roses. Be thankful and positive and thank God everyday for your blessings.”
