Nicky Hilton, who is having her chihuahua dyed pink for an upcoming fashion show, on why she's designing handbags when she doesn't need the money: "I just wanted to do something for young girls. Not every girl can afford a Prada bag or a Gucci bag. They're fun yet sophisticated." How much? "Maybe $125 to $400." Mom Kathy brags about older daughter Paris's literary inclinations: "She said, `I've read two Jackie Collins books.'"
