Time to party! Nicky Hilton was the picture of elegance when she married love James Rothschild at Kensington Palace in London on Friday, July 10. After the wedding, though, she swapped out her stunning, white lace Valentino gown for a sexier, more playful look.

The blushing bride was photographed upon returning to Claridge's Hotel late Friday night in a short, sparkly minidress with sheer cutouts and all-over silver sequins. She paired the party-ready frock with beaded pumps and a small white purse. 

Beauty-wise, she styled her long blonde locks in loose curls — a stark contrast to the sleek updo she rocked for her nuptials. Peachy blush, black mascara, and a rose lip completed the look.

As previously reported, the 31-year-old 365 Style author said "I do" to her banking heir beau at the Orangery inside Kensington Gardens. Sister Paris served as a bridesmaid, donning a Cinderella-esque baby-blue gown and glittery heels for the occasion.

A source tells Us Weekly that the bride's cousin Whitney Davis also played a part in the ceremony, by singing during the service. Guests included Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star (and Hilton's aunt) Kyle Richards, as well as Kate Beckinsale and Chelsea Clinton, whose husband Marc Mezvinsky is friends with the groom. 

Hilton and Rothschild got engaged in August 2014 after meeting at Petra Ecclestone and James Stunt's wedding back in 2011.
