Paris Hilton’s Grammy Handbag Is Now an NFT on a Digital Ukrainian Platform

Peter Dundas is no stranger to the Grammy red carpet.The Norwegian designer, who lives in Los Angeles, dominated headlines in 2017 after creating Beyoncé’s entire wardrobe for music’s biggest night. And last night, at the 64th annual Grammy Awards in Las Vegas, eyes were on his custom yellow and orange ombré jumpsuit, made for singer-songwriter H.E.R., inspired by a look worn by Aretha Franklin in 1976.
But viewers may have missed another one of his designs at the award show: Paris Hilton’s martini-shaped handbag. Made with the backing of French vodka company Grey Goose (hence the shape), the piece is available starting Monday as an NFT through a 72-hour auction with DressX, a Ukrainian digital-only, multibrand platform.

Blue and silver, adorned with 3,404 handset Swarovski crystals, the accessory took about a month to create.

“It made sense to do something that almost felt like a piece of jewelry,” Dundas said. “That’s how I approached it, and I tried different things or sketched up different possibilities of that. But I ended up just landing on something that felt very instinctual, which was the martini glass itself as a minaudière, like a clutch or a jeweled bag, and went from there.”

The design process was nothing but “fun,” Dundas said. Laughing, he added, “And it’s somewhat quite close to me for a personal reason, as a martini drinker.”
How does he take it?
“Very dirty, with three olives.”

It was a “no-brainer” to take part in such a project, he went on. And revealing the piece at a musical event “made total sense,” he said. “I’ve always dressed musicians and artists from the music industry, and that’s really happened very much by itself. I think every mood board I have, a good 50 percent are images from musicians from the past and from the present as well. The Dundas woman and the Dundas man is quite extroverted. It’s somebody who’s not afraid to be seen.”
Dundas will show his next collection in May, he revealed, but first, the brand will unveil its latest line with Revolve, as part of a partnership with the e-tailer, during Coachella. It’ll be his first time taking part in an activation during the music festival.
“I’m super excited to be doing that,” he said. “I’ve obviously been to Coachella before. I love festivals. But it will be a new experience. The world is kind of opening up again. Obviously, there are situations in this world that we have to be very mindful of, but I think, at the same time, people need to enjoy themselves. They need to have moments of decompression. They need to have moments where you can smile, where you have love, have friendship around you, and cultural enjoyment, like music.”

It’s been a busy few days for Kim Kardashian. She attended her friend Paris Hilton’s wedding – a heartwarming moment for die-hard fans of the pair and their iconic matching outfits from the early ’00s – and a rehearsal wedding dinner for Simon Huck. A busy social calendar for Kim naturally comes with a slew of memorable looks that are well worth noting.

For Hilton’s Bel Air wedding to venture capitalist Carter Reum, the 41-year-old reality star and entrepreneur wore a strapless black Rick Owens dress straight off the spring/summer 2022 runway. But, considering her track record of late, the look wouldn’t be complete without some knee-high boots and oversized hoop earrings from her extensive Balenciaga collection.
At Huck’s rehearsal wedding dinner, which she attended along with her famous family, Kim opted for a full Balenciaga look. The ensemble featured a jewel-toned midnight-blue satin dress with a plunging neckline, worn with matching Knife boots in the same color and 3D-print earrings.

Earlier that day before the dinner, Kardashian posted another full Balenciaga outfit, proving that if it ain’t broken, don’t fix it. The look consisted of a leather trench coat with exaggerated shoulders, leather trousers, sunglasses, and a classic Hourglass bag adorned with crystals. Oh, and a very necessary water bottle also from the Parisian powerhouse, because, well, why not?
