    It shouldn’t happen to a bride, let alone a celebrity bride but alas Nicky Hilton’s utterly beautiful Valentino Haute Couture bridal veil very nearly came a cropper on Saturday, when her train got caught underneath the wheel of her waiting Bentley (well of course it was going to be a Bentley, natch).

    The scene was, of course, caught in its entirety by the waiting paps as heiress Nicky emerged from Claridge’s hotel in London. Managing to avert a potential dress disaster though Nicky’s dad, Richard

    Hilton, came to the rescue in seconds and liberated the

    aforementioned-veil.

    Luckily, despite the veil looking good and caught at one point, it would

    have appeared that it didn’t suffer any noticeable damage – her

    crystal-embellished bridal outfit reportedly came with a £50,000 price

    tag, so you’d hope not at any rate.

    However, the bride herself handled the situation like a pro before

    getting into her waiting carriage to marry James Rothschild at a

    star-studded ceremony at Kensington Palace.

    So all’s well that ends well, right?
