Nicky Hilton unleashed her animal instinct in a leopard print coat when she was spotted pounding the pavement in New York on Thursday.
Just a few days before Christmas, the 40-year-old little sister of Paris Hilton surfaced in the city that never sleeps to run an errand.
She draped her eye-catching wrap over an ensemble that was otherwise completely black, in a typical example of Manhattan chic.
Her skintight leather trousers matched her boots, and she brought the look together with a simple black scarf and quilted handbag.
With her signature blonde hair swept back into a ponytail, the leggy socialite chatted on the phone as she headed up the street.

Her latest outing comes one day after she celebrated her eldest daughter Teddy’s birthday by taking her to the Radio City Christmas Spectacular.
Nicky and her husband James Rothschild share three children – Teddy, six, Lily-Grace, five, and a one-year-old son whose name she has not disclosed.
Teddy’s sixth birthday celebration at Radio City Music Hall included Nicky’s dashing brother Baron Hilton II and his pregnant wife Tessa Gräfin von Walderdorff.
Baron and Tessa were also accompanied by their two older children – their three-year-old daughter Milou and one-year-old son Caspian.
Tessa can trace her lineage to a branch of the Wittelsbachs, the famously eccentric Bavarian royal house that produced Wagner’s patron, the Mad King Ludwig.
Nicky married James, a grandson of the third Baron Rothschild, in 2015 in a ceremony in the Orangery at Kensington Palace with Paris as maid of honor.
Paris herself became a mother twice this year, welcoming two children via surrogacy with her venture capitalist husband Carter Reum.
They shocked the world in January when they announced the arrival of their son Phoenix, and then did so again on Thanksgiving when Paris broke the news that she now had a daughter and had called her London.

Social media was set ablaze by the baby girl’s name, with fans pointing out that the old Disney Channel sitcom The Suite Life Of Zack And Cody included a character called London Tipton (Brenda Song) who was an obvious parody of Paris.
Paris herself noticed the link between her and the sitcom character years ago, tweeting that she had realized ‘London Tipton is basically me.’
Meanwhile, Nicky gave an interview this month about the way her and Paris’ approach to the holidays has changed since they had children.
‘I mean, usually around this time of the year we’re trying to figure out what we should do for New Year’s Eve, should we go to Vegas?’ she told People. ‘But this year we’re talking about doing a trip with all the children.’
