Pick the correct Hilton Sisters

An extract from Robert Bogdan's "Freak Show: Presenting Human Oddities for Amusement and Profit", a marvellous book I borrowed from Duckie's Best Beloved and have thoroughly enjoyed:
"As is typical of presentations in the aggrandized mode, the Hilton Sisters were presented as attractive, engaging celebrities who were exceptionally talented, charming, happy and normal in every way except for one physical inconvenience: in their case, being born joined at the buttocks."

Exhibit 1: Paris and Nicky

Exhibit 2: Daisy and Violet
