About Paris Hilton
She’s young. She’s rich. She loves to party. Paris Hilton’s rise to fame came just as Americans’ thirst for celebrity culture, reality TV, and the Internet started to ramp up. The two became an instantly perfect pair.
Modeling. Acting. Shopping. Tiaras. Plunging necklines. Bleach-blond hair. BFFs. Glitter, glitter, and more glitter, with some designer puppies thrown in for good measure. In the early 2000s Paris was everywhere: endorsement deals, product lines, The Simple Life, Paris Hilton’s My New BFF, even a now-infamous sex tape. She was known to dress up in Playboy-bunny-like costumes, and she appeared on the cover of the March 2005 Playboy, which labeled her “sex star of the year.” By the end of the decade she had been behind bars for several driving infractions, including a DUI.
Since then she’s mostly focused on expanding her various clothing and accessory lines oversees and launching herself as a DJ. How did she become so much larger than life?
Paris is the great-granddaughter of Hilton Hotels founder Conrad Hilton, and she and her sister Nikki took the socialite scene by storm, the family’s money in their manicured hands. Thanks to connections at modeling agencies and with producers, Paris was represented by T Management, Donald Trump’s agency, as a teenager. Doors opened for the platinum blonde from there.
As she explained in her book “Confessions of an Heiress,” “That is what being an heiress means to me: being in charge. After all, if you have money and certain advantages, no one should be in charge of your life but you. Especially after the age of 21. “I’m 23 now, but in a lot of ways, I always took matters into my own hands. I knew I wanted to be a model, actress, and singer from a pretty young age, so I told my parents, and they could tell I was serious.”
