This week, Paris Hilton – the first ever celebrity to be known as an influencer – has released a documentary on her life and career. The heiress turned overnight into a global celebrity sensation back in the early 2000s and built a persona and image which to this day maintains its popularity in many industries: beauty, fashion and even music.
The ridicule often associated with Paris is very much shaken with the drop of this new documentary. Exploring childhood trauma and the sex tape scandal, Paris is put in a whole different light. Throughout the video, the celebrity reflects a lot on her conservative upbringing and revolt against the rules and values she was brought up with. For the first time ever, the mask she has often adopted in front of the cameras, is coming off. We now can finally see that behind her ‘I don’t care’ façade, Paris has gone through hurt and disappointment both in her personal life, as well as in her career.
This is Paris Official Trailer
Paris has found over the years ways to reinvent herself and stay relevant in US pop culture, as well as overseas. Not much concerned with building a family or getting married – as she often finds it hard to trust the people around her and especially men- Paris stays to this day career driven and young at heart. This comes as no surprise. After all, she was the first ever celebrity that normalised being chased by the paparazzi and having her every move scrutinised by the public – a perfect showcase of 21st Century glitz and glamour.
As much as a fashion icon as anything else, Paris used to be the trend setter of the early 2000s. She has normalized everything from wearing tracksuits to adopting an all-Barbie look. Paris Hilton also pivoted brand names such as Juicy Couture and Von Dutch, which are making a comeback today through the e-girls and vintage-obsessed influencers of TikTok and Instagram. With an iconic collection of jewellery, bags and shoes, Paris’s closet has become every girl’s dream. Below, see how you can dip into your spoilt-princess self and introduce in your modern wardrobe trends and pieces which seemed to stay forever forgotten.
