Ugg Boots Are Getting A Designer Overhaul
Huffington Post - about 1 month
By Max Berlinger for GQ. Phillip Lim is bringing his talents to the incredibly cozy (but not always stylish) iconic footwear. We've seen the rise of Birkenstocks, high-end water socks gain traction, and even the return of square-toed shoes, so when it comes to crazy footwear trends, we're pretty hard to shock. And yet, when we caught wind that Californian brand Ugg — whose boots were most famously seen on trendy teenage girls in the early aughts — was given the nod of approval by New York design whiz Phillip Lim, even we were a little taken aback. RELATED: Every Piece from the 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target Collaboration The limited-edition capsule Ugg boot collection will consist of four styles to be sold as part of the brand 3.1 Phillip Lim's fall-winter 2017 collection, to be shown next week in Paris. "As a designer, I am constantly interested in exploring unexpected elements to create new aesthetic propositions," Lim said of his riff on the classic boot silhouette, which has ...

That One Time Kim Kardashian Matched Phyllis From 'The Office'
Huffington Post - about 1 month
Before Kanye West gave away Kim Kardashian’s entire wardrobe on TV and later convinced her to only wear nude spandex shorts, the 36-year-old was taking style cues from her pal Paris Hilton and momager Kris Jenner. But it turns out Kardashian also shares a similar taste to someone else ― Phyllis from “The Office.” Thanks to Twitter user @skaime_, we finally have proof that the reality star and the Scranton, PA office worker share the same fashion sense. Back in December, @skaime_ sliced together two pictures of Kardashian and Phyllis wearing the same damn thing ― a pretty coverup. After a little digging, The Huffington Post figured out the coverup in question is the Nairobi Robe from Lotta Stensson, which retails for $429. Kim wore hers to the beach in Miami, while Phyllis donned the robe for Robert California’s extraordinarily awkward office pool party.  yall Kim K wore the same thing Phyllis wore at Robert California's pool party pic.twitter.com/jKQ3qaLLJN — Sheldon J. ...

This Blind Item Helped Launch Kim Kardashian's Career 10 Years Ago
Huffington Post - about 2 months
The Kardashians do their best to make sure everyone struggles to keep up with them, but it almost feels like the family was working overtime in 2016 to not only maintain their relevancy, but also to ensure pop culture domination.  This year alone, their seemingly never-ending drama included, but wasn’t limited to, divorces, feuds, nude selfies, health issues, a horrific robbery and a meeting with President-elect Donald Trump. That’t a lot to pack in one year, especially when it was only a decade ago that a blind item arguably helped launch Kim Kardashian’s entire career. Yes, Kim Kardashian is so much more than a sex tape, but have you ever wondered where the seedlings for the rumor that started it all began? Ten years ago this Christmas Day, AOL Black Voices writer Jawn Murray ran a blind item about an R&B singer who was shopping an X-rated home video he had made with his ex-girlfriend to adult entertainment companies. The item is, of course, referring to the tape that ...

What's The Best Thing The Duchess Of Cambridge Wore This Year?
Huffington Post - about 2 months
The Duchess of Cambridge had quite a year. She worked to end stigma surrounding mental illness, showed off her photography chops, hiked a huge mountain in Bhutan without a visible trace of sweat, hung out with the Obamas, guest edited The Huffington Post, wore tiaras, shopped at a thrift store, took a selfie with Serena Williams... the list goes on.  As usual, the former Kate Middleton did it all with the utmost style and poise. We should know, as we’ve spent many an hour this year tracking her every move.  It’s difficult to choose a favorite between the many dresses she wore (and re-wore) in 2016, so we’ve laid out our top 11 for you to choose from. We’re partial to the white Self Portrait gown, but that’s likely because we now know Kate has at least one item in her closet that none other than Paris Hilton has in hers.  Take a look and pick your favorite below.  type=type=RelatedArticlesblockTitle=Related... + articlesList=5849ced8e4b0e05aded2fc51,573f166be4b0613b5129fb1d ...

Paris Hilton Voted For Donald Trump, Because Of Course She Would
Huffington Post - 3 months
When Paris Hilton entered the voting booth on Election Day, she had two choices: vote for the candidate who vowed to fight for the rights of women and young girls or the candidate who thought she was hot as a 12-year-old. Hmm, let’s see. Yep, let’s go with the one who objectified her as a preteen! On Thursday, the heiress told Australia’s Network Ten’s “The Project,” that she indeed voted for Donald Trump, a friend of the Hilton family who signed Paris to his modeling agency as a teenager.  “I’ve known him since I’m a little girl, so, yes,” she told the TV hosts.   Is this news disappointing? Yes. We quote “Simple Life” on the daily and spent one glorious holiday weekend binge-watching the first and last season of “Paris Hilton’s Dubai BFF.” But it shouldn’t be surprising. As a reminder, 53 percent of white women voted for Trump. And if you think Hilton was going to take a stand against Trump’s assault on minority communities during ...

    THIRTIES
  • 2016
    Age 35
    In January 2016, Hilton's song "Crazy" in collaboration with DJ Poet surfaced online.
    More Details Hide Details A fixture in entertainment news for her lifestyle, Hilton attracted notoriety for her participation in 1 Night in Paris (a sex tape leaked before the first episode of The Simple Life). Some entertainment writers felt that Hilton's overnight success was due to the tape. According to Entertainment Weekly, "I dare say the Paris Hilton-Rick Salomon tape received more print and television coverage in a week than the run-up to The Simple Life received in the months since its premiere was announced. We in the media have become Paris-ites". According to People magazine, the show "no doubt was helped by the very public saga of a pirated three-year-old video tape, which recently made the rounds on the Internet showing Hilton engaged in various sex acts with ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon". Hilton's profile was higher, paparazzi began following her and her relationships, lifestyle and legal issues were targets of gossip sites and tabloid media worldwide. Critics suggest that Hilton epitomizes being famous for being famous, and she is an example of the celebutante.
  • 2015
    Age 34
    In 2015 Animoca Brands, a mobile game developer from Hong Kong, announced that they had secured a license from Hilton to use her name and likeness to produce mobile games and themes.
    More Details Hide Details
    In April 2015, it was reported that Hilton's dog Tinkerbell, who appeared with her in The Simple Life, had died at the age of 14.
    More Details Hide Details In May, Hilton's third single from her upcoming second album, "High Off My Love", was released. It eventually peaked at number three on the Billboard US Dance Club Songs chart.
  • 2013
    Age 32
    Shortly after the film's premiere at Cannes, her deal with Cash Money Records made her a trending topic worldwide on Twitter and media outlets have noted 2013 as Hilton's "pop culture renaissance" year.
    More Details Hide Details Birdman, co-founder of Cash Money Records, said that her deal "being so talked about shows the strength of her popularity." Hilton is listed on the "First Families" of the Children's Hospital Los Angeles, which means she has donated US$100,000 or more to the hospital. In 2008, a room at the CHLA was named in her honor. Hilton has had two popular television characters loosely based on her real life persona: London Tipton from The Suite Life of Zack & Cody (Tipton's father in the series is a hotel mogul) and Caroline Channing in 2 Broke Girls. The World of Warcraft massively multiplayer online role-playing game has featured a character named Haris Pilton, labeled a "Socialite", since the release of The Burning Crusade expansion on January 15, 2007. The character remains in the game as of April 2015. In 2006 Hilton licensed her name to Gameloft for their mobile video game "Paris Hilton's Diamond Quest". She made an appearance at E3 to promote the game, arriving 90 minutes late and getting the name of the game wrong.
    On the May 2, 2013 episode of The Wendy Williams Show, Hilton addressed her absence from the news, saying that she was "staying out of trouble" and had grown up.
    More Details Hide Details After her small role in The Bling Ring, writer Nancy Jo Sales said that Hilton was "enjoying a little comeback".
  • 2012
    Age 31
    In 2012 she ranked fifth on Forbes Most Over-Exposed list; according to the magazine, Hilton "is another star who hasn't been on magazine covers for a long time.
    More Details Hide Details But she was so ubiquitous at one point that the public still views her as overexposed."
    On September 20, 2012, an audio recording of Hilton making derogatory comments about gay people was posted on the Internet.
    More Details Hide Details That day, following a backlash, she issued an apology through GLAAD in which she said she was a "huge supporter of the gay community" and called gay people "the strongest and most inspiring people I know". As a result of her remarks, Logo TV canceled plans to air a documentary about her (Paris Hilton Inc). That month Hilton began a relationship with Spanish model River Viiperi, and opened a store in Mecca in early November. Since it is considered the "holiest city in the Muslim world" and Saudi Arabia is a conservative country, controversy about her personal life swirled on Twitter. In early December she modeled for designers Shane and Falguni Peacock at India Fashion Week, also appearing as a DJ. Like her debut, although her set was criticized after a YouTube video was posted the audience enjoyed it. In January 2013, Hilton appeared in four episodes of the Danish version of Paradise Hotel, for which she was reportedly paid $300,000. She also appeared in two episodes of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, in which her aunts Kyle and Kim Richards play the leads. In April, Hilton opened the 44th Paris Hilton store in Bogotá, Colombia. In May, the music video for Rich Gang's song "Tapout", in which Hilton appeared alongside Lil Wayne, Christina Milian and Nicki Minaj, premiered. That same month, it was reported that Hilton had signed with Cash Money Records and planned to release a second album sometime that year featuring collaborations with RedOne, Snoop Dogg and Flo Rida.
    She was reportedly paid $1 million for her appearance in the video, which premiered in 3D in October 2012.
    More Details Hide Details
    Hilton's footwear line was nominated for the Best Celebrity Licensee of the Year award at the 2012 International Licensing Excellence Awards and she released her fifteenth perfume, Dazzle.
    More Details Hide Details The socialite appeared in a music video for Korean singer Kim Jang-hoon, which was filmed on Malibu Beach, August 24–25, 2012. An agent for the singer said that several other Hollywood stars were considered for the lead-actress role in Kim's music video, including Jessica Alba and Scarlett Johansson. Hilton was chosen after Korean survey respondents recognized her more than the others.
    Shortly after her performance, she became a trending topic on Twitter. "Last Night" was later given to Pitbull, who included the song on his 2012 album Global Warming with Havana Brown as the lead singer.
    More Details Hide Details
    In early 2012 Hilton introduced a new line of sunglasses in Shanghai, calling the launch a "huge success".
    More Details Hide Details She then debuted as a DJ at a Brazilian pop-music festival, introducing her single "Last Night" (produced by Afrojack). Although Hilton received negative reviews after her videos were posted on YouTube from DJs Deadmau5, Samantha Ronson and Afrojack, she was praised by DJ Poet, fans and the festival audience.
    In 2012, Hilton announced her DJ career and made her debut at the São Paulo Pop Music Festival.
    More Details Hide Details Although her performance was criticized, she became one of the highest-paid celebrity DJs, holding club residencies all over the world. That same year, she also returned to music, signing a record deal with Lil Wayne's and Birdman's label Cash Money Records. Critics and admirers have said that Hilton is famous for being famous, exemplifying the celebutante: a celebrity not through talent or work, but through inherited wealth and lifestyle. She has parlayed her media fame into perfumes and a fashion line with her endorsement; her fragrances have reportedly earned $1.5 billion. There are currently three Paris Hilton apartment complexs and 44 Paris Hilton stores worldwide, with products including perfumes, handbags, watches and footwear. Hilton earns over $10 million a year from product sales. Hilton's perfume products alone have brought in over $2.5 billion in revenue, the second largest celebrity fragrance of all time behind iconic Hollywood actress Liz Taylor, who has once married to her great uncle Conrad Hilton, Jr.. and, as of 2005, was paid about $300,000 for appearances in clubs and events.

  • 2011
    Age 30
    Hilton modeled for designer Andre Tan during Ukraine Fashion Week in October 2011.
    More Details Hide Details
    Hilton opened her fourth store in the Philippines on August 18, 2011.
    More Details Hide Details In September she introduced a footwear line in Istanbul; a Paris Hilton store opened in India, with plans for eight more.
    On May 12, 2011, Hilton opened her third store in the Philippines.
    More Details Hide Details The store, in the Abreeza Mall in Davao City, featured bags, earrings, wallets, belts, caps and perfumes. On June 1, she returned to reality television in Oxygen's The World According to Paris. The show, which followed her daily life, attracted 409,000 viewers. It was not a success, however, which led to a belief that Hilton's popularity was fading. The New York Times wrote that she "is an attractive woman with proven talent for marketing and self-promotion, though as a reality heroine she seems a little passé—a Sony Walkman in an iPod era, a Friendster in the age of Facebook or, to put it in context, a single-process blonde in a triple-process world", also saying that she "appears to have plenty of boyfriends, present and ex. Paparazzi still snap her picture. But it's hard to see how she can recapture the kind of audience she enjoyed in her heyday—even by streaming her premiere live on Facebook". Hilton appeared on the show with her boyfriend, Las Vegas nightclub owner Cy Waits, with whom she broke up in June. She was labeled a "Billion Dollar Entrepreneur" by Variety magazine, and was featured on its cover.
    She modeled for a second time at the 2011 Brazil Fashion Week (her first time was in early 2010).
    More Details Hide Details In February Hilton introduced a fragrance line, the Passport Collection, with perfumes inspired by cities such as Paris, South Beach, Florida and Tokyo. The following month, she introduced a footwear collection in Mexico. Around that time, she introduced a mobile application which became available for iPhone and iPod touch.
  • 2010
    Age 29
    That year, she began dating The Hills star Doug Reinhardt; they broke up in April 2010, when she became concerned that he was using her to further his career.
    More Details Hide Details
    In December 2010, Hilton launched her motorcycle team; her Spanish driver, Maverick Vinales, won the final race and finished third overall in the 125cc world championship the following November.
    More Details Hide Details
    On September 21, 2010, on their way to a Tokyo press conference to promote fashion and fragrance lines, Hilton and her sister Nicky were stopped by immigration officers at Narita Airport because of Hilton's drug-possession conviction the previous day.
    More Details Hide Details Under Japan's strict drug laws, travelers convicted of a drug crime are usually denied entry into the country. Airport officials questioned Hilton "for hours", and she and Nicky were detained overnight at the airport hotel. On September 22 Japanese authorities denied Hilton entry, and she was put on a plane back to the United States. Other stops on their Asian promotional tour were canceled due to Indonesia and Malaysia's anti-drug laws. The critically acclaimed documentary Teenage Paparazzo, in which Hilton appeared, aired on HBO on September 27. She voiced the character of Bella in the ABC made-for-television film The Dog Who Saved Christmas Vacation in her first voice-over role, saying: "I just think it's a really cute film" and "I love animal movies, I love Christmas movies, and also, my grandmother, who passed away a couple of years ago from breast cancer, actually had a standard poodle and her name was Paris. So when I'm watching this, it's kind of like watching grandma's dog. It's kind of like a sign to me." The film aired on November 28, 2010 and received good ratings, with 2.611 million viewers.
    To avoid a felony conviction, Hilton pleaded guilty to two misdemeanors on September 17, 2010.
    More Details Hide Details Under the terms of the plea bargain she was sentenced to one year of probation, 200 hours of community service, a $2,000 fine and the completion of a drug-abuse treatment program. Clark County District Attorney David Roger said, "If she was arrested for anything besides a minor traffic violation she will spend a year in jail. There will be no discussion. The court will have no discretion."
    On July 2, Hilton was accused of smoking marijuana at the 2010 FIFA World Cup game between Brazil and the Netherlands.
    More Details Hide Details Although she was escorted from the Nelson Mandela Bay Stadium by local police, the case was later dismissed. Her publicist, Dawn Miller, said: "I can confirm that the incident was a complete misunderstanding and it was actually another person in the group who did it". Two weeks later, Hilton was detained and released after she was caught with cannabis at Corsica's Figari Sud-Corse Airport. On August 10 Hilton released her 10th fragrance, Tease, which was inspired by Marilyn Monroe. On August 19 she launched a footwear line in Las Vegas, saying about the collection (priced from $60 to $160) in an interview that she "chose the styling, design, materials and colours for the line and also wanted to make sure it was super comfortable". That month Hilton was arrested on suspicion of cocaine possession in Las Vegas and her boyfriend, Cy Waits, was charged with driving under the influence. Hilton's defense initially claimed that the handbag (containing .8g of cocaine) was not hers: "This purse in question was a high street brand – and by no means up to her high fashion standards." She later claimed personal items (including cash and credit cards) from the bag, acknowledging that it was hers.
    In February 2010 Hilton participated in an advertising campaign for the Brazilian beer Devassa Bem Loura, whose slogan roughly translates into English as "very blonde bitch".
    More Details Hide Details As part of the campaign, she rode the brewery's float in the Rio Carnival.
  • 2009
    Age 28
    In 2009, a quiet relationship between Hilton and the tabloids led entertainment writers to suggest that her popularity had waned.
    More Details Hide Details In a CNN story, "Why has Paris Hilton disappeared?", editor Samantha Yanks of Gotham and Hamptons magazines said: "Phase one was the ascension, seemingly out of nowhere. That came with a media frenzy, the antics, the partying, the music, the babe-like status and of course, the fashion label. Phase two, she disappears". Hilton's absence from the news was an apparent response to a new generation of tabloid consumers uninterested in her. This suspicion was reinforced in June 2011 when her reality show, The World According to Paris, had low ratings and Hilton walked out during an interview with Good Morning America when asked if she worried about her moment having passed. In 2011 Hilton was named one of the 100 Hottest Women of All Time by Men's Health, but according to an Ipsos poll she was the most unpopular celebrity with Americans (with 60 percent of respondents viewing her unfavorably).
    She introduced the line on October 7, 2009, and the collection became available in stores in March 2010.
    More Details Hide Details The following month, Hilton introduced a hair-and-beauty-products line which included shampoos, conditioners and hair vitamins.
    In July 2009 Hilton's sixth fragrance for women, Siren, was introduced and she won the Female Celebrity Fragrance of the Year Award at the 2009 Fifi Awards.
    More Details Hide Details Hilton was involved in the creation of a sunglass line by Gripping Eyewear.
    The second season of Paris Hilton's My New BFF premiered on June 2, 2009.
    More Details Hide Details The British series' runner-up, Kat McKenzie, died on July 3, 2009 from a suspected drug overdose. In June Hilton shot Paris Hilton's Dubai BFF, which was finally broadcast in 2011. She appeared in the fifth episode of Supernaturals fifth season.
    As a result of the American version's success, on January 29, 2009 Paris Hilton's British Best Friend debuted on ITV2 in England; Hilton began to film the show in October 2008.
    More Details Hide Details The series was successful; its first episode was watched by 428,000 viewers, and 605,000 viewers watched its finale.
    She was nominated for the 2009 Razzie Award for Worst Supporting Actress for the role.
    More Details Hide Details The film, first screened at the 2008 San Diego Comic-Con International, began a limited release in the United States and Canada on November 7, 2008. Repo! had "solid numbers" for its opening weekend, grossing $51,600 gross in eight theaters. Around that time Hilton released her fifth fragrance for women, Fairy Dust, and broke up with Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden; they had begun a relationship early that year.
  • 2008
    Age 27
    In August 2008 Worldwide Entertainment Group sued Hilton in Miami District Court, alleging that she did not fulfill her contractual agreement to provide "reasonable promotion and publicity" for the film.
    More Details Hide Details
    Hilton starred in an MTV reality series, Paris Hilton's My New BFF, about her search for a new best friend; the series premiered on September 30, 2008.
    More Details Hide Details That day she introduced her song, "My BFF" (the show's theme song), on KIIS-FM with host Ryan Seacrest. The series was a hit; 1,200,000 viewers watched the premiere episode, and it averaged a 1.6 rating among viewers 12–34 in its Tuesday 10 p.m. slot (topping all other cable shows in the time slot). Hilton's next project was a Gothic rock musical, Repo! The Genetic Opera. She played Amber Sweet, the surgery- and painkiller-addicted daughter of a biotech magnate. Horror.com said: "Not only is this by far Hilton's best role, she's actually got a grain of gravitas in the end". However, Jam! Movies called her a "hopeless twit as an actress". Hilton said, "Just getting a role like this offered to me was new to me because I always get offered a certain role just basically playing myself".
    At the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival a documentary about Hilton, Paris, Not France, was screened.
    More Details Hide Details In the film, she talks about her image in the media: "I'm basically being judged, and they're creating this false person, and I can't do anything about it". At the festival premiere, director Adria Petty said that Hilton "created a mystery about herself that a film like this maybe wouldn't have been a great thing for her in the past. But now, she's been so saturated in the media. We're so used to her. To see a new side of her is so exciting". In July 2009, the film was broadcast on MTV.
    The video, featuring Hilton in a parody advertisement, was made in response to a television campaign ad ("Celeb") by the 2008 John McCain presidential campaign.
    More Details Hide Details In "Celeb" McCain compared Barack Obama to celebrities such as Hilton and Britney Spears, questioning his readiness to lead and criticizing his energy policy. In what The Washington Post said "might just be her best acting role yet", Hilton wore a leopard-print swimsuit in the video. It had seven million views in two days, receiving worldwide press coverage and written and verbal responses from both campaigns. In October she appeared in a second parody video on Funny or Die, "Paris Hilton Gets Presidential with Martin Sheen", with Martin Sheen; Sheen's son, actor Charlie Sheen, made a cameo appearance. Hilton, in a green evening dress and wearing heavy makeup, discusses political issues with Martin Sheen in his West Wing role.
    On August 6, 2008 Hilton appeared in an online video, Paris Hilton Responds to McCain Ad, directed by Adam McKay and posted on the Funny or Die website.

    In April 2008, she appeared in the My Name Is Earl episode "I Won't Die with a Little Help from My Friends".

  • 2007
    Age 26
    In 2007, Hilton modeled for 2 B Free and introduced her fourth perfume, Can Can.
    More Details Hide Details Hilton's love for dogs led her to create a canine apparel line, Little Lily by Paris Hilton, with some of the proceeds benefiting animal rescue. "I have 17 dogs and I like to dress them, so I started designing this clothing line and it's really cute, like dresses and jeans—everything you can imagine for humans, but for dogs," she said in an interview during Super Bowl XLII.
    In December 2007 she posed nude (covered with gold paint) to promote "Rich Prosecco", a canned version of the Italian sparkling wine, traveling to Germany to appear in print ads for the wine.
    More Details Hide Details Around that time, Hilton's grandfather Barron Hilton pledged 97 percent of his estate (the Hilton family fortune) to a charitable organization founded by her great-grandfather Conrad N. Hilton: the Conrad N. Hilton Foundation. As a result, his grandchildren's inheritance was reduced. An immediate pledge of $1.2 billion (proceeds from the sale of Hilton Hotels Corporation) was made, with a further $1.1 billion due after his death. Barron cited the actions of his father, Conrad N. Hilton, as the motivation for his pledge.

    More Details Hide Details On June 7, Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca signed an order resentencing Hilton to 40 days of home confinement with an electronic monitoring device due to an unspecified medical condition. Baca said, "My message to those who don't like celebrities is that punishing celebrities more than the average American is not justice." He added, "The special treatment, in a sense, appears to be because of her celebrity status... She got more time in jail". Judge Michael Sauer summoned her to reappear in court the following morning (June 8), since her original sentence specified imprisonment: "No work furlough. No work release. No electronic monitoring." At the hearing, Sauer declined a briefing in chambers by Hilton's attorney on her medical condition and sent her back to jail to serve the original 45-day sentence. When she heard the decision, Hilton shouted "It's not right!" Screaming, she asked to hug her mother. Hilton was moved to the medical wing of the Twin Towers Correctional Facility in Los Angeles, and returned to the Century Regional Detention Facility in Lynwood on June 13.

On May 4, Hilton was sentenced by Judge Michael T. Sauer to 45 days in jail for the probation violation. She planned to appeal the sentence, supporting an online petition (created on May 5 by Joshua Morales) asking California governor Arnold Schwarzenegger for a pardon. A counter-petition to maintain the sentence was posted. Hilton changed lawyers and dropped her plans to appeal.
    On January 22, 2007, her private life became public on ParisExposed.com, a website with images of personal documents, video and other material allegedly obtained when the contents of a storage locker rented by Hilton were auctioned in lieu of a $208 payment.
    More Details Hide Details The website, which charged for online access to the material, had 1.2 million visitors in just over 40 hours. Among its contents were medications, diaries, photographs, contracts, love letters and a video shot by Joe Francis of Girls Gone Wild.
