Bio


Paris Hilton is an American heiress, socialite, television personality, businesswoman, fashion designer, model, actress, producer, DJ, author and singer.

She is the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton, the founder of Hilton Hotels. Born in New York City and raised in both California and New York, Hilton began a modeling career as a teenager when she signed with Donald Trump's modeling agency, T Management. Her hard-partying lifestyle and rumored short-lived relationships with Leonardo DiCaprio and Oscar de la Hoya led her to earn a position as a fixture in entertainment news. For her notoriety as a socialite, Hilton was hailed by the media as "New York's leading It Girl" in 2001.

Hilton gained significant attention for the reality series "The Simple Life" in 2003. A huge success, the show brought Hilton and co-star Nicole Richie to international recognition. Hilton then released her 2004 autobiography "Confessions of an Heiress: A Tongue-in-Chic Peek Behind the Pose." She then landed a supporting role in the 2005 horror film "House of Wax" and recorded the 2006 music album Paris. She later starred in the series "Paris Hilton's My New BFF" and its two spin-offs, "Paris Hilton's British Best Friend" and "Paris Hilton's Dubai BFF." Hilton has since done a voice role in the TV movie "The Dog Who Saved Christmas Vacation" and appeared in the reality show "The World According to Paris." She recently had a part in Sofia Coppola's independent film "The Bling Ring."

In recent years, she has parlayed her media fame into a fashion line and various perfumes with her celebrity endorsement—her fragrances have reportedly earned $1.5 billion. Currently, there are 44 Paris Hilton Stores worldwide, and her brand includes perfumes, handbags, watches and footwear, among other products.
