Paris was born February 17, 1981, the great-granddaughter
of hotel magnate Conrad Hilton. She is the niece of actresses Kim Richards (Meatballs II) and Kyle Richards (ER).
The heiress, socialite, and sometimes runway model lives with her sister, handbag designer and fellow socialite Nicky Hilton,
in a four-story 1920's mansion in the Hollywood Hills. Paris and best friend Nicole Richie (Lionel's daughter) "star"
together in The Simple Life, a reality TV show in which the girls trade their rarefied world for
life on a farm in Arkansas. Though she had to leave behind the considerable comforts of home, Paris was able to bring
along her beloved Chihuahua, Tinkerbell. Her most notable appearance in film was a cameo in the Ben Stiller film Zoolander
in which she played herself.
