American socialite turned businesswoman Paris Hilton shares her favourite fashion trends from early 2000’s in a video with W Magazine.
I almost forgot about her existence as she has been relatively quiet in recent years. Love her or hate her, the 36-year-old has been a trendsetter regardless. At her peak she’s as famous as any top list stars.
Socialite culture, celebrity lifestyle reality shows, over the top fashion, pets as accessories, selfies, phone obsession, BFF etc. She didn’t create these stuff but she popularised these for sure.
Although she finds success as a businesswoman in recent years, I won’t call her a role model. But when you look at youngsters these days you will find them doing many things which Hilton had “pioneered”.
Those kids probably don’t even know who’s Paris Hilton, but she leaves a legacy in global pop culture.
You may say that she’s good at riding the wave instead, that the trends will become so with or without her. It’s probably true, but she still saw those earlier than most others and made it to her advantage.
