With Paris Hilton becoming recently engaged to model and actor, Chris Zylka, it’s a perfect time as ever, to delve deeper into the heiress’ empire, and get to know the real Paris Hilton.
Infamously known for her dizzy persona and acting as an airhead, rather than heiress, alongside best-friend Nicole Richie, Paris dominated reality TV and global stardom. However, as the saying goes “trends come and go” Paris turned the tables and became a one-woman powerhouse.
As a career woman who has self-branded her name with clothing lines, shoes, and beauty products, the one item that there is no denying is a success and money-maker, is her range of perfumes, such as Gold Rush, and Rose Rush fragrance. According to Don Loftus, Executive Vice President of Perfumania, Hilton sells $200 million worth of perfume annually, and after 10 years in the business (Gold Rush is her 20th fragrance), sales are up 41% percent in Mexico, her number one market.
Aside her branding career, Paris is still the life of the party, but not as we once knew her, today she is making serious money for event appearances and as a celebrity DJ, for some of the most exclusive parties and VIP clubs globally. Paris states “Now I mostly focus on my empire and my brand, rather than everything else that comes with the reality star kind of life” and that “she spends her time working, rather than just enjoying herself and being on vacation”.
Not one to shy away from social media, Paris claims the importance of social media within her business (she has 8.1 million followers on Instagram, 17.7 million followers on Twitter and 7.8 million followers on Facebook) and evidently, we get a glimpse into her lifestyle and love life, and her relationship with Chris.
Paris and Chris, first met at an Oscars party, eight years ago, but only reconnected two years ago. She’d only made their relationship Instagram-official in February 2017, since she has posted countless cute couple snaps, mainly of events and parties they attend together. To most recently her engagement in snowy Aspen, that went viral. Paris apparently didn’t see the proposal coming. “I was so excited and surprised! I immediately said yes”, she says. Her ring, that everyone is talking about is a major deal! The massive pear-shaped engagement ring was designed by celebrity jeweller; Michael Greene. The striking engagement ring is a 20-carat pear-shaped diamond, is reportedly worth $2 million, “The ring was so gorgeous and sparkling. I was shaking as I put it on. It is the most beautiful ring that I have ever seen!” Hilton added.
Though there’s no word on the pair’s wedding plans yet, we have no doubt Paris’s nuptials will be all types of wonderful.
However, with a more real, business savvy Paris, she says she’s still a “fun person” who thinks “it’s boring to be totally grown up,” and enjoys nothing more than furrowing sceptical eyebrows. “For beautiful women, people don’t look past that to see they are actually intelligent as well, and I love proving people wrong. It’s my favourite thing!
