Her name is on everyone's lips, but can she help it if she was born rich and famous? Here's a bird's eye view of the fast, fun world of Paris Hilton, packed with enough photos, advice and inside scoop to help anyone become an heiress and live a privileged life. Socialite, fashion icon, television and movie star, recording artist and just plain celebrity: Twenty-two year old Paris Hilton is the great granddaughter of hotel magnate Conrad Hilton and is estimated to be worth USD30 million. The world first became aware of Paris Hilton through a Vanity Fair profile in 2000. Since then, she has graced the pages of countless magazines, newspapers, and tabloids; modeled on the runways of top designers; appeared on television shows as herself ('Saturday Night Live', MTV Music Awards) and as fictional characters (the new Sky One show 'Las Vegas'); had small parts in movies like 'The Cat in the Hat', 'Win a Date with Tad Hamilton' and the upcoming 'The Hillz'; has begun work on an album; and starred in a hit reality series, 'The Simple Life' (shown here on Channel 4). She has been romantically linked with current boyfriend Nick Carter of the Backstreet Boys, Rick Solomon (of the notorious sex tape), and Deryck Whibley of Sum 41.

From Publishers Weekly:

Heiress, socialite, model, actress, singer and media darling Hilton loves her life, knows how to get what she wants and matter-of-factly explains how anyone can be a glamorous, fun-loving, tiara-wearing heiress just like her. Bursting with photos of Hilton in trademark poses or with friends and family, her "confessions" are hardly scandalous, other than divulging that her hair is (gasp) naturally curly, she reveals few intimate details about herself, coyly referring to a famous scandal that once plagued her as "something I wasn't too proud of", but they display an energetic and earnest young woman fiercely loyal to her family and closest friends and determined to enjoy herself no matter what the consequences. Lightheartedly describing the "Paris Diet" (eat as much chocolate as you can, eat popcorn at night, never take diet pills) and admitting "I'm really bad about washing my face and using skin products," Hilton's indulgent and sometimes reckless lifestyle might not be sensible for everyone, but her advice to "channel your own inner heiress, create your own image, and project an extreme sense of confidence" is an empowering message for young women. Though much of the book consists of laundry lists of her favorite designers, body products, hair stylists, cities, etc., Hilton endears herself to readers by being the first to critique herself, even dedicating a chapter to photos of her fashion mistakes, and by encouraging aspiring heiresses, or girls who want to feel like one, to "always act like you're wearing an invisible crown. I do. And it's always worked for me."
