Did the famous socialite invent the selfie?

Just when you thought you’ve heard it all, now celebutante Paris Hilton believes she invented the selfie!

ICYDK, in a recent interview for W Magazine, Paris claimed that she was always ahead of her time. For instance, she believed the new trends that we are seeing on the runway are the styles she used to wear a decade ago. She also noted that she was one of the first television reality stars.

Paris said, “If a beeper had a camera, I would have taken a selfie with it. I think I have a selfie from when I was a little kid, like on a disposable camera.” So, maybe we have Paris to thank for inventing the selfie, social media and the latest fashion trends? Indeed, regarding her contribution to fashion, she said, “To now see thins on the runway, and to see girls wearing things that I used to wear is really cool because nobody really dressed like me back in the day. Young people now see what people wore before and want to bring it back.” Okay, she did wear a lot of black and chokers a decade ago, so maybe there is some truth in what she is saying?

So, being the innovator that she is, what else did Paris say is important? Track suits. She said, “Always wear ones that are colorful, or else you’ll look like you’re actually going to the gym. Ew.” She is also partial to graphic tees, tiaras, rhinestones and extremely short skirts. She explained, “Skirts should be the size of a belt. Life’s short. Take risks.”

And last but not least, you should have multiple phones. She explained, “You should have at least three phones and they should all be bedazzled.” Incidentally, Paris has five phones.

Well, there you have it. Life according to Paris!

You might have seen me as the face of Stila, Clear Essence, Nars, Herbalife, Youthful Luster Skincare and Classified Cosmetics. I was a model with the Wilhelmina Agency in Los Angeles for several years. I’ve also been an actor for over a decade and learned a lot about beauty, skincare and fashion in the process. I've worked with everyone from "hairstylist to the stars" Chris McMillan to makeup legend Paul Starr. I’m asked by women, “Excuse me, what lotion do you use?” “What do you use on your hair? I’ve been stopped on elevators, in the mall, restaurants, you name it. And I’ve received emails from as far away as Japan and South America from complete strangers asking me about beauty tips. I’m not saying this to toot my own horn, but to illustrate the fact women ask me about skincare, makeup and fashion. A lot. I believe in every woman's ability to be beautiful. And what I’ve learned, I’d love to share with you.
