Firstly, Hilton has incredibly made her career as a media personality. She brilliantly makes her first move by doing several cameo appearances as a kick start in film industry. Some of them are Zoolander, Wonderland and The Cat in the Hat. These movies are not good for nothing but give mutual benefit to both Hilton and the movie itself, since the power of Hilton is actually create an interesting point in the movie where everyone would curious to have a look. As the consequences, this had brought the attention of other producer to feature her in their films such as New Lives, Raising Helen, The Hillz and not to mention, House of Wax. In addition, her roles as Paige Edward in House of Wax won the Teen Choice Award for “Best Scream” and earn her a nomination for “Choice Breakout Performance-Female”. No wonder she got the honor since most critics has responded positively to her performance in films.
Her success in House of Wax was again repeated in Repo! The Genetic Opera. Hilton had been refused to audition for the role Ember Sweet, but everyone in the audition room was charmed immediately as she enters (Bousman, 2008).
Instead of her brutal appearance in House of Wax and Repo! The Genetic Opera, her cuteness can notably spotted with her skinny ex-BFF co starred, Nicole Richie in reality series, The Simple Life for 5 seasons. Besides, her popularity and talent had drag her to be invited as a guest-star in bunch of popular TV show like The O.C., The George Lopez Show, Las Vegas, and even Veronica Mars. Furthermore, her prettiness was spotted in several music videos, including ‘It Girl’ by John Oats and also ‘Just Lose It’ by Eminem.
Rather than stay cute, Hilton had back with her semi-cameo appearance in the bloody horror TV-show, Supernatural season 5. Humorously, she played a demotic creature which takes the form of Paris Hilton herself!
Besides, she also has known as a recording artist, joining the other singer-actress celebrity like Lopez, and Duff. She is not as blind as the stars, jumping to singing career out of sudden; the move was made seriously and passionately by Hilton. According to Bausman (2008, as cited in Powers, 2008) said, "We gave her some music and said, 'You have one day to come back and perform this.' She came back the next day, memorized everything, was pitch-perfect, I mean she was awesome”.
As the founder of Heiress Record, which is the sub-label of Warner Bros Record, Hilton had intensely collaborate with the famous Lil Jon, which is Usher’s producer hit song “Yeah!” to produce her self-titled album, Paris. Hilton is just so sexy and Jon had just managed to capture her sexiness on a record which is why she could easily sell a million quick. There was no surprise that the album reached no. 6 on the Billboard 200 for a week.
Well, that is not good enough to verify the Paris quality since Stars Are Blind never hit the first place. But the fact that the single had managed to reach top 10 in more than 17 countries including Malaysia’s country chart is actually a good indication.
Anyhow, a sudden change in path might drive the public jump to a conclusion that her new album will be just another amateur low quality album; but guess what, The album, Paris, had been commented as more fun than anything released by Britney Spears or Jessica Simpson and a lot fresher too ( Allmusic, 2006).
Moreover, entrepreneurship is also one of Hilton’s preferred careers. The heir is a genius in expanding her name and empire. She did some small favor for Amazon.com in making jewelry line. Then, it is appeared that her pieces were in the top 20 out of 100,000 items at Amazon.com. Plus, she also helps the Japanese label, Samantha Thavasa in designing collection of purses in contributing her creativity in fashion world.
In December, with Fred Khalilian, a Florida-based businessman who made his fortune in the fitness world, Ms. Hilton opened Club Paris in Orlando. She plans to open another outpost in Miami in August and another in Las Vegas on New Year's Eve. Mr. Khalilian splits the profits with Ms. Hilton and reportedly paid her seven figures to join forces.
On top of that, a fitness club, Club Paris was opened by Hilton which again works in partnership with Fred Khalilian, a Florida-based fitness world businessman, in Orlando. Another couple of outpost was planned to be opened at Miami and Last Vegas as Khalilian agreed to split the profits. It was reported that seven figures bucks is paid to Paris to join the forces (Hilton, 2004 as cited in New York’s Times, 2005).
As she sold millions copy of album and appear in bunch of smash hits movies in the entertainment industry, the fans are charmed with her fame and started to become her customer then. No matter how many perfume did she made, people will buy them. Both men and women are in her target as she started her perfume line through Parlux Fragrances since 2004. Since 2004 until now, Hilton is very passionate in creating her own fragrances by mixing a great deal kind of floral basis. Some of them are Just Me, Heiress / Heir, Can Can, Fairy Dust; and the latest was Siren which was put up for sale since summer 2009. Plus, she is still working on her new fragrance, Marilyn Monroe which is coming this 2010.
