Rapper Kanye West was looking for models to present the new collection of his fashion label 'Yeezy'. What could be more obvious than asking a good old friend of his wife Kim Kardashian? Paris Hilton! She had the time and desire to slip into the musician's baggy leisure clothes. And we're really blown away by how deceptively similar the It girl looks to her former protégé, Kim Kardashian. Convince yourself in our clip!
The two used to be best friends and business partners
Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton were once BFFs, 'Best Friends Forever'. Most importantly, Paris Hilton was Kim Kardashian's mentor, her big role model, even her boss to some extent – Kim Kardashian sorted out her closet as a 'stylist' in the early 2000s.
In the days when the hotelier's daughter Paris was throwing extravagant parties and paparazzi followed her every step to shoot a panty flash or other blunders, Kim Kardashian still dreamed of fame. But she learned from the best, from the woman who was perhaps the first socialite to recognize how to cleverly harness social networks and the tabloids for one's purposes. Since then, the friendship has cooled off a bit. Allegedly there is no argument.
It's quieter around Paris Hilton today. No more scandals, the public appearances are now stylish. The former master of provocative self-portrayal even gives up her DJ career and marries her boyfriend Chris Zylka.
In the flashbulbs, she was overtaken from the right by her former assistant Kim Kardashian, who has long been followed by many more people on social media than Paris Hilton. Maybe meanwhile Paris would like to benefit from Kim's fame – you have to be able to take.
