Paris Whitney Hilton (born February 17, 1981) is an American socialite, actress, businesswoman, fashion designer and musician. She is the great-granddaughter of Conrad Hilton (founder of Hilton Hotels). Born in New York City and raised in California and New York, Hilton began a modeling career as a teenager when she was with Donald Trump's modeling agency, T Management. Her hard-partying lifestyle and rumoured short-lived relationships with Leonardo DiCaprio and Oscar de la Hoya led her to earn a position as a daily fixture in entertainment news gossip-section Page Six, of the New York Post often includes articles about Hilton. Being known as a socialite, Hilton was hailed by the media as 'New York's leading It Girl' in 2001. She went on to make cameo appearances in Zoolander (2001), Wonderland and The Cat in the Hat (both 2003).
