Paris Hilton’s Latest Venture: Shoe Designer!
If there’s one thing Paris Hilton is obsessed with — aside from her menagerie of furry pets and rock star boyfriend, of course — it’s fashion. Not content just wearing the latest look, the heiress has built up a mini-empire of numerous lines of clothing and accessories. PEOPLE caught up with the reality star at the Macy’s Vegas launch of her latest venture, Paris Hilton Footwear. “I love shoes and I think every girl loves shoes,” she explains of her choice to branch out into pumps and flats. “I already have clothing and purses and watches and other fashion accessories so I thought it would be perfect to dress head to toe in me!” Aside from being her very own muse, the jetsetter finds easy inspiration all around her. “Just from traveling all around the world and going to fashion shows and being in Saint Tropez and seeing different shoes everywhere, you feel inspired. So, when I go down and have my design meetings I know exactly what I want in a shoe.” Fortunately for her fans, Paris Hilton Footwear isn’t all style and no substance — the star also kept comfort in mind. “They have a little heart padding which no shoe has, so with the pads the bottom of your feet are really comfortable and you can dance all night long in them.” And you don’t need Paris’s trust funds to buy them — the shoes will retail for $59-$195.
