Paris Hilton Fashion Style Icon

Laura Tolentino

Paris Hilton, known for her catchphrases and iconic fashion from the early ’00s, recently launched a collaboration with fast fashion retailer Boo Hoo to update some of her most-famous trends (such as matching tracksuits) in an updated way.

From mini skirts to pink lace gowns, here are seven of Hilton’s iconic fashion styles which have made a comeback RN.

1. Julien Macdonald Chainmail Dress

Hilton hotel heiress Paris Hilton may be known for her stylish ’00s looks (such as low-waisted Juicy Couture tracksuits) but there’s one mini dress that she considers her favourite of all time – a silver Julien Macdonald chainmail dress worn for her 21st birthday celebration back in 2002.

Hilton made waves across social media and front covers when she debuted the iconic mini dress, pairing it with sparkly heels, a diamond choker necklace and two Tinkerbell purses for a party ensemble that became iconic.

Hilton made headlines last year for wearing another version of her minidress to a party in Los Angeles, combining it with glittery stiletto heels, thick choker necklace and fingerless gloves to complete her ensemble.

At Klarna x Paris Hilton House of Y2K event in March 2023, she donned the same minidress again during a DJ set and accessorized it with more glitzy accessories, such as sparkly choker necklace, glittery clutch and pink Tinkerbell purses. As evidence of her admiration of this trend, the entrepreneur recently announced her plans to create clothing lines featuring “new designs” featuring these trendy looks! We can’t wait to see what this next phase holds!

2. Anne Bowen Maxi Dress

Anne Bowen stands out in the world of celebrity dressing thanks to her hands-on approach and hands-on dresser philosophy, working closely with clients to find what best fits them, even inviting them directly into dressing rooms!

Bowen has designed an exquisite short gown made of layers of soft raw-edged chiffon fabric embroidered with delicate birds and flowers for brides looking for something edgy to add an element of seduction into their wedding. It’s the ideal dress to add an unforgettable element of romance!

Last year Hilton made headlines when she debuted an Anne Bowen ensemble on the red carpet: an eye-catching pink cowl-neck minidress with dramatic padded shoulders paired with matching pointed-toe pumps and an exquisite long veil.

Hilton made her Anne Bowen debut this week at the Mugler fashion show in Paris, choosing an eye-catching black maxi dress featuring dramatic lace overlay and see-through details that clung closely to her skin. Hilton completed the look with latex thigh-high boots and gold hoops pierced into her ears for added edge.

Bowen took an innovative approach to her fall 2009 bridal gown collection with this dress inspired by one of New York City’s buildings – adding architecture into bridal wear is an innovative concept which could easily be replicated in future collections.

3. 2 B Free Off-the-Shoulder Midi Dress

Paris Hilton may be a household name in celebrity culture, but she also stands as an iconic fashion figure. The heiress, DJ and reality star is widely credited with popularizing an understated casual So-Cal style featuring large sunglasses and low-waist jeans; moreover, her signature Velour Track Suits were so influential they even created their own wave of trends!

Hilton x TikTok collaboration provides stylish options that will help channel your inner Parisian this spring and summer, such as ’90s-inspired denim skirts and handkerchief print mini dresses. Complete the look with platform sandals and an eye-catching shoulder bag to complete the look.

No matter where or when it is worn, Paris Hilton-inspired red lace is sure to turn heads this season. Wear this midi dress paired with pink Valentino pumps and an eye-catching tennis bracelet in her honor and embody Paris’ signature glitz!

4. Gripping Eyewear Plaid Skirt

Paris Hilton, as an heiress, DJ, business mogul and mother – is unstoppable. An iconic entrepreneur and style chameleon, Paris is still making waves today; having left behind her 90s style tracksuit for something fresher. Her iconic butterfly motif and Tinker Bell-themed clothing alongside cheeky slogan tees serve as reminders of when she was all this and more.

One look that we will always remember from Hilton is her iconic micro miniskirts, often brightly colored and boldly-styled. Miu Miu recently reworked these skirts into their Spring 2024 collection – and today these iconic miniskirts can still be found. For an authentic ’00s touch add these cat eye shades – with premium injection frames boasting high-end gold deets this pair will take any outfit to new heights of glamour!

5. Naomi Campbell Blue Dress

Hilton is known to expertly combine metallics and feminine silhouettes. At the 2000 CFDA Fashion Awards, she chose an Alaia gown with an fitted design featuring a short train. For added flair she added several silver arm cuffs and dainty diamond bracelets as accessories to complete the look.

Though many may recall her as being part of the early 2000s (she owned several Juicy Couture velour tracksuits), the model continues to make an impressionful statement with every red carpet appearance. At the 2023 Killers of the Flower Moon premiere, she donned a Valentino cutout dress paired with a feather-embroidered cape; then in 2024 she tried something bolder by donning an asymmetrical Jean Paul Gaultier number that seamlessly evolved from dress into one-legged suit!

Hilton is currently featured in a reality series that follows her journey towards marriage, and this past month at Women in Entertainment she showed a more mature side. At an event hosted by Women in Entertainment she donned a long printed blue maxi dress paired with Air Jordan Retro High Silver Toe sneakers and finished the look off with thick side bangs and high ponytail. This series will premiere February 23 on OWN network.

6. Christian Cowan Crown Gown

Paris Hilton has long been recognized as a fashion icon, and her Christian Cowan crown gown only cemented that status in the early 2000s. She wore this sparkly fuchsia number to a 2022 Hilton holiday party and styled it with strappy heels and an ornate tennis bracelet encrusted with diamonds; making this romantic ensemble perfect for Valentine’s Day or any event calling for pink gowns.

Christian Cowan has proven his innovative designs can break new ground. He dressed celebrities such as Cardi B for her Invasion of Privacy album cover and Grammys performance outfits, among many other projects. Now, Christian’s latest creative feat – a colorful dress that doubles as a beanbag chair for subway commuters – allows them to rest their tired legs comfortably on its colourful gumdrop-shaped garment.

Hilton has transitioned away from her heiress persona and towards her charitable efforts in helping end abuse at youth residential treatment centers, yet still shines as a social media influencer and businesswoman. From iconic velour jumpsuits to minidresses – her style remains timeless! In her YouTube documentary series This Is Paris fans will get to witness a more vulnerable side of Hilton as they witness more intimate scenes in her life.

7. Rihanna Savage X Fenty Dress

Rihanna recently held her second Savage X Fenty fashion show in Los Angeles, featuring Bella Hadid and Joan Smalls as walk-on models, as well as plus-size models such as Paloma Elsesser and Slick Woods to showcase Dear Diary, Savage Not Sorry, Garden of Eden and Revelation collections from Dear Diary Dear Not Sorry Savage Not Sorry and Revelation collections respectively. Additionally, old favorites from Paris Hilton such as her pink tracksuit made a return appearance.

Paris Hilton has long been an avid supporter of Barbie pink hue, often wearing it as part of her signature look and featuring it for YouTube series Paris In Love. Her attire ranges from her holy slide slit signature look to doll-like box poses she used when filming Paris In Love series. As one of its biggest supporters, Paris Hilton truly lives up to her moniker as an expert savant when it comes to all things Barbie!

No matter if she’s attending a fashion show or flaunting her signature style in red lace dress, the Heiress always looks her best. Her influence on ’00s styles was undeniable, even if some of her peak Y2K looks are cringeworthy; there’s no denying she still has much to teach us about fashion; her penchant for pink and cheeky slogan tees prove it!
