Early-2000s Style Is Back! What Paris Hilton, Lil’ Kim, and Beyoncé Can Teach Us Now

A few weeks before the New Year, I’m scrolling through my Instagram feed when I land on an image of Lil’ Kim dressed in little else than a fringed bikini top and bottom, a Western gun belt fastened around her pint-sized waistline. The MC’s flaxen, waist-length tresses have been braided into two ponytails and she’s daintily flexing her cutout ankle boot toe daintily. I immediately message a colleague in the comments below: “Stepping into the new year like . . .” Within minutes he’s messaged me back.

It’s been a daily exchange since he advised me to follow the New York City stylist, curator, and vintage dealer Gabriel Held, who has culled a visually arresting compendium of throwback images that celebrate the braggadocios, ostentatious, and—dare I say—so-bad-it’s-good fashions of the early 2000s. Thousands of millennials flock to his page to reminisce and wince over the low-slung boot-cut jeans of Mariah Carey, Paris Hilton’s ruched minidresses, and Beyoncé’s customized stage outfits. Is their appeal now about camp, a sense of nostalgia, or a challenge to the normcore minimalist stylings of late? When I talk to Held, he suggests it may just be all three, a reminder that maybe we shouldn’t be so eager to throw out our ruches and ruffles after all. Here, Held talks about the fashion faux positives that defined the times and the early-aughts stars we can learn the most from now.

Bad Taste as Good Taste
What has spurned this return of bad taste as good taste? Some of it may be nostalgia. At the turn of the millennium, I’m sure people felt like the future is now, and we might be nostalgic for that. But what do I personally find inspiring about the early aughts? It’s when I really came into my own style. I was fascinated by labels at that point because I was a less-fortunate student at an affluent New York private school. But what I was able to do was thrift things on my meager weekly allowance that I would then sell back to the girls at school for a profit.

There’s also something about the highly manufactured imagery of the early ’00s—think David LaChapelle—that I think is almost more upfront and paradoxically a little bit more honest than some of the artists we have today. People were so conspicuous! Everybody was like, “Look at me! That’s right, I said look at me!” As opposed to today when people are like, “Maybe look at me in my beige coat . . . but don’t . . . but do, please.”

I consider myself to have invented a primitive version of Instagram. I had an empty vintage backgammon case with my favorite clippings from magazines and from catalogs—definitely Delia’s catalogs, but also Vogue. I carried that around all year, and I’ve been collecting images and making images for a long time. The Internet is a wealth of information in general, and on the basis of my “work” on Instagram, I am doing photo research gigs. I have a line coming out in collaboration with Print All Over Me in August, and I can tell you a couple of things are definitely informed by this era: the classic J.Lo jumpsuit silhouette, monograms, quilting, and a slew of other things. It’s a small capsule and will contain five looks available in five different textiles of my design, but here’s the kicker: You can upload any image to Print All Over Me and they can print you a fabric and ultimately make it a garment. Keep an eye out for that!

When Camp Becomes Collectible
Logomania never really went anywhere, and I could see low-slung denim and boot-cut denim even coming back in, but what I think really we’re going to see is stuff like ruffles and ruching like in a Tom-Ford-for-Yves-Saint-Laurent way, but also in a Roberto-Cavalli-ruffly-tiered-miniskirt way. Basically any style Beacon’s Closet deems “too difficult” to sell is what we should be looking for. I am really coveting all of John Galliano’s Dior—I feel like it will become as collectible as Tom Ford Gucci is at this point. Also, some lines that have taken a somewhat different direction, any of the pieces from their original glory days are appealing to me, in part because they’re in limited quantity now.

Fashion Faux Positives and the Movement That Truly Defined the Era
I think the “ghetto fabulous” movement was the most significant. There’s something poetic about it: the appropriation from high fashion to the streets, and then back into high fashion, all prevalent at that time. Designers started really paying attention to and being inspired by some of the hip-hop and R&B artists who were featuring their looks.

Two specific moments that symbolize this are Manolo Blahnik’s Timberlands and the fact that, other than her Manolo’s, Sex and the City’s Carrie Bradshaw is most associated with her name-plate necklace. It’s the mixing of references, from high and low and really everywhere, that comes full circle here. My friend and sometimes collaborator Misa Hylton masterminded many of Lil’ Kim, Mary J. Blige, and Missy Elliott’s iconic looks—most notably, Lil’ Kim’s exposed breast at the 1999 MTV Video Music Awards. That’s what I referred to as a “fashion faux positive.” Whether people loved or hated that look, we’re still discussing it 15 years later, and the value of that kind of cultural contribution is something I can’t underestimate. It also gave us the moment of Diana Ross bopping her on the boob!

8 Early-Aughts Style Stars We Can Learn From Now
One thing about Misa Hylton’s work that really speaks to me is that she’s never afraid to try something differently from the way it was intended. Why not wear that necklace as a tiara? Why not cut up a fur and make it a bikini? That’s one thing that we could learn from the styles of the early 2000s: not to be afraid to appropriate things away from their original context or purpose.

Paris Hilton: I’m more a fan of Paris’s former aesthetic, but from her we can take some cues on accentuating your best features. She has that gorgeous giraffe neck and wasn’t afraid to wear a superwide Dolce Swarovski choker.

Lil’ Kim: Kim has been an endless source of inspiration to me. The best lesson from her is to be fearless and to really commit to your look.

Beyoncé: For the record, I put my money on Beyoncé from “No, No, No” onwards. The Tina Knowles technique was very influential to me, because at the time I was choreographing hip-hop numbers and I would always put the girls in some variation of a customized wifebeater and pair of customized jeans.

Mariah Carey: Mariah and her stylist Tonjua Twist’s work? There’s something so low fashion about it that it is kind of rebellious, which was really Mariah’s vibe at the time. If she wanted to wear an oversize T-shirt on MTV’s TRL or take a bath fully clothed on Cribs, she sure did it.

Mary J. Blige: I really feel that her essence is that she’s earned the right to do whatever she wants. Be fearless, don’t be afraid of labels, don’t be afraid of colors. I really loved that kind of 1960s direction that Misa Hylton took her in with the hooded chiffon outfits and cat eyeglasses around 1995.

Nicole Richie: Nicole Richie was also giving a real Eric Cartman “I do what I want” vibe. And honestly, to me that’s what everybody should do. I don’t really follow trends and I certainly don’t like being told what to buy, what to sell, and what to store. I’ll be the judge of that.

Britney Spears: From Britney we learn that it’s okay to have a signature body part. If you love your midriff, go ahead and show it off.

Naomi Campbell: What can we learn from Naomi Campbell? Be flawless. Next!

Herself As A Serious Entrepreneur -- And Crushes It

The first thing you need to know about Paris Hilton is that you don’t really know Paris Hilton.

Hers may not be the first name that comes to mind when you think ‘entrepreneur,’ but there are now more than 45 Paris Hilton stores in more than 40 countries, Variety named her its ‘Billion Dollar Entrepreneur’ in 2011 and her fragrance collection is fast approaching a $2 billion industry — so it’s more than time to take her seriously in the category. And, yes, it’s a lot easier to make money when you start with money, but, as she pointed out when we sat down in her Beverly Hills home, she didn’t have to work at all. She has dozens of peers who, as the scions of other great industrialists, have made a career out of simply spending their family’s hard-earned wealth instead of creating some of it for themselves.

“My grandfather and great grandfather created such a huge empire” says Hilton “As a little girl I really looked up to them and wanted to do something of my own. I could never have become a trust-fund kid and lived off a monthly allowance. As a teenager, I always said I wanted to make my own money so I never had to ask for anything.”

For many, particularly those under 30, her personal brand has largely eclipsed that of her successful forebears. As she says with a wry smile: “My grandfather jokes that he used to be known as Barron Hilton. Now people just refer to him as Paris Hilton’s grandfather.” But, while she may have joined Adele and Oprah in the first-name celebrity club, it’s her last name that will tell you the most about her. Paris Hilton is asHilton to the core, and a defining feature of the Hiltons is hard graft. “My grandfather had my father work as a bell boy in the hotels when he was younger.” notes Hilton, “My dad worked for everything he got; he worked his way up from the bottom to own the largest real estate business in Beverley Hills. Hard work and entrepreneurial drive is in the Hilton blood. We’re determined to do big things.”

And it’s not just the need for personal success that drives Hilton. As she says: “Even if I’m tired after a month of travel, I‘m going to get up and go because it’s not just about me. There are other people whose jobs depend on my getting to work. I think about the team in our Beverly Hills office, I think about the people we employ around the world. I love that I get to create employment opportunities for people all over the globe – that really motivates me.”

Far from laziness, if anything, Hilton suffers from the familiar entrepreneurial characteristic/trait of keeping a intensely packed schedule and persistently working a bit too hard.” In addition to working with her team at their Beverly Hills offices and visiting her worldwide stores, Hilton signed with record label Young Money Cash MoneyRecords last year, released a hit single with Lil Wayne, opened a Paris Hilton branded beach club in the Philippines earlier this year, worked on new projects for her 17 product lines, and plans to return to Ibiza this summer for her second year as a Resident DJ at mega-club Amnesia.

Breadth, as it turns out, also happens to be a Hilton trait. Great grandpa, Conrad Hilton worked in a general store, served in the army, spent two years in the New Mexico State Legislature and considered banking before he bought his first hotel. Paris’ grandfather, William Barron Hilton also served in the military, became a citrus product distributor, co-founded an oil company and founded one of the nation’s first aircraft leasing businesses before joining the family firm in the mid-1950s.

Precocity also runs in the family. Barron Hilton was flying aircraft at 17 and by 19 had earned his license to fly twin-engine jets. This probably explains why Paris disobeyed her parents at 15 to become a model. “I was 15 and in New York City. Donald Trump was opening his model agency and he asked me to be his first model. My parents said absolutely not, you’re just a teenager and you’re going to school, you’re not modeling! I called Donald and told him ‘don’t tell my folks but I am signing with your agency’ and I began runway lessons straight away.” A year later, at 16, Hilton reached out to perfume creators to design her own fragrance and took it to fragrance manufactures to get it launched.

Her work as a model – and her life as a well-known socialite – is what led TV producers at Fox to approach her to star in reality TV show, The Simple Life. It was in this crucible that the current brand of Paris Hilton was formed. As Hilton puts it, somewhat wistfully: “My character, the character that most people associate me with, was really a fiction created for the Simple Life. I had never seen a reality show before that point and, to be honest, I really did not know what I was getting myself into. The producers said: ‘Paris, you be the ditzy blonde, rich airhead, and, Nicole, you be the troublemaker who is always swearing and creating mischief.’ Honestly we didn’t anticipate the show’s success, how big it would get and that we’d have to do it for another five years! I had to continue playing this character and, naturally, people assumed that that is who I really was.”

Hilton may not have entirely created or been in control of her brand at the time but, once created, she has been savvy enough to see its potential and leverage it to the utmost. Hilton’s stores and her collections of handbags, watches, sunglasses, fragrances and clothing present what Hilton defines as ‘fun, affordable luxury.” Hilton has translated both her fame and, in part, the bubbly brand that The Simple Life caricatured, into the Paris Hilton line of products. Speaking about the product line, Hilton shows just how aware she is of the crossover between her personal brand and her merchandise: “My products speak to the fun side of my brand. It’s girly. It’s playful. It’s absolutely part of capturing that fantasy Barbie-world existence.”

Far from just lending her image to products, Hilton keeps close tabs on what she wants her brand to be and how she wants bring it to life. Consequently, as she puts it: “I say no a lot more than I say yes. I am offered things every single day that I have to turn down.” What is the least brand-appropriate product offer she has received? “I was in Mexico a while ago and they pitched me on Paris Hilton branded beans” Hilton recalls, laughing: “They actually brought a can of beans, with my face on it and holding a can of beans. I don’t know how they made it but it was this legitimate pink can of beans. They genuinely thought I would love it and naturally I just I thought I was being punk’d.”

But of course tangible brands built around personal brands can’t live on in the same format forever and here again Hilton shows she is no-one’s fool. Far from the permanent adolescent stereotype of the tabloid press, Hilton comes across as a woman fully in control of herself and her image and already planning the next development of her personal brand and how this will translate in to products. “I know I’m not going to DJ in Ibiza for the rest of my life and I expect my brand to mature with me. When I have children in the next couple of years, I would like to develop a line of children’s clothing and children’s books. So expanding and developing the brand along with the fan base. On the jewelry and fragrance side, I’d look at the example of someone like Elizabeth Taylor who was able to market elegance as she grew older.”

“By that point though” she adds with a laugh “I will probably be a grandmother and have 100 fragrances!”

American Humane Association event honors Paris Hilton

Humane Association honored Paris Hilton at its annual Humanitarian Luncheon.

The last of the season’s Be Humane events took place March 25 and honored the designer, reality show star and animal rights advocate for her charity work.

Lois Pope was chairwoman for the afternoon, which included a reception and silent auction, luncheon, the recognition of the honoree and entertainment by Clint Holmes with Jeffrey Neiman.

Hilton received the National Humanitarian Medal, the American Humane Association’s highest honor, for her support of charitable causes such as the Starlight Children’s Foundation, the LA Children’s Hospital, MusiCares, The Barbara Davis Center for Childhood Diabetes, Education Africa, Feeding America, Precious Paws, Soles4Souls and the Union Rescue Mission.

“Paris Hilton has given selflessly of her talent and her time to so many good causes, ranging from animal rescue to pediatric cancer,” said Dr. Robin Ganzert, president and CEO of American Humane Association. “As an organization that works to help children and animals in their times of greatest need, we appreciate her efforts to gain global support for the major issues so that together we may make a difference.”

More than 350 people attended.

Proceeds from the event support the Palm Beach County-based Lois Pope Red Star Rescue team. The team’s new emergency response vehicle was onsite at the Mar-a-Lago Club and available for viewing. The 50-foot truck, which carries a contingent of trained Red Star volunteers and enough equipment to shelter 100 animals, already has deployed to assist in major disasters, including the Oklahoma tornadoes.

Paris Hilton Does It All

You have to hand it to Paris Hilton, she seems to be everywhere these days and for different reasons than her initial rise to super stardom. Today, Paris is billed as an entrepreneur, a film star and a recording artist. She’s also hit British TV screens in a pretty big way over recent months courtesy of a TV advertisement for bgo – one of the country’s biggest online casino, bingo and gaming brands.


Paris stars opposite diminutive star of TV and movies, Verne Troyer, who is probably best known for his work as “Mini Me” in Mike Myers’ Austin Powers films.

Information about both Paris Hilton and Verne Troyer features on the bgo blogpost area of the bgo site – and is well worth a read for those with an interest.

The ads are genuinely entertaining. They’re tongue in cheek, of course, and see Verne as the boss who is unhappy at all the trendy innovations and general level of glitziness introduced by Paris. He’s concerned that Paris might soon be the bgo boss instead of him. This is a general theme reflected in all the ads that are getting a lot of airplay just at the moment as the brand is clearly aiming to become the major player in the UK market along with competitors such as Titanbet, William Hill, Ladbrokes and several other online gaming brands.

In the latest ad, the boss sees Paris offering free spins to all the players then wakes to find it was all a bad dream and that he’s actually in an interview with Paris, who is applying for the assistant’s position. Needless to say, he turns her down.

And whilst the bgo ads are all about cheeky humour, they do come pretty near to the real mark of the reinvented Paris Hilton of today. In recent years, the now 34-year-old Hilton has appeared in the Danish version of TV series Paradise Hotel and in two episodes of the TV show The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.

Her business interests are also said to be progressing well. Paris now has 45 of her own stores – in which the products sold include bags, fragrances, sunglasses and shoes inspired or created in conjunction with the actress. She’s also appeared in music videos including Birdman’s “Tapout”.

And as if all this activity isn’t enough, she also announced a deal with Cash Money Records in May 2013 to release a second album including collaborations with Snoop Dogg, RedOne, and Flo Rida.

Paris has released many songs over the years which have met with mixed reviews and box office success. But there’s absolutely no denying her talent and vocal range as exemplified by her “Come Alive” song.

So tell us, please, just how does the omnipresent Ms. Hilton find the time to do all this stuff? Perhaps there’s a secret twin sister!?
