Paris: Serious mogul
Synonymous for years with trashy reality TV, Paris Hilton has remade herself in the image of her Hilton forebears as a bona fide mogul.
"I have really grown past that," Hilton, 35, tells Harper's Bazaar of her old life. "Now, I mostly focus on . . . my brand rather than everything else that comes with the reality star kind of life."
Hilton has an impressive portfolio "that includes 35 eponymous boutiques, three hotels and 20 fragrances in addition to her manufacturing empire, which produces everything from accessories and handbags to cosmetics and children's wear," says USA Today.
Hilton does take some pride in the old days. "No one had ever been paid to go to a party," Hilton says. "I was the first one to kind of invent that in Las Vegas at 20 years old."
