If you ever had doubts that Paris Hilton was the Queen of the 2000s, you needn’t look any further for proof.
Arguably, Paris Hilton, Britney Spears, and Lindsay Lohan pretty much sum up the celebrities of the Bush-era. It might just be because we feel super nostalgic for the ’90s and the ’00s, but catchphrases like “that’s hot” and episodes of The Simple Life still seem monumental to us now. Hey, even today’s celebs like Kendall Jenner are taking fashion cues from Pairs, and tbh we absolutely love it. Seriously, we’d be quite happy to spend our days rocking out to “Stars Are Blind,” texting on our Sidekick, and watching The Hills.
Given that we’re in somewhat of a ’90s and ’00s revival, Paris has decided to share some of her most memorable looks from the 2000s, and it’s sending us into a time warp.
In a video shared by W Magazine, Paris appears at the top of a magnificent staircase to let us know why “the early 2000s were the most significant years in fashion history.”
Running through a list of her 13 favorite ’00s trends, Paris revisits things like tracksuits (we wanted a Juicy tracksuit SO bad, and they’re actually back, too!), graphic Tees, mini-skirts (“Skirts should be the size of a belt,” she says), UGG boots, carrying multiple cell phones, and, of course, trucker hats.
In an accompanying interview, the magazine suggests that, essentially, Paris Hilton invented the selfie as we know it today.
“If a beeper had a camera, I would have taken a selfie with it,” she agrees. “I think I have a selfie from when I was a little kid, like on a disposable camera.”
Of course, who could forget this iconic Paris Hilton moment from the first season of The O.C.
What an innovator.
While we’re kinda glad that technology has evolved since the ’00s (although we still want a hot pink Motorola Razr), we agree with Paris. Your many cell phones *should* be bedazzled. Because that’s just so hot.
