Recall that the SKIMS founder was the first to recreate Monroe’s iconic style. She wore the look to the Met Gala last year, and it got people talking!
However, the reality star has been usurped by her pal Hilton who channeled Monroe for her Vogue Arabia shoot, and fans think she recreated the icon better than Kardashian did.
Paris Hilton Channels Marilyn Monroe In New Photoshoot
The hotel heiress perfectly resembled the iconic actress in the photos she shared on her Instagram page. The “Simple Life” star rocked a fluffy white robe for the shoot, and her blonde hair was styled in Monroe’s signature bob. Hilton accessorized the look with a matching statement necklace and earrings.
Hilton captioned the post, “Channeling my forever icon.” In no time, the post received several likes and thousands of comments, with people noting the similarities between Hilton and Monroe.
One individual commented, “You have Marilyn beauty with Princess Diana soul ❤️ we love you.” Another admirer wrote, “and didn’t have to spoil anything, learn Kim Kardashian,” seemingly commending Hilton for not tampering with late Monroe’s belongings as Kim had done.
A fan added, “You’re giving Marilyn Monroe meets princess Diana vibes.” More followers of the billionaire heiress branded her as the new Monroe. An individual expressed, “You’re our modern-day Marilyn Monroe but hotter.” Echoing the same view, an admirer remarked, “Stunning @parishilton, And you are the Marilyn Monroe of our generation.”
Additionally, an individual said that “Marilyn Monroe reincarnated as Paris.” A follower praised the socialite, writing, “No one can do it like the OG! Modern day Marilyn always coming back stronger and better each year.”
As mentioned, Kim Kardashian recreated Monroe’s look for the Met Gala last year. Per The Blast, the KKW Beauty owner wore Monroe’s “Happy Birthday Mr. President Dress” in line with the 2022 Met Gala theme: “In America: An Anthology on Fashion.”
According to the “Keeping Up With The Kardashians” star, she got the idea in 2021, and she thought that the American icon was the best interpretation of the theme.
The iconic dress featured over six thousand crystal embellishments and was auctioned for $4.8 million at Julien’s Auctions in 2016. However, Kardashian faced a setback as the original dress didn’t fit her body. Recounting her displeasure about the news, Kardashian said, “So when it didn’t fit me, I wanted to cry because it can’t be altered at all.”
Hence, the reality star was left with two options, either to shed weight or not to wear the dress. Choosing to lose weight instead, the socialite incorporated a strict workout routine. Narrating her experience, Kardashian said, “It was this or nothing. I would wear a sauna suit twice a day, run on the treadmill, completely cut out all sugar and all carbs, and just eat the cleanest veggies and protein.”
The SKIMS Founder Played A Role In Paris Hilton’s Journey To Becoming A Mom
While the two BFFs have their unique way of channeling Monroe, their friendship bond is stronger than ever, as Kim helped Hilton on her IVF journey.
As earlier reported, Hilton announced on January 25 that welcomed a baby. Hilton announced her baby’s arrival with a sweet post. At that time, she wrote, “You are already loved beyond words,” the model gushed, adding a blue heart emoji signifying that the baby is a boy.
In no time, fans and other celebrities congratulated the “Paris in Love” star, and Kim was leading the list. Kardashian wrote, “so happy for you guys!!!”
Following the big news, it was discovered that the “KUWTK” alum played a fundamental role in Hilton’s motherhood journey. Hilton credited the KKW Beauty founder for helping her through the IVF process by referring her fertility specialist, Dr. Andy Huang.
“I didn’t even know anything about it,” the New Yorker confessed in a podcast interview. “I’m happy that she told me that advice and introduced me to her doctor.”
Fans know that the two socialites have an on-and-off relationship. Their friendship goes back to when they were preschoolers and blossomed into adulthood. Unfortunately, Kim’s fame contributed to the downward turn of their friendship.
After years of strained communication between the former BFFs, they rekindled their love in 2016 at Kris Jenner’s Christmas Eve party. Since then, the pair have remained on amicable terms.
