When was the last time any of us thought of Paris Hilton? Despite her apparent irrelevance, she has landed herself the cover of Vanity Fair Spain. Photographed by Greg Lotus, the cover shot is awash in gold and Paris looks so digitally altered that it’s possible the Barbies that are stowed away in my parents’ attic look more life-like than she does. Opinions in the forums were divided, so it seems Paris still has some fans lurking about.
“Looks like a wax figure.” Salvatore commented. “With less airbrushing, it could have been nicer.”
The airbrushing worked for Urban Stylin. “Love it! I think the whole plastic thing was intentional,” he shared. “They styled and Photoshopped her to look like a Barbie.”
YourMonster who is clearly a Paris Hilton fan, thought the image was spot on. “I love the cover. I love how the image is just unashamed of its decadence and Paris Hilton is always photogenic in my opinion. I'll definitely pick this up,” he wrote.
Mikel thought the whole thing was “tacky beyond belief, but I like her ironic facial expression,” he admitted. “Wonder if that was intentional or not,” he quipped.
This magazine cover just came out of left field for me. I’ve never been a fan of Paris Hilton, and it suddenly feels like we’re back in 2005. No thanks.
