Welcome to Life Lessons. This week, in celebration of her new show Paris in Love (now streaming on Peacock) and her overall commitment to sliving—that’s slaying and living—we honor the glory of Paris Hilton by revisiting a few highlights from her February2006 Interview cover story, where she explains the importance of being hot. So sit back and grab a pen—you just might learn a thing or two.

“I pick cute outfits for whatever mood I’m in, and you should dress for a party the same way. If it’s a theme party, dress like the theme. For example, I was at a party for the new Xbox and I wore this outfit that looked like something a video game character would wear.”

“Whatever you end up wearing, always remember to bring your cell phone, some lip gloss, and some gum. If you have a problem that can’t be solved with lip gloss and gum, you’re probably going to have to make a phone call.”

“When I go out, I like to rent a Hummer limo. Hummer limos are like having your own nightclub. They have lights and a fireplace, and they may be really cheesy, but they’re a lot of fun. It’s like having your own private VIP room.

“My whole way of making entrances is very tongue-in-cheek. One time, I arrived at a party in a helicopter. I kind of felt bad because the wind from the propellers blew champagne glasses out of people’s hands and everyone’s hair was ruined. But I thought it was cool.”

_____

“Whenever someone is taking your picture,  you should always have some attitude. Mostly, with the whole pose thing, I’m just saying, ‘Yeah, I’m good at this, but I don’t really think about it. It just happens. But it’s not, like, my thing.’”

_____

“Do I wait in line? No. I’ve never, ever, waited in line my entire life. But I think a good way to keep from standing in line is to go right up to the door and push the bouncer over a little bit and say, ‘Excuse me!’ and walk right in. Then they totally think you’re in already.”

“I’m a total social butterfly Aquarius, but there are a lot of club rats, table-lurkers, and party crashers who I always avoid. They’re usually older guys who try to talk to you, or women who look like they’ve had a lot of plastic surgery. They are to be avoided at all costs.”

“If someone is coming on a little too strong, my friends and I have code words and phrases that we use when we need help. If I say to them, ‘Tiffany is crying!’ then they know to jump in. That’s one we use a lot. Then we run away.”

_____

“Don’t show off, and definitely don’t drink too much. Fighting in public is never good. And if you just met somebody at a party, it’s really cheesy to start making out with them in front of everybody. Just be cute and dance and be nice to everyone and have fun.”

_____

“It’s good to leave a party while it’s still going strong, which is why I try to leave before everyone else. I like to sneak out the back because I hate saying good-bye to everybody. Otherwise, it usually takes me about an hour to get out of there.”

_____

“There’s a mystery about me because how I am in public is completely different from how I am in private. What everyone sees is really just me putting on this fun character. The best thing to do is always smile. Then nobody knows what you’re thinking, and that’s hot.”
