Paris Hilton is a total Barbie in glitter-clad mini dress

The heiress was joined by stars including Ashley Park and James Charles for the Klarna & Paris Hilton House of Y2K launch party


We may have Margot Robbie to thank for the invention of Barbiecore, but in all seriousness, Paris Hilton was the OG Barbie since day dot. The heiress hosted the Klarna & Paris Hilton House of Y2K launch party in Los Angeles on Thursday evening and was joined by a VIP guestlist for the occasion.

The 42-year-old dazzled in a custom Nicole & Felecia mini dress inspired by the iconic Julien Macdonald chainmail dress she wore on her 21st birthday, which was also one of the decade-defining looks displayed at the pop-up. The disco-ready garment featured an ultra mini silhouette, a structured cowl neck, an on-trend neck strap and a body-cinching fit.

Perfecting her Barbie babe aesthetic, the new mother wore her blonde hair down in a slick straightened style, allowing her sharp fringe to frame her face. She accessorised with a glitter-clad clutch bag, some coordinating fingerless gloves and Y2K sunglasses, in-keeping with the theme of the night. A super beautified makeup look enhanced her plastic-fantastic-themed attire.

Attendees even got Y2K-inspired makeup by MUA Nick Metos inspired by Paris' beauty blend and their personal items blinged out with Bling’d Up.
