Last November, before she was complaining about her pregnancy weight, Kim Kardashian was in fine form on the cover of Paper magazine. The pictures of the reality star’s greased-up, ample backside are etched in many a memory bank (thanks, dear). Now Paris Hilton, who hired Kardashian as her personal assistant back in the day, is trying to one-up her former minion. For her Internet-breaking Paper Winter 2015 shoot, the hotel heiress is seen naked in one image except for a backless, bondage-inspired contraption literally tied on. In another pic, the sometime DJ gets Gothic with black lipstick and nails, a sharp contrast to her usual girly, feminine vibe. To celebrate the so-called Pandemonium issue, Hilton was feted at The Miami Beach Edition Hotel Tuesday night, along with a small squad of friends and so-called tastemakers. The tequila-fueled dinner at Matador Room included such guests as Atlanta de Cadenet Taylor, the ex of Duran Duran bassist John Taylor; Canadian photographer Petra Collins; and Paper’s editorial director Mickey Boardman. Along too: Paris’ troubled little brother Barron Hilton, who was arrested in February for going ballistic on an international flight. At Matador, Jr. was apparently on his best behavior. Phew.
Hilary Swank has a new(ish) boyfriend. He’s Colombian tennis coach/financial whiz Ruben Torres. The Oscar winner (Million Dollar Baby) was seen making the rounds with the debonair fellow with whom she was first spotted over the summer. On Tuesday night, Swank and her novio were all smiles on the red carpet at a DuJour Magazine Art Basel kickoff party at the Delano. Other guests: celebrity photographer Bruce Weber, fellow Oscar winner/pop artist Adrien Brody and Entourage star Adrian Grenier.
