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. Now it seems Paris Hilton, who hired Kardashian as her personal assistant back in the day, is trying to outdo her former minion. For her Paper Winter 2015 shoot, the hotel heiress is seen in one image, naked except for a backless contraption tied on. In another pic, Paris gets all Gothic, with black lipstick and nails, a sharp contrast to her usual girly, feminine vibe. To celebrate the so-called Fandemonium 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 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, but was on his best behavior, spies say.
