Paris Hilton Is In Russia

Well, those news reports were correct. According to, Paris Hilton is currently in Russia promoting someone else’s clothing line, but probably more for the money, I suppose.

I said in the past that promoting someone else’s clothing line is not a good idea because she has her own line. And I think businesses that are associated with Paris Hilton, the brand, don’t like this either.

Bob Van Ronkel, President of the ‘Doors to Hollywood’ company, now believes this is a brilland PR move for her young talented Kira Plastinina. Anyway, maybe it’s business and she’s the boss. Here’s a part of the article:

The hotel-chain heiress was applauded by the large crowd at the show as she smiled and pointed at the most interesting designs on the catwalk. At the end of the event she presented 15-year-old Kira Plastinina with a huge bouquet of flowers.

Paris Hilton is due to talk to the media on Tuesday, where she’s expected to explain why promoting Kira Plastinina’s collection.

According to reports, she’s getting about $US 2 million for her two or three days’ work in the Russian capital.

Surprisingly perhaps, she is not staying at the Hilton in Moscow. She’s booked in at the Hyatt, considered to be the finest hotel in the Russian capital.

I believe that would be Hiltonova in Russian.
Paris looks exceptionally beautiful in this photo.

The Hilton Hotels deal was approved by the European Comission last Friday, this finalized the $26 Billion buyout.

normally i would agree with you about not promoting another designer when you have your own line. however, in this case, i haven’t seen Kira’s line so I’m not sure if it is the same type of apparel as Paris’ line, which so far is mainly casusal. So I’m not sure if they are competing in the same market/fashion niche or not. If not, then i don’t see the problem.

oh, and I agree, paris is positively stunning in this photo. I have always felt that if she had concentrated more on her modeling, that hse would be a upermodel today and right up there in earnings with Heidi, naomi, Gisele, etc. today.
