Paris Hilton was everywhere you looked in the 2000s. As the era's newest reality star Hilton did everything she could to put her face out there: from starring on her own show on Fox to appearing in a series of commercials for Carl's Jr. and Hardy's. What seemed like oversaturation at the time now feels like the way things are done.

Looking back on Hilton's place in the 2000s, it was the perfect place for her. Not only was that decade all about trying new things and being as overblown as possible, but it was bright and exciting. Or as Hilton described the aughts, "Hot, sexy and huge."

She's no longer seen as a court jester, but rather someone who created a specific style.

To now see things on the runway, and to see girls wearing things that I used to wear is really cool because nobody really dressed like me back in the day... Young people now see what people wore before and want to bring it back.
