For her latest “V” magazine pictorial, Paris Hilton has ditched her pampered Barbie-girl persona for something darkier, edgier—and well, more suitable for an S&M dungeon!
Paris shatters the prissy perception of herself for the photo shoot by donning various bondage-inspired black leather get-ups, and by opting for dramatic blunt bangs and smoky eyes. And did we mention she’s topless?
Although she’s more domanatrix than darling in the photos, Paris tells the magazine she’s a fan of Hollywood’s classic leading ladies of yesteryear. “I have always admired Marilyn Monroe, because the camera loved her,” she says. Audrey Hepburn, for being so classic, and Kate Moss. I have always looked up to Martha Stewart and Oprah Winfrey.”
And while Paris—who currently stars in her own Oxygen reality TV show, “The World According To Paris”— may not appear too footloose-and-fancy-free in these images, she says she’s very happy-go-lucky. “I’m very fun, and I’m very daring. I don’t copy anybody,” she said. “I’m like my own Barbie doll!”
