There’s no doubt about it – Paris Hilton is the ultimate 2000s icon. There are few celebrities whose every movement (and every outfit) has been meticulously captured by paparazzi and the likes of Getty Images. Her low-rise jeans, velour tracksuits, (ultra) mini-skirts, graphic tees, daring sunglasses, and all-pink ensembles are the epitome of Y2K fashion.

As the Y2K trend has started to make a comeback in recent years, Paris’s iconic style continues to inspire new generations, solidifying her status as a timeless fashion icon.

But Paris isn’t staying on the sidelines. She’s also embracing the Y2K comeback and rocking styles that nod to her iconic past (while adding modern twists!).

However, there’s one accessory she keeps coming back to – a pair of Giant Vintage sunglasses! By now, it’s safe to say Paris Hilton practically lives in her Giant Vintage sunnies, and we couldn’t be happier about it. Check out all the details below.

All the Times Paris Hilton Rocked Giant Vintage Sunglasses

Though there are hundreds of fabulous sunglasses in Giant Vintage’s Y2K collection, Paris Hilton’s undeniable favorite is the ZIPPER style. She even had one pair bedazzled for a little extra glam and sparkle. Besides ZIPPER, another oversized shield style takes part in Paris’s famed outfits – BOOM.

Let’s revisit all the times Paris Hilton rocked these fabulous sunglasses (for now!).

Halloween (October 2023)

What happens when one 2000s icon pays homage to another 2000s icon? Magic, that’s what! That’s precisely what happened when Paris Hilton wore the legendary flight attendant ensemble from Britney Spears’s “Toxic” music video for Halloween.

However, Paris added an element that tied the entire look together – a pair of ZIPPER glasses.

Talk Shop Live (October 2023)

Paris’s beloved ZIPPER sunglasses made another appearance when filming a Talk Shop Live show with TikTok star Jack Wright. But this time, she wasn’t the one wearing them. In a “Freaky Friday” type of situation, Jack was rocking both the sunglasses and one of Paris’s iconic silver mini-dresses.

Call Her Daddy (December 2023)

We know we keep throwing the word “iconic” around, but there’s arguably no better word to describe all things Paris Hilton-related. The same goes for the unbelievably popular “Call Her Daddy” podcast hosted by Alexandra Cooper.

When these two icons met for Paris’s episode, which she described as “her Christmas wish,” she welcomed Alex wearing matching ZIPPER sunglasses.

Poppi-Mart Launch Party (January 2024)

To launch its newest flavor, Wild Berry, the soda brand Poppi opened a temporary convenience store called the Poppi-mart. Thanks to her partnership with the brand, Paris Hilton got to DJ this launch and wear one of her most stunning ensembles ever.

A reflective mini-dress covered in tear-shaped scales, glittering sequin-covered boots, and a gleaming crystal-decorated tiara made her look like nothing short of space royalty. Of course, this memorable outfit wouldn’t be complete without Paris’s trusty bedazzled ZIPPER sunglasses.

She also used the opportunity to snap a photo for an Instagram ad for the brand.

Her Son’s First Birthday (January 2024)

To celebrate her son Phoenix’s first birthday, Paris Hilton threw an elaborate party in her Beverly Hills home. Though she sported a princess-like getup—a ball gown and a tiara—Paris couldn’t resist including her BOOM sunnies in some of the adorable photos.

All the Times Paris Hilton Was Otherwise Iconic

OK, the word “all” is an exaggeration. But here are some of our favorite Paris Hilton fashion moments that didn’t feature Giant Vintage glasses (unfortunately!).

Her 21st Birthday Dress

You probably already knew which fashion moment would top this list. Of course, it's Paris Hilton's more than iconic 21st birthday in London and that dress. The chainmail dress Paris wore that night would be later recreated by numerous celebrities, including Kim Kardashian and Kendall Jenner (on her 21st birthday).

The Infamous Graphic Tee

When her sister, Nicky Hilton, launched her clothing line in Las Vegas, Paris was pictured wearing a graphic tee that now lives in infamy. Why? Well, the graphic tee initially said “Stop Being Desperate,” but a Photoshop job turned it into “Stop Being Poor.” And just like that, one of the best-known memes was born!

Basically, Every “Simple Life” Episode Ever

It's challenging to single out just one fashion moment from this iconic series. However, the scene filmed in New York City where Paris and her Chihuahua wore almost matching fur coats might just take the cake.

The All-Denim Ensemble With Nicole Richie in West Hollywood

For better or for worse, almost everyone knows about Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake's all-denim outfits at the 2001 American Music Awards in January 2001. But did you know Paris has also rocked an all-denim ensemble with her “Simple Life” co-star, Nicole Richie?

Yup, this happened in November of the same year in West Hollywood. However, Paris and Nicole's fits could be described as “cool” and “sultry” rather than “ridiculous,” which was often thrown around when discussing the former all-denim fit.
