We apologize for indulging in a little Paris Hilton bashing after vowing many years ago to let her slip quietly into total oblivion.
In fact, we must admit that Ms Hilton hasn't piqued our curiosity even remotely ... until we happened upon some gala photos captured last night in New York City.
Is it our imagination or has the Hilton heir gone a bit overboard with her signature pose? If we didn't know better we'd suggest she see a specialist for the permanent curvature of her spine. We kid...
Paris attended the high-profile event benefiting the European School of Economics scholarship program with her handsome boyfriend, Finnish-Spanish male model River Viiperi.
The guest list included Rick Hilton and his socialite wife Kathy and their daughter Nicki Hilton. Donald Trump was in the company of his trophy wife Melania Knauss-Trump and his stunningly gorgeous daughter Ivanka Trump.
