PARIS HILTON RACING TEAM
Competing in the MotoGP class for 125cc two-strokes, the team has won races in France, with 16-year-old phenom Maverick Vinales winning at Le Mans. The racing press has discarded its snark and acknowledged that her team — which includes talented vets — is good.
Paris is famous for her long blonde locks, and for going from long waves to a short bob overnight. She launched hair extensions in 2008 and a line of hair styling tools in November 2009.
Sold at about 1,500 locations in 15 different countries, the line is projected to sell more than 8 million units over the next 10 years, according to Hilton.
