Paris Hilton launches her own beauty line, which includes an imitation of the InStyler!


On Tuesday night, Paris Hilton turned the rooftop of the Thompson Hotel in Beverly Hills pink for the launch of her new line of beauty products. She looked like a life size Barbie doll in a hot pink Alice + Olivia strapless, flipped out blond locks and a Ken doll named Doug Reinhardt by her side.

Unlike most Hollywood events, this guest list was kept to Paris’ friends and family. The only other celebrities in attendance were Hilton family members. Nicky Hilton looked just as pretty as her sis, but in a more edgier style with a structured shoulder blazer worn over a black and white stripe dress and towering patent pumps. But her nails fit right in with the pink theme of the night.

Mom Kathy sported hot red peep-toes and a frizz-free ‘do thanks to her daughter new hair styling tool. Click the gallery below to see who else was at the event–and to get a look inside the gift bags lucky guests got to take home, which included the the new Celebrity Styler and Ultimate Brush, as well as Paris’ Dream Catcher Funky Color ClipIn-Go extensions and a signed photo of the hostess, herself.

The Celebrity Styler is a complete rip-off of my favorite styler, the InStyler. I’m not sure how Paris and co. get away with such a blatant rip off, so you should ban Paris! The InStyler rocks!
