Ms. Hilton began her career as a shriveled, bleary-eyed hand ornament, but soon rose to prominence as the universe's first canine reality star. On The Simple Life, she charmed audiences as large as 13.3 million viewers with her sweet personality, commanding stage presence, and unique sense of style best described as a cross between Bernini and Donatella Versace.


She became the embodiment of early-aughts pop culture, appearing in an Ellen von Unwerth-lensed Guess campaign and hosting Saturday Night Live alongside Keenan Thompson. Ms. Hilton was also an accomplished author, publishing The Tinkerbell Diaries: My Life Tailing Paris Hilton to critical acclaim in 2005.

Her survivors include her mother Paris, who raised her as a single parent, and various backup pets, including a Pomeranian, a kitten, and a ferret.
