When you're rich and famous, spending the summer in the Hamptons or Malibu just seems so pedestrian these days. Any real celebrity worth her weight in Christian Louboutins knows the place to be is a sun-drenched spot in Europe. Over just the last six weeks we've seen Naomi Campbell dancing through the streets of Southern Italy, Ryan Seacrest yachting around the French Riviera, Jessica Alba tweeting from a lounge chair on the Amalfi Coast, and Kim K. and Kanye hitting up Fashion Week in Paris.
Now we can add Paris Hilton to the list of jet-setting celebs jaunting around Europe during the warm-weather months. The gazillionaire hotel heiress was spotted over the weekend partying in the ritzy vacation hot spot of St. Tropez, France, with sister, Nicky. And she clearly wasn't looking to stay out of the spotlight, donning a long and flowy belted swim coverup, a glitzy one piece, giant floppy hat, oversized shades, black flats, and a leather purse with a bright green skull on it. The 31-year-old trekked across the sand at the swanky beach club Le Club 55 while having an animated conversation on her cell phone before hopping into a dinghy, which took her, Nicky, and a gaggle of pals including cousin Whitney Davis (daughter of Paris' aunt and "Real Housewives of Beverly Hills" star Kim Richards) to a waiting yacht.
Paris kept friends and fans abreast of her non-stop water activities and club-going, tweeting on Saturday: "Such a fun day today! Swimming, jet skiing, getting tan. Then lunch at 55 then pool party at Nikki Beach! I love St Tropez!" She followed up with another update on Sunday: "Had fun dinner with @Whittles2 (cousin Davis) at The Byblos Hotel. Then danced the night away at Les Caves Du Roy. Partying St Tropez style! #YES!"
But all good parties must come to an end, of course. The best part about Paris Hilton's life, however, is that when one ends, another is just beginning. "All packed and ready for the next destination," Paris tweeted on Monday along with a pic of herself sitting next to enough luggage to clothe a small village. "Bye St Tropez! Next stop Ibiza!"
