Brandy: "On this particular day Paris Hilton reverted back to her old Hollywood starlet look with a halter dress. It’s a shot that combines nostalgia for the old Paris with nostalgia for the old Hollywood. This is how Paris is supposed to look. She has coordinated her sunglasses with her bag and her dress and I am sure that she is wearing turquoise heels."
