without the fake blue lenses and the blonde hair she looks just like an italian american girl with brown eyes

California July 11, 2015 at 10:31 pm

She looks like an Eagle.

Check7t June 4, 2015 at 6:00 pm

Look at that nose, my goodness.

musicfangirl August 29, 2015 at 5:09 pm

ikr she should get a nose job

Capricious October 8, 2015 at 11:14 pm

If her nose were a person it would be considered anorexic.

mermaid_ May 28, 2015 at 1:12 am

Why is she even famous?

neiltennant April 6, 2015 at 10:35 am

i m not sure when BOTOX went popular among hollywood celebs

before botox there was only the possibility of FACELIFTS i guess

and i wonder how all the now botox addicted people looked before botox

normal !

look at MISS SHIT FIRST LADY LAUREN BUSH she looks like a frozen doll

and the same with KATHY HILTON
she looked like a 45 year old mummy on this picture , even she was younger then

and now like a frozen doll

spaceyaquarius August 8, 2013 at 1:51 am

Her name is Paris bc she is 100% French. That is what her dad said one time. SMH.

native american January 14, 2014 at 12:19 pm
neiltennant May 14, 2013 at 3:48 am

100 percent caucasian european, her ancestors didnt touch native americans or african americans.

now with the fake blonde hair+ fake blue eyes she looks rather polish, she looks like she would say MAMA DAVORKA WHERE IS MY BAGEL

but as a teen she looked more southern german/italian

theropod October 12, 2013 at 1:24 am

Yep, as a teen with her (REAL) brown eyes she looked an Italian who dyed her blonde.

dennybb August 8, 2014 at 7:47 pm

I don’t think you ever saw a real italian at all

check on youtube this north italians, Federica fontana – maddalena corvaglia – antonella clerici – alessia marcuzzi – paola barale – lorella cuccarini – ilary blasi – giulia montanarini

take a trip in north italy and you will find more natural blonde than in california where all the women are bleaching their hair blonde


neiltennant April 3, 2015 at 5:38 am

Please don’t stop with those claims

of course italians can be Blue eyed and blonde but 90 percent of italians don’t look like the guys and women you mentioned.

and you cannot say that italians in the north are blonde and blue eyed only

i was in sicily and there were a few black haired and green or blue eyed people but also in milano on the other side there had been more black haird and brown eyed people

most hollywood actors who are of italian descent even a half italian american all have black hair and brown eyes

thats it

of course there are exceptions but that s it

paris hilton is a kind girl but before plastic surgery and fake hair and fake contacts she looked like a typical italian girl or 90 percent of the people in italy

Naza July 13, 2015 at 12:48 am

We know that there are blondes among Italians, being exactly Northern Italians as it does matter but this area was also several centuries ago invaded by German tribes and then mixed marriages which lead to the increase of people with this phenotype but still Italians are dark unlike to Northern Europeans))) Federica Fontana is the spitting image of a German woman with a slight Italian feature( hawk nose esp.)))

victoria February 21, 2013 at 5:00 am

With that nose i was so sure she was Jewish hehe joke ;)

victoria March 26, 2013 at 5:27 am

Are you being sarcastic? LOL

victoria March 26, 2013 at 2:21 pm
theropod June 24, 2013 at 3:01 am

She also has brown eyes.

follers June 24, 2013 at 3:10 am

She doesn’t have brown eyes. And 99% of people with brown eyes aren’t Jewish.

theropod October 12, 2013 at 1:25 am

Jewish or not, her natural eye color is brown. She puts contacts.

daria January 8, 2014 at 11:24 pm
Alice January 9, 2014 at 3:19 am

follers everyone knows that Paris wears blue contacts :)

neiltennant April 3, 2015 at 5:40 am

oh on this picture everything is clear :-))

the whole family looked so strange and scary

look how their mom looked then. She must have tons of plastic surgery.

That was the time before the family discovered plastic surgery

now her mom looks like a frozen doll

Lisette December 28, 2012 at 2:53 pm

I thought she was just Caucasian. Like what’s up with that her hair is blonde and what not we see what she wanna be.

GeorgeJeanPierre January 2, 2013 at 3:33 pm

are you smoking crack?

victoria February 21, 2013 at 5:09 am

I agree i do wonder if some of these people are talking out of their arses

Nutella83 February 2, 2013 at 10:43 pm

She is just Caucasian… can’t you read? She only goes back to Europeans.

ichbinich November 17, 2012 at 1:44 pm

to Hope Moretti
Her hole facial features doesn’t look german

Hope Moretti September 27, 2012 at 1:27 am

She looks German yes (with those blue eye contacts and blonde hair)
She would look more Italian if she leaves her natural hair color and her natural brown eyes.

levangelista36 June 19, 2012 at 6:02 am

Her mother’s name is Kathy Avanzino. That’s Italian, I’m sure. Where from in Italy? I’ve heard this surname before.

andrew February 14, 2013 at 2:25 am

It’s a common surname from Genoa in Liguria.

Milka May 8, 2012 at 3:39 pm

The thing that bothers me about her besides that shes a world class slut is her fakeness. Just like so called beauty Marilyn Monroe everything is artificial. Her nose, haircolour, even eye colour(who wears colored lenses everyday and never shows the real color anyway that’s creepy). And she still looks mediocre. I mean come on does anyone really expect to get away with that. I hate those wannabes. No respect from me.

nnnnn April 29, 2013 at 1:56 pm

You are right (in general), but I don’t think, her nose is artificial.
She has an ugly nose.
And – she has no silicone!!!! She diserves a memorial!

sadie March 23, 2012 at 11:48 am

Boy, you can sure tell Paris is not well liked by the many hidden comments. You know, I agree she is ugly and a skank. She only became popular for her nasty sex tape. She is not a celebrity just a spoiled rich bitch from her daddy’s money.

christian March 25, 2012 at 4:22 pm

shut up

she is a legend

she is rich and famous , whats the problem ?

and we are talking about ethnicity and not about other thing s

nnnnn September 2, 2012 at 1:33 pm

I thought, she’s a symbol of stupidity…before appeared Kim Karadshian

christian March 22, 2012 at 4:35 pm

with those died blond hair and blue contacts she looks like a typical polish girl

i know 5 polish girls who look like her

but at older pictures she looks very german with her brown hair, and her brown eyes

and its false to think, that all germans all blue eyed, actually more people here in germany have brown hair and eyes than other types

cool March 14, 2012 at 8:41 am

Not according to Tom Hanks’ page. Not only did they try to claim him as a black man, but they also said that anyone who is not Anglo is not white. Italians and Portuguese are not Anglo. So they are not white.

multigrl July 5, 2012 at 2:18 am

Italians is an ethnicity within the white/caucasian race. Get a clue or at least give google a try so you will understand what race vs. ethnicity is.

You mmanaged to get a computer, find and ISP get on the the internet and get an e-mail address. Start using your mind to dig around the internet so you won’t sound so senseless.

I love you, Roger Scientist March 12, 2012 at 10:04 pm

Paris is not white because she is part Irish, Italian, Norwegian, and French, which are not Anglo.

LOPAC AGREES March 14, 2012 at 6:36 pm

Norwegian are Scandinavians just like Danes, Swedes, Icelandic & Finnish. The Vikings started sailing along the European coasts during eighth century. The Scandinavians of the Early Middles Ages were also know a Vikings,Varangians, or Normans, though they formed no ethnic or political. I’m part Danish.

Niecy February 10, 2012 at 7:58 pm

She does look a bit Spanish, but more English/ Spanish, not really South American Spanish. But still, she’s had so much work done, you can’t tell!

Habe February 18, 2012 at 12:07 pm

No she doe’snt.

storm January 29, 2012 at 5:36 pm

she is biracial cause she part Italian

Habe February 23, 2012 at 8:18 pm

Is not biracial. Italian people are white, you idiot!!!!

natalie harper January 29, 2012 at 5:23 pm

Is her lips stuck?

Haley January 28, 2012 at 3:12 pm

She is not Spanish or French or Scottish or Polish or Swiss. She looks more German & Norwegian. She is a little bit Italian.

Haley January 28, 2012 at 12:56 pm

She does’nt have any Spanish ancestry in her or French or Portugese or Welsh or Swiss or Polish. She looks more German and Norweigan, then Irish & Italian.

laura January 21, 2012 at 9:56 pm

She looks Swiss or Polish

mm January 17, 2012 at 7:07 pm

The problem with her is that she’s fake looking, so you can’t really see any ethnicities. She wears colored contacts, LOTS of makeup, and bleaches her hair. I wonder what she would actually look like without these things.

dvanilla January 17, 2012 at 11:42 am

Paris is very beautiful. And so is all the other celebrities who is sharing there Ethnicity with us.

Mac January 13, 2012 at 7:44 pm

The slut is every ethnicity

Haley January 29, 2012 at 9:19 pm

She is a ugly slut!

mick January 13, 2012 at 9:55 am

She’s ugly and dumb.

Haley January 29, 2012 at 5:18 pm

I agree.

Anisa January 13, 2012 at 3:04 am

I didn’t expect such a mixture i was thinking Scottish, English, Irish MAX. She’s quite plain.

! January 15, 2012 at 10:20 am

English isn’t plain. Scottish and Irish people aren’t plain at all! Honestly there really isn’t one ethnicity that’s plain. Just attractive and plain people in all ethnicities.

jf January 19, 2012 at 2:43 pm

I think that person meant “plain” in terms of attractiveness, not in terms of being English/Scottish etc.

Nicole January 12, 2012 at 8:35 pm

EW, gotta hate girls that think that are stuck up, and snotty. No offense Paris but your ugly.

ratkom January 5, 2012 at 10:07 pm

are kidding me people most american are irish and italian. and you know the italians are the best and hottest all, english or german. look the most hottest people like lady gaga and john travolta and madonna are all ITALIAN!!

what? January 9, 2012 at 11:18 am

lady gaga and john travolta are “hot”?
looks like lady had surgery just to look presentable.
madonna is not that attractive either. sexy persona, but not pretty. ugh

if you notice, some of the most beautiful either have russian or polish descent. some italians are gorgeous though, but most arent

what? January 9, 2012 at 11:18 am

i should say ukrainian as well!

Maria January 2, 2012 at 1:09 pm

She has bit of mix in there.She is ok looking i guess but she is a spoiled bimbo.

Ammz October 27, 2011 at 5:23 am

Does it really matter when she’s 100% plastic? LOL.

Mike June 24, 2011 at 3:41 pm

kinda ot but she;s got a nice body with a strange face X)

Checca96:) December 30, 2011 at 8:57 am

She’s beautiful but i don’ like her nose

andrea June 17, 2011 at 6:36 am

does exist an american without any italian relatives? avanzino is a common neapolitan surname

Katja June 30, 2011 at 9:31 am

Ummm, a lot of Americans aren’t Italian. Most are part German or Irish.

kate August 28, 2011 at 9:04 am

Most are english first, then irish and then german, or irish – german 2nd place.

Paul. August 28, 2011 at 2:46 pm

No. German-American first, Irish-American second and then English-American. Google it.

Jimenéz January 29, 2012 at 5:30 pm

Paul, if you loo at the numbers then there are many people who just report “American” and many of those Irish and German and other groups have one thing in common – they usually have English ancestry as well.
English is clearly the most widespread ancestry in the USA.

Get real December 30, 2011 at 12:21 pm

Wow, you’re a smart cookie! I bet your parents are proud. That was a joke if you didnt know. The truth is, most Americans are NOT Italian. Look it up. It’s pretty rare for an American to have Italian, as the most common ehtnicities in the USA are German and Irish. Good thing too, because while German and Irish aren’t the most pretty faces, Italian is worse with those big ugly shaped noses, flat cheeks and boring shaped faces. Hilton does have Italian which is why her nose is kind of ugly. But her Norwegian/swedish and extensive mix of other ethnicity offsets it, making her attractive. And folks, Hilton is attractive. She has enough of the requirements of being attractive to be called such. No one is perfect, but she does have that strong jaw, well defined cheekbones, those large eyes, the full lips, etc. Maybe her nose is ugly, but hey, at least it means she isn’t plastic. Those of you saying she is plastic are ridiculous. If she was plastic, she would have corrected that nose first. The nose actually fits her large bone structure, much like it did for Sophia Lorens big nose, and look at how beautiful overall she is!

Get real December 30, 2011 at 12:23 pm

I was addressing Andrea, not the others, who seem to know their business. Poor Amdrea needs a reality check!

Meg January 3, 2012 at 8:12 am

Uh…I think her nose IS the only thing she actually had plastic surgery on (on her face anyway)and kinda messed it up. It’s very obviously too, if you look at photos of her when she was a teenager/young adult. So insisting her nose the fault of anything but a nose narrowing job gone wrong is ridiculous XD

what? January 9, 2012 at 11:20 am

she had some facial implants if you notice her face is much wider than it once was… she also wears color contacts, dyes hair, etc. i dont think there is anything real about her but her flat chest and a**

Jo April 12, 2011 at 6:11 pm

she’s quite exotic-looking so this makes sense.

Jo June 17, 2011 at 9:45 am

hahaha…. seriously, people voted me down for being honest? I didnt say she was attractive, I pointed out that she is EXOTIC. grow up, children.

kris March 12, 2011 at 12:06 am

I think she looks like donald trump.. maybe her mother had a affair wit him.. well that’s what I heard.

Natasha February 14, 2011 at 9:49 am

I used to think she looked Australian,because so many of them are blonde.

--0 August 16, 2011 at 5:44 am

Most australians are english.

Alice December 30, 2011 at 8:00 am

Australians are a mixture of pe0ple from the British Isles. There are more Australians of Irish descent than Americans of Irish descent. There are also a lot of other Europeans like Greeks and Italian. In the last 40 years there have been a lot of Asian people coming to Australia. We are a very multicultural country. Paris does not look particularly Australian. Australians can look like any nationality.

Suki January 28, 2011 at 1:28 pm

Paris and Nicky Hilton’s mother is Kathy not Karen. “Correction”

MARTIN MASI September 24, 2010 at 4:25 pm

I love the wind February 21, 2011 at 11:25 pm

I concur. But I do find it rather interesting to see the general reaction to such a delicate subject as race when people are able to hide behind screen names and faceless computer screens. It allows one to see their true, unguarded, and unabashedly ignorant thoughts. Additionally, I’m always curious about what race celebrities are.

Shannon September 18, 2010 at 1:55 pm

I don’t care too much for her but I do think it is cool that alot of her great grandparents etc. were born in or moved to Maryland : )

katie September 10, 2010 at 2:19 am

she looks so semetic to me if you take away her pigmentation, I suppose its the long nose,heavy lids and lge lips.Hard to conclude anything on this mass surgery project.

I love the wind February 21, 2011 at 11:26 pm

Pigmentation? What, her eyes and hair? Those of Jewish descent are usually quite fair skinned.

Fuzzybear February 22, 2011 at 2:56 am

To I love the wind

That’s just some jews,they come in all colors.Many hid the black heritage,by saying they were Jewish.

Get real December 30, 2011 at 12:28 pm

Hilton is not Jewish. Why would someone ever say something like that? Nothing wrong with being Jewish, but the simple fact that she is not Jewish doesnt make any sense to say she is, and this unrealistic chatter is waste of space. Talk about facts people.

Buzo BX Albanian September 4, 2010 at 5:29 pm

the isdiot that said jewish! omg youre so dumb jewish isnt a nationality its a religion, she probs had jewish relatives way back hence they are so rich!

Kim July 25, 2010 at 4:50 pm

The Jews , also known as the Jewish people, are a nation and ethnoreligious group originating in the Israelites or Hebrews of the Ancient Near East. The Jewish ethnicity, nationality, and religion are strongly interrelated ,

^^^ thats from wikipedia.. Ashkenazi Jews have similar DNA which is different to the rest of other white people. Their DNA traces their ancestry way back to the middle east. Thats why they are considered an ethnicity in their own way.

Jimenez January 9, 2012 at 11:43 am

Not true. Judaism is a religion, but being Jewish isn’t, because it’s based on lineages of your ancestry. You can become Jewish, but that’s just like being adopted by a TRIBE. You can be Jewish and atheist at the same time, for example.
Whether it should be considered tribal, or ethnic designation, I’m not sure.

tiny June 9, 2010 at 12:16 pm

isnt swiss a cheese not a coolor

Look here!! She is also a little Wales, Portuguese and Spanish blood!

anonymous February 26, 2010 at 10:11 am

if you look closely at her close ups (face), she wears blue contact lenses,
but you can still see her ark brown eyes at the edges of the lens. and if you’ve seen
pics of her childhood, she’s a brunette.

Source; her own biography book complete with pictures.

haayleyyy February 9, 2010 at 7:26 am

wow…. according to hm pic shes got contact lens now, w/ died bleach blonde hair and a fake tan….. looks like a nose and lip and boob job too

rockstarrr. January 19, 2010 at 7:00 am

Lol, not all ”blondes” are like that.
”Brunette’s” can be bitchy too, rofl.

ilovemyethan January 19, 2010 at 5:44 am

i never really liked blodes with blue eyes, like my classmate maggie last year. she wuz a whiny bitch

Jen January 9, 2010 at 7:27 am

Luomi, I agree…! I’m not 100% on this but I’m sure Paris has naturally brown eyes and blue contact lenses to look like a ‘party girl’ which is just silly….You never know with Paris.

And thanks for the pics ;)

Luomi (cloudberry) January 6, 2010 at 10:36 pm

Paris Hilton does not look particularly Swedish (or Norwegian),
even with blonde hair and blue eyes.
I think she looks (and acts) very unnatural.
And she is 1/16 Norwegian (From Kløfta, Akershus).

Swedish TV-chef Tina Nordström (From Helsingborg,Skåne)
Norwegian journalists Anne Rimmen (Danish parents)
and Liza Stokke (Porsgrunn, Telemark)

Paul¬! January 5, 2010 at 10:39 am

With her blonde hair/blue eyes, so does give off a Swedish look.
But then again, I don’t know which parts of her are fake or not. :o

dude December 31, 2009 at 10:19 am

she has a nose like most swedes and norwegians i’ve seen

Paul. December 29, 2009 at 6:11 am

Hilton is an English surname, but as Ethnic said, her Norwegian relative adopted the name. She’s identified herself as Irish too. She came here to promote her perfume in 2006, I think.

Yep, here’s the link:

Nathan Teasdale Mottram December 28, 2009 at 4:50 am

omg hilton is not norweigen at all its an english second name and no the americans did not adapt it to be american i know loads of people with second name hilton my cousins second name is hilton so dont know were you get that from rhbjorn

Paul. December 28, 2009 at 12:28 am

It’s kinda weird that minus the English, Scottish and Norwegian from her and minus the Chinese and Japanese from me, we’d have the exact same heritage.


Jen December 21, 2009 at 7:40 pm

Looking on at the surnames in her family. In the family, there is the surname ‘Lemaster’ and that is of French origin, therefore making her having a bit of French in her. Also, i found Scottish and English too.

The name Hilton is Norwegian, not English. It is the name of August Halvorsens family farm, when he moved to the US he adopted it as a surname. He was simply August Halvorsen(from) Hilton.

p.s. for the lazies, here is a photo. even on it states that she wears blue contacts. sorry to burst your bubble ariana and nathan.

you guys that are freaking out over her natural hair color and eye color- it is NOT blonde and blue. she was a blonde as a young child, but her hair is dark brown. look it up on google. as for the person ranting about her not wearing blue contacts, YES SHE DOES.
it is the reason why she has a lazy eye, she could correct the problem if she stopped wearing the blue contacts (which she only wears for the color, she does not need vision correction), but she refuses to do so.

Hi Nathan, thanks for the comment. Youre right Hilton is an English name. But if you look on the ancestry. August Halvorsen Hilton adopted the English surname when he moved to the US in the latter part of the 1800s.

Hilton is actually the name of the Norwegian farm he left.
The reason he didn’t have the name at first is because Norwegians at the time took their fathers first name as their last name and added the -sen ending.

If you check the link it shows her ancestry. It doesnt seem to show any Russian or Ukrainian origin.
