One picture from Paris Hilton caused social media to believe she was throwing shade at former friend and assistant Kim Kardashian! The socialite decided to share a Throwback Thursday pic from last year.
The professional snap features Paris in a setting similar to that iconic American Beauty scene, posing on a bed of red rose petals and having her private parts covered by the flowers as well.
‘Love these photos I shot last year with the incredibly talented @BrendonForbes #iconic,’ the star wrote in the caption.
But why would she repost this older photo?
Fans think that she did it to not so subtly shade Kim Kardashian who only recently took very similar pics as a promotional ad for her KKW Beauty Cherry Blossom Collection.
That being said, seeing how Hilton shared her photoshoot only a few days after Kim shared hers caused social media to believe she was suggesting Kim copied her.
‘Cherry Blossom Dreams,’ the Kardashian wrote in the caption of a pic that featured her on a bed of cherry blossoms this time, with some flowers covering her as well.

My new 🌸 @kkwbeauty Classic Blossom Collection 🌸 is almost here and is inspired by my love for the pretty pink-colored Cherry Blossom trees (Chi’s baby shower was cherry blossom themed!) 🌸 The collection includes a 10-pan eyeshadow palette, 3 blushes, 8 lipsticks and 3 lip liners in shades of pretty pinks and berries 💕 So excited for you guys to get this beautiful collection !
‘Hehe you create trends, ideas and THEN PEOPLE COPY,’ one follower commented on Hilton’s post.
Another seemed to think the same when they wrote: ‘Kim is always stealing something from someone. Shissh be original Mrs. West.’
‘Are u having a war with Kim? Hers look better,’ someone defended the KUWK star.
Of course, no one knows if Paris really intended to slam her former assistant or not, but either way, it doesn’t look like the Kardashians are bothered considering Khloe Kardashian double tapped the photo.
Despite years of being hot and cold, it looks like the two women are friends again now.
Paris even talked to ET, telling the outlet how she felt about dressing like Kim for Kanye’s Yeezy campaign.
‘I looked in the mirror and I’m like, ‘Oh my god! I look like a Kim clone!’ It was really cool. I thought it was awesome that there were so many girls that did it. I love the line. It was very sexy,’ she shared.
Do you think the Throwback Thursday was meant to throw shade or are fans reading too much into it?
