Kim Kardashian & Paris Hilton Early '00s Outfits That Defined The Decade — PHOTOS
It's hard to put just one word on the styles that defined this decade, but these two stars totally exemplified the fashion from the 2000s. Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton had iconic '00s fashion that will forever go down in history as perfect examples of how we all wanted to dress back then.
It's hard to imagine a time before Kardashian's see-though Givenchy dress, but there was indeed a day when her style was very, very different. Way back when Kardashian and Hilton were BFFs, the two ran the fashion world together. I can only imagine that meant sharing clothing and giving each other tons of style advice. Although their friendship didn't last, their infamous style habits will definitely stay burned into my memory for decades to come.
It was the era of bleach blonde hair and The Simple Life, when live was all about that spray tan and those mini dresses. The tides may have changed since then, with the 2010s taking many cues from the '90s, but the early '00s sure did leave us with some memorable looks. Kardashian and Hilton were by far the two most dedicated dressers of the decade. If you don't believe me, just see for yourself.
1. Bright Pink Swimwear
If pink zebra print doesn't say '00s, then I don't know what does.
Or maybe the metallic one-piece is more your style.
2. Halter Tops
Life was all about the halter tops. It didn't matter what color or print.
I don't really know what else to say about this.
4. Matching Sweatsuits
Everyone I know either had one of these or desperately wanted one.
5. Mini Skirts
The skirts were short and the colored bra straps were showing.
6. Oversized Sunglasses
Pair them with hoop earrings and an over-the-shoulder bag and you've got the '00s in a nutshell.
7. Spaghetti Straps
When it came to tube tops, it was the brighter the better. Also, note the ripped bell bottoms.
8. Really Small Jackets
I never really understood the idea of an super shrunken jacket, but Kardashian was pretty into it.
9. Super Shiny Everything
The two were all about glossy everything, from their hair to their camisoles.
10. Neon Colors
Hilton definitely wasn't afraid of color during the '00s.
Loud enough for you?
11. Belted Shirts
Nice matching white leather everything, Kim K.
12. Babydoll Dresses
In matching colors of course.
13. Unique Patterns
I'm not even sure how to categorize this.
14. Pink On Pink On Pink
On top of all this pink, she had the ultimate 2000s man-crush, Nick Carter at her side.
15. Two Pieces
Forget Taylor Swift, Hilton was the original co-ord queen.
