Socialite Paris Hilton turned 40 last February 17th, but she only celebrated her birthday a month after, with her fiancé Carter Reum and her friends throwing a party for her in the backyard of her Beverly Hills home.

A great-granddaughter of the founder of Hilton Hotels, Hilton first attracted tabloid attention in the late 1990s, when she became a fixture in NYC’s late-night scene. She then skyrocketed to fame after starring with her friend and fellow socialite Nicole Richie on the Fox/E! reality series The Simple Life from 2003 to 2007. In subsequent years, Hilton tried recording and acting. And just this year, she began hosting her own podcast show, This Is Paris, on IHeartRadio.
