Sex appeal: Paris added some racy stockings to her otherwise sweet outfit
Paris Hilton may have decided that her outfit was a little too sweet before she stepped out in Los Angeles today.
To make sure she was still oozing sex appeal, the heiress added a pair of racy tights designed to look like suspenders.
She teamed the stockings with a black figure skater dress and lacy black jacket for her day out in Beverly Hills.

And the tights weren’t the only interesting accessory the blonde decided to slip on for her outing, as she also donned a pair of Prada sunglasses which boasted swirls on the arms.
The star picked up a hot pink smoothie to sip as she strolled down the street, perhaps just in case her all-black outfit needed an eye popping colour to top it off.
Pairs expertly stepped out of her white car while keeping herself covered up with a large silver handbag, protecting her modesty from the paparazzi.

The Simple Life star was shopping alone but the fruits of her trip seemed to be successful, when she was spotted loading a Louis Vuitton carrier bag into her car before driving off.
Paris may be a fashion fanatic, but she is somewhat behind on the suspender tights trend. The trompe l’oeil tights, sold by French lingerie brand Chantal Thomas and most significantly by House of Holland in the UK, were made popular after being spotted on singer Lily Allen in 2009.

They were then adopted by a host of British celebrities including British Royal Princess Eugenie, The Saturdays singer Frankie Sandford and Welsh star Charlotte Church. Rihanna and Selena Gomez took the hosiery trend across the Atlantic in November of last year.
And now it seems Paris may be following in the footsteps of the pair and hoping to give the accessory a new lease of life in the U.S.A.
