The socialite-turned-shoe designer is on the go. Paris Hilton has been making the rounds to expand her line internationally, including introducing the collection in Turkey and opening three freestanding shops in the Philippines and three shop-in-shops in India in the last two months. Hilton will continue with the busy travel schedule next year, unveiling Paris Hilton Signature stores in several other yet-to-be-named countries (her stores and shops are currently in 36 countries worldwide). But Hilton also is expanding her lifestyle line with the launch of St. Moritz, her 14th fragrance under the Passport Collection. And it doesn't stop there: Hilton is investing in side projects. She was recently in Spain to support the Paris Hilton Racing Team, where one of her riders won first place in the MotoGP Grand Prix Finals.

Item I never leave home without:

Cell phone. "I like to stay connected with my family, friends and fans. I'm able to use all my social networking platforms to update everyone if something fun or funny happens."

Best on-camera moment:

"I love anything funny, so when I was on the show 'I Get That a Lot,' pumping gas for customers, I had a blast. I'm glad it was captured on video because the customers were hysterical."

Favorite shoe trend of the moment:

I love front platforms. The trend is amazing because it makes shoes more comfortable while keeping the height to make your legs look longer and leaner."

If I had a time machine I'd travel to:

The 1940s and '50s. "Hollywood was so glamorous when Marilyn Monroe and Audrey Hepburn were alive."

So hot right now:

"Nude pumps have been extremely popular because they can be dressed up or dressed down."

Biggest guilty pleasure:
When I love a movie, I watch it all the time. I've seen 'There's Something About Mary' dozens of times. Another guilty pleasure is watching my aunts on 'The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.' They're amazing."
