Long before it became standard practice, Paris Hilton made an art form out of documenting day-to-day minutiae. Two decades into it, the socialite and DJ is returning to her reality TV roots with a new YouTube Originals documentary called This Is Paris, which will introduce viewers to the person behind the persona. Ahead of its release, Hilton spent a summer afternoon at her Los Angeles home appraising a handful of designer gloves. And yes, it was hot.
