Paris in Manila

Paris Hilton (Mike Alquinto, NPPA Images)(UPDATE) After months of speculation about whether or not she will visit the Philippines, Paris Hilton has finally set foot in the country at 10:50 p.m. on Sunday, August 14. 

Media men failed to get a few words from the hotel heiress, who was dressed in a mustard-colored blouse and blue jeans. A big pair of dark shades prevented everyone from seeing her reaction upon arriving at the Ninoy Aquino International Airport via Emirates Airways Flight EK334. 

The Hollywood actress and hotel heiress is reportedly tired from her trip and is said to be billeted in the Manila Hotel. She will stay in the country for five days.

Meanwhile ABS-CBN News reported that Paris lost two mobile phones while en route to Manila. The report also said that authorities are now investigating the incident.

Before she arrived in the Philippines, Paris tweeted about her excitement in coming over.

“Hi, everyone in the Philippines. I’m coming out there and I’m really excited to see you all and also excited doing a very exciting project there.”

Last Aug. 2, Paris tweeted long-time Filipino fan, Isha Dinio, whom she has been following for a year, “Hey @iamishagirl, I'm flying to Manilla, Philippines on August 13th for a few days. Would love to meet up while I'm there. Love you. xo P.”

Paris is up for a courtesy call to President Noynoy Aquino and is expected to meet up with her friends, Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao and his wife Jinkee.  There are speculations that she will join Manny in a business venture.

Paris is also expected to visit SM Megamall on Aug. 18 for the opening of the Paris Hilton Megamall Shop. A meet and greet will follow at the Megamall Atrium at 4 pm.

Real estate firm Century Properties revealed in an e-mail that Paris will be its official ambassador and will be part of its creative and design team. As such, she will  design the Beach Club amenity of Azure, located at the southern part of Manila.

Paris also runs a beach club, which will have a branch in Manila.  Her fashion empire includes the Paris Hilton Handbags and Accessories in Davao.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
