During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Kyle Richards looked back on niece Paris Hilton‘s sex tape that was released in 2004 by her ex-boyfriend Rick Salomon shortly after Hilton’s TV series The Simple Life debuted.

The 51-year-old Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, who is the sister of Paris‘ mom Kathy Hilton, says the Hilton family was devastated by Paris Hilton’s sex tape.

“When your niece Paris’ tape was leaked, did you initially think it would ruin her career or help catapult her star power?” American television talk show host Andy Cohen asked.

“Ruin,” Kyle said. “We were devastated. Like my whole — it was horrible.”

In May 2013, Paris Hilton flaunted her legs during the Cannes Film Fest.

Not one to miss such an event, the heiress jetted to France and brought along her model boy toy, River Viiperi. Of course, wherever Paris went, shutterbugs followed.

Check out these pictures of her sporting a gorgeous dress as she gets ambushed by some fans and paparazzi. We simply couldn’t take our eyes away from her lovely red frock.

The dress is from Herve Leger, but unlike most Herve Leger pieces, Paris’ little red number comes trimmed with diamond-shaped appliqués around the edges.

It doesn’t have the usual bandage construction but instead utilizes a midweight ribbed jersey fabric to achieve the second-skin finish. Altogether, it’s a very ladylike and alluring dress any girl would like to have.

Of course, the part that really makes it such a wow piece is the color — a beautiful poppy coral that complements Paris’ fabulous tan.

With something so bright, you don’t need a lot to look striking, which is why Paris chose to wear it with classic extras — diamonds, a black bag, and black Christian Louboutin pumps. She kept her hair parted at the center and gave it a little retro styling.
