On Sunday, October 18, Paris posted a clip of her and Kim showing off their new velour two-piece outfits from the clothing line. In the video shared with her 13.3 million followers, Paris and Kim posed together in the outfits. The back-to-back photos were featured in a slideshow. The duo wore matching light gray velour tracksuits.
Kim Kardashian and Paris Hilton are “twinning”
The velour tracksuits were first made popular by the pair in the early 2000s. It’s reminiscent of the Juicy Couture tracksuit that every starlet and celebrity wore. Kim also took to her Instagram page to share a clip of herself with Paris. The two posed for the cameras as they played on their Nokia flip phones.
Kim also wore a honey-colored velour crop top with tracksuit bottoms in a parking garage. Besides her, The Simple Life alum wore a velour zip-up hoodie with matching tracksuit bottoms in plum.

How Kim inspired Paris
This launch comes just weeks after Paris Hilton revealed that Kim Kardashian encouraged her to freeze her eggs so she can fulfill her dreams of motherhood. In an interview with The Sunday Times, the heiress said she was “inspired” by her friend after they had an “amazing conversation.” She decided to freeze her eggs a few years ago.
“I had a really amazing conversation with Kim [Kardashian] about it,” Paris explained. “She introduced me to her doctor, and I was so inspired by her to actually do it. I think every woman should do it because you can really control it and not have that ‘Oh my God, I need to get married.'”
The pair have remained close friends for several years. Their friendship grew when Kim used to work for Pairs. What are your thoughts on Paris and Kim’s new photoshoot? Sound off below in the comments section.
