We don’t even know Paris Hilton, but we needed a few days to recover from her “Moulin Rouge” themed 30th birthday bash that took place Tuesday evening. The heiress turns 30 today, yet it seems she’s lived 1,000 years.

Hilton, aware of her old maid status, seems to have come to terms with it, at least because she still looks young.

“I’m freaking out! I can’t believe I’m going to be 30!” Paris told UK’s Closer earlier this month. “But at least I still look like I’m 20!”

Hilton’s younger years were nothing short of chaotic. In 2003, she appeared in a sex tape that went viral. Three years later, Hilton was arrested and charged with driving under the influence of alcohol.

For her 21st birthday, Hilton hosted five different parties for herself in one evening. It’s quite an act to follow, and now that she’s reached what Hollywood considers an old age, we’ll see in she slows down just a bit.

So, Happy Birthday to our favorite former “It” Girl. Perhaps she’ll take up knitting now that she has bid farewell to her twenties. Scroll through our photo gallery for a nostalgic whiff of Hilton’s glory days.
