Paris Hilton's Weed Stash during Milan fashion week
Like any party girl, Paris Hilton has space in her handbag for only the barest of essentials: a vial of nail varnish for emergency repairs, a mobile phone - and a bag of suspicious-looking leaves.
The fast-living hotel heiress accidentally gave observers a glimpse of the clear plastic wallet, containing what might be mistaken for cannabis, at a Milan fashion show last week.
But last night her publicist Elliot Mintz insisted: “Things are not always as they appear. It would be unfair to draw any conclusions based solely on these photos.”
The contents of Miss Hilton’s silver handbag were exposed as she reached in to touch up her shocking pink nail varnish while in the front row of a Dolce & Gabbana catwalk show.
