MANILA, Philippines—Hotel heiress and all-around media pop star Paris Hilton arrived on a drizzling Sunday night aboard an Emirates Airlines flight from Dubai, welcomed by a throng of international and local press.
She is on a five-day visit to Manila, where she is scheduled to meet with executives of real-estate firm Century Properties inviting her to design its upcoming “urban resort” named Azure in Parañaque City. The celebrity was tapped to jazz up the property’s beach club.
Hilton, heiress of the Hilton hotel empire, will also be opening her namesake luxury store at SM Megamall on Aug. 18.
Malacañang has yet to confirm if Hilton would meet President Aquino, although earlier reports suggested a meet-and-greet might take place.
