YouTube Treasure: The Original Paris Hilton
Way before Paris Hilton became the Maria Callas of the Prada-for-lunch bunch, there was an Andy Warhol superstar named Baby Jane Holzer, who put her blonde tresses to work by singing and even getting on a TV show. Well, maybe you wouldn't actually call it singing--her voice tends to be as thin as Edie Sedgwick, but the song is hypnotically appealing, like something out of the de rigueur cafe scene in any foreign arthouse movie, and as an extra bonus, Jane certainly looks to die for. I know the woman, having met her when she went into real estate years after the Warhol superstar heyday, and I'm thrilled to now own this precious little piece of her past. It's a real kitschy coup.
