Paris Hilton has designed a range of T-shirts backing her to become the next US President.
The hotel heiress recently "announced" her candidacy in a spoof online video - which she made after 71-year-old Republican Presidential candidate John McCain used her image without permission in a TV campaign mocking his rival Barack Obama - and decided to make the T-shirts, which are available from fashionable Los Angeles boutique Kitson, for her supporters.
She said: "I bought a 'Paris for President' shirt a few years ago and thought it would be fun to do my own. I think I'd make the best President."
In the joke video, Paris claimed she would paint the White House pink if she was elected and would appoint 'Umbrella' singer Rihanna as her Vice President.
Paris, who lies on a sun lounger wearing a leopard-print swimsuit and stiletto heels in the promo, says: "Hey America, I'm Paris Hilton and I'm a celebrity too. Only I'm not from the olden days and I'm not promising change like that other guy. I'm just hot!
"But then that wrinkly white-haired guy used me in his campaign ad', which I guess means I'm running for president. So thanks for the endorsement white-haired dude, and I want America to know I'm, like, totally ready to lead."
Speaking about McCain later in the clip, she jokes: "He is the oldest celebrity in the world... like super-old, old enough to remember when dancing was a sin and beer was served in a bucket.... but is he ready to lead?"
