We’ve officially come full, scantily-clad circle.

Many years ago, Paris Hilton sky-rocketed to the top of the A-List after starring in a sex tape titled 1 Night in Paris.

Many years later, Kim Kardashian sky-rocketed to the top of the A-List after starring in a sex tape titled Kim Kardashian Superstar.

It’s worth noting, of course, that Kim worked for a long time as Hilton’s personal assistant and the two were pretty good friends.

So it’s not difficult for one to connect the naked dots and realize that Kim was motivated to get pounded by Ray J on camera by the way that Paris got pounded on camera…

… and subsequently raked in big bucks and major headlines.

Since her starring sex tape turn, Kardashian has blown past Hilton when it comes to Q Rating, popularity and wealth.

You can barely go a day without hearing something about her; while we bet you’d need to rack your brain harder than an erect Ray J on video in order to remember the last notable story you read about Paris Hilton.

This is a long preamble to make the following point;

Paris has finally come to this same realization.

She is no longer trying to pretend that she’s on par with Kardashian in any way.

Instead, she’s basically acting as a subservient to her ex-BFF in a new ad campaign, going as far as to channel Kim in a new shoot for Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 6 line.

“So much fun being a #KimClone in the new #YeezySeason6 campaign," wrote Paris as a caption to the following image.

Yes, a Kim Kardashian clone. 

We never thought we’d see the day Paris Hilton wrote such words.

Kardashian, for her part, is not rubbing in this victory.

Instead, she’s helping her vanquished former employer promote her husband’s clothing line, sharing one of Hilton’s snapshots on her Instagram page and writing as a caption of her own:

“#Yeezy #Season6 #ParisHilton #ForeverTheOG."

That’s a fair assessment.

Hilton really is the OG of untalented rich people posing nearly naked and somehow becoming very famous as a result.

After years of seemingly not speaking to each other, the ice between Kim and Paris began to thaw last summer.

Hilton posted a throwback photo of herself and Kardashian online in July, taking many Internet users by surprise at the time.

It doesn’t appear as if the ex-pals hang out very often still, but they must have seen this as an opportunity to make some money together once again.

And Paris must have seen it as an opportunity to be known for something other than liking Donald Trump.

Among the other Yeezy Season 6 campaign models are many social media stars you may recognize, including Kylie Jenner’s best friends Jordyn Woods and Anastasia Karanikolaou.

Will they also channel Kim in upcoming campaigns?

Or Kylie?

Or some other member of this famous family?

Meanwhile, in case you forgot, here’s a look back at Kim and Paris’ friendship. We weren’t kidding! They truly were like two annoying peas in a skin tight pod…
