What's going on? Paris Hilton looked unusually curvy when she arrived to join Mario Lopez on stage for Extra at The Grove in LA yesterday
Paris Hilton is known around the world for her enviable svelte frame.
So it was a surprise when she was seen in LA yesterday showing off a curvier figure in a fitted bright pink dress.
Paris was arriving to join Mario Lopez on stage for celebrity entertainment show Extra at shopping mall The Grove in Los Angeles.
That's not hot: While Paris's legs were still looking slim, her bold outfit betrayed an unflattering bump instead of her usually flat stomach
Paris flaunted her toned legs and arms, but the tight dress betrayed a bulge in place of her normally flat stomach.
She teamed her dress with an equally eye catching necklace, with high patent black heels and sunglasses and let her trademark blonde hair fall loose over her shoulders, maintaining her 'Barbie' look.
It is possible that a more relaxed attitude to her diet has led to the change in the star's figure.
Famous friends: Paris continued posing as she chatted to Extra presenter Mario Lopez
Paris has been dating Hangover Part II director Todd Phillips, who she was spotted dining with at Hollywood's Madeo restaurant last night.
Paris dispelled the myth that LA starlets don't touch carbohydrates as she tucked in to lasagne, while Todd ordered the ravioli.
Paris was probably in need of a little relaxation following an alarming break in to her Malibu beach house over the Fourth of July weekend.
She had previously filed a restraining order against the intruder, who was luckily spotted by nearby paparazzi as he tried to enter the building.
Paris said she was thankful that the paparazzi had been there, even though she sometimes finds them 'annoying'.
Looking all white: Paris was also seen shopping in Malibu earlier this week wearing a much more white dress
Always comfortable in front of a camera, Paris recently took part in an edgy photo shoot for V magazine looking much thinner than the paparazzi snaps from The Grove yesterday.
Paris wore heavy make-up and a risqué S&M wardrobe for the V shoot, and was barely recognisable in some of the photos.
Despite being a far cry from her usual look, Paris's slender body was in far greater evidence that it was yesterday, as she bared a perfectly toned stomach under a large Gothic-style coat.
