Is widely considered as one of Hollywood fashion icons, Paris Hilton turns her fashion sense into life by dressing up dolls, made based on her by Germany's Simba Toys.

The German company has confirmed it is creating toy dolls based on Paris with she herself helps styling the products. The new dolls do not look like Paris, but they reflect her dress sense. The real Paris chose three glitzy outfits, including silver streaked hair, jewelry and MP3 player, for the dolls: Party, Glam Summer and Shopping.

Simba Toys has presented the new doll collection at Germany's Nuremberg Toy Fair on Wednesday, February 6. The Paris dolls, meanwhile, will be sold in Europe later this year together with Simba's Steffi Love doll, which is the competition to U.S. Barbie.

Juergen Deschner, Simba's director, said the new products will be sold at a starting price of 8.40 euros ($12.40).

To mark the launching of Paris dolls, Simba which has signed up for an initial two-years license with the hotel heiress and socialite, has prepared a flesh-and-blood Paris look-alike to smile at the visitors on its stand at the Nuremberg Toy Fair from February 7 to February 12.

In other Paris news, she's said to have been planning a huge burlesque show with The Pussycat Dolls in Vegas and an 80's-theme party in L.A. to celebrate her upcoming 27th birthday. "I'm going to perform with the Pussycat Dolls. I'm going to go to Pure and LAX," so Paris said about the party she planned to hold when she turns 27 on February 17.
