Are we getting déjà vu?
Hilton seems super pleased with her new photo shoot for Paper magazine, and why wouldn’t she be? She looks crazy hot in the racy new pics. Plus, she’s one of only four celebs to be featured in the magazine’s Fandemonium series, and one of those is Marc Jacobs’ dog. That’s some good company.

But wait. Is it just us, or does one of these photos look a little familiar?

Where have we seen this look before? Oh. Right.
It has been exactly a year since Kim Kardashian's Break The Internet Paper cover. Never forget. pic.twitter.com/iBHMW8jwWr

Almost a year to the day after Kardashian’s famed attempt to “break the Internet” with her derriere, here we have Hilton in an almost identical pose. Coincidence? Maybe. But maybe not.
It’s no secret that Kardashian and Hilton, a pair of ex-best friends, have had a little bit of a feud going on and off over the years.
Remember when Hilton cattily told a radio show host, “I would not want [Kim’s butt] — it’s gross! It reminds me of cottage cheese inside a big trash bag.”
And then there was the time that Hilton performed at a Las Vegas nightclub, only to be followed by Kardashian getting onstage and telling the crowd, “Now let’s hear some real music.”
Is Hilton’s Paper mag cover just a cleverly disguised jab at Kardashian? Is she sending her a not-so-subtle “anything you can do, I can do better” sort of message?
It doesn’t seem like a far-fetched theory.
