If you thought the NFT hype was starting to lose steam, think again. Paris Hilton's NFT debut couldn't have gone smoother after her "Planet Paris" collection hauled in a whopping nine-figure bid on the marquee offering. 

Collaborating with visual artist Blake Kathryn, Hilton brought three pieces to market, each soundtracked by dreamy, uplifting EDM soundscapes and rooted in a pink utopian dreamland.

Hilton explained that the theme of the drop is all about female energy and empowerment, and she praised Blake for immediately understanding her vision for the project. "Blake instantly understood my aesthetic and it was everything that I loved," Hilton said. "Feminine, ethereal, soft, yet powerful, and beautiful."
