She’s usually a model of poise as she poses and pouts for the paparazzi.
However Paris Hilton has shown she can by as clumsy as the rest of us, even if she had swapped her trademark vertiginous heels for a pair of trainers - not footwear usually associated with danger.
The socialite was attempting a quick exit from a music store in Prague, the Czech Republic with boyfriend Benji Madden, when she tripped over a step, fell face down and banged her chin on the ground.
To add to her distress, Madden failed to play the doting beau and help Hilton to her feet and instead stepped over the hurt heiress.
However, in a move which shows chivalry isn’t completely dead, Madden, on realising the severity of Hilton’s fall, turned back round and helped her up.
But the damage was done and Hilton was overheard telling Madden: “Prague…never again.”
Up until now, Hilton has been enjoying her globe-trotting holiday which has included stop-overs in London, Cape Town, Berlin and attending the Miss Turkey 2008 beauty contest in Istanbul.
Perhaps her latest trip, the one on the ground, was down to her huge U.S. size 11 feet.
The socialite recently complained: “Yeah, it sucks, because I see all these super cute shoes in the stores: Guccis, YSLs, Manolos. And when they bring them out in my size, they look like clown shoes.”
