Talking to PopSugar, 24-year-old Paris opened up about her childhood after she was announced as the new face of KVD Beauty.

Discussing her upbringing in the entertainment world, she revealed that it gave her a complicated relationship with beauty: “It wasn't until the last couple of years that I've started feeling really good about myself and my body.”

“Those moments of self-love aren't 24/7, but the bad moments are fewer and further between.”

She added that her dad Michael’s philosophy helped her keep an open mind as she embarked on a career as a model.

“All of the experiences that I’ve had in the last few years have gotten me to that point,” she said.

“I appreciate the artistry behind it.”
