There’s nothing that says Christmas like a shrine to Paris Hilton.
Blown-up images of Hilton and strings of pink Christmas lights adorn the front lawn of a home in a middle-class neighborhood of this city, part of a head-turning holiday display that pays homage to the famed hotel heiress.
The over-the-top pictorial is the work of Joe Moretti, a 38-year-old designer who was arrested last year for trespassing on Martha Stewart’s property in Maine.
Passersby get an eyeful of Hilton sporting a tiny pink top hiding little of her chest, or wearing knee-high boots and a sultry pout or holding a finger to her lips. Even Hilton’s faithful Chihuahua, Tinkerbell, is celebrated in a colorful portrait.
“If it’s offending anyone, I apologize,” Moretti said in a telephone interview Thursday. “That’s not the intent. The intent is to be different and to be creative and let them see a little bit of Hollywood or New York – bring it to Cranston,” Moretti explained.
Um, how can a shrine to Paris Hilton not be offensive? Plus, how does one move on from Martha Stewart to Paris Hilton?
