is having a £300,000 diamond-encrusted dashboard
made for her pink Bentley.
The hotel heiress, 27, will have it flown out from the firm’s British HQ in Crewe to be fitted to her £140,000 Continental GT in Los Angeles.
Cutting a dash … Paris at the wheel of her car
But she may have to wait — the Cheshire plant is halting production until early May due to the economic downturn.
A Bentley source said last night: I guess she’s not hit too badly by the recession.
Paris got one of her guys to phone Bentley in Crewe, where the vehicle was made, to ask if it would be possible to give it a little more sparkle.
When the man said she wanted to stud the dashboard with a couple of hundred grand’s worth of diamonds, we were stunned.
We’re used to dealing with the stars so we expect the odd extravagance, but this is something else.
Paris bought the Bentley in December as a Christmas present to herself.
She had it sprayed pink and the Bentley badge replaced with her own initials. The upholstery, grille and hubcaps are also pink and the car has a tint on the windows to prevent photographs being taken of her inside.
I’ve just always wanted a pink car.

I think it just comes from being a fan of Barbie for so long
