Paris Hilton whips up a storm in holy Mecca

By Catriona Davies and Latifa Azdi, for CNN

(CNN) - As an American socialite and hotel heiress, Paris Hilton has built up a global brand on her sexy image - and sometimes very few clothes.

But many believe she has gone a step too far in opening a store selling luxury items in the Muslim holy city of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.

Hilton's rise to worldwide fame was boosted in part by a homemade sex movie that went viral online in 2003, days before the debut of her reality TV series "The Simple Life."

This does not sit well with many in Mecca, which attracts three million Muslim pilgrims from around the world every year.

All Muslims who are able are expected to make the pilgrimage to Mecca at least once in their lifetime, and non-Muslims are not allowed to enter the city. Most Saudi women cover themselves fully with a black abaya.

    Something that most people don't know (although Paris' business managers undoubtably do) is that Saudi women wear very expensive, exotic underwear under those have head-to-toe black tents. Presumably their husbands buy them this, since they are forbidden to leave the house. Of course, they never bathe so the effect is somewhat blunted, but their husbands don't seem to care. The cost is no object, since Saudi's are paid generously for doing nothing. I'd say this is a pretty savvy business move.
