Exiting a car with legs akimbo is a sure way for rising female stars to get noticed - especially if they 'accidentally' forgot to put on their underwear.
But Paris Hilton appears to have learned her lesson, exiting her car in an elegant and ladylike fashion to attend her mother's birthday celebrations.
The blonde socialite headed to Boa Steakhouse in Beverly Hills, climbing out of her red Ferrari carefully, with her long pins firmly closed together.
It's clear to see where Paris gets her show-off skills from, with mum Kathy just as enamoured with the camera lens as her daughter.
The ladies hugged and kissed during their public display of affection, obviously aware of the commotion and striking a pose with their best side.
Paris showed off her tiny physique in a simple fitted sheath dress with an embellished neckline and paired it with her suspender tights - the tops of which just peeped out from the bottom of her dress.
The heiress tottered along in black patent Christian Louboutin heels and carried a matching clutch bag.
