Socialite teams knickers with a leather jacket

Paris Hilton has stripped off for the front cover of German magazine Maxim.

The socialite poses in a skimpy pair of knickers and a leather jacket as she shows off her perfectly toned stomach.

But despite having a reputation as a privileged airhead, Paris is desperate to be taken seriously.

‘It makes me angry because people don’t know the real me,’ she tells The Sun.

‘I’m always working or promoting something.’

Paris, 26, is reportedly dating Good Charlotte guitarist Benji Madden, 27.
