Eleven years ago, Barack Obama was running for President of The United States, the seventh and final Harry Potter book was finally published, and two blondes were absolutely living their best lives, running amok whichever city they seemed to find themselves in on any given night. Undeniably, the year 2007 belongs to pop princess Britney Spears and getting-paid-to-party girl Paris Hilton, shamelessly throwing themselves into the flashing lights and appearing daily on the cover of tabloids and all over the inter-webs on gossip websites.

Lucky for the masses, the paparazzi keenly and swiftly documented every move these two ladies made, invading their space and taking their jobs as pop culture photogs more seriously than ever. Whether it was a party at a mansion in Beverly Hills, a night out on the town with third-wheel Lindsay Lohan, or an industry soirée, when Paris and Britney linked arms, hell was guaranteed to be raised and garbage newsstands would be gifted with absolute pure gold.

Diving into the k-hole that is the internet, I have crafted a brief visual timeline of these two early 2000s it-girls making history throughout the year no one can, nor ever will forget.
