Paris Hilton made a stop while in Ausitn for SXSW to visit and support a friend.

In an Instagram post, Hilton gushes about long-time Austinite and jewelry designer Kendra Scott. Hilton praised her friend's store, jewelry designs and "incredible brand" in the post. No word on whether she walked away with a pair of earrings for herself...

The former star of “The Simple Life” wasn’t in Austin for long. According to her most recent Instagram post, she’ll be on her way to play her music tonight in Cancun  — if she hasn’t left already.
