EXTENSIONS AND ALL Hilton's mug shot

Heiress Paris Hilton checked into the gray bar hotel in downtown L.A. at about 10:30 p.m. Sunday, trading the black, strapless dress she wore for a surprise red carpet stroll at the MTV Movie Awards for an orange prison jumpsuit. She was also given cereal, bread, and juice.

Though the judge who sentenced her to 23 days for driving on a suspended license offered her no alternatives, Hilton told reporters she chose to do time in the county clink rather than go to a "pay jail" (Zsa Zsa Gabor, for example, paid $85 to stay at El Segundo jail rather than the county joint). "I declined because I feel like the media portrays me in a way that I'm not and that's why I wanted to go to county, to show that I can do it and I'm going to be treated like everyone else. I'm going to do the time, I'm going to do it the right way."

She's to be isolated from the general population, have a cell to herself, and get an hour a day to talk on the phone or get some fresh air.
