Paris Puts On A Happy Face (And A Hot Dress), Says Buh-Bye To Breakup Blues!

Regardless of what's going on in her life, Paris Hilton isn't one to mope. So after breaking the news about her split from Benji Madden, we figured it was only a matter of time before she was back to her old smiling/sulk-free self again. And sure enough, after just a few days of laying low, Paris spent her first weekend post-breakup celebrating her newfound singledom -- by strapping on her most favorite skintight numbers and heading off to the hottest parties in town.

The BFF star rang in the new Pussycat Dolls Lounge in a shiny, PCD-inspired dress (shown above), then laughed it up with T-Pain (and dazzled at the American Music Awards red carpet). Check out these decidedly non-Debbie Downer shots after the jump!

Way to go, Paris! After all, looking drop-dead gorgeous on national TV is a much better way of saying "I'm totally over you, Benji!" than locking yourself in your apartment and watching a Lifetime movie marathon while drowning your sorrows in chocolate ice cream.

(That said, if you're gonna go for Option B, we'd suggest Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie and turning off your cell phone. Otherwise, you're headed for Generic Brain Freeze and a highly regrettable string of psycho ex-girlfriend/"WHY DON'T U STILL WANT ME???" texts).
