The Bling Ring

Bling Ring Stills

The Bling Ring is another stylishly shot flick from Sofia Coppola, but, although it was glossier than Paris Hilton’s lips, I wouldn’t rush to see it again. Based on the real life story of Hollywood’s teen burglars, The Bling Ring follows new boy Marc (Israel Broussard) as his friendship with celebrity-obsessed Rebecca (Katie Chang) leads him into a wild life of break-ins, drugs, clubbing, and designer sunglasses. Unfortunately, once you get the initial exciting feeling that you’re raiding a superstar’s closet, the film has little more to give. Although we get a glimpse at the main characters’ motivation, a little more backstory may have made it easier to empathise with them. Emma Watson is probably the highlight of this film, delivering some wonderfully un-Hermione lines, and looking like you’ve never seen her before.

Based around the glamorous belongings of the LA elite, this film was bound to have some pretty lust-worthy pieces – Paris Hilton’s shoe closet is just beyond ridiculous. Think big heels, big shades and little dresses. Here are my picks for achieving your own Hollywood Hills look, without doing time.

  • Luxurious accessories
  • Glamorous dresses

  1. I love your blog concept! Too fun! You hit the nail on the head with this review. I followed up the movie by watching all 8 episodes of Pretty Wild (the reality show about Alexis Neiers) and it was strangely more interesting. I love that bag, and it is so cheap! I will have to run to Forever 21 and pick it up!
