The Bling Ring is Sophia Coppola’s new buzz movie; starring Emma Watson and based on the real life events written about in a Vanity Fair article it is set in LA as a gang of celeb-crazed kids break into the homes of their favourite stars and nick whatever takes their fancy. They want the trappings of privilege: Chanel bags from Paris Hilton’s, Rolex watches from Megan Fox, Louis Vuitton suitcases full of clobber from Audrina Partridge; all their favourite style stars are targeted. Coppola’s work is an ode to superficiality and the Hollywood street style of over-sized sunnies paired with Starbucks to go. It’s a paean to the girls who know the form on each Lindsay Lohan court appearance pap shot, who get off on clocking Kirsten Dunst in the club. The film’s costume designer Stacey Battat has got that Hollywood style moment down pat. Birkin Bag me up, baby.
