Psst....The Bling Ring, Sofia Coppola's newest flick about a group of teenage girls who rob from the rich and famous and give to...themselves, isn't just about the City of Angels.
Well, okay. It is. But its stars didn't just hail from LA or across the pond (thank you, Emma Watson.) Katie Chang, who plays Rebecca, actually grew up in Winnetka. If that weren't enough incentive to go see the movie, consider that it's also full of fashion. The movie is actually based on a true story about a group of girls who raided the homes, closets, and, subsequently, lives of the likes of Paris Hilton. It brings a whole new meaning to the term "fashion crime." ]own.
It's in theatres tomorrow, and you can shop looks from the film here while you prepare for this fur-filled, label-saturated romp that just may make a star out of one of our own.
