"Style is everything" may well be the motto of the heroines of Sofia Coppola's latest The Bling Ring, as this new poster—courtesy of Perez Hilton—is all about the importance of accessories. The fierce fashionistas at the center of this L.A. story will do anything to get the bling worthy of the rich and famous…even if that means stealing it from the rich and famous.
Based on the true exploits of the real-life Bling Ring (also known as the Hollywood Hills Burglar Bunch, but that's way less chic), this cutting crime drama stars Emma Watson, Georgia Rock, Israel Broussard, Katie Chang, and Claire Pfister. You can see the crew in full costume in the recently released first look.
Among the reported victims of the Bling Ring's burglaries were Audrina Patridge, Rachel Bilson, Orlando Bloom, Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan, and Paris Hilton, who makes a kitschy cameo in the feature's first teaser.
A big part of this movie's allure is the vicarious fun of following these young and reckless thieves on their enviable exploits as they traipse into the luxurious homes of young Hollywood stars, subjecting these exclusive locales their personal shopping (crime) spree. But that's not all Bling Ring's got going for it. Additionally intriguing is that this drama seems a change-up from Coppola's standard style, which is less flashy and more poetic. Then of course you have the allure of seeing Harry Potter's Hermione Granger go bad girl from her super high heels to her mastermind shades. In short, lots of risks we can't wait to see.
The Bling Ring will open in limited release on June 14th.
