When it comes to cinema, director Sofia Coppola is the doyenne of disaffected youth--The Virgin Suicides, Marie Antoinette, and Lost in Translation--so it only seems natural her next project centers around the modern-day phenomenon of celebrity-worshipping Los Angeles teens in The Bling Ring. Of course, these anti-heroines go a bit further than merely pouting; they crave the perks of fame so much, they burglarize the homes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, and Rachel Bilson, plus others. And while grittier than Coppola’s previous films, The Bling Ring--which is based on actual events and Nancy Jo Sales’ Vanity Fair article--is nonetheless a showcase for noteworthy fashion. Costume designer Stacey Battat (who was also responsible for the wardrobe in Coppola’s last film, Somewhere) filled the movie with lots of mid-2000s style moments (think: Juicy Couture tracksuits, Birkin bags, and oversized sunglasses). We spoke with Battat about the film’s fashion and chose pieces to help you channel your favorite character. Keep reading to shop our Inspired By picks!
