  • 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!

    Nicki is as vapid as she is beautiful, the kind of girl to do something simply because it was considered cool. Battat describes her wardrobe as an homage to “the most generic girl” at the time, and “very Paris Hilton-y." In other words: the epitome of the era’s partying and excesses. “She’s what we think of as ‘LA’.”

    For ringleader Rebecca, breaking and entering into the celebrity world meant dressing the part too. With an affinity for more elegant pieces--oversized sunnies and cape coats--she’s definitely the trendsetter of the group. “[Rebecca] would be the one to wear Valentino, whereas the other girls would choose Versace,” says Battat.

  • Elizabeth and James

    Francis Sunglasses ($185) in Shiny Black

  • Alexander Wang Lydia in Printed Black with Yellow Gold

    Every group of defiant teenagers needs the girl with the connections--enter Chloe. The raspy-voiced blonde upholds her Rebel Without A Cause status by sleeping with the film’s older, skeezy club promoter (played by Gavin Rossdale) and hitting the Sunset Strip in a tough-girl mix of crop tops, low-slung jeans, and leather jackets.

  • Nasty Gal

    Renegade Moto Jacket ($88)

  • Eddie Borgo

    Spike Bracelet ($473)

    Sam’s carefree and confident demeanor comes from a strong desire to be a part of the in-crowd. Though not a natural troublemaker, she easily plays the role of the bad girl in sultry body-con dresses and brightly colored jeans. “[Sam] is definitely the most fun and sexy,” says Battat.

  • Calvin Klein Jeans

    Colored Skinny Jeans ($70) in Pink

  • Helmut Lang

    Asymmetric Hem Dress ($295)

    At first glance your average shy teen, Marc uses his love of clothes to come out of the closet and express himself. (He arguably rocks a stiletto better than any of the other girls!) Described by Battat as the group’s “hipster,” Marc is rarely seen without the coolest pair of sneakers and a scarf to match.
