The Bling Ring: How a Gang of Fame-Obsessed Teens Ripped Off Hollywood and Shocked the World by Nancy Jo SalesIn time for the 2013 film The Bling Ring directed by Sofia Coppola and starring Emma Watson: an in-depth exposé of the exploits of the infamous Hollywood Bling Ring-a band of beautiful, privileged teenagers who were caught breaking into celebrity mansions and stealing millions of dollars worth of valuables
Meet the Bling Ring: six club-hopping LA teenagers accused of stealing more than $3 million in clothing and jewelry from the likes of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Orlando Bloom, Rachel Bilson and other young members of the Hollywood elite-allegedly the most audacious burglary gang in recent history.
Driven by celebrity worship, vanity, and the desire to look and dress like the rich and famous, the Bling Ring made headlines in 2009 for using readily available sources-like Google maps, Facebook and TMZ, to track the comings and goings of their targets. Seven teens were arrested for the crimes, and instantly became tabloid fodder. The world asked-how did the American obsession with celebrity get so out of hand? And why did a band of ostensibly privileged LA teens take such a risk?
Vanity Fair reporter Nancy Jo Sales found the answer: they did it because they could. And because it was just that easy.
Author of the acclaimed Vanity Fair story on the Bling Ring The Suspect Wore Louboutins, Sales gained unprecedented access to the Hollywood thieves, and in the process uncovered a dark world of teenage arrogance, greed, obsession, and delusion. Now, for the first time in a full book length work, Sales details the Bling Ring crimes up close and in depth, and reveals the key players stories in a shocking look at the seedy world of the real young Hollywood.

The Bling Ring criminals now may be a bit older and a bit wiser, but they'll always have quite the story to tell. Neiers was a star herself; she and her family appeared on the E!
The real life Nicki, Alexis Neiers, has described the film as "trashy and inaccurate. I can only hope that this movie does not just tell the story of Los Angeles teens robbing the homes of celebrities, because that, I don't believe, would have much impact on people, as the real cultural obsession with what the Bling Ring would. In my opinion, as a society, we are so focused on which celebrity is doing what, and we have gotten distracted. It has led to teens literally killing themselves, and to a complete erosion of privacy and boundaries.
