The Bling Ring Costume Designer on Re-creating Celeb Closets

Sofia Coppola’s new movie, The Bling Ring, is all about swag. The film (opening nationwide June 21 and in New York and L.A. on June 14) follows five teenagers who “go shopping” in their favorite celebrity closets, without, of course, said celebrities knowing — or, in the case of Paris Hilton, even noticing. Based on Nancy Jo Sales’s Vanity Fair feature detailing the real-life Hollywood Hills burglaries, the film’s costume designer Stacey Battat faced the challenge of re-creating the blingy, clubwear-heavy looks that could have been stolen from celebs like Audrina Patridge, Miranda Kerr, and Rachel Bilson. Watch the video to hear how Battat re-created Paris Hilton’s closet, took the Hermione Granger out of Emma Watson, and chose all those Louboutins.
