When it was first announced that Sofia Coppola would be directing The Bling Ring, which comes out tonight in NYC (the rest of the country will have to wait a week), I nearly jumped for joy. It's been a couple years since the original story of Alexis Neiers and her crew of celeb-robbing buddies came into the public eye, so naturally I went back and read just about every news article and story on the case I could find. I refreshed my memory by watching old YouTube clips of the short lived show Pretty Wild, which was based on Neiers' life in LA, reread the ever-so-popular Vanity Fair article by Nancy Jo Sales, and eventually fell into reading the book (which I'm currently finishing at the moment). It's safe to say my parents, friends, boyfriend and co-workers are all eager for the movie to come out just so I can stop talking about it.
However, for as much as I've read on the subject, it still boggles my mind how a group of high schoolers were able to pull off some of the biggest heists in Hollywood history. They managed to break in and steal millions of dollars worth of clothing, bags and shoes from their favorite celebrity stars, eluding capture for months. With all that in mind, we couldn't help but ask ourselves: if we could raid any celebrity's closet whose would be it? After much deliberation, we've come up with ten favorites, but whose do you wish you could raid?
Slide 1 / 11
My personal girl crush, Olivia Palermo, might take the cake for me on this one. She's always impeccably dressed and carrying an amazing array of handbags, now if only we could take her boyfriend too. Want to see more? Check out our roundup of her bag collection, too.
Slide 2 / 11
With their boho chic style and unlimited access to The Row accessories, the Olsen Twins were an easy choice for us. They're also one of our favorite "Many Bags" features ever.
Slide 3 / 11
The stunningly beautiful and ever-so-chic Diane Kruger is always at the top of our best dressed list. What's the first thing we'd take? Probably the Prada dress she wore to this year's Met Gala. Scope out all her bags here.
Slide 4 / 11
As one of the chicest moms in Hollywood, Jessica Alba makes the list for her casual, sophisticated looks wherever she goes. Yep - we've got a closer look at her handbag choices, too.
Slide 5 / 11
Between the hats, the sunglasses and the oversized handbags, we're not sure where we would even start in Rachel Zoe's closet, but we're sure we'd spend hours just sifting through her unique vintage finds. See all the goodies right over here.
Slide 6 / 11
Party girl Sienna Miller has always had an eye for style, and there's no doubt she's got plenty of glitz and glamour hanging up in her closet. She picks some pretty great bags, too.
Slide 7 / 11
Kate Bosworth's closet would be perfect to raid right before heading out to Coachella Music Festival with her peasant tops and denim cutoffs. We'd steal a couple of her Proenza Schouler bags, too.
Slide 8 / 11
There would be no shortage of fur in this supermodel's closet. Kate Moss would be sure to have some of the best clothes out there, with plenty of one-of-kind pieces designed just for her. The bags given to her by her designer friends are also worth rifling through.
Slide 9 / 11
We have a feeling we'd find plenty of floral maxis and printed scarves in Nicole Richie's closet. Do you think she still has her overalls from The Simple Life? Check out her Balenciaga collection and more in "The Many Bags of Nicole Richie."
Slide 10 / 11
Blake Lively is at the top of our list with her glamorous, effortless looks. She may have some height on us, but don't worry, we can hem it all. Check out her handbags, both on the Gossip Girl set and off.
Slide 11 / 11
And of course, we had to throw in one of our favorite reality TV families, The Kardashians. With so many girls, there's bound to be plenty of great finds.
