    Over the course of a year, the members of the now infamous Bling Ring allegedly burglarized some of the biggest names in young Hollywood. Driven by celebrity worship, vanity, and the desire to look and dress like the rich and famous, these seven teenagers made headlines for using Google maps, Facebook, and TMZ to track the comings and goings of their targets. Many of the houses were unlocked. Alarms disabled. A "perfect" crime - celebrities already had so much, why shouldn't the Bling Ring take their share?

    It’s 19 September, 2010, and 21-year-old Rachel Lee has emerged from Los Angeles Superior Court, having just been sentenced to four years behind bars. A few months earlier, she had been running the Bling Ring: a gang of rich, beautiful, wild-living Valley teens who idolised celebrity, designer labels, and luxury brands, who, in 2009, became the most audacious thieves in recent Hollywood history. In a case that has shocked the nation, the seven school friends stole millions of dollars’ worth of clothing, jewellery, and possessions from the sprawling mansions of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom, among others.
