Though you might wonder where she finds the time between fashion-show visits, Sofia Coppola is a fairly prolific filmmaker. Her latest even combines her interest in both. The Bling Ring, based on Nancy Jo Sales’ 2010 Vanity Fair story about L.A. teens heisting designer duds from the homes of their celebrity neighbors, stars Emma Watson in a Hermione-who? performance as a bling ringleader with expensive taste.
