Ok, Paris Hilton, we're paying attention now. On Thursday, Oct. 31, the 32-year-old went through a slew of Halloween costumes—including a mermaid, a fairy, a bride (!) and a gladiator—posting photos of each look across the social media sphere. (As in, multiple pics to Twitter, Instagram and Pheed from mutliple angles. Facebook, Vine and Keek must feel neglected!) Of course, Ms. Hilton didn't celebrate Halloween for just one day. Last Friday, Oct. 25, she was Paris Barbie. The following night at the Playboy Mansion's Halloween Party, she wore a teddy bear onesie à la Miley Cyrus at the 2013 MTV VMAs. By Wednesday, Oct. 30, the former reality star had moved on to a lush leopard »
Actually, some other things happen: plastic giraffes swim around, and male models with Super Soakers dance around behind Paris, and then there's a trip to the desert. A fake Transformer-y (or maybe Daft Punk–y?) robot shows up with a smoke machine, and Weezy found an empty stairwell to film his bit in. But yeah, we are focusing on the poolside scene, because: Why would you build a pool deck with gravel? Why are you rolling around in the gravel? That looks deeply uncomfortable. »

The Bling Ring, 2013.
Inspired by actual events, a group of fame-obsessed teenagers use the internet to track celebrities' whereabouts in order to rob their homes.
After Sofia Coppola justly earned plaudits for The Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation, a lot of good will remained for the less successful Marie Antoinette and, despite garnering the coveted Golden Lion in Venice, for the frankly mediocre and at times racist Somewhere. That good will may have come to an end.
The Bling Ring tells the true and sorry tale of a group of Hollywood teens eager to purloin the riches of the rich in order to live the Us dream. It all starts with young Mark (Israel Broussard) attending a high school for drop outs, where he is befriended by the »

Hi, my name is Paris and I'm a two-time victim of ... Swatting. Welcome Paris. TMZ has learned Paris Hilton re-joined the celeb swatting club when someone called 911 pretending to be her, and told cops she was trapped in her bedroom with a gun to her head. Multiple police cars rushed to Paris' L.A. mansion to search for intruders after the call came in last weekend -- but all they found were Paris' pooches chillin' by themselves. »

Nicole Kidman is here in Cannes, so is Ang Lee, and Audrey Tautou, and a second-generation Jagger, and Justin Timberlake, and Cindy Crawford, and Cheryl Cole, and Pelé, and all of them have been rained on, stubbornly, for days. Rain at Cannes used to be rare, regulars say. Russell Crowe has an anecdote about sitting in a screening wearing sodden zip-ups back in 1991, and Bruce Willis got splashed by a freak wave in 2006 – but for a couple of decades straight, at least, this festival was a dry deal, screenings and parties staged outdoors, everyone "cooked to a turn" (as F Scott Fitzgerald described the local way of sunbathing). Then last year the roof of the Soixantième theatre blew off. »

"I was really emotional watching it. During some parts of it, I literally had tears in my eyes and I wanted to cry. I knew what happened with the burglaries, but I had never actually seen it — so watching it happen, I was like, 'Oh my God, this really happened to me. These kids were really in my house and did this to me.' It's so violating. It just made me really angry and upset, and when I see these kids, I want to, like, slap them."--Paris Hilton shares her very emotional tale of watching Emma Watson steal her belongings in a film.No, but it makes sense that Paris would feel upset from watching the movie: Paris was a victim, after all, and they actually filmed a scene in her real house. But the rest of the interview is all about how Paris designed her house all by herself, »

Film critics may have wept over her performance in "House of Wax," but Paris Hilton's tears at the Cannes Film Festival came courtesy of Sofia Coppola. The 32 year-old heiress/model/reality TV star/singer/actress/Kim-Kardashian-before-Kim-Kardashian watched a screening of "The Bling Ring," Coppola's true-life tale about the teenaged burglars whose crime spree included a break-in at Hilton's house. She provided her real home as a location for the movie and cameos in it, as well.
"I was really emotional watching it," Hilton told a reporter for Vulture at the after-party. "I literally had tears in my eyes and I wanted to cry. I knew what happened with the burglaries, but I had never actually seen it — so watching it happen, I was like, 'Oh my God, this really happened to me. These kids were really in my house and did this to me.' It's so violating. It »

Reality stars Kim Kardashian and Lauren Conrad have become Hollywood film muses. "Harry Potter" star Emma Watson was in Cannes promoting her new film, Sophia Coppola's "The Bling Ring." The film is based on actual events surrounding a gang of kids Aka The Bling Ring, who looted the houses of young Hollywood for about $3 million in total booty in 2009-20010, including Paris Hilton, Rachel Bilson, Megan Fox, Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom. "I watched a lot of 'Keeping up With the Kardashians' and 'The Hills,' and I tried to understand the »

The Sofia Coppola movie is based on the true story of a group of teenagers who carried out a series of high-profile celebrity burglaries in 2008 and 2009.
Hilton - who was one of the victims of the robberies, as well as Lindsay Lohan and Orlando Bloom - made a cameo in the film and also allowed the burglary scenes to be filmed in her house, but said that seeing a reconstruction of the crimes upset her.
She told Vulture: "During some parts of it, I literally had tears in my eyes and I wanted to cry. I knew what happened with the burglaries, but I had never actually seen it.
"So watching it happen, I was like, 'Oh my God, this really happened to me. These kids »
The annual Cannes Film Festival is a celebration of prestigious productions, veteran talent and, uh, shameless liplocking. That is, according to Paris Hilton and River Viiperi last night. The two lovebirds were spotted sharing an intimate smooch while partying at the Gotha Club during The 66th Annual Cannes Film Festival. The 32-year-old and her 21-year-old boyfriend apparently did not care about onlookers, as they boldly indulged in full-on Pda amid a crowd of people. Paris attended this year's Cannes festival for the screening of Bling Ring, in which a scene was shot in her Hollywood home. But lip service aside, Paris looked really pretty in her red satin dress!

Paris Hilton cried while watching The Bling Ring during its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival on Thursday. Seriously. The heiress, whose home was among the many celebrity pads burglarized by the teens in real life, told New York magazine at the screening's after-party, I was really emotional watching it. During some parts of it, I literally had tears in my eyes and I wanted to cry." »

Welcome to the first podcast from the 2013 Cannes Film Festival where my guests are Emma and Aurellien from CinemaTeaser.com, Kevin Jagernauth from The Playlist and Mexican reviewer Silvestre Lopez Portillo joins us for the first of two parts to discuss Heli, which was recorded inside the Palais Theatre. The second part was recorded at a cafe outdoors, which ended up being a big mistake as we caught the first windy moments of a storm that was rolling in off the water, resulting in a lot of noise from the wind. If the second part is tolerable, you'll hear us discuss Jeune et Jolie, Fruitvale Station, The Bling Ring, The Past and The Congress. What I hoped to deliver with these was to give you a taste of some of the random conversations we tend to have after seeing the movies as we work out our own thoughts and take in the thoughts of others. »

Sofia Coppola landed one unlikely cameo for her fact-based crime caper The Bling Ring, which premiered yesterday at Cannes: Paris Hilton, whose mansion was repeatedly burglarized by the titular teenage thieves nearly five years ago. The heiress appears for a quick moment in a nightclub scene, but more significantly, she lent Coppola her actual house to film in for two weeks so that the director could re-create the burglaries onscreen. "I was really emotional watching it," Hilton confessed to me last night at the movie's hot-ticket Nikki Beach after-party. "During some parts of it, I literally had tears in my eyes and I wanted to cry. I knew what happened with the burglaries, but I had never actually seen it — so watching it happen, I was like, 'Oh my God, this really happened to me. These kids were really in my house and did this to me.' It's so »

More than $1 million (£650,000) worth of jewellery was stolen at the Cannes Film Festival yesterday (May 16).
An employee for Swiss luxury watchmakers and jewellers Chopard reportedly had the items taken when their safe in the Novotel Hotel was raided.
Chopard has been one of Cannes's official sponsors for 16 years and is also responsible for the design of the Palme d'Or, the prestigious award given out to the best feature film screening in competition at the festival.
The jewels were intended to be loaned out to celebrities walking the red carpet in the South of France. Julianne Moore, Cindy Crawford and Cara Delevingne have all worn Chopard at the festival this week.
The heist occurred on the same day as the world premiere screening of Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, a film about high-schoolers who raided celebrity homes (including Paris Hilton's) while they were out attending showbiz events.

Well, Sofia Coppola can rest easy: Paris Hilton loved "The Bling Ring." And maybe now Cannes' Un Certain Regard section can go back to showcasing art movies rather than playing host to platinum heiresses. Thursday night's premiere provided an unusual shot of glitz for Un Certain Regard, which typically takes a back seat to the main competition and the out-of-competition star vehicles. But the second day of Cannes was a day when the main competition showcased Francois Ozon's enigmatic "Jeune & Jolie" and Amat Escalante's brutal "Heli," giving Ucr an opening to take »

Catch the third poster for Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring, starring Emma Watson, Leslie Mann and Taissa Farmiga. In the fame-obsessed world of Los Angeles, a group of teenagers take us on a thrilling and disturbing crime-spree in the Hollywood hills. Based on true events, the group, who were fixated on the glamorous life, tracked their celebrity targets online, and stole more than 3 million in luxury goods from their homes. Their victims included Paris Hilton, Orlando Bloom, and Rachel Bilson, and the gang became known in the media as “The Bling Ring.” In The Bling Ring, Oscar Winning filmmaker Coppola takes us inside the world of these teens, where their youthful naivete and excitement is amplified by today’s culture of celebrity and luxury brand obsession. The members of the Bling Ring introduce us to temptations that any teenager would find hard to resist. And what starts out as »
★★☆☆☆ Opening the Un Certain Regard section of the 66th Cannes Film Festival comes Sofia Coppola's The Bling Ring (2013), a teen crime movie/wannabe satire based on the true story of a gang of over-privileged kids (with serious entitlement issues) who burgled a succession of Hollywood celebrity abodes several years back. Marc (Israel Broussard) is the new kid at school befriended by über-popular Rebecca (Katie Chang), who has a distinct taste for taking stuff that doesn't belong to her. The pair graduate from boosting the odd misplaced handbag to stealing cars and cleaning out the homes of A-listers when they're off partying.
Over time, Mark and Rebecca assemble a rag-tag group of fashionista 'gangstas', including Nicki (British actress Emma Watson), Chloe (Claire Julien) and Sam (Taissa Farmiga); a pseudo family home-schooled on pseudo philosophy leached from the banal The Secret. Coppola - who won the Golden Lion at Venice a »

The biggest puzzlement of these early days of the festival comes from Sofia Coppola, one of my favorite working directors. Until now, I have loved every one of Coppola's movies: I love her sure and delicate touch, and she's better than any other contemporary filmmaker at capturing the greatness of small moments. The Bling Ring is the first of her pictures that I actively dislike—I sense no mystery, no depth there. Perhaps this just isn't the right material for Coppola. Based on real events, The Bling Ring follows a bunch of acquisitive, precocious kids who learn they can break into celebrities' houses, steal their stuff, and get away with it. In the movie, as in real life, these scofflaws broke into Paris Hilton's home some half a dozen times. (Hilton »

Daniel Kasman: The Bling Ring comes on top of a consecutive series of hyper-stylized and seemingly sympathetic portraits of American consumer culture, aspirations and dreams, Harmony Korine's Spring Breakers and Michael Bay's Pain & Gain. Do you see this film as connected to those?
Adam Cook: Absolutely. Clearly, it's the tamest of the three in terms of its approach but nevertheless is concerned with the same set of (specifically American?) themes of image-obsessed lifestyles. I feel as though each of them compliments each other well as their specific interests diverge but collectively illuminate different takes on the tragic pursuit of the American dream—though it's necessary to point out Pain & Gain is »
In 20 years or so -- after we sift through the rubble of three decades of self-help, 15 minutes of free-for-all fame, the Kim Kardashian, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan monuments to vapid designer-fueled high-living, and camera close-ups to catch it all -- we might finally see what the milking of our narcissistic tendencies on social networks has done to our priorities. It's never been defined as brilliantly as Sofia Coppola does in "The Bling Ring," which opened the Un Certain Regard section at Cannes on Thursday. While some will always maintain »
