Paris is pretty in pink as stars bring on the bling

It's almost inevitable that queen of bling Paris Hilton would be on the guest list for the premiere of The Bling Ring – particularly when she is partly the inspiration behind the film.

And true to form, the Hollywood socialite and reality TV star looked pretty in pink as she arrived on the red carpet in Los Angeles.

The Sofia Coppola-directed biopic brings to life the true story of a group of young Hollywood friends who robbed various celebrities' homes back in 2008 – stealing from Hilton, Orlando Bloom, Audrina Patridge, Lindsay Lohan, Rachel Bilson, Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox.

They used social media to track the whereabouts of their rich and famous targets before staging the break-ins.

And Hilton even lent her real Beverly Hills home – the very one that was robbed of $2m (€1.53m) worth of possessions and family heirlooms – as a set.

It stars Emma Watson, and the 23-year-old English actress was joined on the red carpet by co-stars. She was joined on the red carpet by Claire Julien, Georgia Rock, Katie Chang, Gavin Rossdale and Taissa Farmiga.
