* AmbiguouslyGay: Marc; he's remarkably [[CampGay knowledgable about women's fashion]], refers to another (male) student as hot, and enjoys wearing Creator/ParisHilton's heels at home. He also never hits on any of the girls, and claims he loved Rebecca "like a sister". The man he was based on Nic Prugo is openly gay.

--> Nick Prugo: The character that Claire Julien plays, based on Courtney I believe -- Claire did an amazing job and she's way hotter than [Courtney is] in real life.

** The real man Marc is based on, Nick Prugo, is openly gay.
** At one point, when referring to Rebecca, Marc says "I loved her...almost like a sister". Him not hitting on any of the girls is evidence enough.

* ButNotTooBlack: Katie Chang has a quarter of Asian ancestry, in contrast to Rachel Lee who is half-Asian.



* HistoricalHeroUpgrade: Marc is shown to be the most moral of the thieves, but the film leaves out the fact that his real life counterpart stole money from his parents to feed his drug addiction.
* HistoricalVillainUpgrade: Nicki is portrayed as a vapid ditz who gleefully takes part in all the burglaries. Alexis Neiers claimed she was drunk the first time she went along with the others, not knowing what was going on. She later slammed the film for its inaccuracies, though of course the truth of her statements is up for debate.



* LighterAndSofter: Alexis Neiers's relationship with her mother was far rockier in real life that the movie depicts; she was kicked out of the house for doing drugs and had to stay in Nic Prugo's house. The film shows Nicki's mother as blissfully ignorant of her daughter's bad behaviour.



* {{Loveable Rogue}}s
* MsFanservice: Nicki. Especially given the fact she's played by Emma Watson, working against type. A very brief scene in which she dances in a sexy fashion in a nightclub and licks her lips, taken from the trailer, was extensively screen-capped and made into anti-gifs in the months prior to the film's release. (However, see the next item.)
** Pretty much every girl in the group counts since they all dress up provocatively and is shown either in their underwear or changing

* {{Loveable Rogue}}s
Rogue}}s: Marc probably fits this the most, since he just wants to hang out with the girls and views the burglaries as bonding activities.

* MundaneSolution: They manage to break into Paris Hilton's house by checking under her mat and finding the key there.



* RealityIsUnrealistic: Emma Watson's American accent was criticised by some. However it's a near spot-on imitation of Alexis Neiers's real voice, on whom her character is based.

to:

* RealityIsUnrealistic: RaceLift: One of the thieves was a Mexican immigrant called Diana Tamayo. Her counterpart in the film appears to be a white girl called Sam.

** Not only did Paris Hilton actually leave the key under her mat, she left the door unlocked as well!



* TheSmurfettePrinciple: Gender-flipped. Marc is only one of the three guys in the group who gets much substantial screen time.

* LethallyStupid: Sam cavalierly brandishes a loaded gun in Marc's face, clearly [[KickTheDog enjoying how just scared he becomes.]]

* DawsonCasting: Averted, with the exception of EmmaWatson, who is in her early 20s, the actors playing the other members of the Bling Ring are in their teens (and Katie Chang was only 16 when the movie was shot.)



* PlayingAgainstType: EmmaWatson as a vain, moronic sexpot (although up to this point is essentially [[Film/HarryPotter one role]]).
** Creator/SofiaCoppola ''doesn't'' go against type here, but rather just does the inverse of some of her other films. Whilst Film/MarieAntoinette cannot cope with the attention she receives, and [[Film/LostInTranslation Bob Harris]] cannot cope having lost people's attention; the teenagers (especially Nicki), desperately ''want'' the attention and fame of celebrity.
