Paris Hilton Gets Shimmering Birkin Bag: Restocks From ‘Bling Ring’ Burglaries

Paris Hilton says she’s still reeling from the loss she suffered when the infamous Bling Ring gang ransacked her mansion back in the day.

Hilton showed off her crystal-encrusted pink Hermés Birkin bag Thursday, and said it helps soften the pain of losing 20 bags at the hands of Nick Prugo and his crew in 2008.

For those that don’t remember, The Bling Ring were a group of kids around Los Angeles that broke into several celebrity homes and stole millions of dollars in cash and property.

Hilton was one of their first victims, and the gang later revealed she had left her house key under her mat.  The whole crime spree was eventually made into a big Hollywood movie starring Emma Watson (and featuring The Blast’s own Mike and Gary in the special feature sections of the DVD for leading the charge on covering the crime spree).
