When Miranda Kerr's lingerie was stolen

- Los Angeles, May 18 (IANS) Supermodel Miranda Kerr's valuable lingerie collection was once stolen by Bling Ring, a notorious gang of youngsters who steal celebrities' personal belongings.
The former Victoria's Secret model's enviable lingerie collection was specifically targeted by the notorious gang of celebrity-obsessed teen burglars because they wanted to look sexy, reports contactmusic.com.
Nancy Jo Sales, who first exposed the gang in an article, told Vanity Fair: "They wanted to look sexy. Looking sexy in a celebrity's clothes, well that's even sexier. Especially Miranda Kerr, who (was) a Victoria's Secret model.
"The fact that they stole the underwear just seems so weird, but it's not weird when you think about it, because they're growing up at a time when their culture is constantly telling them to be sexy."
"Everything from toys to video games to music to fashion is hypersexualised for girls. Stealing their underwear was part of a whole trend to emulate these celebrities. They don't just want expensive underwear; they want Paris Hilton's underwear," added Sales.
