Peaches Geldof
In 2011, the British socialite was accused of pocketing about $100 of cosmetics from health & beauty store Boots. After she handed the goods back to security, though, the store decided not to press charges....even though Peaches had been accused of shoplifitng on at least three occasions before.

Among the things Peaches allegedly sticky-fingered? Two Rimmel mascaras and a bottle of L'Oreal foundation. (I mean, it is pretty great.)
Winona Ryder
In 2001, Winona was arrested at a Beverly Hills Saks for attempting to steal $5,560 worth of goods from the store. In 2002, she was convicted and ordered to both reimburse the store and to do no less than 480 hours of community service.

On Winona's laundry list of thing she tried to take: a $1,600 Gucci dress, a $350 Eric Javits hat, a $760 Marc Jacobs blouse, a $550 Dolce & Gabbana bag and $80 Donna Karan socks. (We still can't get over the fact that socks are in that mix.)
Lindsay Lohan
In 2011, Lindsay was accused of stealing a Kamofie necklace (valued at roughly $2,000) that she claimed was actually on loan from the jewelry store. Still, she pleaded no contest and was sentenced to community service.

Interestingly, the necklace in question wasn't a giant bauble or sparkler but a demure little gold chain. A lot of trouble for something so subtle, right?
Caroline Giuliani
In 2010, the daughter of former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani was caught pocketing $150 of cosmetics in an uptown Sephora.

We can (sorta) understand the impulse behind taking the expensive Dior primer or Bliss bodycream, but a run of the mill hairnet? Seriously?
Britney Spears
In 2008, Britney walked out of Los Angeles high end boutique Fred Segal wearing a $200 black long-sleeve top that she put on in the dressing room and then "forgot" to  pay for. After Britney returned the top, though, the store didn't press charges, despite Britney getting in trouble before that for allegedly shoplifting wigs and lighters elsewhere.

In Britney's defense, trying something on and walking out while still wearing it does seem like a more natural mistake than "accidentally" putting something into your purse with the tags cut off, you know?
