In Los Angeles, shopping is a way of life, and West Hollywood is home to the hippest, trendiest fashions and styles showcasing fresh and young-spirited designers… celebrity shopping at its best. You’ll find that West Hollywood’s numerous boutiques, showrooms, spas, shops, bookstores and galleries offer more than you could have imagined in 1.9 square miles.
If you want to have a celebrity sighting in LA, there are a few guaranteed places to go, such as The Ivy, Hyde, and the Church of Scientology Celebrity Centre as well as the city’s best shops. LA is one of the best shopping destinations on the planet, and for a primer on some of the city’s best stores, you only have to look at where the celebrities (and their stylists) shop. Any LA shopping trip should start with Fred Segal, the quirky department store where everyone from Katie Holmes to Barry Diller and Gwyneth Paltrowhave been spotted. To do it right, make sure to dress the part, arrive in a gorgeous car, and stay for lunch. If your style leans more towards vintage, follow in the footsteps of Kate Moss and CharlizeTheron and head to Decades. Or if you want to declare your allegiance to Team Jolie or Team Aniston with the appropriate t-shirt, stop in at the wonderfully kitsch Kitson boutique. Happy shopping, and don’t forget to tip the valet parking attendant well.
