What trip to Los Angeles is complete without a bit of celebrity spotting? We're here to help you ensure you know exactly where to find the stars. You see, Los Angeles is a pretty spread out city, and there happen to be many places A-listers wouldn't bother stepping foot in. To ensure a run in with your favorite celebs, you have to go to the sort of places they hang out in.
Of course, fashion is generally a big part of the celebrity lifestyle. At any given moment, you have quite a few celebs prancing around Los Angeles on their way to their favorite stores. Whether your aesthetic is indie or classic, you can find the store (and celeb) that matches that style. Just be warned, most of these celebrities easily spend what is two month's salary for us at just one of these stores. If you actually plan to do some shopping, be sure to save up for it! Otherwise, It's probably best to just do a bit of window shopping and hope to rub shoulders with your faves outside of one of these exclusive stores. Whatever you decide, we're giving you the tools to help you find your favorites. Do with it what you will!
