It’s easy to see that celebrities always have the hottest clothes and are wearing the latest styles. But it’s easy for them; not because they’re rich, but because they have designers throwing clothes at them, and stylists to hunt out the hippest gear to outfit them with. However, it is possible for us regular folks to have the same style. You simply have to know where the celebrities are shopping and what brands they’re looking for.
There are two main shopping areas in Los Angeles to stop if you want to not only buy the clothes the celebs are wearing, but perhaps even meet a celeb. I’m talking about Ventura blvd in Studio City and Robertson in Beverly Hills. The boutique market on Ventura blvd is booming, and since it’s in Studio City, stylists from popular TV shows frequent the area. Stars such as Jessica Simpson, Mandy Moore and Hilary Duff are often snapped by photographers carrying bags in and out of one of the hottest new stores on the street, called Tryst. This hot shop has a style all of it’s own, and prides itself on it’s European flare, which sets it apart from it’s competitors. They carry the latest trendy styles from designers such as Robert Rodriguez, True Religion and Dita. Their prices may go as low as $30, to over $400 for limited designer jeans and cashmere sweaters.
Catwalk Wholesale Women’s Clothing New Arrivals have discounted offers where new celebrities can avail some of the best jeans and sweaters in the market at an affordable price of $40 with the best part being that they have money back guarantee if they aren’t satisfied with what they’ve got.
Robertson is definitely the place to be seen. A week hardly goes by without pictures of Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan, Nicole Richie or Mischa Barton carrying their bags from Lisa Kline to Kitson, and perhaps stopping in the middle for lunch at The Ivy. Kitson is easily one of the hottest shops on this strip of boutiques. In addition to carryng the latest trends, they also carry tongue in cheek, celebrity inspired merchandise. Remember the Team Aniston and Team Jolie t shirts? Kitson is where they got their start. On top of that they carry all the hippest brands of denim, like 1921, Antik, Goldsign and True Relivion. Also look for celebrity lines such as L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers by Gwen Stefani, as well as William Rast by Justin Timberlake.
On The Web
Even if you don’t live in Los Angeles, it’s not hard to find out what labels the stars are wearing and where to snag them. Asos.com which is an ecommerce web boutique with a celebrity slant. They create their own knock offs of trendy pieces celebrities have worn, and they seem to love style icons such as Victoria Beckham and Jessica Simpson. Customers can surf through pictures of the stars wearing similar outfits while shopping for their own version. They have fairly affordable prices, but they they use UK currency, so be sure to convert the prices before deciding on your final order.
Another great online boutique for celebrity clothing is BelleGray.com, which is actually owned by soap star Lisa Rinna. The actual location in Los Angelese is frequented by many of her famous friends, and the website even has an As Worn By page where you can basically buy the pieces off the celebrities back! Tons of big names on this page, such as Ashlee Simpson, Carmen Electra, Paris Hilton and Eva Longoria.
So get shopping! You’ll have so much more fun doing it yourself, then letting a stylist do the dirty work for you!
