The LA Celebrity Shopping Guide: Where the Stars Shop
Celebrities are those glamorous beings we yearn to see on the big screen and even on the TV, landing up on gossip tabloid news or winning awards, but they do live among us. But, unlike most of us, they prefer to shop at stores way beyond the capabilities of our paychecks.
As a tribute to the ever-glamorous, we bring to you some shopping hot spots where you could see celebs from the world of TV, music and movies. And sometimes, they even indulge in frozen yogurt on a hot day, just like us.
