Having popped to LA for the red carpet premiere of Twilight Breaking Dawn, it seemed churlish not to take a stroll down Rodeo Drive whilst here. Shacked up at the Beverly Wilshire (of Pretty Woman fame), it’s only a convenient hop across Wilshire Boulevard to the shopping mecca.
After a fortifyling glass of fizz at The Blvd, we set off at a pace to cover the hallowed ground of Rodeo Drive, ready to spot a movie star, but found…to be honest…not much. It felt a little like Knightsbridge on acid, all huge imposing store fronts coupled with the requisite somber looking security doorman, with not much excitement inside once you’d crossed the threshold.
We spotted a couple of Chanel clad old guard Hollywood wives in, funnily enough, Chanel. A few teeny tiny younger Hollywood types in a smattering of other stores, but to be honest it was like a ghost town bar the tumble weed heading down the center of the road.
We took a bodyswerve back to Wilshire and hit Saks 5th Avenue who’s shoe department resembled a tag sale, leggy model types falling over themselves to snag the latest Choo or Manolo. I did espy a Marni shearling tote that might be on my Christmas list…
On to Barney’s where we spied Carolina Herrera trying on a rather funky A.L.C fur vest…I’m wondering if it’s going to influence her F/W 12/13 collection in any way…
