Rodeo Drive

The so-called Golden Triangle holds more wealth and fine stores than most small countries. At its center is the renowned Rodeo Drive. It is the street on which Julia Roberts had her shopping spree in "Pretty Woman." It is the street that sports designer stores such as Tiiffany's, Cartier, Chanel, Bally, Gucci and other well-heeled notables. This is also the street that few people who don't spend their life in front of the camera can afford. On nearby Wilshire Blvd., there is the Regent Beverly Wilshire (seen in "Beverly Hills Cop"), Niketown, Barneys, and, yes, the "Winona"
Saks Fifth Avenue.

Melrose Avenue

Between San Vicente and La Brea Avenue
This is the tale of two streets. Since the early '80s, the stretch of Melrose between Fairfax and La Brea avenues has defined hip shopping in Los Angeles. The storefronts alone are works of pop art, and the approximately dozen blocks are still packed with hipsters trying to score the latest cool attire.
