Malls: This upscale complex is Hollywood's answer to the traditional Los Angeles mall's retail store and movie theater combo. Fashion-conscious shoppers will love all the options here, which include Forever 21, Louis Vuitton, Nine West and bebe. A Cirque de Soleil Boutique and Hard Rock Cafe Rock Shop are unique offerings. The building also houses the Kodak Theatre and Grauman's Chinese Theatre, as well as the Hollywood Renaissance Hotel.
Shopping Centers: Immerse yourself in the mix at Hollywood & Highland Center, a great place to shop and gather with friends. Here, trend-setting fashion and gourmet dining prove (at least in Hollywood) that haute couture and beautiful people reign supreme. Indeed, as you browse the racks in places like Louis Vuitton or BCBG Max Azria, keep your eyes peeled for silver screen sensations doing a little shopping of their own. Dining options include everything from Italian to Japanese. The plush, 640-room Renaissance Hollywood Hotel is the "cornerstone" of this upscale complex, which also boasts the Kodak Theatre.
