Star Maps: Style Edition!

So, why not take the tradition and give it a good ol' Cali makeover. Enter R29's Star Maps: Style Edition, our handmade guide to the most fashionable areas of L.A., and the style icons that define each! Come on, let's go for a drive!

The Location: Beachwood

The Look: Picture a small tent smack-dab in the center of Disneyland, on the busiest day of the year. Tucked away in the middle of Hollywood's most populated area, Beachwood's ideal for those who seek privacy — but never stray far enough to miss out on a party. Expect a total hodgepodge of cozy cabin-lifers, bohemian artists, and nature babes in tracksuits. The craziest part? Some even appear to be all three of the above.

The Location: Beverly Hills

The Look: If you're picturing Troop Beverly Hills, you're actually not that far off. Aside from the lack of shoulder pads and perms, 90210 is pretty much the same lavish display of luxury shown in all the movies. Yes, there are even really, really big hats.

The Location: Laurel Canyon

The Look: It hasn't totally moved on from its counterculture heyday, but then again, why should it? You go hang out with Jim Morrison and Frank Zappa, and then maybe you'll be allowed to criticize.

The Laurel Canyon Icon: Joni Mitchell

Where You'll Find Her Descendants: You probably won't find them — unless, of course, you manage to get an invite to one of their wildly bohemian parties.

The Look: Young, playful, and enthused. Fun... but not too goofy.

The Larchmont Icon: Alexa Chung

Where You'll Find Her Descendants: Sure, she's from England, but if we're talking strictly style, Chung's pure-bred Larchmont. You'll find clusters with Peter Pan collars and Mary Jane flats, twirling kooky (but expensive) keychains, as they wait in line for coffee at Brick & Scones.

The Location: Santa Monica

The Look: Nike Dunks, retro running shorts, and great hair. Also, being well-versed in '90s hiphop is kind of a prerequisite.

The Location: Malibu

The Look: Seventies beach funk still reigns supreme in Malibu. Bleach-blonde shag cuts, barely there bikinis, and slippers by the door (in case — God forbid — you need to chase your beau's Golden Retriever down PCH).

The Malibu Icon: Goldie Hawn

Where You'll Find Her Descendants: If they're not hiding out in the Colony, you might catch them sharing homemade grilled pita at Taverna Tony's or stolling around The Malibu Country Mart in cut-off Levi's.
