    Think hitting up a day of shopping is hard work — dealing with crowds and avoiding run-ins with acquaintances you'd rather not talk to? Well, imagine how our town's femme fatales must feel as they're constantly stalked by the paps and blinded with flashbulbs. Sure, they get loads of free swag, and score wardrobe triage from a bevy of stylists, but sometimes the dirty work is left up to them (gasp!).

    So, when the superstar set actually hits the pavement, you know it's in a worthwhile establishment. (Which means you should be there, too.)

    We're not exactly peddling roadside star maps here, but we did design a glitterati-hunting GPS that will take you from the Palisades to La Brea for your own Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous moment. One word of advice, though: Don't go all Lohan on us and blow all your bucks!
