My LA: Rachel Zoe's Secret LA Haunts

She's responsible for some of the most memorable celebrity fashion moments (Cameron Diaz in pink Chanel, and Anne Hathaway in glittering Armani Privé) and some of our favorite hyperbolic slang (we die!), and one of our fave daily newsletters, so we can barely wait to catch the season two premiere of The Rachel Zoe Project tomorrow on Bravo. Of course, the ep will be filled with the requisite crazytime schedule, boot cut jeans, and fur vests, but what you won't see is where Rachel hangs when the cameras aren't rolling. And since this L.A. lady has the skinny on the best new art gallery in town, and where to go when you desperately need a tress trim, we are beyond thrilled to share this Boho babe's five fave local haunts. Whether it's a Robertson boutique that's stocked with her favorite fashionable finds, or a members-only club for a supper among the stars, we've got all the Rachel-approved L.A. resources that are, in the words of our subject du jour, literally beyond.

1. Byron and Tracey Salon: "Home of my longtime hair guru, Byron Williams. This salon is a bright and airy escape for me whenever I want to revive my tresses...every stylist and colorist here is a true artist."
9294 Civic Center Drive (at Beverly Boulevard); 310-276-4770.
2. Prism Gallery: "My friends P.C. Valmorbida and Jaren Najjar opened up this three-story gallery just last year and it is a constant source of amazing art. I recently visited the Andy Warhol exhibit with a selection of his silkscreened black and white major."
8746 West Sunset Boulevard (at Holloway Drive); 310-289-1301.
3. Soho House West Hollywood: "As one of my go-to NYC spots, I am thrilled that we now have a Soho House in L.A. I go here for total privacy, wonderful food, and magical afternoon tea that gives one the feeling of a European experience. The perfect place for meetings."
9200 Sunset Boulevard (at Cory Avenue); 310-432-9200.
4. Curve Boutique: "Curve's owner and my dear friend Nevena Borissova, pioneered the unexpected, way-ahead of the trend vision for boutiques in Los Angeles. She carries exclusives on some of the best designers—want everything."

5. Sunset Tower Hotel: "Rodger and I have been dining at Sunset Tower for years--it's like home. Jeff Pine, the owner, has maintained it as a very special spot to have incredible food and a mind-blowing view of the city."
