Carolina Herrera, Los Angeles
Once favored by Jackie O, Venezuelan native Carolina Herrera is known for clothing with feminine flourishes like meticulous embroidery and beading. The designer’s Melrose Place boutique is filled with racks of colorful clothing from her collection, including tweed classics, sleek sheath dresses, pant suits, cropped wool jackets, and gossamer evening dresses. There’s even a collection of colorful Manolo Blahniks in the shop to make accessorizing easy, and Herrera’s wedding-gown designs can be found in the boutique’s adjacent Bridal Salon.
