Eat Your Heart Out, Zagat

The Fashion Friendly Guide to Los AngelesCarole Sabas’ in-the-know guides to such cities as Miami, Paris, and New York are joined this week by The Fashion Friendly Guide to Los Angeles. The Paris Vogue contributor interviewed nearly forty fashion insiders to get their tips on everything from the perfect wood-fired pizza to painless facial extractions. Johnny Depp’s tattoo parlor of choice? Shamrock Social Club. The Rodarte sisters’ favorite cult movie houses? You’ll have to pick up the book.

Both Sabas and those she consulted for the guide (among them Angela Lindvall, Kate Bosworth, and Rachel Zoe) are quick to dispel misconceptions of a city often filtered through the lens of TMZ. “The most open city [I've written about] is definitely Los Angeles,” Sabas told Style.com. “I was amazed at how generous the people are! They like when people love the city and try to understand more than the celebrity culture.”

The tome’s cover features art from Sabas’ regular collaborator Caroline Andrieu. The illustrator created an ethereal portrait of quintessential L.A. It girl (and Mark “The Cobrasnake” Hunter’s girlfriend), model Diane Rosser. “I just love having her on the cover. To me she really represents this West Coast lifestyle,” Sabas says. “[Los Angeles] is very wild and very inspirational. It’s about freedom. You can be whatever you want.”

Below, Sabas consults her new release to map out a perfect L.A. day, exclusively for Style.com.

The Fashion Friendly Guide to Los Angeles is now available online and in-store at McNally Jackson, and later this week at Colette.

Follow In Fashion’s Footsteps

Ever wonder where Sofia Coppola goes to relax, who cuts Natalie Portman’s hair, or where Lady Gaga gets her vintage treasures? How about Isabel Marant’s favorite spot for scrambled eggs? French Vogue contributor Carole Sabas divulges all this and more in two new books: Fashion Insiders’ Guide to Paris and Fashion Insiders’ Guide to New York, both of which hit stores on May 7. A Parisian living in New York, Sabas has previously published tomes detailing hotspots in Miami, Paris, Brooklyn, and Manhattan, but the 2013 editions offer updated, personal picks from the likes of Karl Lagerfeld, Viktor & Rolf, Gaia Repossi, Alexander Wang, and Yaz Bukey. Needless to say, fashion’s best-kept secrets—like under-the-radar eateries, flea markets, and late-night spots—are no more. Sabas’ useful, privileged info is accompanied by the illustrations of Caroline Andrieu (above, left) and Bernadette Pascua (above, right). However, in her Paris intro, the author warns that the books are not meant to be authoritative. “Sometimes the crowd in a restaurant will look more appealing than your food. And you may wonder why the tastemakers still come here season after season. Ask them and they’ll shrug: ‘The owner is crazy.’” But, she adds, when you follow the fashion set, “expect to be surprised, bewitched, puzzled, maybe disappointed at times, but always dazzled.”

Carole Sabas’ Fashion Insiders guides are available for pre-order now at Abramsbooks.com.
