Four Girls, Four Cities The chicest residents of London, Los Angeles, New York and Paris share their favorite places to shop for everything from lingerie to steak.
The only place for great customer service in london is Harrods. Yes, it’s touristy, but its staff is perfection at walking you through a challenging purchase, like buying jeans or bras. Plus, they carry every designer in the world. 87-135 Brompton Rd., 44-207-730-1234, harrods.com
Even my most conservative friends can’t resist a manicure at WAH Nails—there are about 60 different designs to choose from! I recently got a psychedelic daisy mani to match my Erdem skirt. Various locations, wah-nails.com
Giambattista Valli’s boutique is the epitome of luxury. Its pale pink walls, mirrored tables and 17th-century pillars make you think you’re in a couture salon. It seems appropriate, given that his ready-to-wear collection fits as if it were custom-made. 30 rue Boissy d’Anglas, 33-1-4017-0588, giambattistavalli.com
