While Las Vegas may not (yet) be L.A. or New York, we’ve got celebrities living here, too. And it makes me wonder… where do they shop? So I turned to my good friend Christie Moeller, Las Vegas Fashion Stylist and Fashion Blogger, to find out.
Now, Moeller can’t reveal her list of celebrity clientele, because she holds their confidentiality, however, she would tell me that her client list includes well-known entertainment performers, actors, models and Vegas Strip headliners. Additionally, she’s also willing to share just where these celebrities like to shop!
“The top favorite among my male clients is John Varvatos,” Moeller says, “Men love the clean, masculine cuts, the quality of the fabrics and the rock and roll edge of John Varvatos designs.”
But what about the women? “It varies with the clients’ personal style and age,” she explains, “Some of the favorites include Neiman Marcus and TOPSHOP, but right now everyone is holding their breath in excitement for Henri Bendel to open.”
Well now that we know where the celebrities shop, what are the chances of us spotting one there? Or, will we just find Moeller doing their shopping for them? Moeller says it’s probably both. “I see a celebrity eight times out of 10 visits to John Varvatos, but they are crafty at disguising themselves, so you have to keep your eyes peeled,” she confirms.
Because summers in Las Vegas are excruciatingly hot, Moeller says her clients are more concerned about the weight of the fabrics they wear as opposed to trends during this warm season. She says her clients are wanting “light as a feather” fabrics that are chic and effortless. But for fall, Moeller plans on shopping for fashion in oxblood to update her clients’ wardrobes. “Anything in oxblood will scream chic this fall,” Moeller says, “And combining black and blue is another big trend.”
Interested in hobnobbing with the celebs? You can shop John Varvatos at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino (4455 Paradise Rd.) and at Forum Shops (3500 Las Vegas Blvd. S.). Visit Neiman Marcus, TOPSHOP and Henri Bendel, which opens August 29, at Fashion Show Mall (3200 Las Vegas Blvd. S.).
