Rapid notoriety quickly lured movie stars, moguls, and style seekers, leading the press to dub Melrose Avenue "the new Rodeo Drive."

  • By the Hollywood way of "Beverly Hills, 90210" (Dear! ) Filming locations visited in the afternoons. "Now Wear This" location of Donna and Kelly, at the time I was completely changed by now (; ^ ω ^) LA celebrities and fashionable young and trendy location in LA is a huge hit with. Thrift store from a photogenic spot unique shops and popular luxury brand stores, the LA's. But, this is pretty long, and enough time. Made determining the purpose better.
