Many of Los Angeles’ most famous — and notorious — denizens are wealthy enough to have personal assistants do the rudimentary shopping for them, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t enough celebrities doing their own shopping to make spotting them as much as a spectator sport as watching the Lakers at STAPLES Center. And with more cell phones, smartphones and not-so-smart phones being made with built-in cameras, you too can be your own personal paparazzi without having to don the huge shades, funky hat or dismissive attitude. Just remember to peruse the latest fashion mags, because stars can be fickle about their favorite haunts, especially if they get outed, and be sure to bring plastic and be ready to spend big, or you may suffer the embarrassment of getting 86’d and creating more of a scene than the person you’re trying to track.
