Whitney Port is her own girl; she’s not afraid to stake her claim on things she loves and pass on what doesn’t suit her. This is why her friends and following love her, and it’s what makes her such an original source of inspiration in our minds, especially in her role as designer – bold prints and all.
Earlier this month we joined Whitney at home and quizzed her on festival do’s and don’ts in the desert. This week, we’re talking best spots in L.A. for dates, workouts and getting outdoors. In this city, hotspots sprout up overnight, every night. Whitney’s favorites include a few of our own, plus a few well-worn classics – from Tower Bar to the Beverly Hills Hotel – that are stirring up all our appreciation for the City of Angels…
