OUT OF THE CLOSET
We never thought of Paula Abdul as a fashion icon, but hey – we know a good deal when we see one. American idol’s emotional host cleaned out her closets and hauled a mountain of barely worn clothing to Celebrity Closet Raiders on Sunset Strip. Smart shoppers can buy items from Paula’s personal wardrobe at a fraction of the original price. Of course, it helps if you’re REALLY petite like Paula. The shop has stacks of her old designer jeans in size 26 and 27 ( they’re too big for Paula now) jackets , dresses, and a big rack of T-shirts. Best of all – most of the labels are from Robertson Blvd or Montana Avenue.
