Each year, low-income and homeless high school girls get to choose from donated prom dresses during the Operation School Bell Prom Day giveaway in Los Angeles. The event, put on by the Assistance League of Los Angeles, also offered makeup and hair-styling advice to the students who were chosen by the Homeless Education Unit of the Los Angeles Unified School District.
An active-shooter false alarm brought chaos to Los Angeles International Airport Sunday night, temporarily putting a stop to travel and causing lines and delays to pile up into Monday morning. “Due to initial reports of an active shooter in Terminal eight at LAX, passengers in several LAX terminals self-evacuated onto the tarmac and rushed through federal security screening without being properly screened,” the airport explained in a statement. The Los Angeles Police Department evacuated the airport and conducted a search, later confirming there was no evidence of any shooting and that the incident appeared to be a false alarm.
Weary firefighters Thursday battled a raging inferno that was threatening the homes of more than 82,000 people in southern California and sent flaming "firenadoes" tearing across the brush.
Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders won’t be getting to the Greek Theater during his presidential campaign’s final swing through California. His campaign email attributed the switch to intervention from a local politician.
At least two people were shot dead at the University of California, Los Angeles on Wednesday, police and campus officials said, drawing a phalanx of police cruisers to the scene and prompting officials to lock down the campus. Los Angeles police spokesman Aareon Jefferson reported two fatalities from the shooting but could not confirm any details about the victims nor provide further information about the suspect.
Kendrick Lamar, deemed “arguably the most talented rapper of his generation” by Rolling Stone last year when he was 27, has written and spoken often of growing up in the Los Angeles suburb of Compton, which just this past weekend awarded him the Key to the City. It’s six blocks from Tam’s Burgers — “where I seen my second murder, actually,” he told Rolling Stone. Dude was in the drive-thru ordering his food, and homey ran up, boom boom — smoked him.” (Tam’s is the same restaurant where Suge Knight is said to have run over two men in the parking lot.) The house has three bedrooms and two bathrooms in 1,200 square feet, and it’s up for rent at $1,895 a month. “It’s a hell of a neighborhood,” one old-timer told Rolling Stone.
We can’t say we’re entirely surprised: Actor Charlton Heston’s incredible time capsule home, which we wrote about when it hit the market just last month, already has an offer pending. As you may recall, this is the first time the home has ever been for sale. It was built for Heston and his family in 1959. The family was asking $12,249,000 – which seemed possibly a bit pricey for its location in Los Angeles’ Coldwater Canyon, considering that Zillow estimated its worth at about $9 million.
Her living room is a black nightclub-style "lounge." Her bathtub is tiled in little mirrors. Will she be able to sell the house this time? She's been trying for seven years, off and on.
Emily Blunt and John Krasinski — one of Hollywood’s most adorable couples, as even their real estate agent attests — have just listed their home in Los Angeles’ Hollywood Hills at $8 million. You might be familiar with it already: It’s across the street from late-night host Jimmy Kimmel, and the neighbors frequently prank each other.
The famed Playboy Mansion is for sale: All 29 rooms, the storied grotto, a zoo license, and Hef himself. Any buyer would have to rent the Holmby Hills, California home to Hugh Hefner until he dies.
When you step into the soaring entry hall illuminated by light from colorful leaded glass windows and an ornate Moorish chandelier, you can almost imagine the laughter bubbling up from the speakeasy downstairs, or the intimate whispers of lovers stealing a few furtive moments in the coat check room. This place obviously hasn’t been the scene of a sparkling Hollywood party in a very long time. Designed in the early 1920s by one of the most esteemed and in-demand architects of the day, Paul Williams, one of its earliest residents was music magnate and Los Angeles philanthropist Benjamin Platt, who owned it in its early days, when its Los Feliz neighborhood was one of Los Angeles’ swankiest — especially the lovely, shaded street of Vermont, which today leads to the famous Greek Theatre and the Griffith Observatory.
Bruce Makowsky saw an untapped market at the luxury extreme. The gargantumansion that he built in Beverly Hills reportedly triggered a bidding war lost by Beyonce and Jay-Z.
Pawnbroker to the stars Yossi Dina buys and sells millions of dollars worth of paintings, sculptures, jewelry, watches, first editions, cars and memorabilia from his Beverly Hills shop, the Dina Collection, a block from Rodeo Drive in one of the world’s most exclusive shopping districts. He even stars in his own reality show, “Beverly Hills Pawn” on Reelz.
We’ve already written about the 100,000-square-foot gargantumansion that Niles Niami is building in Los Angeles’ Bel Air, which he plans to plunk on the market for half a billion dollars. It even seems to dwarf downtown Los Angeles in the background. While the video does a good job of helping us understand exactly how big the mansion is, it’s still pretty difficult to believe that any home is worth $500 milion, no matter how many pools it has (four). You can read more about the mansion, and a few other nine-figure spec palaces being built in Los Angeles, here.
There is no better place to shop for a car than an auto show. Every nameplate from every brand is available for you to touch, sit inside and, in some cases, test drive without a sales person leaning over shoulder or telling you he’ll be right back after he talks to his manager. Don’t misunderstand me, the goal of the Los Angeles Auto Show remains to move metal, but it does it with more honey and fewer sticks. During the media days, carmakers debuted 50 vehicles during 26 press conferences.
Infiniti has two main markets: The United States and China. Both cities are host to major auto shows this week and Infiniti wanted to put QX30 center stage for both shows with its dramatic styling and plush interior. “With our recent sales successes and record growth, the current product offensive will further strengthen Infiniti’s global market position,” said Roland Kruger, Infiniti president, in a news release.
LeBron James’ basketball career may be firmly planted in Ohio for at least another year, but he has his eyes on a second career a little closer to Hollywood, and now he has the house to prove it. James, jumping on the pocket/whisper/private listing trend, recently purchased a $21 million six-bedroom, seven-bathroom mansion in Brentwood, California. Though the house never made an appearance in the Multiple Listing Service (MLS), site of the vast majority of homes for sale, Variety found him out and “circumstantially affirmed with property records” that he’d bought the house.
In the battle of America’s palaces, Le Palais Royal in Florida has reclaimed the crown: Having just raised its price by $20 million, it’s now the nation’s most expensive home at $159 million. Turns out the price increase wasn’t necessary, though: The previous titleholder, Il Palazzo di Amore in Beverly Hills, California, has thrown in the towel. It was listed last year at $195 million, displacing the then-$139 million Palais Royal at the top of the market. As recently as two months ago, billionaire Palazzo owner Jeff Greene declared himself a “very motivated” seller, knocking $46 million off the price tag – which still left it the nation’s priciest mansion, at $149 million.
It’s a wild world at the highest end of residential real estate right now, especially in Los Angeles — so far beyond the scope of what usually passes for luxury that it practically demands a new vocabulary. In this world, developers and agents throw out the traditional real estate rulebook because the only way to sell one of these gargantumansions is to hang an absurd nine-figure price tag from it. “It’s almost as if there is no shame in wildly overpricing a listing anymore,” Jonathan Miller, the head of New York-based appraisal firm Miller Samuel, told the Wall Street Journal. Developer and Hollywood producer Nile Niami is in the midst of building what is expected to be the most expensive home in the country, maybe the world: a 100,000-square-foot mansion on a sunny hilltop in Beverly Hills that’s expected to hit the market next year at a whopping half a billion dollars.
