TAYLOR MADE: Rebecca Taylor opened her first Los Angeles store Wednesday night with the obligatory starlet-studded party, drawing Busy Philipps, Emma Roberts, Rashida Jones, Emmy Rossum and Kristen Bell, but the enterprising designer also quizzed guests about what to do on her four-day visit. “I really want to go to Hollywood Boulevard and put my hands in Marilyn Monroe’s handprints, but I don’t know what else to do. And I don’t drive.” Bell came to her rescue, saying, “You can actually take the subway there. It’s the best-kept secret in L.A.” The actress also suggested a hike to the Griffith Park observatory, scene of the Hollywood classic “Rebel Without a Cause.” Also on the designer’s list: a visit to the Getty Museum and the beaches of Santa Monica.
