Before her star-studded fashion show at Amoeba Hollywood in January, Stella McCartney had a chance to do some record shopping and share her picks with us. Needless to say her Autumn 2016 preview was one of the biggest things to hit Amoeba since, well, her father, Paul McCartney, played here. Being a daughter of music royalty, McCartney had some special insight into her picks, having known or met many of the artists personally, and she shares the poignancy of the albums to her and her family.

It was definitely a thrill to see people as famous as Gwyneth Paltrow, Quincy Jones and Kim Gordon stroll into Amoeba on the black carpet while bulbs flashed and journalists got into it about who was wearing what. I got the chance to chat with Emilia Clarke (“Game of Thrones”), who revealed to me that her first album was Aqua (I assured her mine was no cooler with Ace of Base). I spoke with fashion icon Rachel Zoe, who told me her first concert was U2. And I share a moment with Mary J.
