Award show-worthy gowns for celebrities and regular-types alike.. In Short Australian designer Richard Tyler made L.A. his home in the mid-'80s and opened this flagship boutique in 1987. Sure, there's a men's collection, a women's ready-to-wear collection and even a relatively new bridal line, but here it all comes down to the eveningwear. Gowns start at $2500 and go up (way up!) from there. Grab your checkbook and a pair of Richard Tyler's extravagantly adorned stilettos, and you're good to go.
