The Virtual World of Haute Living

Haute Secrets

Haute Living asked the most notable individuals in each of our markets for their opinions on their city’s best restaurants, hotels, spas, shopping venues, cultural events, and more. Opinions from the likes of Candy Spelling, Clive Davis, Arnold Kopelson, and Helio Castroneves are held in the highest regard, so access isn’t as simple as clicking a link. The “Insider Guides” are accessible only to those who sign-up at

Society Editors

Ever wonder what it is like to be a socialite? And not one of those aspiring socialites but a legit lady who lunches—and makes Page Six headlines by doing so? Then direct your browser to “Dori’s World,” a look into the lavish lifestyle of New York society staple Dori Cooperman. There is not a party, grand opening, or charity gala that she doesn’t know about or hasn’t been invited to, and when she does attend, she is constantly snapping photos and sending updates to Haute Living editors. In a like manner, TV, theater, and film actress Rachel Heller is making a name for herself in New York on the charity circuit, and she has the stories—which she writes for—to prove it. On the West Coast, star of VH1 reality show Secrets of Aspen Brooke Lauren
shares tales from her adventures traveling the country as a jetsetting photographer for top models in her column “Brooke 411.”

Haute 5

We combine the opinions offered by Haute Secrets participants with our in-depth knowledge of our markets and present our top five picks for specific categories each Tuesday and Thursday. We publish the Haute 5 in each of our nine markets, and soon, we will release a smartphone application that will allow readers to access these Haute Five lists on the go.

In our archives, you can find our picks for the Haute Five: Sushi Restaurants; Steakhouses; Sunday Brunches; Comfort Foods; Shopping Destinations; Romantic Restaurants; Mexican Restaurants; Places to Power Lunch; Spots for People Watching; Neighborhoods; Late-Night Dining; Calorie-Burning Workouts; Hotel Lobbies; Burgers; Mixologists; Afternoon Teas; Modern Art Galleries; Wine Bars; Men’s Boutiques; Cultural Institutions; Golf Courses; Outdoor Dining; Presidential Suites; Historical Landmarks; and more.

Check back for the Haute Five: Swimming Pools; Wine Lists; Weekend Getaways; Gardens/Parks; Flower Shops; Yoga Studios; Excursions; and Sporting Good Stores set to go live in the coming weeks.

Event Coverage

The best part of being haute is having access to the most exclusive events, from black-tie affairs and charity luncheons to fashion shows and after-parties. We feature daily coverage of events attended by the region’s elite, sometimes even complete with insider info on what went down, who wore what, and where the party continued later. Through Facebook Connect, users will soon have the ability to tag their pictures and have the info show up directly in their news feeds.

Haute 100

Our Haute 100 list features the 100 most notable individuals in the city. While our archives have always included the list in its entirety, we will soon be launching individual pages for each of our Haute 100 members. In addition to an expanded bio, the Haute 100 page will include the member’s Haute Secrets answers, as well as archive each of the articles, blogs, and events featuring that member. While we publish the Haute 100 list annually in each of our markets, the members are always making moves, and our daily Haute 100 updates keep readers abreast of the headlines.
