Attend exclusive parties.
If you are not wealthy, look for exclusive spots where the rich and famous might mingle. Los Angeles in particular is home to many famous clubs and lounges. The Living Room lounge at the W Hotel in west Los Angeles, for instance, is known for attracting high-profile guests. Many clubs and hotels have guest lists for their parties. Call ahead of time and ask to be put on the list. Unless the party is meant for an intimate gathering, most establishments will accommodate outside guests. If you're unable to get on the guest list, show up at the door and plead your case to the bouncer. Many bouncers are less likely to enforce a guest list toward the end of a party.

There you can find designer clothing stores like Gucci, Giorgio Armani and Dolce & Gabbana.
Be an asset.
The are several obvious reasons as to why you would want to meet a wealthy bachelor, but you must ask yourself why a wealthy bachelor would want to meet you.

Maybe you're smart, successful in your field, beautiful or just a really nice person. Whatever your strength is, make it clear that you can bring something important into that person's life.
