|The glamorous queen of Bergdorf!|
This year’s holiday windows on the Fifth Avenue side of Bergdorf Goodman are a collaboration with Swarovski and are called “Brilliant Holiday.” What a razzle dazzle multicolored shimmering delight they are! The details, as usual, are such that you want to stand at each window and stare at them forever. I always go to see the windows at night when there are less crowds, and in order to get better pictures, but I can just imagine how these displays must sparkle in the sunlight!
|“The Crown Jewels.”|
This window is “The Crown Jewels,” complete with an Elizabethan-era queen, knights, a huge golden crown, a lap dog, winged griffins, and two crown-wearing lions. Love it!
|The tiny girl in front was fascinated with this window. She was so adorable!|

|What’s a monarch without her beloved pooch?|
This window is “Hidden Gem,” featuring one glamorous miner. I loved the tones of purple throughout this window.
|I loved the amethyst hues in this window.|
This display, “Glitterati,” was my favorite, featuring babes having a wild party celebrating every month of the year.
|Two of my favorite mannequins this year.|
|Who doesn’t love a champagne bottle festooned with crystals?!|
|Love the feather hat on top of turquoise hair. The mannequin holds a list in her hand...|
|...featuring Birthstones. I do not agree with June, October or December!|
What happened to pearl for June, opal for October and turquoise for December? Not that there is anything wrong with alexandrite, tourmaline or zircon, it’s just that I like the traditional birthstones!
|The cake for March.|

All you pearl lovers out there should appreciate this window, “Treasured,” which features thousands of pearls! This was another window that really captured my heart.
|A glorious Neptune and fish made out of pearls!|
|The dress is by Naeem Khan.|
|The jewelry is by Kentshire.|
|I loved these swirls of pearls!|
|“The Crystal Ball.”|
The window “The Crystal Ball” features a monkey fortune-teller and a sweet-faced mannequin sitting at the table while the Wheel of Fortune behind them slowly turns.
|Waiting to hear her what the future holds for her!|
|The fortune teller.|
|This gal looks pretty happy for having a monkey reading her future!|
Once again the incredibly talented designers and artists have turned the Bergdorf windows into a dreamlike wonder. Let me know which window is your favorite! I will be back one more time to focus on the smaller windows on the Fifth Avenue side of the store, with drool-worthy accessories and clothes. You can see the windows on the 58th Street side of the store here.
I hope you are enjoying these final frenzied days leading up to Christmas!
