Even if you don't live in New York, you can see the famed Bergdorf Goodman Christmas windows online. Inspired by the "natural Baroque" style of the late Tony Duquette, each rococo window represents an element such as air or fire (above). All five are showcased in a special section of the retailer's Web site titled "Unveiled." Bergdorf's recent "shop by floor" feature also makes shoppers feel they are inside the store. A simple drawing of the building and photos of each floor direct online customers to the department they wish to visit.
Attempts to wrest control of the remote will turn into a playful pillow fight with these prototype cushions designed by Didier Hilhorst and Nicholas Zambetti for Dutch design firm Droog. One pillow switches the channel, another sets the volume, and a third turns the TV on and off.
POP GOES THE LAPTOP
Brazilian neo-pop artist Romero Britto jazzed up a high-end laptop with imagery taken from his painting "Mia's Jungle." NVousPC, a Miami-based computer maker that offers custom paint jobs and graphic design, rendered the design in high-gloss paint similar to that used on luxury cars. The Windows notebook is tricked out for mobile entertainment with a speedy Intel Core 2 Duo processor and a large (160 gigabyte) hard drive. The one-of-a-kind laptop is on display at the artist's gallery, Britto Central, in Miami and costs $8,800.

Spotted last night at the @erdem x @hm launch event: Kate Bosworth, Rashida Jones, Kirsten Dunst and Selma Blair. The party, which took place in LA, also marked the opening of their pop-up shop. “I was interested in creating a collection that wasn’t in any way disposable. It was about pieces you’d create and keep forever, things that have a permanence to it,” designer Erdem Moralioglu said. #wwdeye (📷: Katie Jones)
Renee Zellweger in yellow in 2001 and again in 2017. Chosen as one of the 12 @pantone Leading Spring Colors (and dubbed “Meadowlark”), it only makes sense that the bright hue stands the test of time and is making a resurgence this season, seen already on stars like @blakelively and @gigihadid.
