Bergdorf's holiday displays have a lot of fans, but it seems safe to say that Vanity Fair correspondent Amy Fine Collins is the world's biggest. From the introduction to the store's new coffee table book: "To know not just what’s going on in the store, or in the fashion world, but in the whole wide community of the planet, a good place to start is the Bergdorf’s windows. I follow them like the news, and know their cyclical rhythms—such mystery when they are wrapped and dismantled to make way for new ones, under the cover of the night." [Vanity Fair]
