Last night, Bloomingdale's became the first of New York's major department stores to unveil its holiday windows, kicking off two weeks of big reveals uptown. Bloomingdale's theme this year is Cirque du Soleil, so naturally last night's festivities included a dash of Vegas. Above, check out the window installations, which include interactive elements and animation. (If you think they look cool now, imagine all those acrobats actually moving.) After the jump, we've got a clip of the Cirque performers doing their thing on Lexington Avenue.
