Barney's Holiday Windows... A Tribute to SNL!

Yesterday, Barney's revealed it's 'Holiday Windows'... a tribute to 35 years of Saturday Night Live, (as only in the witty style they are known for), including a papier-mache' Sarah Palin!  Simon Doonan, Barney's Creative Director, when asked by Time Out New York, WHY SNL?, "SNL was the perfect match for us: 35 years of imagery and names and phrases which have embedded themselves in the national consciousness. Cheeseburger! Cheeseburger! King Tut! Debbie Downer! Roseanne! The Coneheads!  Whatever we did, I knew it would give people a chuckle.  And G-- knows this is the year of the much-needed chuckle!"

Barney's is on Madison between 60th and 61st streets, and then you can walk over to 5th avenue to see Lord and Taylor (?) and Saks (unveiled Nov 23) windows too.  If you decide to shop Barney's they have kids gifts...  I love this modern and delicate chair for the little princess in your life, the Lou Lou Barbie Chair in pink for $170 (this is for you Taylie!)...
