Barney's Gets Baz Dazzled

The Barney's windows were done up by Baz Luhrmann for the holidays.  The unifying theme appears to be Madonna's Celebrate -- which is at its most flamboyant when an opera singer comes out to sing while Madonna's rendition.wafts out over the crowds.  Alas, I did not capture that so well as I was staking out the ice skating rink waiting for a skater to appear.  And appear she did.

My favorite of the windows is the owl that intones Madonna's Holiday in a sonorous voice.  Maybe this is because when I first saw the window, two women with just the hint of a southern accent, had this exchange:

First Woman:  What does this have to do with the holidays?
Second Woman:  This has nothing to do with the holidays

About sums it up.  I leave you with the owl.
