During the holidays, it's a tradition to walk New York's Fifth Avenue and check out the lavish displays in the department store windows. This weekend, Los Angeles will host the design version of that event. Elle Decor has teamed up with La Cienega's Design Quarter, the design stores around that stretch of the boulevard between Melrose and Santa Monica, to salute Hollywood's legacy of sensational style.
As part of the event, many of the windows along that corridor have been decorated by both interior designers and set decorators as an homage to favorite films and television shows. Here's a peek at some of the windows we got to check out yesterday; it's a great reason to park the car, stretch your legs and visit some of the stores you might usually only drive by.
