Nobody does fantasy Christmas windows like Bergdorfs. The oohing and aahing among street admirers hit overdrive this year with two particular knockout displays. From the North, the snow queen, splendid in white fur, surrounded by white animal courtiers including a bejeweled polar bear. And from the depths of Neptune, a diaphanous creature floating through an undersea world of glittering fish and ocean fauna in sparkling shades of aquamarine.

To complement their feathery finery in a window facing Central Park and the Plaza, gowned partiers sport alabaster bird heads, the more feathers the merrier.
