When we heard about Simon Doonan's mad scramble to Isabel Toledo-fy the Barneys New York window displays after Michelle Obama wore the designer's work to the inauguration, we decided to see if the Beverly Hills outpost had followed suit. Turns out they have, transforming the far left corner into an aww-inspiring love letter to the two most talked-about ladies of the moment. Inside, a handful of Toledo's pieces have been displayed on the main floor, with a staffer confirming they arrived just yesterday.

So what about ballgown maestro Jason Wu? According to his publicist, he'll soon be the subject of his own window display at Neiman Marcus, to be unveiled in about two weeks.—Erin Magner
