If Marie Antoinette was a modern-day LA babe whose muse was '60s sex symbol Brigitte Bardot, we'd expect to find her splayed across some chaise, like the vintage Hollywood Regency one at Niki Schwan Fashion Gallery's boudoir-like corner on Melrose Place. Tucked away in Suite G behind fashionable coffee shop Alfred, celeb-faved skincare studio Kate Somersville and new shop Elodie K., the previously private boutique of celeb stylist/Lura Starr designer Niki Schwan opened to the public earlier this month. (Her e-shop debuts next week.)

"Forever in pursuit of sexy, I created a space that exudes femininity, grace, and luxury," says Schwan, a former VIBE magazine fashion director whose celeb clientele includes Nicki Minaj, Dita Von Teese, Scarlett Johansson, Lauren Conrad and many others. Stocked with hard-to-find European couture, provocative underpinnings and risque swimwear and accessories, the "one-stop sexy shop" features labels like Alpana Neeraj, ID Sarreiri, Lascivious, Jane Woolrich, Maison Close, Laruicci, Marianna Harutunian, Mijanou and much more. Explore the glamorous space and see more inside after the jump.

Niki Schwan Fashion Gallery is open Monday through Saturday from 11am to 7pm and Sunday from 12pm to 6pm.
