Walking around Union Square yesterday, we noticed something that scares us even more than trying to find a Christmas present for our dad (why is that always so difficult?): A plague of “Sexy Santa” windows. Much like Top Model, the formula for these windows is always the same: Robust male mannequins in luxe cashmere sweaters are posed in the middle, surrounded by (sorry) a gaggle of Santa sluts – female mannequins decked in garish red bikinis, trimmed with white fluff. We know you can buy this kind of stuff online (what can’t you buy online?). But we didn’t know it's the hottest holiday window display theme south of Rockefeller Center. And really, does a Sexy Santa make you want to buy more stuff? We're saying no. Reindeer and cookies, s'il vous plait. --ALISON COOL
