Fashion icons tend to live in a rather grand way, and why wouldn't they? Their sense of style and presence inevitably spills over to their homes, and more often than not, their passion for fashion is apparent throughout their domiciles. Writer and fashion muse Amy Fine Collins is one such individual. Known for her unique style and pixie-ish haircut, Collins' home is feminine, sophisticated, and chock full of references to fashion. The scrolled back lucite chair was designed for Helena Rubenstein's apartment. There are paintings and illustrations by Christian (Bebe) Berard and Marcel Vertes. Even one of the living room's rugs is attributed to Paul Poiret! It's actually rather amazing to see such a collection of pedigreed pieces. All in all, a unique home for a singular (and fashionable) personality.

Another Vertes, this time in the form of a screen, in the bedroom. The caned cabinet is Jean-Michel Frank, which had at one time been owned by Horst.
