lay lady lay, lay across my big brass bed

I love the idea of spending lazy weekend afternoons laying all day in my bed, swallowed by my mass of pillows and blankets. I am a summertime bum, and I lounge in my sleepwear all day like it's my job. Apparently I have a few tricks to learn from these glam vixens, who make laying in a swath of pillows an art

A model for Biba looks her vamp finest 

Genius use of the tiger rug as a blanket over the coach - and I want that marabou-and-silk robe, and that long cigarette holder (and I don't even smoke!)

I love Brittany Murphy's penthouse in Uptown Girls

Penelope Tree looks divine in her equally as divine surrounding 



The 'fabulous destiny' of Amélie apparently also included the coolest digs in all of the 18th arrondissement

From Urban Outfitters' latest catalog - minus the orgy-like setting, I want everything that's in this photo

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart lay outside in style - and quite literally In Style 

A scene from Emmanuelle 

Lauren Hutton is in model form in these gorgeous dresses and chairs

There is nothing I do not covet in this photo of Louise Ebel 

Mia Farrow matches - or clashes, depending on who you ask - with this flowery red couch in an equally as much floral frock

Sylvia Kristel - star of Emmanuelle - rivals her own onscreen photo in this mass of pillows and lace

Nicky Samuel matches dress to rug to tapestry to perfection while modeling Ossie Clark

Stripped down, chrome and glowing, Olivia Wilde is va-va-voom in Tron: Legacy

Peggy Lipton reviews scripts and snuggles up in a knit blanket for Life Mag

Tina Aumont, captured in all her bohemian glory in a home movie

I want all of Peggy Moffitt's pillows here - she wouldn't mind, would she?

Jane Birkin - a goddess in furs

Truman Capote in his glam apartment

All sooo fabulous, but you can't beat the Biba one! x

The Olivia Wilde picture is from Tron: Legacy. I wouldn't care, except it's a great movie that deserves credit.

I love pillows, and more pillows. My dream is to have a deep, pillow strewn window seat that I can just get lost in!

Great post! I too have mastered the art of louche lounging....best done on a mountain of cushions and perhaps a faux fur throw - with Martini in hand. xx

LOVE this post! I adore these themed posts you have with so many photos on the same subject. I must say, Brittany Murphy in Uptown Girls was my idol- I loved her optimism and especially her penthouse!
