Anderson Cooper used to live upstairs from this apartment at 28 West 38th Street, and we half wish he'd passed along some decorating tips. On the other hand, what's there now is pretty stripetacular. The place belongs to "world renowned celebrity hairdresser Julien Farel," according to the listing, and he gave it a four-year renovation "to merge the old world glamour of industrial space with an elegant clean-line modern renovation." One quirk of that renovation isn't shown in the photos: apparently it "COMES WITH A WARDROBE. The apartment has been designed around this unique and monstrous dressing room. Its length and size have been planned for a woman with a substantial wardrobe. It stretches beyond one's imagination." And fried the listing photographer's film?
