Voyeur Fridays - Brooke Shields' Manhattan Home


It's often difficult to imagine the crazy-cool lives of celebrities when we don't see them photographed at the local coffee shop or picking their kids up from ballet. They actually live pretty awesome lives of hobnobbing and chumming it up with the coolest people of the past and present. Take Brooke Shields, for example, who is the subject of today's Voyeur Fridays. She made Vogue history by being the youngest cover girl ever at 14. She famously made headlines for playing a prostitute in Pretty Baby at the age of 12 and appearing nude in Blue Lagoon at 15. She was also a regular at Studio 54 in her teens. The kicker? She was such a Hollywood darling that her friend Keith Haring, artist and social activist who died of AIDS in 1990, gift-wrapped her 21st birthday present in his own work. Fierce.

Shields' townhouse demonstrates everything that makes her her--a sophisticated, grown-up woman who has lived a life of luxury and excess, but has streamlined her surroundings just enough to still reflect her fun, fearless side.
