Celebrities — they need to sleep just like the rest of us. It's just that they have much nicer bedrooms to catch their ZzZ's in. Indulge your voyeuristic side and take a peek into the boudoirs and bachelor pads of 30 iconic figures.
Actress Elizabeth Taylor kneeling in a sheer white nightgown and robe is quite the site, but I personally can't get over that matching 1950's headboard and comforter.
Actress and singer Marlene Dietrich called her daughter from her bed in Hollywood in 1929, which seems all the more glamorous because of that huge phone.
American actress Ava Gardner smoldered amidst playing cards on the set of The Killers, directed by Robert Siodmak in the 1940's.
When you look up extravagance in the dictionary, you just see this picture of Joan Rivers and her little dog, too, in 1986. Seriously, flowers over the headboard is a bedroom trend we are quite keen on reviving.

Film star Diana Dors posed with her first baby, Mark Richard, and husband Dickie Dawson in a swansdown trimmed bedjacket in February 1960, as one does.

Our bed rest doesn't include such well-defined cat-eye eyeliner, but Ms. Marilyn Monroe recovered from an operation in her trademark style in 1953. She's reading a get-well Card from beau Joe DiMaggio, who also sent the roses on the table beside her.
Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg knows her way around statement dresses and statement furniture, and her NYC bedroom pictured here in 1978 is kind of our maximalist dream.

Actress Jane Russell was one of Hollywood's most notable pin-up gals and her glamour is accompanied here in 1944 by a delightful Hollywood Regency headboard.
Actress and sex symbol Jayne Mansfield's lavishly decorated home was known as "The Pink Palace." This picture is from 1960, but the millennial pink accents would fit in anywhere today.

French actress Jeanne Renouard looks beautiful pictured here in 1927, but that bedroom decor has us asking, "What's behind curtain number one?"
