This Week In Fab or Drab: June 24-28

Welcome to our weekly roundup of last week's most fab and drab outfits! And as an added bonus, we are throwing in some of our absolute favorite comments from our darling fans. We need opinions like we need supportive bras-let's hear it!

Jennifer Lopez

Diva-extroidinaire and frequent "block" resident was spotted achieving her star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame! And for the occasion, the Diva Latina turned up the volume in this peach taffeta confection. Here's what you gals had to say:

Megan Moore: "It looks like she grabbed her table cloth and tied it around her waist"

Lacy Ellsworth: "I have a dress from her collection at kohls and the top looks exactly like that"

Domino Mackey: "Fab 55% Drab 45%. I think that the shoes should have been white to tie in the top. I am a fan of duo colors." (we love when math is involved!)

Emily VanCamp

The star of "Revenge" was giving us her best Joan Holloway circa 2013 in this retro-inspired floral sheath dress.  It's a bit of a modern print on such a classic silhouette, and we can appreciate the idea behind this little frock.  Opinions, here they are:

James Knight: "A closed toe, stiletto pump, and black clutch, would've been nice. Black diamond hoops, and bracelet, would've worked, too."

Janet Reed: "FAB and the 'top knot' is an elegant touch. The dress was the star & hair/make-up were her supporting cast. "

Magdalena Elyse: "She is a gorgeous girl, but in my opinion that fabric print is heinous! The dress has a nice shape though."

Madonna

The Queen herself was spotted this week paying homage to Marlene Dietrich and we LOVED it! A gal should rock a top hat at least once in her fabulous life. Let's see what our darlings had to say!

Gretchen Edholm: "She should dress like this more often. Age appropriate and classy. Also, Marlene wins every time..."

Ohna Lee-Quist: "Love her, always have. But she doesn't have the same grace and presence that Dietrich had. If she were in posed shots perhaps, it's lacking in what she exuded effortlessly. Old Hollywood is hard to embody."

Teresa Chavreaux-Pittaway: "Great! Honestly some of Madonna's best looks have been when she has dressed in homage to stars from the past. Madonna really does pull it off so well. I wish she would do retro more often."

Octavia Spencer

The fabulous Ms. Octavia was spotted this week in a fabulously flattering blue lace dress and we spent our morning swooning a little! And her hair? Absolutely divine! Take it away, gals!

Doreen Rojas: "Divalicious!!!"

Laurel Hayward: "FAB. Could stand to be tailored a wee bit more up top, but just lovely!"

Bettie Jean Foga: "Gorgeous dress and girl!"

Dita Von Teese

Miss Dita arrived this morning to show us how it's done. She of course, knocked it out of the park and most likely the county. We took notes, cried a little and then asked our legions of followers what they thought!

Dawn Michelle Fanberg: "Fab! She could pull off a potato sack. She's hot!"

Briana Shackley: "The dress with simple sleek hair and red lips works so well together! Its very Parisian with the scroll pattern."

Tamara Alfonso-Ganz: "SO FAB.....WORK IT GIRL......" (simple, and to the point.)
