This Week In Fab or Drab: Sept 2-6

Hello gals! And welcome back! Did you all have a restful weekend? As per usual, this week was a purse-full of opinions and you gals didn’t hold back! Throw on some lipstick, grab your cat eyes and let’s take a look at the week’s best (and most questionable) ensembles.

Ariana Grande


The starlet was spotted in this flowery number for the MTV crowd last week and our dear friend Kenley Collins was behind the fragrant frock! We thought the shoes were a fun pop of color and her hair was a charming 60s inspired look. Let’s see what you gals had to say!

Renia Carsillo: “Gorgeous! What a great way to look sexy without looking like a cheap hooker! She should take Miley Cyrus shopping.”

Briana Shackley: “The print and the structured fabric are great choices and the cap sleeves are too cute but I’d have to say it is a bit short. And a white patent heel clashes a bit I think I would have gone with a soft pink in a material with no sheen/shine since the dress has some.”

Haley Beets: “It’s like a sassy version of Lucy Liu’s floral ball gown. So cute and perfect for her age!”

Lilly Collins


In what appears to be moments before a Burlesque act (we’re guessing!) Ms. Collins served up some serious retro dame hair and  appliqué. While a dress like this may be reserved for masters like Dita Von Teese, we applaud Lily for giving us a mid-week boost of fabulousness. Thoughts?

Heather Roni: “Hair and shoes are fantastic, and the dress, while definitely not “drab”, isn’t my cup of tea.”

Megan Montoya: “Absolutely FABULOUS!!!”

Robin Tysoe: “So, I like it, but the dress has an issue. The appliqué needs to come down 3 inches and then it would be perfect.”

Olivia Munn


We love any gal who executes a corset at random. Ms. Olivia Munn was spotted in this lacy little number and we swooned a little. Effortless hair, killer shoes and a splash of lace – sounds like our Saturday nights, dears. Take it away, girls!

Frank Marter: “Looks like she forgot to put on a blouse to cover up her corset.”

Maggie Bell Putnam: “She needs a jacket or shrug. Love the punch of red in the shoes!”

Karen Taylor: “Do not pass Go, do not collect 200 dollars.”

Michelle Dockery


The “Downton Abbey” finished off our week with a fabulous little pop of Mod! What a sassy little haircut and we are big fans of a nice Tangerine splash on any red carpet. She gave us a touch of Megan Draper and we loved it! Hit it, ladies!

Jessie Crowe: “Very mod. I wish they had taken her picture on a contrasting background so we could see it better.”

Elizabeth Green: “Love the dress, but it needs gogo boots”

Randi Jensen: “Fab” (concise, darling.)

It was a shorter week since we spent Labor Day in a one-piece at the beach, so we were short of opinions this week! But join us next week as we take a five day look at our latest batch of fab or drab stars!
