How’s that for a week starter? Miss Dita was spotted at the Melbourne Cup last week in this FABULOUS ensemble- complete with her signature Phillip Treacy hat! The cup is a little something like Derby Day here in the states and the divine Von Teese really did bring it. Let’s see what you thought:

Welcome back, darlings! Did you miss us? We’ve just finished up starching our petticoats and we’re just about ready to greet this week- stiletto’s first! Splash on some Shalimar and come walk with us as we peek into your divine opinions from last week!

Natalie Portman

Ms. Portman arrived early in the week with a full gala-skirt and a chic little Hepburn-style top. Both nifty & fifties, gals! We particularly love the shape of the skirt paired with such a simple, albeit classic, top! However, that metallic fabric may be a little too space age for such a petite gal. Let’s see what you had to say, dames:

Why hello, darlings! Did you miss us? We were gone last week attending a makeup and hosiery application seminar, but we are back this week for your weekly recap of all things fab and all things drab! Let’s jump right in!

Lucy Liu

Our favorite of Charlie’s Angels, Ms. Liu was spotted in this stunning little number- complete with a cheeky little stripe contrast! We ask this every time we see Lucy: where has she been hiding!? While we asses her hair, let’s see what you dames had to say.

Brad Davis: “Try watching Elementary. An awesome show and cast. I love Lucy..”

Ellen Lee: “She’s been busy being Miss Watson. “

Kerry Washington

kerry+washington

Wave politely to Ms. Kerry, gals! She put on dots just for your viewing pleasure. The “Scandal” star was “spotted” in this little number, complete with a ladylike neckline and fully gathered skirt. Retro, simple and fabulous. Let’s hear some opinions, gals!

Yvette Chavez: “So much better than the other one she wore the other day.”

Charlene Green: “FAB. I would have picked a more retro hairstyle however.”

Michelle Rojas: “Yes to that dress. And bigger yes to those SHOES!!”

Sandra Bullock

sandra+bullock

Well look at Ms. Sandy! The star of “Gravity” was giving Ginger Roger’s legs a run for their money in this little lace number, wasn’t she! The 1960′s brought us the mini-skirt and Ms. Bullock was glad to remind us of that.  Also, everyone should be required to wear those shoes and that shade of lipstick once in their life. Hit it, gals!

Leslie Dangan: “100% FAB!!!”

Joann DeLuca: “WOW WEE”

Laurel Hayward: “Too short. I know she has great legs and all, just too short for my taste on someone over 35. I guess I am a prude!”

Olivia Wilde
olivia+wilde

Ms. Wilde arrived later in the week to tell us all about the wonder of pants, gals! Olivia was giving us some major 1940s fashion- complete with a crisp white blouse, khaki pants and STUNNING hair! We wholeheartedly approve this message. Thoughts?

Dianne Ayers: “Gorgeous!”

Leslie Dengan: “I’m with April McCool, they need to be hemmed. So they go straight to the ground w/o bunching. (or looking like a tripping hazard. Hehe) Don’t get me wrong- I love her look here, and it’s FABULOUS!”

Laura Beth Yates: “I love these pants! Can you make them in Black, Red, and Taupe? Come on Unique Vintage, darlings! Don’t let me down here!”

Diana Agron

diana+agron

Ms. Agron closed out the week with this fabulous 1930s floral frock! A stunningly stark black & white print, complete in a retro, bias style cut! Again, we have to make a case for more fabulous hair. A can of hairspray would have been the cure here, gals! Opinions! Let’s have ‘em!

Gretchen Kelly: “I don’t know if I like it in floor length. Short or angled maybe.. Even ankle length would have been nicer”

Dianne Ayers: “Yes, she needs black gloves as well!”

Well there you have it, dames! Make sure to join us next Monday as we recap yet another week of fab or drab!
