The Week In Fab Or Drab: July 15th-19th


That’s right, gals! It’s the height of summer and the lady stars of Hollywood stepped out in their fabbest and drabbest this week! As per usual, you dames had some opinions and we loved hearing them. Let’s take a peek back at this week’s highs and lows!

Eva Mendes 



Ms. Eva Mendes was beating the heat in NYC this week in this romper-headscarf combo! Personally, we thought the old gal looked like she was late for her screen test to be a chorus girl in the latest MGM Motion Picture, but you gals had other ideas for Ms. Mendes.

Amanda Carlson: “I’m confused. I never though the lovely Eva could look frumpy but here we have it.”

Kristina Sawyer: “A bit busy, If the romper was one color either blue or white it would be perfect.”

Sharkbait Denise: “Confusing, loud and drab all at the same time. Her sunglasses are lovely. I think with her beauty, she’d be fab in a potato sack dress… but not that frock.”

Dame Helen Mirren



Dame Helen Mirren arrived on the scene this week to remind us that the golden age of Hollywood was alive and well- and it was living fabulously within our favorite Brit. From the dress to the accessories, this dame hit it right out of the park.

Gretchen Edholm: “My idol. Love this color on her and the way the fabric crosses around the waistline is very figure flattering. She looks spectacular!”

Shanna Schorsch: “Helen Mirren couldn’t look drab if she tried! The woman is class personified.”

Darlene Wendel- Nitzschkke: “Divine as always, Dame Mirren!”

Nicole Kidman


Make way, darlings! Nikki Kidman arrived this week to show off a killer pair of shoes and proper sheath dress application. We must say, the gal is really coming into her own these days on the style front and Princess Grace is smiling from her walk-in closet in the sky. Let’s see what you dolls had to say!

Margie Swearingen Mijares: “How can anything with so much bead work possibly be drab??”

Anna Hernandez-Twitty: “Fab…& always a lady!”

Michelle Clark: “I have yet to see her look bad” (Google the 80s, darling!)

Naomi Campbell


Supermodel supreme, Naomi Campbell, stopped by this week to give us good face and harness her inner rage. We thought there was something fabulously 60s about this dress and we were thrilled to see this gal hasn’t aged a day since her “Freedom” days. Hit it, ladies!

Amber Rials: “GORGEOUS! But ONLY attempt this dress if you are a supermodel.”

Gretchen Kelly: “It was listed on one of those fashion flop sections of msn.. I believe it was described as a pagoda.”

Stephanie Cass: “beautiful lady…..extremely ugly personality”  (mince meat, darlings. Never words!)

Dita Von Teese:



And lastly, Miss Dita Von Teese graced us with her presence this week to give us an eyeful of fabulous right before the weekend! A dotted wonder, if we ever saw one! And a “dot” purse to match? We all seemed to be in unison on this one:

Monica Ramirez: “You could throw a potato sack on her and she would make it look fantastic!!”

Kerry Lee Dickey: “LOVE! FAB! I love the little twisty- thing at her waist- line. Very flattering and subtle, too.”

Dee Sandelin: “Flowy – Feminine – She wears it well”

There you have it, gals! Join us next Monday when we take a peek at the latest batch of musings and opinions from our devoted dames! Didn’t get a chance to weigh in on Facebook last week? Make your opinion heard below!
