Sometimes, whilst driving through the maze that is Los Angeles, ones destination is unknown. Such was the case a couple times during my jaunt through LA for the Chanel party. But that's LA for you. So, I thought of this bubbly song. Very New Wavey, Missing Persons produced a few hits — how can you resist the big-haired lead singers Barbie voice? She is a hot platinum mess with her pink streaks and leather get up with white fur pelts. The rest of the band favors big hair too — it was the '80s, after all. The strange settings and strange characters create a dream-like world, similar to Annie Lennox's "Sweet Dreams" video. A word of advice: never hesitate to stop and ask for directions! Life is too short and fabulous.

When there's a SATC party, you know Fab will be there. We recently attended Macy's Sex and the City shopping party in honor of the upcoming release of the movie . We were right at home in the Impulse department and had a blast as we sipped, ate, and shopped to our heart's content.
The party was filled with bubbly, yummy SATC-inspired apps, and of course, clothes! Models were dressed to imitate Carrie, Charlotte, Samantha, and Miranda's style and each leading lady even had their own closet filled with clothing from the highly anticipated movie's featured designers. The next invite-only soirée will be in Costa Mesa next week on June 5 at the Macy's South Coast Plaza — fun, fun, fun!

While leather jackets toughen up your look, denim kinds cool you down. Every now and again, when you're feeling the hippie vibe, consider this Vintage '70s Cropped Denim Jacket, XS. I envision it perfectly complementing a floral mini dress as well as a sexy LBD. Either way, a denim jacket is a great way to make a look a smidgen more nonchalant.
The current bidding price is at $9.99 and the auction ends on Wednesday, June 4. Good luck and happy bidding!
In case you've been MIA, the whole Sugar gang finally saw the Sex and the City movie. But don't worry, I'm not going to utter a word about the story line. What I am going to open my trap about are the wardrobes of the fabulous foursome, courtesy of Patricia Field. Almost all of Carrie's outfits were dead on and gush worthy, but it was a little strange to see Miranda always dressed up and accessorized. I guess she's grown up and now appreciates fashion! Because I'm Fab, I was instantly able to identify what each character was wearing as soon as I saw it. Not! Let's just say I have friends in high places who were amazing enough to share their wealth of wardrobe knowledge. And what an excessive amount of wealth it is — dive in!

I was amongst my people last night at the Chanel store opening party in LA, or so I like to think so. Chanel employees, Chanel lovers, Chanel aficionados, oh, and gorgeous actresses and models ching-chinged wearing the coveted label. It was a tough call but budding blonde and 27 Dresses star, Malin Ackerman won me over in her deep burgundy sparkly Chanel jumpsuit. Just when I thought I'd seen my fill of disco-era jumpsuits, this girl was hopping around the Chanel party in super style.
And that smile — amazing! She's like a cross between two other Fab favorites: Cameron Diaz and Kate Hudson. To top off the daring look, she chose an icey plastic Chanel clutch, black wooden platforms, and tiered diamond earrings and a cosmic cocktail ring by Chanel Fine Jewelry. She's got the look.

Paris Hilton is no stranger to designing clothes — or rather, giving her approval on her clothing line — but now she's putting her world tour with boyfriend Benji Madden on hold to create a debut denim line with Dollhouse. This time around, she will also serve as model for the brand. The line will include skinny and wide-leg jeans, as well as shirts, dresses, and more ranging from $30 to $100. The pieces will first debut at Kitson, where the rest of Paris' clothing is sold, and will head to Nordstrom and Macy's this Fall.
Here, the heiress arrived in Tokyo wearing Marc by Marc Jacobs' Gem Shirtdress ($235, originally $388). Doesn't she look like the hostess with the mostess?
Sex and the City came to a close after six unforgettable seasons. We were taken on quite an emotional roller coaster in this final season. For Carrie, Berger was out, Big was calling again, and her new Lovah, Aleksandr Petrovsky was showering her with mature affection. Charlotte was living happily ever after with Harry, Miranda tied the knot, and how can we forget that Samantha was diagnosed with cancer and Smith was steadfastly by her side. Carrie's spontaneous move to Paris with Aleksandr was most shocking to me. Of course, picturesque Paris is every girl's dream, but Carrie was such a deep-rooted New Yorker. But in the end, Mr. Big, and NYC, called Carrie back home. Home sweet home, indeed! Check out my other Sex and the City style slideshows!
Halt the presses — Kate Moss is smiling, wide! The model spent an evening celebrating the opening of a new London art exhibition, and though she was dressed in all black, her sense of humor was anything but morose. Kate generally wears a dark palette, but we rarely see her in head-to-toe black. The patent-leather coat adds a much-needed shine and the pointy black lace-up boots give her a witchy vibe. Wicked!
