Clear your throats and help me sing happy birthday to one of our favorite supermodels Gisele Bundchen, who turns 28 today. The Brazilian is an amazing chameleon — from doe-eyed model to world-famous sexy supermodel — and we can't wait to see what fierceness she'll bring in this next year of life. May you have a happy, healthy, and fashionable year Gisele!

Go Maggie. This week's Fab favorite was decided earlier in the week when I saw this beauty in this Dries Van Noten beauty at The Dark Knight premiere. And yes, I've already seen the movie and it is a-mazing. Maggie and Dries are a great match. They are both unconventional and beautiful in their unique way, oh, and wonderfully experimental. Like Maggie just claimed, she cares what the media thinks about the way she dresses, and I only have praise. If you're listening Maggie: well done!
The simple, draped silhouette of this black strapless dress is set off by the asymmetrical fiery floral print. I can't help but admire her in front of the blazing The Dark Knight poster; it's too good. She pulled her hair up and wore her signature red lips. Her gold jewelry is not to be forgotten; modern and funky. I strained my eyes to get a better look at her shoes as they're not plain, they appear to be Dries, too.

If you're a traditional gal, chances are you won't move in with your husband-to-be until he is, well, your husband. Sorry to burst your love bubble, but living together means sharing a closet — gasp! For any gal who is overly protective of her clothes (present), this reality is downright scary. But don't reconsider your commitment now; I've got some solutions to ease your closet-sharing fears.
- Since you'll probably be moving your clothes into a new closet, it's the ideal time to get rid of stuff you haven't worn in over a year. Honestly, if you haven't worn it in that long, you probably won't wear it again. Plus, even more reason to buy new stuff!
- There's nothing like hanging your lovely clothes on pretty and scented hangers. Buy a bunch and you'll keep your section of the closet ultra feminine.
- You can barely count how many handbags you own. It's OK — that's why buying a hanging purse organizer is useful. If your husband finds your purses lying on the floor, he won't get that you and your bags are inseparable. And if that happens, you won't be able to defend yourself when buy that new bag to have.

Contrary to what Maxim magazine wants us to believe (and achieve), most of us don't have bosoms the size of ripe cantaloupes. IttyBittyBra.com not only accepts small breasts, it embraces and endorses them. Finally! Check out their stylish and comfortable bras, made to fit sizes AA, A, and B. They have signature and couture styles, as well as camisoles and panties. If you've got it — itty bittys, that is — flaunt it!
Transformation — Drew Barrymore
Drew Barrymore is all about flower power. After famously rebounding from her troubled teens, the former child star took on Hollywood with daisies in her hair and a dreamy demeanor. "We as girls have that Cinderella fantasy of dress-up," she has said. "So whenever you get the opportunity to have people make your face up and do your hair and put you in an outfit, it's a fantasy."
When there's salt, there's pepper. Hot and cold. Light and dark. You catch my drift. In fashion, we are always presented with another side of the coin. If Ice Ice Baby isn't your tune, try watching Tales From the Dark Side.
Some of these designers always cater to the dark lords of fashion — London's Gareth Pugh, Givenchy's Ricardo Tisci. A few just felt like dipping in murky waters for Fall: Julien Macdonald's dark glam rockin' looks and Gucci's fabulous folky getups. Meanwhile, Alexander Wang is proving to be the connoisseur of downtown (dis)taste. But no one told a tall tale like Ann Demeulemeester and her posh tatterdemalions (left).

Color experimentation is a wonderful thing so if you haven't tried it yet, let Becki Newton guide you. In fact, it's all about inspiration — doesn't this look remind you of Cameron Diaz's fuchsia/turquoise Dior ensemble at The Met's Institute Gala last year? At the TCA All-Star party, Becki wore a purple ruffle dress, but the exciting part is that she accessorized with turquoise and green earrings, and turquoise peep-toe pumps. Pair unexpected hues and let the color experimentation begin!
