He might be your designer of the year, but, really, he's ours too. When we asked you to choose the best designer of 2010, the majority of you chose the man behind some of the sexiest silhouettes and favorite red carpet looks, and we couldn't agree more. Aside from being as genuine and personable as he is talented, Prabal's had quite a year: he's dressed Oprah, the first lady, Diane Kruger, Demi Moore, Blake Lively, Leighton Meester, and the list goes on. He also earned a spot as a CFDA Award finalist. At this point, is there a reason at all that Prabal Gurung shouldn't be the designer of year? We didn't think so.

Nicky Hilton grabbed some Starbucks in LA looking chic in her casual outfit. She wore some of her staples (like her tried-and-true Proenza bag and Ray-Ban Wayfarers), but we've never seen her in Sauce's Karl Lagerfeld tee. Shop all of those pieces, with all the rest, to mimic Nicky's errand-running style.
There are only three days left until New Year's Eve, and if you're looking to turn up the heat, you won't have to look any further for inspiration than Beyoncé Knowles. She is an expert at keeping things supersexy, and whether she's on stage, backstage, or gracing the red carpet, she always sizzles. Get her recent red-hot look with a sassy crimson dress — extra points if it's tied with a bow — and black peep-toe heels. For an unexpected pop, add purple jeweled earrings and a sparkly cocktail ring. Click on the items to shop.
LeAnn Rimes went shopping in Calabasas, CA, in an outfit that was both simple and sweet. From her cream-colored v-neck sweater, to her skinny jeans and knee-high boots, there wasn't a lot not to love; but, we're especially obsessed with her Diane von Furstenberg Stephanie bag. Shop that, with her other pieces, to achieve the total LeAnn look.
Emma Roberts rocked a casual but oh-so-cute outfit on a recent shopping trip in West Hollywood. Of note are her suede booties and breton-striped sweater, but her black braided hobo, plastic aviators, and skinny jeans are worth purchasing too. A basic brown shopping bag will make the look complete. Get it all now.
When it comes to dressing for family gatherings, it's always better to stay on the conservative side — you know, to avoid hearing, "You're wearing that?". Fab reader brunetteblogging kept it short and sweet during Christmas in a lacy Topshop dress, black tights and ankle booties, and super-pretty gold jewelry. It's a totally cute look that's still appropriate for hanging out with loved ones.
Congrats to brunetteblogging!

- Elle France dedicated its entire April issue to plus-size women.
- Forever21 changed their plus-size line from Faith 21 to Forever 21+.
