Pantone has named emerald the color of 2013, and Kate Middleton is already trying out next year's hot hue! The Duchess of Cambridge was hospitalized for acute morning sickness, but Kate is back tending to her royal duties — and looking better than ever while doing so. For her first official posthospital appearance, Kate went with an emerald gown by Alexander McQueen. Watch today's Fab Flash for all the scoop! On Allison McNamara: Topshop top, Zara coat. Hair and makeup by Kasia Bohos.
Gossip Girl's epic six-season run has come to an end, and while the goodbye to our favorite Upper East Siders and Brooklynites may be bittersweet, we're taking this opportunity to dive right into one of the things this TV show did best: fashion. For the last five years, the cast has become a veritable lookbook for uptown vs. downtown styling, and we're all the luckier for it. Since day one, Blake Lively, as Serena van der Woodsen, has been the boho-chic complement to Leighton Meester's Blair Waldorf luxe rendition of ladylike prep. And, as the Monday night fixture proved seriously addictive, we've become privy to the importance of headband couture, must-have handbags, and some of the most gorgeous heels to ever grace primetime programming. Oh, did we mention the eye candy? Because Ed Westwick, Chace Crawford, and Penn Badgley certainly bring that in spades. Let's not waste another nostalgic moment — click through now for some of this season's best onscreen style.

Here’s a little soap “dish”— did you know that some types of lather, created from cleansing ingredients know as surfactants, has historically been seen as damaging to your skin? Look at the evidence: most so-called “mild” cleansers aren’t super-soaper-uppers; some lather-rific favorites can actually be quite drying. Until now. New Dove® Body Washes not only offer your skin the best care with a unique combination of gentle cleansing and NutriumMoisture technology, they also provide you with the best-ever shower experience, including rich lather that won’t strip your skin of essential nutrients. It’s all thanks to the addition of sodium cocoyl glycinate, an ultra-gentle cleanser which delivers rich lather that rinses cleanly and quickly.
So lather up—and check it out for yourself! But first click here to learn more about why Dove® Deep Moisture, Sensitive Skin, and Exfoliating Body Washes are the proven best care, and put them to the test against some of the most popular brands on the market.

Although we are sad to see our beloved Upper East Siders end their regal reign, the cast of Gossip Girl ends their sixth and final season on a supremely chic high note that is everything we would expect from our treasured trendsetters. Our favorite fashionistas gave us five years of designer duds, luxe handbags, posh accessories, and of course, lust-worthy shoes, and it will be difficult to fill the major fashion void in our hearts. But before we bid farewell to these modern-day masterminds, check out all of the fashions from season six, then shop their looks — including exact pieces — for yourself.
When it comes to styling up a polished yet playful party look, nobody does it quite like J.Crew — and with invitations coming in left and right, we thought it necessary to tap into the brand's signature quirky-cool aesthetic for the season ahead. We chatted with Tom Mora, J.Crew's head of women's design, to hear about the latest collection and get his expert tips on holiday party dressing — and boy, did we get a wealth of inspiration. Tom gave us his advice on taking a look from work to play, his favorite cocktail dress alternatives, and even gave us the inside scoop on the gifts that make creative director Jenna Lyons smile. See what he had to say below.
FabSugar: A lot of us end up going to holiday events straight from work — what are your tips for making an office look party-ready?
Tom Mora: There are a couple things that I think are easy fixes: throwing on a statement necklace or pair of earrings does an incredible job of making an outfit feel really special. In the same vein, we have really gorgeous suede pumps in the most exquisite colors, and it's really fun to walk into a party in a more muted black or gray outfit and then have people look down and see a bright shoe! I also think a really great lipstick color — a really red or poppy-colored lip — looks amazing and is an easy switch-up.
There are a million parties to go to all season, and we tend to get into our somber, dark clothes — but there's lots of color out there, and it's a great opportunity to experiment with brighter tones and mix and match them with hues like seafoam green, icy lilac, and citrus. Don't shy away from colors that you think don't work on you — those rules were made to be broken!

There were many standout accessories that celebrities showed off this year — wide-brim fedoras, top designer handbags, cat-eye sunglasses — but the one that swept the top slot was the sneaker. Everyone from Marion Cotillard to Gisele Bundchen to Irina Shayk to many more famous faces wore their favorite sporty sneakers from the likes of Isabel Marant and Ash with everything from jeans to leather pants to dresses to skirts. We have yet to see if the trend will live on in 2013, but in the meantime, take a look back at all the celebs that sported sneakers in 2012.
