Although we don't see shots snapped of him that often (except recent appearances in Vogue and on Oprah), Norman was the big winner for celebrity pet of the year!The corgi-terrier mix was your top pick (with 40 percent of the votes) and I have to agree that his face is pretty darn adoro. He's got the best of both breeds with the long, stout corgi body and the scruffy terrier hair – Jennifer Aniston's pooch is too precious! Recap all the results of our network wide polls and happy endings to 2008!
Honestly, what did we do before Gossip Girl? Even though GG isn't a fashion show per se, we love it most for the highly stylized wardrobe. The characters and the lives of the Upper East Siders are all fun and games, but we can't help but be fixated on every outfit. We give weekly tribute to the wardrobe, and deliver fashion quizzes. So are you surprised Gossip Girl is our favorite FABTV show? Flip through for our favorite looks we gossiped about this year. xoxo.

I've gotta say that pre-chewing food for a furry friend is a touch eccentric . . . and a luxury I don't plan on giving to my precious pet anytime soon. Nevertheless, with over half the votes, most of us agree that this story was 2008's most peculiar! Refresh your memory with a video of the tale that takes the cake (or kibble?) when you read more
I used to play in my mom's jewelry all the time — I still do. If this is you too, you probably voted for a statement necklace as your favorite trend of '08. The reader favorite was over-the-top shoes, and you know me, so this was a tough call. Then, Team Fab looked at each other and we were all wearing cool, unique statement necklaces so the decision was made. Clutches came in close after statement necklaces and we're all about those, too. What can we say: We love all the trends we presented. But glittering, ornate necklaces stole our hearts and our necks this year.
Rachel Bilson (last year's winner of celebrity pet mommy of the year) always seems to treat her cute furball to the latest goodies. This lead of Thuman Murman is super cute and useful so it's no wonder this was the celebrity "found" item you liked the best. All dogs need a leash, or several, so check out the sweet selection offered from the New York-based retailer, Ella Dish.
She's cute. She's sophisticated. She's approachable. She's nothing like her character on Gossip Girl, Blair Waldorf. Well, OK, they're both cute and sophisticated. We agree that Leighton Meester has the best Celebrity Style of the year. She constantly impresses in fun frocks and smart jackets and isn't afraid to play with color or show a little skin. She's a girl's girl who attended Fashion Week in September and always has a smile on her face. What's not to love?
No one's arguing that the handbag designer of the year is Chanel. Balenciaga was close behind, but Chanel wins both your and my vote. Karl has a way of reinventing the classic with every collection. And, he manages to throw in comic relief, poking fun at the fabulous world of fashion. They may be some of the steepest priced bags out there, but we're all lusting over Chanel.
I'm constantly sniffing out stuff from a variety of sources (both online and off) so I tallied votes of your (pets') fave e-tailers. Seems like even when economic times are tough, your furry friends still get a treat . . . or five. The go-to spot: PetSmart. With locations across the country, and a huge online offering, I'm not surprised that this megastore was the megawinner.
Even though it barely came out on top of its original spoiled sweet or spoiled rotten poll, when asked what luxury item you'd most crave, the Penthouse Dog Potty was the big winner. I can see this personal indoor patch of grass being useful for city living, although I'd only wish it came with its own penthouse, too! Keep voting on all the Sugar Best of 2008 polls – there's still time to have your say!
Atelier Versace. Zac Posen. Marchesa. If you wore these designers on a regular basis you would probably be confident, too. But no one shined as brightly as Anne Hathaway this year. She proved herself to not only be a strong talent in movies like Get Smart and Rachel Getting Married, but a queen on the red carpet. At only 26, she manages to be both youthful and sophisticated. It helps that she has porcelain skin and a svelte figure, but really, her strength and natural beauty earn her the crown.
