Ashley Tisdale looked young and feminine at the 2010 The CW Upfronts in New York wearing a flirty Plastic Island strapless dress. To not take away from the detailing, she simply paired this mini with nude ankle strap pumps and layers of bangle bracelets for extra style. Shop her exact dress and other similar accessories now.
Lookie at Lauren walking the streets of LA minus The Hills' camera crews. It seems the former reality star is on Fab's wavelength — she's preparing for a Fabby Halloween in her black and orange ensemble. The dotted Ecote miniskirt is beyond adorable (and affordable!), and I love the way her tan belt and matching Marc by Marc Jacobs bag keep her from being too costumey.

From the swanky fireplace in the background to her perfectly put-together ensemble, litlstrawberry is purely polished. I love that her top half is super busy while her bottom half is bare. Can I have those shorts please? That whopping necklace and oversize sunnies make everything even better.
Congrats to litlstrawberry!
Everyone else, submit your looks and I might feature you on FabSugar!
R&B songstress Ciara showed up at BBC Radio One in London looking ferocious in skinny gray jeans, barely pink pocket tank, and slick, white blazer. Notice how the crinkly texture is unfussy while exotic Louis Vuitton sandals and sleek sunnies reveal her inner diva. What a cool juxtaposition — I like to call it fashion yin yang.
Plastic Island girls sure know how to have a good time. The Fall '09 Look Book has been released and it's one helluva stylish party. The dress code is quirky, fashion-forward, and above all, girlie. '80s-inspired ruffle frocks, draped harem pants, leather vests, strapless jumpsuits, and plaid shirts are just some of the pieces the attendees are decked out in. If it sounds like a unique jumble, it is. Shall we join?
I bet you have a friend or family member who's obsessed with Gossip Girl. I figured. This wannabe Blair Waldorf wishes she had the characters' lives, but since that's unlikely, their stuff will have to do.
This Hat Attack Wool Beret with Leather Bow ($45) will appeal to any preppy-chic girl in your life. It will make her feel like she's in NYC's Upper East Side, even in her bedroom. Fabulous.
The color of the moment has definitely got you all going grape! This week, you were bonkers for the royal hue and your Fab Finds showed it! Grape fitted dresses, grape blazers, and even grape ballet flats were all present. It all definitely puts me in the mood for a nice long swig of an old fashioned grape soda...

You surely remember this sought after Plastic Island dress Cameron Diaz wore a month ago. It was all the rage on the web! I had never heard of the brand before and I thank Cam for shedding some light.

Wow! Mandy just took her fashion sense up a notch for the filming of Oxygen network's special I Am Mandy Moore in NYC. She looks flirty and stylish in her Plastic Island black and white dots dress. And wise choice with the red patent strappies; they round out the look with a flash of color. Now only if she applies her new found fashion knowledge to her clothing line, Mblem.!
