More than 38 Million Americans tune into to watch Senator Barack Obama accepted his historic Presidential Democratic nomination. (Barack became the first African-American to be officially nominated as a candidate for U.S president by a major party.)

84,000 squeezed into Denver's Invesco Field to hear what Barack had to say. Ironically, Barack's speech was done on the 45th anniversary of MLKJr's "I Have A Dream" speech...

In A Word...Fab has Barack's speech transcript!

Michelle shocked plenty of her fashion-obsessed fans when she stepped out in this Thakoon Resort 2009 dress.

Michelle for the first time did NOT wear a design from Maria Pinto. Michelle instead rock her printed dress with three Erickson Beamon broaches. Thakoon Panchiqul was delighted about Michelle's dress choice: "I am incredibly honored that Michelle Obama chose to wear a dress from my collection on such a historical night for her, her family and this country."

Afterwards Barack was joined by his family and vice president running mate Joe Biden on the stage...


Jennifer Hudson ripped (re: did the damn thing) the National Anthem as requested by Barack. What do you think?

Yesterday was Michael Jackson's 50th birthday. He made a rare phone interview with "Good Morning America". Here are a few of his accomplishments that I'm happy to be apart. I may be half his age technically but my earliest moment of MJ started right around his "Bad" era but I grew up to appreciate his "Off The Wall" and "Thriller" records. Sit back and enjoy the King of Pop at his very best...

I've put off this fashion comparison for so long. Nicky Hilton and Estelle both wore this strapless colorblock Herve Leger dress but who pull off the look best?

The dress retails for $990 and it's sold out at Intermix! Grab Nicky's Gucci Hysteria cluch for $675.
