Fab Or Drab At The Democratic National Convention

All of the fabbest and drabbest looks of the DNC! Check 'em out.

Posted on September 5, 2012, at 10:27 p.m. ET

FAB: This lady wearing a straight-brimmed Obama hat

An undeniably cute and fab look!

DRAB: Donkey head lady

Okay you tried, BUT NOT HARD ENOUGH. I want glitter on that donkey or something.

FAB: This Minnie Mouse Obama/Biden ear hat

Love the use of the mouse ears. I can find zero signs of drab in this one. ZERO.

DRAB: This guy with a spiky blonde wig visor

This violates every rule in fab or drab. Visors + Guy Fieri hair are the #1 and #2 most drabbest things in my book. DRAB.

FAB: This.

Those glasses and that giant hat are all i need in life.


DEAR GOD. As a supporter of jorts, I am appalled by this "getup." Vile is an understatement!

FAB: This dog

Cute scarf! Love the fit. Fabbed.

DRAB: This dog

You put me to sleep with this. Druhhh-ab!

FAB: A tiny hat

As you may know, tiny hats are always fab. End of story.

DRAB: Red lady

This violates my "Wearing The Appropriate Color To Your Convention" rule. I guess this lady didn't get the memo! Drab!

FAB: This blazer with googly eyes

So fab I can't even take it!!!!! In fashion, sometimes it's the little things that count.

FAB: This pose

Sometimes it's not even about the clothes, it's about the attitude! I love this ham!

DRAB: This sequined visor


DRAB: This color mess

Neon mixed with rainbow is always a big fat flop! A fashion no!

DRAB: (Another) 1920s guy

Wrong era, dude!

FAB: This Barack and Michelle silhouette vest

I know this violates my "Right Color At The Right Convention" rule, but I'm a sucker for a good silhouette vest.

DRAB: This rainbow tentacle hat

Like, what is this? WHAT. IS. THIS?! It's like his hat got in a fight with some rainbow-colored octopus and lost. Drab.

FAB: This lady wearing a flag

I just love a lady in a flag!

DRAB: Garland America necklace lady

It's not Christmas! Leave it in the attic, lady!

FAB: Obama yarmulke boy

A twist to a traditionally simple item of clothing. Def fab.

DRAB: Yes we can yes we can yes we can yes we can yes we can vest

Okay, we get it already!

FAB: Bee lady

Love her attention to detail. I also love her donkey pin because it looks like a unicorn, and unicorns are mega fab.

DRAB: This priest

Where are your shoes?!

FAB: Lady in blue

I love vibrant things. Fab!

DRAB: Steampunk pin seller dude

No, no, no. We (pin sellers) don't do platforms anymore.

FAB: This cowboy from Idaho

Another example of attitude owning style. Take note gentleman, own your fabness! It's in you all.

DRAB: This street preacher

Burlap is so last year.

FAB: Tie dye man

Love the matching combo. Works for me!

DRAB: This occupy guy's pants

I can't with this. I simply can't.

FAB: Texas cane man

Love the cane-tail (cane detail). Very fab! I also love the flair.

FAB: Loretta Harper

Loretta, you went above and beyond. I wish I could give you more than this little "fab."

FRAB: This hat

Remember, Frab = fab and drab combined.

So anyways, let me explain my choice on this one. I love the effort, I really do. I love the concept, and I've even warmed up to beanie babies on hats. It's just the execution. TAKE THE TAGS OFF YOUR BEANIE, THEY AREN'T WORTH ANYTHING ANYMORE.

FAB: Buffalo soldier dude

Gold suspenders are big right now.


Again with the red, but tiny hats are always in. Also, the peace sign is a cute little detail. Good effort.

FAB: Obobblehead hat



It's creative, but not really a thing. Like, who wears license plates anymore?!

FAB: This Michelle Obama dress

Love this choice! I was getting so sick of seeing "Obama" all over everything, and then I saw this dress. It's unconventional and different. FAB!

FAB: Uterus hat girl

It's a uterus... on a hat. Fab!


I love the Obama logo detail, I just can't do the red. Frab for sure.

FAB: Feather hat Obama lady

Colors are in this season, and this hat is FAB.

The end.
