It’s official: Ms. Green is America’s favorite M&M’S character. On July 27, Mars Chocolate North America announced that Ms. Green nabbed nearly a quarter of the 3.4 million votes cast by fans on www.mms.com, defeating fellow M&M’S characters Red, Yellow, Blue and Orange.

“Surprised? Darling, please,” Ms. Green said, reacting to the news. “I’m fabulous, and America knows it.”

To help celebrate Ms. Green’s new status, music superstar Sean “Diddy” Combs will host a special party in her honor in New York City this September. The exclusive guest list will include the winner of the M&M’S Party Like Diddy Sweepstakes, B.C. Ashmall-Liversidge of Brooklyn, N.Y., and 20 of her friends. Ashmall-Liversidge will have a hand in planning the bash with Diddy, who met with her in Los Angeles this week to begin preparations.
