Style has moved! come with us to mtv news »

Not to be dramatic, but this has been Beyoncé's YEAR. She broke the news of her pregnancy at the 2011 VMAs, gave THE MOST KILLER performance at the Billboard Awards, and continues to release one stylish music video after another. We can BARELY keep up with Pregnancé, so in her honor, we have three to-die-for costumes that you can wear this Halloween—and, yes, two of them include a super sexy baby bump. So take THAT, other boring hot chick costumes. *finger snap*

1. COUNTDOWN

The '60s-inspired looks from the "Countdown" video were sooo uh-mazing that we knew we had to cop one of them for Hallow's Eve. Our fave was the shot of multiple Beyoncés in primary color mock turtleneck leotards with a wide-brim black and white hat. Gather your girls (and gams!) to re-create this look in a snap, and don't forget some choreographed dance moves. (Pregnancé belly optional.)

+ Blue Leotard: Capezio Women's Turtleneck Long Sleeve Leotard in Royal ($26)
+ Red Leotard: Capezio Women's Turtleneck Long Sleeve Leotard in Red ($29.95)
+ Black Leotard: Womens New Team Essentials Turtleneck Leotard in Black ($29.50)
+ Green Leotard: Womens New Team Essentials Turtleneck Leotard in Kelly Green ($29.50)

Justin Bieber Robot Arm

What the WHAT? We just peeped Justin Bieber's Instagram, and were greeted with, um, this. The Biebs. Wearing a robot arm. And spiky hair. We barely even recognized our dude with his hair so closely shaved on the sides and his strands sticking straight up, but also WHAT IS THIS ALL ABOUT?! There's no caption on either of these photos and our imagination is running WILD trying to figure out what's going on here. He's also sitting in room filled with rocking horses (???) wearing acid wash harem pants, lace-up boots, a long white tee, and a black vest. There's also some cray wallet chain (possibly suspenders?) happening, but we won't question it. What we WILL question, though, is why JB is nibbling on his robot thumb. That cannot taste good.

The metal hand looks like it lights up (kind of SWEET) and extends from his fingertips to his elbow. Even though we're utterly confused, we will say one thing—it reminds of us of ANOTHER robot hand we've seen before!

The week of All Hallow's Eve is upon us! Only a few more days remain for you to secure your Halloween costume, and as the big night approaches, we're offering up some fool-proof outfit ideas that will have you turning heads (and we do mean a full Exorcist-style 360; it is Halloween after all). While she may have opted for normal human clothes while concentrating on a full-blown skeleton face for her own costume, Katy Perry's day-to-day style is a veritable hotbed of Halloween inspiration. With an the armful of music video releases and her status as a dress-up mastermind, it wasn't hard to pinpoint a few show-stopping (AND easily replicable) KP looks.

1. GLAM T.G.I.F.

Katy's charmingly awkward alter ego Kathy Beth Terry gets a glam '80s-tastic makeover in her 'Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)' music video, and we found all the tools you'll need to achieve one of your own. Slip into a whole lot of neon in this magenta crop top and lime green skirt (or this one), right down to the mis-matched patent pumps (don't worry, the heels are the same height, so you won't be wobbly!). Swipe on some colorful frosted makeup, envelope your teased up crimpy 'do in a cloud of Aqua Net (for authenticity), and don't forget your party cup!

OK, party people, we're getting CLOSE to Halloween, and we mean close to the week-of when everyone starts to panic and stores run out of costumes. BUT never fear, we've got your monster costume on lockdown. MONSTER, you say? Ohhhh, yes. It's not really Halloween anymore, people, it's GAGAWEEN! Thus, we present a plethora of Lady Gaga-inspired looks that will help you pay Little Monster homage to Mama Monster's biggest style hits. From a fancy side-ponytail zombie to smoky Jo Calderone, there's a paw-pumping look for everybody (including a few for you lazy monSTAHS). When people ask who you're dressed up as (duh, as if they wouldn't know), just tell 'em you were born this way, OK? Yeah, we went there.

1. HAIR MONSTER

So, a running motif in the costume lexicon of Our Lady of G is HARRRRR, and lots of it. Gaga was recently seen out and about in London in this V-shape hair dress and matching hair sombrero, which also has the addition of truly Halloween-y accessory, a handheld picture of The Bride of Frankenstein. This look requires a little bit of work, in that you'll need to glue copious amounts of hair onto a floppy hat and leotard. (It doesn't have to be exact, just get it on there.) But you can throw your own hair under a mint-green wig and add some crimson lips and dark shades. Voilà! Extend your arms to wee babies on their trick-or-treating routes and bellow, "COOOOOME TO MAMA MONSTAAAAAAAH!"

+ Hat: Dorfman Women's Big Brim Ribbon Hat ($24.99) - Decorate with hair from a long black wig like the Extra Long Godiva Black Wig ($15.99)
+ Wig: Green Glamour Wig ($11.88)
+ Sunglasses: Black Original Cat Eye Sunglasses ($10.99)
+ Vest: Alloy Mongolian Faux Fur Vest ($51.92)
+ Gloves: Black Faux Leather Elbow Length Zipper Gloves ($15.99)
+ Bodysuit: American Apparel Gloria-V Bodysuit ($44)
+ Cover Up: Fringed Shorts ($29.95) or GoJane Layered Fringe Shorts ($32.80)
+ Picture: Bride of Frankenstein Portrait Poster ($6.95)—Though the original art that Lady Gaga is holding ("Mother Monster" by LukeyGore13) doesn't appear to be for sale, you could try drawing or photoshopping your own version.
+ Hosiery: Leg Avenue Industrial Fishnet Tights in Black ($7)
+ Shoes: Forever 21 Studded Stiletto Heels ($24.80)
+ Lipstick: M.A.C Viva Glam Lipstick in I (Intense brownish blue-red Matte) ($14.50)

If you're feeling girly (and hungry) go the Nicki Minaj chicken wing route and re-create her '80s studded tutu ensemble from the iHeartRadio Music Festival. All you need is some pink spray paint and a chain to re-create the necklace (We found you the chicken wing. You're welcome.) or you can just buy the EXACT one she's wearing if you've got the dough. Don't forget to put your wig into pigtails like Nicki does, and, don't worry, that facial expression is not mandatory.

It's that time of year again, the hands down BEST season in all of fashion: fall! Let's face it, summer's fantastic but staying cool is THE priority, so wearing gauzy dresses and flimsy tees are par for the course. Then there's winter, where you're swaddled in so much insulation that you can barely bend your arms, but autumn.... *swoon* That brisk chill, the whiff of apple cider or burning wood, 'tis the season for truly shining, sartorially speaking, because you can finally stunt your layering skills!

The trees are bewitching colors, everyone's hair looks glossy and frizz-free, and you can rummage through your closets in search of your favorite bit of outerwear kit—THE FALL JACKET. Whether it's a denim piece that you layer over/under and wear every day, or a moto-inspired twill number that fits you sublimely, or a blazer that you dress down with leggings, the critical detail is that this article needs to be versatile. And what’s more adaptable than cotton? It’s not just khakis, jeans or tees, it’s trenches, patch-pocket car coats, and shrunken sateen varsity jackets. So we hit the streets of New York to check in with the city's sharpest dressers to inquire what they loved best about their coats.

Pssssssssssssssssssst... And on the topic of sharp dressing, don't forget to submit your best outfit to Cotton's Style Search that runs until the 26th of this month! GET IT.

Rihanna on the November 2011 issue of Esquire

Rihanna wore literally nothing but leaves and dirt on the cover of 'Esquire', and we wondered if this was the best way to showcase the "Sexiest Woman Alive." Really, guys, dirt on her face rather than a cream blush, crimson lip, and something McQueen?

Lady Gaga accessorized with a red telephone on the NY streets of SoHo. She looked amazing but clearly had no service and was kinda busy in those downtown environs.

Beyoncé rocked two 'Harper's Bazaar' covers shot by Terry Richardson and opened up about her maternity line and relationship with Jay-Z. Also, she looked mega-GORGE in the accompanying behind-the-scenes video. She runs the world!

Nicki Minaj wore a CRAY outfit that could have been cute if not for a totally out of place plushie shrug. We broke it down and offered some suggestions.

Rain announced that he was going into the military and we started mourning his luxury suiting and spectacular monogrammed luggage editorials that were his life (and ours) pre-Jarhead. Stay safe and away from thunder, bb!

I love these two as a couple. What a festive way to celebrate two important events in their life. Mariah looks like a dream.
