EmotiStyle as toast for Halloween.

"Sexy" Sesame Street Halloween costumes may be a thing this year, but C'MON, guys...we can do so much better than that! After all, Halloween is all about flexing those creative DIY muscles, and wearing next to nothing in your scantily clad bunny outfit? Ehh...not exactly mindblowing (insert Mean Girls quote here). In a stroke of internet magic this morning, we discovered an amazingly awesome music video with the exact same message...and some rad dance moves to boot. The brilliantly-titled "Things You Can Be On Halloween Besides Naked!!!" comes courtesy of New York-based comedians EmotiStyle and is basically a hilarious how-to dress guide while still keeping your clothes on. Zipping through clever AND covered-up costume ideas like phone chargers, toast, and Louis CK, the outfit options in the clip are accompanied by zingers such as “You can just be a nurse. You don’t have to be a sexy nurse.” #Truth. So because we're obsessed (and wanted to pick their Halloween-y brains), we tracked down EmotiStyle's Shamikah and Molly to talk about the problems with costume shopping, Halloween dos and don'ts, and why fashion dreams rarely come in a plastic bag. See what they have to say after the jump!

Last night, in the greenroom of Webster Hall, New York City born-and-bred rapper Le1f suggests we go off into a corner, to what appears to be a closet, to do our interview. The dirty concrete room has a long bench upholstered in a dirty plaid and a thick armchair that looks like it would emit a cartoon puff of grime if you sat in it. Le1f sits on the bench and gestures to the chair in his sweet, raised-right way, "you take the nice chair," he says, but I opt for the bench beside him, fearing bedbugs and that the noise from the room beside us, where rapper Killer Mike is preparing to open MTV Hive's CMJ showcase, will impede my recording. Le1f is tall and handsome in a pair of maroon harem pants and navy bomber jacket, and he speaks in such a way that seems giggly and bashful, but in that somehow pointedly self-assured. After his breakout video, "Wut" made him an overnight sensation, both in the music press and in the fashion world, Le1f has been all over the place, playing shows, performing at New York Fashion Week (MTV Style caught up with him when he performed for Asher Levine), and appearing in media from Pitchfork to Gawker to Artinfo, who labeled him one of the new poster boys for so-called "gay rap." Le1f is certainly not afraid to make his sexual orientation known, although the label can be reductive as far as the actual music is concerned, so needless to say he's on the rise. We sat down with Le1f to discuss everything from his influences—musical and sartorial—and the possibility of a fashion collaboration between himself and Greedhead label founder and Das Racist member Himanshu Suri, something that we're crossing our fingers will actually happen (please, please). Read the q & a below, and prepare to fall in love.

Emma Roberts

It seems like every day there's a new designer x celebrity collaboration, but less ubiquitous are the moments when a star takes the backseat and serves as the creative inspiration and, in return, the promotional vehicle for a line or an individual piece. Such is the case with Emma Roberts and the limited edition sunglasses Nanette Lepore designed for her. Last night was the official launch of the Emma-inspired shades, and Roberts, Lepore, and Vogue Eyewear celebrated in style with an intimate party on the VIP floor of the 5th Avenue Sunglass Hut. (Yes, that's a thing that exists, and we have the pictures to prove it.) We caught up with Emma herself to get her reaction to the finished product and serving as Nanette's design inspiration.

It's not often that Kristen Stewart gives an interview that revolves purely around fashion and beauty— so rare, in fact, that we had to drop everything else were doing yesterday afternoon to watch the actress's Balenciaga interview go down as it was happening. And it's a good thing we did, because the 15-minute livestream Q&A was basically a crash course in Kristen's Florabotanica history....not to mention, covering everything from her favorite black leather jacket, that French je ne sais quoi, and how she relates to Alice in Wonderland. She MAY not have been able to fill the entire 30-minute time slot (girl gets to her point fast), but the spokesmodel for the fashion house's new fragrance covered a TON of territory in a short timespan. We've got your K.Stew interview Sparknotes below, so let's review!

Sky Ferreira

She's sat front row at dozens of fashion shows, made cameos in more magazines than we can even count, and rolled out not just one but TWO glossy, slick-looking music videos this summer. Needless to say, not much can faze Sky Ferreira. However, yesterday we witnessed a rare Sky first as she performed on the S.S. Yankee docked in the Hudson River for her inaugural CMJ . It should go without saying that she totally rocked the boat (heh), belting out tracks from her new Ghost EP, but she looked killer doing so dressed in a cropped sweater, black skirt, and leather ankle boots. Just before Sky hit the stage- sorry, cabin- we sat down with the singer to quiz her on music video fashion, gigantic t-shirts, and ultimate schoolgirl style icons. Check out our interview after the jump!

On top of a new album, single, and beauty-stacked music video, Christina Aguilera is ALSO launching a brand new perfume. The new scent, Red Sin, is the latest addition to Xtina's major fragrance arsenal, and probably the spiciest one yet with notes of ginger, cinnamon, sandalwood, cyclamen, musk and red apple. We took you through her sultry commercial for the fragrance earlier this month, but thanks to our friends at Fashion Indie who sat down to chat with THE Miss Aguilera, we now get a snapshot into the thought process behind developing the scent and the ad spot. Check out the 5 things we learned from their interview with Xtina after the jump!

Kristen Stewart Balenciaga

When we found out Kristen Stewart would be the new face of Balenciaga's perfume earlier this year, we basically fuh-reaked out. I mean, we can TOTALLY get behind K Stew making her mark in the fashion and beauty world because, um, hiiii that's basically combining the two things we love most (celebs and fashion!). Even though we've peeped the Florabotanica campaign and heard the Twilight star dish on all-things beauty and fragrance, we still can't get enough of this killer collab. Thankfully, Balenciaga is blessing us with one of the biggest/best gifts we'll receive ALL year—a live interview with Ms. Stewart herself! Eeeee!

Cher Lloyd

Let's all give a slow clap for Cher Lloyd, shall we? After all, the former U.K. X-Factor contestant (and last week's PUSH Artist!) is responsible for one of THE most addictive songs of the summer, the super catchy pop anthem "Want U Back." Overflowing with coy, confident "brattitude," (not a real term, but who cares?), the video combines Cher's killer vocals and pouty lyrics with a flirty fashion parade of shimmery bandeau tops, leather skirts, and piles of charm jewelry. Clearly this is a girl who KNOWS what she's doing- and lucky for us, she's willing to share her style secrets! Just in time for the release of her debut U.S. album Sticks + Stones, the 19-year-old stopped by MTV to talk all things fashion. Dressed in a customized denim jacket and embellished Chuck Taylors, Cher had a LOT to say about regrettable outfit choices, following trends, and why it's important to bring tons of underwear on the road. Check out our video interview with Cher Lloyd below!

No Doubt

Rainbow colored hair, bindis, and a major case of the crop tops... No Doubt has seen some seriously EPIC style moments over the years! We all know that nobody can touch Gwen's tank and loose pants steez (even way back when she was just a teenager!), and to this day she's still killing that signature sporty style both onstage and off. The guys aren't too shabby either, repping patterned suits, varsity jackets and Docs now with the same OC attitude we've loved ever since the Tragic Kingdom days. Bottom line: we can wax nostalgic about the band's biggest fash moments FOREVER, but we'd much rather hear it from the members themselves. So let's take a trip down No Doubt memory lane, why don't we? Just in time for their new album Push And Shove (out now!), Gwen, Tony, Adrian and Tom popped by MTV to rehash their coolest, craziest, and most memorable style memories from back in the day when stylists weren't a thing and hot pink hair was the norm. See it allll go down in the 'MTV News: Fashion Flashback' below!

We were SO stoked when we found out Alicia Keys would be debuting her first-ever Reebok Classics collection earlier this month—her limited-edition sneaks included everything from black studded high-tops (our fave!) to bold, tribal-printed Freestyles to piano-key covered kicks. After peeping all the shoes, we knew we had to get more details behind the killer collection, and, lucky for us, we got to check out the kicks up close AND chat with Ms. Alicia Keys herself! Spoiler alert: She's awesome. Alicia told us she's been a longtime fan of the Reebok Classics brand (specifically those 5411s!) and always had a dream to design her own pair. Thanks to her hubby Swizz Beatz working as the creative director for the sneaker company and her mega-appreciation for killer shoes, her dream became a reality! She also revealed that—gasp—she has even more Reebok Classics coming out in the near future, so don't worry—we'll have tons more high-tops to drool over. Watch Alicia talk about her collection below, including how the collab came together, what type of girl she designed these shoes for, and how her "inner sneaker freak" has finally come alive!

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