We don't know about you, but we just might be on the brink of breaking the replay button on Demi Lovato's brand spankin' new music video for "Heart Attack." Since the clip's exclusive premiere with E! News yesterday afternoon, we haven't been able to get enough! From the direction's interplay of dark and light to Demi's seamless oscillation between fresh-faced and smoky-eyed, the video for the Demi album's first single shows D in handful wildly divergent (and arguably more grown-up) looks. Naturally, having vigilantly played this thing to point where our index fingers are withering and about to crack off, we feel it's our duty that we break down Demi's every sartorial (and beauty!) move for you before we physically can't type anymore. Here we go!
Selena Gomez is making us want clear accessories.

You guys. A thing happened. More specifically, Selena Gomez tweeted this picture of herself serving duck face (yes, again) wearing a pair of clear glasses, and now, we can't stop daydreaming about clear accessories. I know what you're thinking, "You guys should really maybe take a break from stalking celebrities' Twitter accounts and over-analyzing their wardrobes." Oh, and also, "aren't all glasses clear?" Well, to your first comment, I extend a cordial head nod but shrug off your unsolicited advice because helloooo, that's our bread and butter, YA HEARD?!?? As far as your question, let me clarify. Not only are the 2013 MTV Movie Awards performer's lenses clear, her frames are, too!
AnnaSophia Robb on the cover of Seventeen.
Have the Wednesday blues got you down? Well, here's some sparkle to light up your mid-week. AnnaSophia Robb is the May Seventeen cover girl! The Carrie Diaries star is all smiles on not just one but TWO covers of the legendary teen mag, and they're both so cute, please don't make us pick favorites. We can hardly believe it's already summer cover time, but indeed it is, and on the first cover AnnaSophia is wearing a floral swimsuit that has us positively swooning. A structured one piece with a mirror print of english roses and frills at the neckline and around the leg openings, the suit is NOT your average Speedo. Styled with a bright yellow cardigan and chunky, layered necklaces, the cover is part day by the pool, part dress up. Our favorite part, though? You can just make out that our cover girl is wearing bright turquoise eye shadow!
Carrie Underwood's three Academy Of Country Music Awards looks.
You might not realize it, but here at MTV Style we can get a little bit country. We like to think of ourselves as open-minded, but it doesn't even take an open mind to get down with some of our favorite Nashville ladies. Arguably two of the reigning queens of country, Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift, took to last night's 2013 Academy of Country Music Awards red carpet AND stage in multiple looks that have us swooning. Both women brought it consistently throughout the night, but we have to talk about Carrie first because not only did she do red carpet to stage style like a pro, but she changed her performance look TWICE throughout the night. Starting out the evening in a floral photo printed Naeem Khan gown and a flippy updo, Underwood was a picture of spring. The dress, which featured a sweetheart neckline, A-line silhouette and contrast black sash, also had an epic blown-up tulip print. A daring choice on a carpet which was otherwise relatively tame, and we're wholly in support of it.
Miley Cyrus wore leather basketball shorts to Pharrell's birthday party.

From her sheer, studded and embellished pre-Grammys dress to her black and white striped Chanel jumpsuit, we're already well aware that Miley Cyrus isn't exactly the traditional type when it comes to formal dressing. However, the singer took her daring approach to a whole new level this weekend when she attended Pharrell's 40th birthday bash (happy birthday, P!) in... leather basketball shorts?! Yep, that happened, and leave it to Miley to be probably one of the only people in the universe to pull off the risky look. They're from En Noir men's collection, which the pop star alluded to on Twitter, saying "Girl in boys clothing." Clearly stealing from the guys is a real thing these days (see also: Ciara), and it's a trend we can definitely get behind. She paired the luxe bottoms with a crop top courtesy of Maison Martin Margiela and Simone studded leather jacket. While Miley kept most of her outfit on the androgynous side, the star DID add one decidedly feminine touch: killer Saint Laurent sky-high heels.
Before we say anything else, we need to tell you about something SUPER exciting happening TONIGHT. Jessie Ware, the British crooner responsible for such songs as "Wildest Moments" and "Sweet Talk," is playing MTV's Artist to Watch Live in New York City, and you can watch it via livestream right here on MTV.com at 9 PM EST. It's going to be great, and you're going to absolutely fall in love with Jessie, if you haven't already, that is. We've been head over heels for her soulful sound AND her signature style ever since we first came across her calling her a rising style star last month for her love of crop tops and wearing pants on the red carpet. We're beyond excited for you to get a chance to get to know her too, which is why we sat her down and had a quick chat about some of her favorite style items, where she gets them, and who she's sweating sartorially.

As if the "Mirrors" Pepsi commercial that Beyonce premiered yesterday (along with close to a FULL minute of her new song "Grown Woman") wasn't enough to tide us over to the weekend, the Pepsi x Bey team rolled out a behind-the-scenes video look at the campaign shoot. AFKGLJDFLKAJ. Candid King Bey traipsing around in a robe? Rehearsing her dance steps in sky-high heels? Reflecting on her star-spangled career between takes? Yes, yes, a thousand times, YES. We want it all. The video features interviews with Mrs. Carter herself along with Global Beverage Group at PepsiCo President Brad Jakeman, the commercial's director Jake Nava (also the mastermind behind the "Single Ladies" and "Crazy In Love" videos *WINK*), and choreography director Frank Gatson, but our personal fave is obviously the iconic music video wardrobe breakdown by Bey's long-time trusted stylist Ty Hunter.

It takes a LOT for us to set our alarms extra early in the morning, but if there's anyone we'll do it for, it's Beyonce. Yesterday the superstar hinted that something huge would be coming at 9 AM on 4/4/13, and she stayed true to her word, dropping her brand new Pepsi commercial upon the world bright and early today! Although an ad might not be quite as heart-stopping as a new music video, the clip (featuring a preview of her new song "Grown Woman") DID take us down Bey memory lane. It's a blink-and-you'll-miss-it game of Beyonce style trivia with her most iconic music video looks, all stuffed into this one minute commercial. We're talking about that pink one-shouldered crop top and slit skirt from "Bootylicious," the white tank and denim hotpants from "Crazy In Love," and the black leotard and Sasha Fierce hand from "Single Ladies." Are your brains exploding yet?! There's moreee!
Demi Lovato without makeup (and no, we didn't photoshop this AT ALL).

Holy smokes, Demi Lovato. Ok we're not surprised, but Demi posted a photo of herself bare faced and presumably fresh out of bed this morning and she looks flawless. In a campaign she launched on Twitter this morning, the singer is encouraging her fans to go makeup and Instagram filter free today to show off their natural beauty, and to show them just how committed she is to supporting her Lovatics, she naturally took the plunge first. We want the number of Demi's dermatologist, because it's clear that she takes immaculate care of her skin. While it's too late for us--we already put on our makeup this morning, we LOVE that Demi is encouraging her fans to appreciate and share their natural beauty. It really is sad that a photo of a star without their face on, as they say, is even newsworthy, but these days it really is. And don't let that make you think we don't love makeup, we do, and we love playing around with it and trying new looks, but we also wish there was more room for women to just be themselves.
