A clown, a cat and a pop singer.

To the untrained eye, this photo may appear to be your average Halloween snapshot. But if you look a little closer, you’ll see that there’s a pop star in disguise, deviously lurking among fans to give them a trick AND a treat. MWA-HA-HA-HA-HA. (But don’t be scurred!) Before she performed on Jimmy Kimmel Live last night, Ariana Grande encouraged fans attending the taping to dress up in costume for a ‘special surprise.’ Since Grande is basically like, a Pied Piper of screaming tweens, a TON of her loyal followers showed up, but only three were chosen to compete for the chance to meet the tiny diva: The clown, the cat and the chicken.

ICYMI, Katy Perry was the musical guest on Saturday Night Live this weekend, and she put on a SHOW, you guys. The pop star sang two songs off her upcoming album, Prism (which rolls out on October 22nd), and per uzhe, she did not shy away from onstage theatrics. Many musicians tend to use the studio’s compact performance space as an opportunity to strip down their typical set and get back to basics—but let’s be honest: there’s nothing “basic” about the woman who brought us a boxing ring under the Brooklyn Bridge.
Miley Cyrus appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today, and among the things discussed in the interview portion of the show were: Miley’s recent Liam Hemsworth breakup (*GASP*), strippers (*DOUBLE GASP*), her ever-present tongue (*shrug*) and the must-have Miley Cyrus twerking figurine (GIMME). After gifting Miley one of the limited-edition “Bobble Butts,” Ellen also took a minute to recognize Cyrus’ undying obsession with onesies. (See also: Your next Halloween costume.) Ellen then reached back into her bag of presents and pulled out the most magnificent onesie the world will ever lay their eyes on.
Mimi and Amber shop for work clothes.
Blazers, slacks, pumps, some sensible button-ups and perhaps a high-waisted pencil skirt or two. These are the tried-and-true basics found in most women’s work wardrobes. But for the ladies of Big Tips Texas, MTV’s new reality show about a rowdy lil’ honky-tonk bar outside of Dallas, the key to daily dressing lies in the cut of your underwear. Any lingerie that shows the crease of your butt is a ~definite~ no-go, says Amber (a.k.a. Sexy Kitty), who’s worked at the bar since the day it opened. But throw a sheer chemise on over a thong and it might as well be Casual Friday at Red Neck Heaven. Oh! Well, that makes sense. (Actually, no it doesn’t.)
Style yourself like Samantha.
Rejoice: Young Carrie Bradshaw will finally meet young Samantha Jones! The Carrie Diaries doesn't return to our TVs until October 25th, but The CW released a poster for the second season, and we are so excited to see that it features Carrie and Samantha. All our old fashionable friends are back together! Actually, they're meeting for the first time (since The Carrie Diaries is a prequel to Sex and the City), but whatever. We are verrrrry excited to see what Samantha dressed like in the '80s: if this poster is any indication, we're in for some serious style.
I'm pretty sure we can all agree that Miley Cyrus is having the best year (as far as notoriety, anyway) EVER, and this week surrounding the release of her Bangerz album drop—her first new music since her dramatic image overhaul and the pixie cut heard 'round the world—has been one of the biggest. On top of the album, there was the launch of her Miley: The Movement documentary and of COURSE, her stint as both musical guest and HOST of Saturday Night Live this weekend. We already know that Miles is a world-class chameleon, off-stage AND on (shape-shifting was basically the entire premise of Hannah Montana, right??), but SNL tooks things to the next level. While we typically reserve our Look By Look breakdowns for music videos, we're making an exception because this is toooootally worth it.
VMA INTRO SKETCH

Hey look! It's us! Miley's now infamous MTV VMA performance obviously needed to be addressed in her hosting episode, and why better time to do it than at the top of the show? And Miles even brought back her silver fuzzy bear leotard (sans nude latex) and baby raver buns for the occasion.

For her opening monologue, M kept the two-knot 'do (let's be honest, there was no time to switch styles) but wore it with a vintage Versace houndstooth suit set with a double-breasted cropped jacket (modified to be extra cropped) and zippered pencil skirt. Not pictured: Bobby Moynihan doing his best Wrecking Ball nude.
Rihanna is ready to rock.

We thought we were well-versed on the topic of the Robyn Rihanna Fenty-produced show, Styled To Rock, but, boy, how things have changed. The show, which was originally set to air on the Style Network on November 5th, has been switched to debut on Bravo on October 25th. YAAAS! Rihanna-approved #FASHUN sooner? We likey.
The show had already promised famous mentors, including longtime RiRi stylist, Mel Ottenberg, model Erin Wasson, and some guy named Pharrell (yeah, IDK either, JK I DO), but this new preview gives us a taste of the celeb guest judges we can expect to see and, dang, there are a lot.
We knew we had to honor the end of Breaking Bad and what better way to do it than with nail art? Especially after we stumbled upon these INSANE BB nails complete with mini meth crystals in Walt's signature blue. Unsurprisingly, there are a lot of other ah-may-zing Breaking Bad-inspired designs out there, so we rounded them up to ease the pain of having to fill your Sunday nights with a new TV show.
Nicki Minaj on 'Ellen.'

As we all well know, Nicki Minaj decided to go no shirt, no bra, just jacket for her appearance on The Ellen Show, which airs this afternoon. The show posted a preview of Ellen's interview with her Minajesty and, though the clip is under two minutes, it provides a lot of insight into Nicki's style and fashion choices. Instead of willfully avoiding all eye contact as I would've done, Ellen engages Nicki and even offers her a bra of her own—so generous, that Ellen. Nicki then explains that she didn't wear a bra because she hates them. YOLO. A quick spin through Nicki's Instagram will confirm that, yes, she does hate bras and frequently does not wear them. Especially when she's wearing a jacket with no shirt on underneath. In the interview she doesn't mention shirts, but I guess she hates them too?
Animals, how are you doing? If you're anything like us, you just watched the trailer for the second season of Ke$ha's My Crazy Beautiful Life, like, fifteen times. There's a lot to take in! There are a TON of quintessential Ke$ha looks crammed into two minutes (face glitter, sparkly stage costumes, etc.etc.), so we've broken down everything you need to know, by the numbers. Immerse yourself in Ke$ha so you're ready for the second season's premiere on October 30th, when there will be even more Ke$ha #FASHUN.
