Ke$ha

On last night's My Crazy Beautiful Life, Ke$ha decided to hold an eBay auction, the proceeds of which will benefit The Humane Society of the United States. The items, as Ke$ha describes them, range from things she wore on red carpets to items from her childhood. During the episode, K$ tweeted the link to her eBay store (#technology) which we, of course, immediately clicked on.

While the Hawaiian shirt from her ex-BF and the "hot and dangerous" Herve Leger dress that we got a preview of in the episode aren't on the site (are they sold out already or did she get cold feet?), the plaid shirt from her "C'Mon" video is. The shirt is her "Awful House" uniform, which she wears before she quits to party in a van with people in animal costumes. Considering her love for full-body furries and the name bestowed upon her fans, her decision to donate money to help dogs is, like, such a no-brainer.

Last night's episode of The Carrie Diaries was full of romance and, of course, on point '80s steez. We caught up with Eric Daman, the man in charge of the cast's clothes and accessories to get the deets on Carrie's wardrobe as she carefully navigated her Sebastian-filled high school halls and spiced up her new romance with Weaver in New York.

As usual, Carrie looks sleeker for study hall than most people do for black tie events. Eric explained, "Carrie's school style is making statements this season: she is a senior, after all, AND interning at Interview Magazine! This outfit is school girl chic and sexy, the black Maeve blouse keeps her artsy edge but the soft 3D floral detail on her collar and sleeve keeps her fresh as a daisy. Punchy red earrings from Etsy are totally on trend 80's and very Carrie. Her Polka dot Kate Spade kitten heels are hallway appropriate for this stylish student on the go! Teetering in 5" Manolos is a high school no-no!" It should be noted that I did not design Carrie's incredible 3D shirt, despite the shared name. I'm going to start gluing flowers to all my of clothes, though, because they look awesome.

Ke$ha

When you hear the name "Ke$ha," there are a few words that immediately come to mind: "glitter," "penis jewelry," and, as of late, "brightly colored hair" are among them. "Glam," is typically not. We've grown so accustomed to seeing Ke$ha in her sparkling leotards and Solo cup bras that when she put on a dress for her cousin's surprise engagement, we had to rewind the fourth episode of My Crazy Beautiful Life to make sure we weren't seeing things.

We hope somewhere Lady Gaga is taking at least one day of vacation. Last week, she kicked Monday off by releasing her long-awaited ARTPOP album in the U.S. AND premiering the world's first flying dress. On Tuesday, she was honored as one of Glamour magazine's Women of the Year. On Wednesday, she was rumored to be the next face of Versace. She opened both an ARTPOP pop-up shop and Times Square's brand spankin' new H&M store. And of course, this weekend, she was host and musical guest on Saturday Night Live. Lucky for SNL, if there's one performer the concept of "quick changes" isn't lost on, it's Gaga, and her ep (in keeping with, you know, her everyday life) was full of rapid outfit switch-ups.

OPENING MONOLOGUE

For her opening monologue, Gaga performed a parody of her own "Applause" single. Rewritten to celebrate cheap applause and all the ways a host can pander for it, the rendition Mother Monster performed for the Studio 8H stage was jazzier than the original, and Gaga played it up with sparkly flapper fringe and a glamorous Marilyn Monroe-esque wig.

WAKING UP WITH KIMYE

In stark contrast, Gaga's first character was a bespectacled Apple Genius plucked from the mall for Kanye West and Kim Kardashian's fictional morning show, Waking Up With Kimye. Naturally, Kanye (played by Jay Pharaoh) challenges her on her genius title, and though Kim is wearing a white "Givenchy dress and Gaga is wearing her character's frumpy work uniform, Yeezy still says Kim wore it better. In a moment of total self-awareness, Genius Gaga says, "Honestly, I don't care about fashion. Sometimes I think that people who try too hard with their outfits are maybe hiding something," then blinks knowingly to camera behind her thick birth control glasses. "Like come on, dress like a person."

After the tragic Sebastian/Carrie breakup last week, young Miss Bradshaw is back at Interview, pitching stories and trying to move beyond her role as personal cappuccino fetcher. She also strikes up a hot new romance with a young playwright (we will mourn her relationship with Sebastian a little bit less because #HEY Weaver), and meets her dad's new girlfriend for the first time. Carrie changes a lot throughout this episode, so we got the costume deets and backstory for a few of the outfits from the show's costume designer, Eric Daman.

When she's at Interview, of course, CB is spending time in New York rather than Connecticut, so she needs to stand out. Eric described his reasoning behind Carrie's polka dot dress during the episode's opening montage: "This ModCloth dress had me seeing spots and made Carrie a stand out style star on her lunch break. I gave her a vintage belt and beads for some B52's/80's inspired retro realness. Her Jessica Simpson color-blocked sandals are perfectly in tune and keep the look aspirational AND affordable!"

On last night's episode of The Carrie Diaries, Carrie and Walt ended their spectacular summer in the city, Larissa and Samantha almost came to blows, and Sebastian made major moves for Carrie. We spoke to the show's costume designer, Eric Daman, as we've been doing since the beginning of the season, to get the deets on who wore what, when, and why.

Carrie is reluctant to head back to Castlebury, which makes sense: she has '80s NYC style down. Eric said, "Carrie looks right at home in her NYC digs. Her 'Cruel Summer' safari romper and totally awesome polka dot crop top give her 'Karma Chameleon' appeal, a style study in harmonizing set design and costumes."

Ke$ha

It's obvious that Ke$ha likes to have fun on tour (see: her mom in a penis costume). My Crazy Beautiful Life makes it evident just how much fun she likes to have: pranks are plentiful and last night's episode featured one that included red Solo cups, hot-pink duct tape, and tiger masks (obvs).

Ke$ha and team decided to surprise her opening act, Semi-Precious Weapons, by running onstage with nothing but strategically placed cups. For an extra precaution, Ke$ha decided to tape hers in place with hot pink duct tape, creating a halter-top, party-bra. If you squint your eyes just so, it's almost a makeshift homage to Madonna's pointy cone bra. Like, basically you have to have your eyes closed... Meow.

Aaaaaaanyway, she paired the jury-rigged top with a tiger head because, as everybody knows, those are the ironclad rules. It's too bad Halloween just ended, this would've been the perfect ~sexy~ tiger costume. Luckily, Ke$ha didn't have to take the stage alone in such a precarious outfit: her dancers joined her.

Last week, the second season of The Carrie Diaries premiered and we were treated to behind-the-scenes fashion deets from Eric Daman, the show's costume designer. The second episode kicks off with Samantha, Carrie and Walt's "temporary" (though she's been living in their apartment for 3 weeks) roommate, walking around in the buff and working as a phone sex operator. Walt urges Carrie to ask her to leave, which she tries to do via phone, wearing this magenta animal print dress and crystal necklace, both from Topshop.

Ke$ha

It's no secret that here at MTV Style we luhhhhve us a behind-the-scenes look at, well, basically anything. Luckily for us, the new season of Ke$ha's MTV series, My Crazy Beautiful Life is, essentially, an extended BTS look at Ke$ha's life on tour. Count us in.

The second season of My Crazy Beautiful Life premiered last night and we got some more 411 on the ghost that haunts Ke$ha's vagina (a convenient Halloween costume), as well as her family, including her penis-costume wearing mom, Pebe. While the entire show is filled with footage you wouldn't have access to anywhere else, we were most struck by the sight of Ke$ha without her long hair.

In case you were unaware, The Carrie Diaries is back! We watched the preview, peeped the poster, and now, we're ready for Carrie to be back in our lives for a second season! Obviously, the on-point '80s fashion is critical to the show, Carrie's character, and her future, adult self, which is why we're so excited to share our interview with Eric Daman, The Carrie Diaries' Costume Designer. Check out the full interview below, and if you want more Eric in your life (and, I mean, after reading this, how could you not?), you can follow him on Twitter (so many BTS photos!), or check out his website.

MTV STYLE: You worked with Patricia Field on Sex and The City for three seasons, how has that experience influenced how you dress teen Carrie on The Carrie Diaries?

Eric Daman: I draw from SATC every day, trying to create "buried treasures," or as Amy B. Harris (creator/producer/writer), calls them, "Easter eggs," that hopefully will resonate with the audience as a-ha moments, leading them to think, "A-ha! That's where the inspiration for the Carrie necklace came from!" Like, Young Carrie wearing a signature '80s style C necklace by Alex Woo. It is an intentional process that hopefully is nuanced enough to feel fresh and new, but integral to who Carrie is stylistically. I am elated and honored to have been asked to carry on and breathe new life into such an amazing fashion torch. Ultimately, I hope to do right and pay homage to the fashion icon we know and love as well.

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