Teen Wolf

On last night's Teen Wolf, Isaac wore a navy blue scarf. It looked good, IMHO. Though so does everything he wears, so, like, maybe I'm biased. If you're familiar with Teen Wolf, the scarf doesn't seem out of place in Isaac's wardrobe: dude loves cardigans and deep V-neck tees. Plus, maybe his neck gets chilly from time to time. We've all been there. All of us, except Stiles, I guess, who makes fun of Isaac's scarf because it's 65 degrees out. Some people just like the feel of a nice scarf around their necks, Stiles. Jeez.

Given that Stiles had such a strong opinion on Isaac's sartorial choice, we checked in with Teen Wolf's costume designer, Barbara Vasquez, for the full 411 on the scarf.

This week's The Carrie Diaries had a lot going on. Like, a ton. Maggie accidentally joined the Army (don't ask), Sebastian attempted to launch his own skateboard clothing company, and Walt and Bennett had to face the threat of AIDS for the first time. Carrie, as always, looked stylish and ready for Valentine's Day (even though her boyfriend canceled their plans so he could go out with Tony Hawk). As usual, we got the wardrobe deets from the show's costume designer, Eric Daman, so check 'em out below!

The episode opens with Carrie walking in Soho (does she go to school anymore, JW?) and ruminating on Valentine's Day. Since it's supposed to be February and therefore chilly out, Eric told us about finding the perfect V-Day coat: "Ever since Gossip Girl, I have developed a love/hate relationship with coats and having to design around them for outdoor scenes. Now, with The Carrie Diaries, I am again faced with the difficult task of making outerwear fab, cute, and Carrie-licious. Making this selection even harder is the oversized coat trend currently sweeping the fashion world!!! Finding a cute coat that fits Miss Bradshaw is nearly impossible! Luckily, I stumbled upon the children's outerwear section at Saks and saw this beautiful Dolce & Gabbana coat! Perfection! High style and fit to a T.! Plus, kids' designer clothes are like half as much as the adult versions!"

Katy Perry

While we were all a little preoccupied by the Golden Globes, the red carpet, and the after-parties, Katy Perry was in Beijing, performing in never-before-seen outfits. Could these looks be a taste of what's to come on her Prismatic World Tour? It seems like a definite possibility!

In a stunning turn of events, it kinda looks like Katy predicted the Golden Globes' cape trend even before anyone hit the red carpet. She performed "Unconditionally" in a floor-length white robe which, NBD, had tiny lights sewn into the collar and sleeves. When we speculated about Katy's Prismatic Tour wardrobe before, we considered iridescent material a serious contender for the obvious reason that it reflects light. But actually including real working lights in the outfits? That's a game-changer.

Her second cloaked look, which is very similar to all the gold lamé Lady Gaga has been wearing lately, doesn't produce light, but it does reflect a lot of it. The glare off that thing probably induces squinting. We strongly suggest coming prepared with sunglasses if you're planning on seeing Katy IRL. The metallic cape differs in hue from the holographic looks Katy debuted in the fall, but to that we say, "Shine bright like a diamond, Katy, in whichever material you choose."

Teen Wolf is back! After a five-month hiatus, our Beacon Hills High faves are back and, as usual, killin' it, style-wise. Last season, we noticed that pairs of Teen Wolf characters were beginning to dress similarly: Stiles and Scott were tartan twinsies while Allison and Scott matched in double denim (and let's not forget the shirtless Alpha Twins). Scott seems to have passed his affinity for dressing like his frandz on to Allison, who, in last night's midseason premiere, matched Lydia's dressy school steez in a skirt.

Ellie Goulding

Ellie Goulding's video for "Goodness Gracious" was just released, and it is a Day-Glo DREAM. In a behind-the-scenes peek, Ellie explained that because the song's lyrics are dark, she wanted the images to be "bright and bold," so obviously, it was shot in L.A., capital of all of the above. The vid is both of those things, big time, and Ellie's glittery and glowing looks command attention, which is exactly why we've broken down each outfit for a look by look. Forget the freezing temperatures outside for a sec, and check out her cheery wardrobe below!

Ellie's first look is a sequined plaid jacket, which she pairs with a silk bustier. Her hair is perfect, but not ~perfectly coiffed~. No, I'm talking the most desirable bed-head in the history of the world. Her hair remains practically the same throughout the video, which is great, because I can't stop looking at it.

Last night's The Carrie Diaries featured a lot of Carrie and Sebastian and a lot of partying (two things that guarantee an interesting episode). As usual, we got the behind-the-scenes deets on Carrie's wardrobe from the show's costume designer, Eric Daman. Check out what he had to say about one of Carrie's many coats and her party outfit!

Now that Sebastian lives in L.A., his relationship with Carrie is challenging, simply because they can't manage to get in contact with one another. I will thank my lucky stars every day for cell phones (not that I don't already, TBH). One of Carrie's many attempts to reach him via pay phone comes at the beginning of the episode. Eric told us, "For the scene when Carrie is on a pay phone on the street, I knew it was all about the coat! I had to find something that really grabbed the viewers' attention and was super cute! My sixth sense (kinda like my Spidey style sense), told me this coat from Kate Spade would be the one...except it was too big! But lucky me, my team tailor, Anastasya, is a fashion miracle worker and reworked the oversized overcoat into a sweet petite fashion treat. It was a scene-stealer and the neon pink (so '80s!) trimmings really framed AnnaSophia Robb's face for the closeup shot!"

A Christmas episode of a TV show can only mean one thing: festive fashion. We caught up with Eric Daman, costume designer on The Carrie Diaries for all the awesome '80s swag Carrie and her stylish boss, Larissa, wore on last night's episode.

When Larissa gathered everyone after exploring the western frontier, you knew she had discovered something major. She is passionate about one thing this episode: DENIM. Eric gave us the full rundown on her denim discovery: "I can't really talk this week's fashion without mentioning Larissa's denim jumpsuit! When I read the script and learned Larissa discovered denim, I knew it had to be a TV fashion moment to remember (and an over-the-top '80s tribute to boot)! My team searched high and low, and we finally came across this truly amazing design on Etsy. (BTW, Etsy is totally my new BFF!!) This jumpsuit had ALL the '80s bells and whistles in one! Shoulder pads? Check! Puffy paint pen and bedazzled gems? Check! Bustier and bolero? Check!"

Whew, a lot happened on The Carrie Diaries last night. Like, A LOT. Carrie confronted Weaver, Bennett searched for a new job, Maggie had pregnancy complications, Mouse tried to spice up her relationship with West, and Sebastian continued to be a beautiful angel on Earth. Carrie also won a trip to Paris, but wasn't there to claim her prize and will forever be known as "the girl who didn't go to Paris." JK, that nickname was doled out to Lauren Conrad long ago. As usual, we got the deets on Carrie's wardrobe from the show's costume designer, Eric Daman, so check them out below!

The episode opens with Carrie checking out The New York Post and--surprise!--finding out that Weaver called her "diminutive," "phony," and, worst of all, "suburban" to Page Six. Eric told us, "Carrie reads The New York Post's 'Page Six' every day, but wasn't expecting to see herself being called diminutive. I wanted her look for this scene to be anything but. I was really looking to have that idiosyncratic Carrie style shine through and let her look keep a sense of whimsy while her mood darkened. The photorealism "Funland" print pencil skirt from Topshop fit the bill (and fit AnnaSophia Robb's cute curves like a dream!). By pairing it with the Opening Ceremony navy polka dot crew neck, the look stays chic and just serious enough to balance the fab T&J turquoise, floral statement necklace."

After a brief hiatus The Carrie Diaries returned with Carrie still dating Weaver (#hey), but also still fostering feeling for Sebastien (#hey). She's also enrolled in a big time writing class at The New School, so her need to look stylish in the city is at an all-time high. As we've done all season, we chatted with Eric Daman, the show's costume designer, about Carrie's looks from the episode and the decisions behind her costumes.

After being hounded by Weaver about writing all week, Carrie is like, "BYEUH Weaver you're annoying/not supportive." Though he's QT, she made the right decision, IMHO. Eric gave us the deets on her look: "We wanted to keep Carrie's big break up moment a surprise, so I opted for a really fun, playful and iconic Carrie look. The bustier shoe print dress by Eva Franco was perfect! Shoes?!? All over a dress!? Carrie LOVES shoes and I love this dress for this classic walk-and talk SATC style stoop scene. The lime green and pink Kate Spade cardi with plastic flower embellishment was the ideal layer to keep AnnaSophia Robb warm on a cool night and look cool and colorful for the scene."

Lady Gaga

In between bedazzling seashell sessions, Lady Gaga has been hitting up many a TV show while in Japan. Over the weekend, she was on Music Station Japan in a vintage Gianni Versace jacket, Kansai Yamamoto pants, and Spring '14 Versace belt, and for her performance on SMAPxSMAP, Gaga continued mixing Versace with Yamamoto for, as she aptly dubbed it, "serious glam history." (Yamamoto is perhaps best known for designing David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust tour wardrobe.)

Gaga's performance kicked off with a colorful jacket from the Japanese designer. She traded in the Botticelli wig which she has been giving a lot of head time while in Tokyo for the frizzy white wig she favored at the Glamour Women Of The Year Awards and in Berlin. How many wigs do you think Lady Gaga brings when she travels? How many suitcases are filled only with wigs? 5 or more? I guess she's used to facing a lot of baggage fees. She's been in Tokyo for less than a week and worn at least 5 vastly different wigs. She even broke her "Personal record for wig changes in one day." Congrats, Gagaloo!

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