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!"

Rihanna, What Now

So, Rihanna has been laying pretty low recently, huh? She hasn't changed her hair; her Instagram feed isn't very badgal at all, but filled with pictures of her childhood; and, like, we just miss her, you know? Our Rihanna void has been temporarily filled by the video for "What Now," which she's been teasing for the past week. Her wardrobe doesn't stray much from the behind-the-scenes video she posted yesterday, but, as always, there are subtle details that deserve attention.

The video begins with the girl from The Last Exorcism: Part II (unfamiliar? Here's a refresher). JK, it's Rihanna! She's in that floor-length white dress we saw yesterday. What we didn't notice yesterday was just how sheer it is. *GULP*

Miley Cyrus

The video for Future's "Real And True featuring Miley Cyrus" track has been hotly anticipated ever since pictures of naked (but sparkly) Miley were released in October. Good news, y'all: the video just dropped (exclusively through MTV, BTW), and shimmering alien Miley is, in fact, featured, as well some space fashion, so let's take a look!

Even in the complete darkness of space, Future needs sunglasses. It's possible he gets a lot of glare from the huge diamonds in his ears, but it seems more likely he just wants to look cool in front of Mr. Hudson and Miley. With only 2 other people around, these shades have Future fast-tracked to becoming the cool guy of the gang.

Katy Perry

Katy Perry's 2013 MTV EMA performance of "Unconditionally" included two looks: human maypole and suit of mirrors. Katy kicked off the performance covered in strips of purple, blue, and pink cloth, which the dancers below her intertwined. The result was, essentially, a brightly colored cocoon. Katy then shed the cocoon to emerge as a mirror-encrusted butterfly, and once she was free of acting as the pole for the #latepass May Day celebrants below her, she began floating through Amsterdam's Ziggo Dome, reflecting light.

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."

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.

It's no secret that we're big fans of Selena Gomez around here at MTV Style: we keep up to date on her hairstyles, who she's hanging out with, and what she's wearing on tour. As big-time Selenators, imagine how excited we were when we found out that we'd get to chat with Selly about her "Stars Dance" tour wardrobe, her role in the design process, and how she changes outfits so many times. We were the most excited.

The music video for Mike Will Made It's "23 feat. Miley Cyrus, Wiz Khalfia, and Juicy J" was just released. Right after the VMAs, Miley teased her look, showing off a cut-up Michael Jordan jersey and thong-detail bike shorts, but that in no way prepared us for the volume of Jordan and Chicago Bulls swag the video would contain. There are a TON of looks, so we betta begin!

We catch a glimpse of red stilettos in a bathroom stall. Sure, the garbage is intriguing, but what about that gold ankle strap? Is that, like, an ankle charm bracelet? We quickly find out these feet belong to Miley Cyrus who is smoking in a school bathroom. OH BOY.

Miley Cyrus

Happy Monday: here are some pictures from my weekend I want to share with you. JUST KIDDING, these are pictures of Miley Cyrus performing at the iHeart Radio Music Festival in Las Vegas this weekend. Well, Miley has certainly turned up the heat on her performance wardrobe, and it seems, IT'S GOTTEN SO HOT SHE'S HAD TO REMOVE ALL HER CLOTHES. Her first outfit (on the right) was similar to the one she wears in the "Wrecking Ball" video, as well in the trailer for the Miley: The Movement—the girl loves a white crop top with white bottoms like none other. Unlike her other crop tops, which existed on their own, this white lace-up bustier is tied to her white scalloped shorts. It's a lace-up romper and is probably the most annoying piece of clothing in the world to take off.

Taylor Swift

Do we sense a trend? Last night, Taylor Swift wore a bejeweled Grand Ole Opry t-shirt to perform at the Grand Ole Opry. How meta of ya, Swifty. The shirt is currently on sale in the Opry's gift shop, so maybe Taylor spilled something on one of her striped performance shirts and needed a quick replacement? While a perfectly plausible scenario, it seems unlikely because A) Taylor Swift probably has never stained anything, and B) SHE'S WORN LOCATION-APPROPRIATE SHIRTS BEFORE. It should also be pointed out the shirt for sale is not bedazzled, which means this was a pre-meditated buy. +1 for the theory that Taylor never spills anything.

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