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.

Ellen joins the shirtless trend.

• Ellen DeGeneres is the latest celeb to get in on the no bra, no shirt, no problem trend. She dressed up as Nicki Minaj for Halloween, copying Minaj's fave way to be: shirtless.
• Miley Cyrus also got into the Halloween spirit and found a costume that combined two of her fave things: pasties and onesies. What could possibly combine those two things? Y'know, Lil Kim's infamous mermaid pasty outfit from the 1999 VMAs.
• Ariana Grande managed to look both comfortable and terrifying in her vampire costume. This vampire can go straight from sucking your blood to bed in the same outfit. #practicality
• Nicki Minaj joined Miley in the pasty Halloween game, pairing her set with a leather harness and fishnets. Nicki wasn't lying: she really hates bras.
• Lady Gaga looked a little pale in London. JK, she looked really really pale. She was also covered in corn husks.

As all good Directioners know, One Direction's "Story Of My Life" video is dropping on Sunday. 2 days. Yep. Prepare your minds and viewing areas. In anticipation of the video, the boys have been sharing photos of themselves on set, which has been transformed to look like their respective homes. In the pic that Niall shared, he's wearing a very familiar red, white, and blue cableknit
sweater jumper (I'm getting used to the lingo I'll have to use around my husband, Harry). It's one he wore as a flushed bb in Ireland! It makes an appearance in This Is Us! Missing from the present-day photo? His bride-to-be, Katy Perry!
Something tells us that between the title of the song and this repeated outfit situation, this video is going to be verrrrry nostalgic. Will they all wear clothes from their pasts? Will they try to fit into pants they wore when they were 5? They should, because most of their pants are ripped. I mean, 3 of the 5 lads (#lingo) had ripped jeans on the cover for Midnight Memories. Childhood pants may be small, but they're also fully intact.
It's only fitting, right? If going sans shirt AND bra is a trend, you have to find some way to cover up your ladylumps given, y'know, laws. Enter pasties. Nicki Minaj used black plus signs to finish off her Fifty Shades of Grey Halloween look while a sparkly purple pasty was integral to Miley Cyrus' "Lil Kim circa the 1999 VMAs" costume.
Rihanna and Demi Lovato are back from the dead.

While a bunch of celebs dressed up for Halloween yesterday during daylight, a few saved it for night, when their costumes would make the biggest impact, creepiness-wise. Rihanna and Demi Lovato are two of said celebs who kept their costumes on the DL until it was dark out and then emerged...as zombies.
We want candy.

Well, that's it folks. Another 365 days to go before you can dress up in a costume and expect copious amounts of candy to come your way (that is, of course, assuming you don't celebrate Halloween this weekend). While your IRL, edible candy situation may dwindle, you can deck yourself in candy attire all year 'round to keep the Halloween memory alive until next October. For Food Friday this week, in between handfuls of M&Ms, we scoured the 'net for the best candy clothing, etc. out there and rounded it up here for you.
T-Boz and Chilli for 'V' Magazine.

TLC is B-A-C-K and TBH, they look like they haven't aged a day since the '90s. Earlier this month, we got to talk to Tionne "T-Boz" Watkins and Rozonda "Chilli" Thomas about costuming for their recently-released biopic, CrazySexyCool: The TLC Story, and they told us that the process was actually pretty easy—thanks to their ability to preserve original outfits from the golden days and the current resurgence of '90s style. V Magazine got to chat with the duo as well, and the mag gave us the exclusive on some choice quotes from their forthcoming interview with the R&B legends.
As you well know by now, thanks to Miley as Lil Kim, Iggy as Cruella De Vil, and Ellen DeGeneres as shirtless Nicki Minaj, Halloween is RIGHT. NOW. If you don't have a costume yet, you, my friend, are a certifiable Lazy Girl™. Hey, us, too! *high fives* We're a special breed that needs to stick together, so just in case you need some help figuring out what kind of costume you can cobble together for tonight, we're throwing you a few ideas.
A VIDEO GAME MODEL

Thanks to the wide availability of Morphsuits this Halloween season (they're selling them at Urban Outfitters right now!), you can easily pull together a simple yet effective video game model costume. Cop an all-black Morphsuit then laden it with strips of yellow duct tape from your local hardware store and some ping pong balls (a.k.a. "sensors") glued to your joints! Sure, there's some assembly required, but you also don't have to do your makeup OR hair. Or you can just wear the black Morphsuit and be a ~shadow~, but this look is way cooler, TBH.
When Iggy Azalea started posting photos of Glenn Close as Cruella De Vil this AM, we had a sneaking suspicion she’d be devoting her Halloween costume to the devilish Disney villain. But TBH, we were NOT prepared for how totally and completely committed she’d be to bringing her costume to life. The split-color wig, of course, was a given. (Although, we must say, Iggy’s looks especially voluminous.) And the black-and-white duds? We expected those, too. (Although, that fur coat looks pretty legit and her silver accessories are a nice touch.) But the living, breathing Dalmatian and the IRL Panther De Ville (actual name) as her ride? Consider our minds blown.
A still from 'My Crazy Beautiful Life.'
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.
