THIS IS IT, PEOPLE. HALLOWEEN IS UPON US. We have arrived at the spooky weekend where everyone let's their inner diva shine through with their costumes. That's why we've showed you different ways to dress like a diva all week — Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Ke$ha — but we'll leave you with this stunner diva to bring you into the weekend: Miss Taylor Momsen. The 'Gossip Girl' star and The Pretty Reckless singer dresses like Halloween everyday, with crazy eye makeup and crazy outfits. Here are three ways to dress like Taylor Momsen:

Taylor's black panda-like eyeliner has become her signature. And it's easy to re-create this look. Grab some Bedhead eyeliner (Taylor told Interview magazine that it's her favorite) and layer it on ... and on, and on. Swipe on some black eye shadow to fan out the black to the upper lids.
+ Eye Shadow: M.A.C Eye Shadow in Black Tied ($6.50)
+ Hair Dye: L'Oreal Super Blonde Creme Lightening Kit in Super Bleach Blonde #205 ($9.99)
+ Eye Liner: Bed Head Big Fat Fun! Eye Liner in Black ($16.00)

We're not endorsing the idea of wearing lingerie in public, but that's what Taylor Momsen does. So if you want to channel her provocative look, grab a bustier corset dress (like this one from Topshop), then sew on your own pyramid gold grommets to get the rocker Taylor look.
+ Dress: Long Line Bustier Corset ($80.00)
+ Stud Add-ons: 1/2" Gold Pyramid Studs ($6.00 for 100)

Taylor Momsen loves these shoes — her infamous stripper tip jar shoes. We felt dirty even Googling these! And we're certainly not endorsing them for you. But, alas, if you really want to get the full Taylor look from the makeup to the clothes, then these shoes will finish it off. It's not something that you could possibly rewear any other day than Halloween, but should you have the guts to go there. It's totally Taylor.
+ Shoes: Pleaser Tipjar Shoes ($57.45)

Halloween is soooooo close! We know because our cravings for tiny bags of peanut M&Ms skyrocketed today. Sadly, that means you have only a few more days to finish your costume! That's why we're showing you how to transform yourself into a hottie diva this year, D-I-Y style. So far, we showed you how to dress up as Katy Perry, Nicki Minaj, and Ke$ha. Today, let's take a look at another one of our faves, and the ultimate Halloween diva — Lady Gaga. While every day is Halloween for Gaga, you only get one day to turn yourself into the ultimate Little Monster. Here are four ways to dress like Lady Gaga:

Wearing white after Labor Day isn't a taboo if you're Lady Gaga. Snag some white pants, a white blazer, a white bra, and put it all together to get Gagaloo's Today Show performance look, which was designed by Giorgio Armani. Don't forget to add a sparkly feather headband and some rhinestones to the bra to make it truly Gaga.
+ Blazer: Central Park West Grommet-Detail Blazer ($47.70)
+ Bra: Calvin Klein Perfectly Fit Tailored Customized Gel Lift Bra ($24.99)
+ Pants: Spiegel Signature Stretch Sateen Collection: Wide-Leg Pants ($39)
+ Headband: Sparkly Feather Headband ($6.80)
+ Rhinestones: Swarovski Rhinestones ($11.59 for 144)
+ Glue: Aleene's Glitter & Gem Glue ($3.49)

This look requires a little bit of work, but it's worth it. You need a lot of basics, like a leotard, fishnet tights, a headband, and gloves. Then, all you do is bedazzle the crap out those four pieces with iron-on rhinestones. Voila! You're Gaga. Add a long gray wig to make your look official.
+ Leotard: Basic Moves Black Long Sleeved Leotard ($26)
+ Tights: Betsey Johnson Black Solid and Knit Fishnet Tights ($18.00 for Two Pairs)
+ Wig: Gray Wavy Wig ($10)
+ Headband: Pyramid Stud Headband ($32.00)
+ Gloves: Mossimo Driving Gloves With Pyramid Stud ($17.99)
+ Rhinestones: Swarovski Rhinestones ($11.59 for 144)
+ Glue: Aleene's Glitter & Gem Glue ($3.49)

During Lady Gaga's Monster Ball tour, she wore this hot little outfit: A purple leopard-print leotard with matching sparkly purple circles drawn around her eyes. You can create this look yourself by picking up a purple leotard and using leopard print iron-ons to get the pattern on it. Then, throw on a half-yellow, half-bleached white wig, some gloves, and a pair of fishnet stockings, and you're ready to call yourself Lady Gaga. Remember to grab a pot of purple glitter and smear some around your eyes.
+ Leotard: Mirella By Bloch Double Cross Back Leotard ($31.03)
+ Iron-on Heat Transfers: Lee Hiller Designs RAB Rockabilly Leopard Print Gold and Brown Iron on Heat Transfers ($13.99 for a 10" Transfer)
+ Wig: Blonde/Yellow Two-Tone Wig ($14.99)
+ Gloves: Patricia Field 5-Finger Half Gloves ($48.00)
+ Glitter: LASplash Face Body Glitter in Purple Passion ($4.49)

We can't blame you if you don't want to prance around a Halloween party jiving to 'Monster Mash' in nothing but an itty-bitty leotard. That's why this Lady Gaga look will work for you. It's not Lady Gaga exactly, but Lady Gaga inspired. Channel her gloriously over-the-top Alexander McQueen look from the 2010 VMAs and wear a floor-length red dress. Throw on a chunky bib necklace to give it some spunk. Make your own gold feather headdress by pasting feathers on a gold headband. Finish the look with Gaga's greige nail polish, which is so. hot. right. now.
+ Dress: Victoria's Secret Flirty Muti-way Dress in Scarlet Red ($89)
+ Necklace: Brown Topaz Black Jeweled Bib Statement Necklace Set ($35.99)
+ Headband: Duo Braided Headband ($4.80)
+ Feathers: Yellow Indian Feathers ($1.49 for Six)
+ Nail Polish: Essie Nail Polish in Merino Cool ($8)

It's Halloween week! You have just four more days to whip together an outfit ... which is basically NO TIME AT ALL. That's why we're showing you how to create some costumes D-I-Y style, so you can dress like some of the hottest divas of the year. So far, we showed you how to dress like hotties Nicki Minaj and Ke$ha. Today, let's take a look at another one of our faves: Katy Perry. It's time for a dose of glitter, "California Gurl" style, and lots of candy references! Here are five ways to dress like Katy Perry:

This is one of our top Katy Perry looks because it's so easy to pull items from your closet to make this outfit. Take a ruffle skirt (like this one by LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl's) and match it with a rhinestone-covered tank (it doesn't have to be pink!). That's pretty much it! Don't forget to hit your local candy store for a Whirly Pop to make it totally Katy-icious.
+ Shirt: Old Navy Rib-Knit Embellished Tank in Think Pink ($14.50)
+ Skirt: LC Lauren Conrad Ruffle Skirt in Pink Ash ($29.99)
+ Candy: Rainbow Whirly Pop ($14.29)

Have two parties to go to and don't want to wear the same outfit? We know — it's a conundrum. Here's an idea: Recycle the rhinestone top from the first Katy look and pair it with a pair of sequin blue shorts. Add some pink earrings and high heels and you made two outfits out of one! (For a simpler look, go for denim shorts, rather than sequin ones.)
+ Shirt: Old Navy Rib-Knit Embellished Tank in Think Pink ($14.50)
+ Shorts: Blue High-Waisted Sequin Shorts ($49.99)

Katy Perry has made latex dresses HER THING this year. So, make it your own! Take a shiny spandex dress from American Apparel and cover it in candy-shape add-ons. With this look, you can reuse the dress way past Halloween.
+ Dress: American Apparel Nylon Tricot Scoop Back Tank Pencil Dress in Cobalt ($42)
+ Add-ons: Peppermint Candy Cut Outs ($4.99)

If you only want to buy one thing this Halloween, swing for a blue wig. Everyone will know you're Katy Perry, without question.
+ Wig: Blue Glamour Wig ($9.85)

If electric blue wigs are too much look for you, go for a subtler way to wear color with extensions. Katy famously wore shades of pink, purple, and blue to the Video Music Awards in September. You can get clip-in styles that are very similar.
+ Hair Extensions: 16" easiLites Human Hair Clip in Bubblegum-Pink, Blueberry-Blue and Grape-Jelly-Lavender ($7.95 each)

It's Halloween week! And here at MTV Style, we're psyched about it! That's why we're focusing on the hottest diva costumes of the year. Yesterday, we showed you how to dress like Nicki Minaj. Today, let's take a look at another one of our faves: Ke$ha. Cheers to glitter, trash bags, and face paint! Here are five ways to dress like Ke$ha:


Ke$ha at NBC's 'Today' on Aug. 13.
Photo: Jemal Countess/Getty Images

This is Ke$ha's signature look: denim cutoff shorts, a vintage T-shirt that she cut up herself, black combat boots, and various forms of studs all over her clothes. So, pull out your summer clothes and go for it! Take a T-shirt (any tee will work) and start slashing it all over (note the scissors above). Then, pull out some denim shorts (or pants, and cut 'em off), and pull on some combat boots. You're set to go! For added Ke$ha flavor, sew on some gold studs to your shorts and top.
+ T-Shirt: Metallica Harvester Black T-shirt ($16.95)
+ Shorts: Tribal Embroidered Denim Shorts ($18.90)
+ Studs: 1/2" Gold Pyramid Studs ($6.00 for 100)
+ Boots: Steve Madden Abee Lace-Up Boot ($249.95)

There's nothing that Ke$ha loves more than glitter. She lathers the shiny stuff all over her body for all of her performances, and many of her red carpet appearances. She wears glitter so much that if you do nothing else but put glitter on your face for Halloween, we're fully convinced that you can call yourself Ke$ha without question. If you want to take her look one step further, get yourself a spirit hood (or a hat that looks like the head of an animal) and make your Ke$ha costume undoubtedly official.
+ Glitter: Hot Topic Sequin Body Glitter in Silver and Gold ($3.99 each)
+ Animal Hoods: Leopard SpiritHood ($129.00) / Cheap Alternative: Leopard Animal Hat ($31.99)

Ke$ha surprised many by wearing a tiger mask when she visited a salon in New York City over the summer. If you wanted an easy superstar costume of your own that's under $10, this is it.
+ Mask: Deluxe Tiger Mask ($8.99)

The trash bag-inspired outfit Ke$ha wore to the 2010 Video Music Awards this year could be totally do-it-yourself. Grab some black trash bags (the hefty ones, so they're not see-through!) and cut leg, arm, and head holes into one. Drape it around your body and cinch it tight with tape or a belt. Then, all you need are the accessories: a feather boa, cross earrings, and a turquoise ring.
+ Bags: Ultra Tuf Black Trash Bags ($4.99)
+ Boa: Deluxe Large Black Feather Boa ($2.41)
+ Earrings: Lucky Brand Hammered Hoop Cross Earrings ($35.00)
+ Ring: Bita Pourtavoosi Big Turquoise Chunk Ring ($50.00)

Ke$ha's must-haves are glitter and .... FACE PAINT!!! So, don't forget it, even if you are wearing glitter. Grab some costume makeup so you can pull primary colors (rather than drugstore makeup) and paint animal-inspired looks on your face — slashes, stripes around the eyes, stars. Go all out.
+ Makeup: Mattese Elite Stage Makeup Wheel ($14.99)

It's Halloweeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeen week! Here at MTV Style, we love, love, LOVE Halloween. It's a time to break out your glitter and wigs, and let your inner diva out to play. That's why we're dedicating this week Halloween Diva Week, and showing you different ways to dress up like your favorite pop star divas. Today, we take a look at one of our faves: Nicki Minaj. Here are three ways to dress like Nicki:

When Nicki Minaj performed at the Video Music Awards pre-show, she overloaded on metallics, and shined her ass off, literally. She wore a pink and purple metallic bodysuit, designed by Marco Marco, with knee-high custom Chanel boots. Get the look by pairing a purple bodysuit with a pink leotard, and then wear a pair of black boots, which you can get on the cheap. Don't forget your pink lipstick; it's Nicki's favorite color right now.
+ Lipstick: M.A.C Dazzle Lipstick in Naughty You ($14.50)
+ Boots: Chinese Laundry Kingdom Boot ($69.95)
+ Leotard: Fornarina Guss Fuchsia Body ($27)
+ Bodysuit: Purple Shiny Metallic Bodysuit ($20.70)

This look you can score by pulling some key pieces in your wardrobe together. Just pair white shorts with a white tee and snap on a pink bra underneath. To get the Nicki flavor, get some gold foil and layer pieces all over your white outfit (or you can use safety pins for the same effect), then add some temporary tattoos in Chinese character (just like Nicki!). Don't forget to load up on green eye shadow.
+ Shirt: American Apparel Jersey Short Sleeve T-Shirt Leotard in White ($28)
+ Shorts: Adidas Sport Basic Slip Shorts ($30)
+ Gold Add-ons: Gold Foil Pleather ($14.99/yd)
+ Makeup: Buxom Stay-There Eye Shadow in Shih Tzu (gilded lime green) ($17)
+ Bra: Victoria's Secret Miraculous Push-up Bra in Hot Pink ($49.50)
+ Fake Tattoos: Japanese Character Temporary Tattoos in Happiness, Friends, Courage and more. ($0.55 each)

What's so amazing about Nicki's style is that she can go from funky metallic to cute and classy seamlessly, which is what we see here in her beige Lura Starr jumpsuit backstage at the 2010 Video Music Awards. To score this look, find a cute beige jumpsuit, like this one from Topshop — a great piece because it's not a Halloween-specific item and you can wear it long after Fright Night festivities. Then, it's all about beauty — a pink wig and pink nail polish finish off the look.
+ Jumpsuit: Feather Print Cowl Back Jumpsuit ($125.00)
+ Wig: Hot Pink Wig ($19.99)
+ Nail Polish: M.A.C Nail Lacquer in Steamy ($13.00)

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