There are only two episodes left of The Carrie Diaries, which means Friday nights will soon be less fashion- and Sebastian-filled. I am upset about both. Last night's episode featured Carrie making moves at Interview and, as always, looking very stylish while doing so. We spoke to the show's costume designer, Eric Daman, about what Carrie wore.

The show opens with Carrie and Sebastian walking in Washington Square Park and stumbling across a grisly scene: a hawk eating a pigeon. No thanks! Eric gave us major deets on Carrie's coat (the third week a patterned coat opens the show, BTW): "OMG. Are you ready for a real behind-the-scenes secret? Carrie Bradshaw is wearing Blair Waldorf's Chloe coat! Fabulously, I might add. Totally making it her own. I was in love with this faded-floral Chloe coat, and while wrapping Gossip Girl, I just knew Carrie could breathe a second life into it, so I 'borrowed' it from Blair Waldorf's closet! When I read this 'walk and talk in the park' scene between Carrie and Sebastian, it seemed like the ideal moment for this gorgeous coat's second coming. To give it true Carrie Bradshaw appeal, we paired it with a wide-brimmed hat, knee-high Sergio Rossi boots, and Melie Bianco color-blocked bag. Actually, it kinda feels a little Serena-y now that I take a second look! LOL!"

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.

The Carrie Diaries

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.

Did you see what Kristin Cavallari wore to the Salt premiere in Los Angeles last night? It was scandalous and revealing in the best way possible! The former star of The Hills rocked a gray dress with spiky shoulders a deep, DEEP cowl neck by designers Phillipe and David Blond of the fashion label The Blonds. She looked so bold. And confident. And as soon as we saw this photo of her we thought ... we've seen this look before. Not once. TWICE. Rihanna wore a red version back in November after her record release party in New York, and we also spotted it on Kim Cattrall when she played Samantha Jones in Sex And The City 2 a few months ago. The power of one dress with dangerous shoulders! So, we caught up with the design duo today to find out more about their popular design. Read on to find out what inspired them to create this look. Plus, who do you think wore it best — Rihanna, Kristin, or Kim? See who the Blonds picked below. Read More...

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