Shontelle's video for her single 'Perfect Nightmare' just dropped last week, and in it, the 25-year-old singer shows off a number of looks, such as oversize shirts with no pants and high, high ponytails. But in real life, it's a different story. When Shontelle stopped by the MTV Style studios recently, she told us she tries to be "sensible" about fashion. "I don’t know if I would say I’m a diva about anything style related, but I just really love to be fab," she says. "I love to feel really good about myself and confident, and fashion affects that a lot." As for heels: "I love to be fierce, but I also like to be comfortable. And heels really hurt," she explains. But, as every lady knows, there are exceptions. And for Shontelle, that means squeezing into a pair of stilettos every so often. "I will, every once in a while, sacrifice my soul for the sake of fashion," she says. "And I will be in immense, tremendous pain just for the sake of fabulosity." We agree — no pain, no gain!

Madonna on daughter Lourdes Leon's style: "She's also worked in the wardrobe department on some of my tours. I love the way she puts different things together that are sometimes unexpected. She's the fashion police at our house and has a point of view on what everyone is wearing. I'm not saying we agree on everything but we enjoy collaborating together." {USA Today}

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