Last night on Total Ariana Live, the singer announced that she'll be performing at this year's VMAs. Upon learning the news, our first thought was: YAAS! Our second thought was: What will she wear?!

Though she's no stranger to the spotlight, the former Nickelodeon star has only been making her own music for a year—but what a year it's been! Since performing at the VMAs pre-show last year, Ariana has dropped hit after hit and taken the stage at basically every important event ever. We don't know what's skyrocketed the most in the last 12-ish months—her fame or her style.

Below are a few of our fave looks from Ariana's performances–peep them and then join us in guessing what she'll wear on August 24!

When Ariana dropped "Problem," her destined-to-be song of the summer, she debuted a new swingin' '60s look that appears to take a page from Nancy Sinatra.

Arianators, how you doing? Did you enjoy Total Ariana Live? How's your pulse after hearing "Break Free" for the first time and finding out Ariana Grande will be performing at the 2014 VMAs? Now that we're sure you're OK physically, can we talk about how much you loved Ariana's modern monochrome outfit?

The singer traded her mod performance wear for a blank tank top, flouncy white skirt, and–most surprising–black heels. Too hot for boots, eh, Ari? Her hair was in its trademark half-up/half-down 'do and looked, despite the unrelenting humidity in New York, totally sleek. It swayed with her as she and her dancers had a dance party for the premiere of "Break Free," and made me totally jealous–my hair has been tied back as tightly as possible for days.

No one is more excited for the Fourth of July—the glorious holiday where everybody shoots off illegal fireworks and eats too many hamburgers in celebration of America's independence—than Ariana Grande.

Yesterday while taping her performance for the annual Macy's 4th of July Spectacular, she took the patriotic dress code to heart by wearing a very festive party skirt in a stars and stripes print that resembled both a flag and the kind of picnic tablecloth your mom uses on the Fourth of July. She paired it with an understated white crop top, her signature top pony, and probably these boots, but we'll all just have to tune in to the performance to know for sure.

It's been a while since we saw Ariana Grande perform in anything other than black and white, but last night at the 2014 MuchMusic Video Awards she broke out some major sequins. Goodbye monochrome, hello sparkle. Ariana performed "Problem" in a matching crop top and skirt with her hair lookin' quite voluminous in its perma half-up/half-down 'do. She did, however, bring one element from her mod "Problem" looks with her to Canada—dem boots!

Let's all say it together: FINALLY! Ariana Grande has been teasing us with sneak peeks of her "Problem" music video for an eternity now, and today is the day that our dreams became a reality at last. The hyped vid launched at 4pm today (true to Ariana's Twitter countdown), and it's everything we hoped it would be.

But enough waiting. Let's dive right in and dissect this bad boy...

The video opens on a sparkling figure. We can't see her face yet—who could this mystery woman be??

Surprise! It's Ariana. She's looking expectedly retro in a sequined minidress and white go-go boots. Also, notice that signature spiral backdrop that's been in ALL of her Instagrams lately.

While we wait anxiously for the official "Problem" music video to debut (oh, the torture!), Iggy Azalea and Ariana Grande continue to give us previews of the vid's seemingly 1960s-inspired mod theme. The latest sneak peek came at Saturday's Wango Tango concert, where Iggy and Ariana performed "Problem" in some seriously retro gear.

For her ensemble, it looks like Ariana borrowed the EXACT same mini and crop-top combo from the "Problem" video wardrobe. And, of course, she paired the outfit with her signature knee-high boots—only this time she went with one black and one white boot to mix it up. Twist!

Yeah, we're excited for this video.

Ever since Ariana Grande started dressing like Nancy Sinatra back in April, we've become increasingly excited for her "Problem" music video with Iggy Azalea. We assumed the vid would be filled with 1960s flair, especially since Ariana wore go-go boots to perform the song at the iHeartRadio Festival. There's also the fact that the mod aesthetic would make ANY music video spectacular.

Ariana Grande belted out her latest single at tonight's iHeartRadio Awards, and we couldn't find a single "Problem" with her performance (see what we did there?). Not only did the tiny powerhouse sound phenomenal, but her wardrobe was just as fabulous as we were hoping it would be. She opened with her hit "The Way," strutting around in an oversized black sweater. Then, after transitioning to "Problem," she lost the sweater to reveal a black sequined minidress. Both looks were paired with white, '60s-leaning go-go boots and a sleek high ponytail.

"No pants, no problem" - The White House (probably)

Ariana Grande is no stranger to evocative fashion, but her personal style has taken on a VERY sultry edge as of late. The pop star has traded in her side ponytails and A-line skirts for go-go boots and big hair. On Monday (April 21), she performed at the 136th Annual White House Easter Egg Roll in an oversized purple sweater and white knee-high boots that would make Nancy Sinatra very proud. In fact, Grande's whole steez as of late is giving us major flash backs to the woman whose boots were made for walking.

Sure, the Oscars at the beginning of the month brought an end to traditional awards season, but Nickelodeon's Kids' Choice Awards usher in the 2014 spring/summer season—one marked by shorts and miniskirts, bright colors, and beachy waves. The temperatures might still be lurking in the high 40s on the northern east coast, but the PYTs on the KCAs orange carpet are helping us get inspired for warmer weather.

Nick girl Ariana Grande paid homage to the network with a little orange shift dress. Rather than exactly matching the carpet (and the awards blimps!), the latter half of "Sam & Cat" opted for a lighter tangerine. Her dress wasn't the only part of her outfit repping for Nickelodeon: Her quilted Chanel purse, which she tweeted a closer picture of, was customized with iconic Nick cartoon characters from Rugrats, Hey Arnold!, Catdog, and Aaahh!!! Real Monsters.

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