With the nominees for the 53rd annual Grammy Awards announced last night, it looks like music’s biggest evening is going to be one stylish affair! From Rihanna and Katy Perry, to the always outrageous Lady Gaga, (who can forget her futuristic Armani Privé dress from last year’s awards?) we can’t wait to see what over-the-top ensembles these nominees will be wearing come Feb. 13. Will Rihanna turn to her AMA designer of choice Elie Saab, or channel her bad girl persona with something more scandalous? Will Katy Perry take to the stage in yet another Latex costume? With fellow nominees Beyoncé, Miranda Lambert as well as Lea Michele and her Glee cast, also in the running, we’re sure this will be one contest–for both song and style!–that will be well worth watching. See the full list of nominees at, and start placing your fashion bets. Tell us: Whose Grammy look are you most excited to see?Jessie Goldberg

Eva Longoria Parker to Pull Off Eight 'Way Out' MTV EMA Outfits

Much like her fiery and always fashionable onscreen Desperate Housewives character, Gabrielle Solis, Eva Longoria Parker is also promising to stir things up, at least stylistically speaking, as the host of the upcoming MTV Europe Music Awards on Nov. 7. “Music awards are always pushing the limits of fashion, so anything goes,” she tells MTV in a promotional interview. “There is kind of a double license to wear what you want. Normal rules don’t apply. So, I’m going to try and see if I can pull off some ‘way out’ outfits.” And while Eva is looking forward to testing the fashion waters at the upcoming event in Madrid, she also fesses up to some outrageous ensembles from the not-so-distant past. “I wore a skimpy pink swimsuit at the MTV VMAs in Miami in 2005. That was pretty daring but I think I carried it off,” she says. And her ultimate fashion cringe-worthy moment? “I wore a leather outfit to the premiere of Tomb Raider. That was a real fashion faux pas!” Although Eva has had just a few red-carpet ‘what was she thinking?’ moments, one designer that she’s definitely going to don for the show never disappoints. “One thing is for sure, I will be wearing one of Victoria Beckham‘s dresses. She’s a good friend of mine,” she says. See the fashionista get into the music groove in her rap video below and tune in to MTV2 on Nov. 7 at 9 p.m. ET to watch Eva in her many outfits at the EMAs! –Jessie Goldberg

From the wacky face paint to the all-over body glitter, it’s pretty clear that pop singer Ke$ha doesn’t really care what’s cool, which is exactly the look she is going for! When it comes to her style–and her new album– Ke$ha tells, “It’s a celebration of being broke and not really caring what other people think.” And although the 22-year-old star has belted out musical hits that have heated up every dance floor across the country, you won’t find her spending her Hollywood paycheck on designer clothes. “It’s pulling from vintage, it’s pulling from contemporary, it’s pulling from the garbage…” she says about her outlandish clothes. Check out this video where the quirky Ke$ha will introduce you to her garbage-shopping secrets. And to hear more from Ke$ha on her beauty routine and how she removes all that glitter, visit –Jessie Goldberg

Demi Lovato and the Jonas Brothers are getting ready to go back to camp–in style, of course! In preparation for Disney’s upcoming original movie, Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam–premiering September 3–the film’s costume designer, Mona May, gave PEOPLE the inside scoop on Demi and the boys’ onscreen looks. “The Jonas Brothers have a certain look and they like to keep that look while blending it with the character and more casual outdoorsy feel for the setting of Camp Rock,” said Mona, who found fashion inspiration in iconic bands like the Rolling Stones and The Mamas & The Papas, to create the stars’ cool artsy look. And for the leading lady? “Demi Lovato wanted to use a lot of vintage and have a feel of very funky and classic 1960s rock influence,” revealed Mona. “She loves wearing dresses so we did that making sure that she can perform all the dance numbers.” We can’t wait to see Demi and the Jonas Brothers moving and shaking through Camp Rock 2 in their cool clothes! –Jessie Goldberg

It looks like we’ll be seeing twice as much of Lady Gaga and her statement-making styles before the year is out! Madame Tussauds has confirmed to PEOPLE that the superstar will be immortalized with her very own wax figure, set to be unveiled at the museum’s New York CIty location–as well as additional figures in undisclosed cities–before year’s end. And while it may have been easy to choose signature styles for fellow body doubles like Marylin Monroe and Kim Kardashian, choosing just one iconic look for Gaga out of the hundreds of over-the-top ensembles, might prove to be a true fashion challenge. Will Gaga’s multiple figures feature her outrageous headgear or her barely-there bodysuits? If you think you know which Gaga look should be set in wax, visit to voice your fashion voice and point them in the right direction.

When it comes to fashion, Good Charlotte’s Joel and Benji Madden seem to have mastered the laidback rocker vibe, and with the launch of their new Mad Picks capsule collection, the musicians are suggesting that the ladies follow suit. Teaming with Macy’s private brand American Rag, the guys have handpicked items from the collection for a limited-edition collaboration–just in time for back-to-school shopping! The line features on-trend boho vests, torn denim, and embellished tops. “I don’t care how a girl dresses, nothing is sexier than a girl who is confident, feels good about herself, and does things her own way,” says Joel, who is engaged to style maven Nicole Richie. “I love it when a girl can take simple basic pieces and wear them with her own style.” When it comes to their own unique look, it’s all about clothes that can be dressed up or down. “We like a T-shirt you can throw a jacket over for dinner,” adds Joel. “It’s important for us to have clothes which we can both walk on stage or relax at home.” Starting September 11, the brothers will have a chance to flex their style muscle on stage, when they perform in a series of free concerts at select Macy’s stores, showcasing tunes from their new album Cardiology, due November 2. Mad Picks will launch at select Macy’s stores and on August 25! –Jessica Herndon and Jessie Goldberg

Katy Perry Gets 'Hearts Racing' in Her Skin-Tight Jeans

While Katy Perry might have declared “daisy dukes with a bikini on top” the signature uniform of “California Gurls”, the quirky singer is trading in her bedazzled Diesel short-shorts for a new pair of jeans from the Italian brand: The Livier 65Z 5-pocket jean leggings style! In her new music video for “Teenage Dream,” Katy shakes it on the beach in the new jeggings. Hugging her famous curves in all the right places, these new jeans are sure to “get your heart racing,” as Katy croons in her new song. And just like her Swarovski-covered daisy dukes, Katy put her own finishing touches on these Diesels by slashing tiny holes in the legs. While the pop star might be the first person to own this brand new style of Diesel jean leggings, she won’t be the only one! Come November you can get your hands on your own pair for $170 in Diesel stores worldwide and at —Andrea DeSimone
