Talk about bittersweet: While we’re sad to see another season of Revenge come to an end tonight, we can’t wait to see what happens with Emily (Emily Van Camp) and Daniel’s on-again, off-again engagement, not to mention the plot twists and chic sartorial choices that are sure to come. “It gets a little dark! Some hard and sad things happen,” the show’s costume designer Jill Ohanneson hinted. “A lot of what Emily had to do was very function-oriented, she has a lot going on, so expect her to look a little more casual this time.” Sounds like big things are in store for Emily—as well as Victoria (Madeline Stowe), who somehow manages to keep her outfits looking fantastic, even throughout all the drama. “Madeline has some beautiful outfits that are emotionally interesting for what’s going on in the scene,” she added. Intrigued? Watch the Revenge season finale tonight at 9 p.m. EST on ABC to find out what happens.

The most meaningful Mother’s Day presents are the ones that show mom how well you know her, but what if you’re short on time? Ivanka Trump has the perfect solution: Perfume. “Fragrance is the best Mother’s Day gift! It’s very personal, and I think we all know our mothers on that level, so it’s something we can buy for them to show that,” she told us at the New York City launch of her scent. “It’s also a great luxury, it’s something that’s truly about beauty and feeling good about yourself. Fragrance makes you feel pretty, powerful, and sexy!” Since fragrance has such close ties to memory, keep in mind the perfumes she favors, and stick to that specific scent family. But if you’re stuck, Trump’s eponymous blend of jasmine, rose, and peach blossom holds an elegant aroma she’s sure to love. Pick it up for $78 at lordandtaylor.com .

That was fast! Only days after sporting dark purple streaks at the Met Ball, Kerry Washington stepped out in gorgeous caramel highlights at the Los Angeles premiere of her new flick, Peeples. Since the change happened so quickly, we’re thinking that the violet additions were created by swiping a temporary hair color over her tawny highlights. Try out the look yourself by spritzing Rita Hazan’s Pop Color ($18; sephora.com) onto individual pieces, or tint small sections using a liquid version like Streekers ($12; ulta.com). Or, you could opt for clip-in pieces like HairUWear’s ($10; ulta.com) so you can switch things up depending on your mood.

Did you catch the premiere of Mariah Carey‘s latest single on American Idol last night? Mimi’s “#Beautiful” track is the first off of her forthcoming 2013 album, and the video features the diva—clad in a trendy cutout bikini—hitching a motorcycle ride with R&B singer Miguel. The feeling of the video hearkens back to her ’90s Mariah videos, complete with must-have Mariah elements like perfectly-hitting sunlight (like “Honey”), belly-baring tops (like “Always Be My Baby”), and spaghetti strap tank dresses (like “Butterfly”). ”I feel like this is the first record I’ve ever released that’s simmering and bubbling up,” she said in a video for The Grammys YouTube channel. “It’s a feel-good record. It’s genre-less. It’s not following a trend.” Get your Mariah fix by watching the video above.
