Maya Krispin shares the pieces she chose — and custom-designed — for the Grammy winner's latest video.

Meghan Trainor debuted the "NO" music video Monday — and it's a far departure from the colorful pastel hues we're used to seeing in "All About That Bass" and "Lips Are Movin." It's a darker direction, but one that Trainor wanted to embrace, according to her stylist, Maya Krispin, who dressed the Grammy winner for the video.

"Meghan wanted to keep the looks darker and sexier to match the mood of the song, which was something new for her," Krispin told Pret-a-Reporter. "Meghan also wanted to create something very different to her past videos. There were definitely '90s pop vibes involved." ('90s Britney Spears, anyone?)

With Trainor busting out her dance moves in the nearly four-minute clip, Krispin "made sure that she would be able to dance fully in whatever she was wearing."

Indeed, the new redhead danced away in a metallic gold coat by Isabel Marant ("Meghan was super drawn to this jacket. It was super light and had great movement," said Krispin), a black sequined Veronica Beard blazer and a custom crimson look by Michael Costello. The rest of the ensembles (including the black jumpsuit with the bedazzled bra and the fishnet bodysuit) were custom designed by Krispin.

After releasing the video, Trainor posted an Instagram that showed the contrast between the Easter-friendly colors from "All About That Bass" and the darker shades from "NO" and wrote, "Video is out now!!! Lmao I love this. I told them I wanted opposite colors of bass." Mission accomplished.
