Chanel’s Métiers D’Art Paris-Dallas Show Came with a Surprise: Kristen Stewart Was Named the Campaign’s New Face

Texas was filled with fashion last night as Chanel staged its latest Métiers D’Art Paris-Dallas show in the state at Dallas Fair Park. Attendees who turned up to celebrate with the brand included Kristen Stewart, Dakota Fanning, Lily Collins, Zoë Kravitz, Lauren Hutton, and Alexa Chung.

Guests were welcomed with Fritos pie, spiked cherry lime-aid cocktails, ice cream and popcorn stands, along with rows of vintage American convertibles parked for a Chanel drive-in movie. The evening started with a short film, The Return, which details the story of Coco Chanel’s 1954 comeback. It was written and directed by Chanel’s head designer and creative director Karl Lagerfeld, and stars Geraldine Chaplin as Coco Chanel. Some of the guests, including Stewart and Fanning, were seated in the classic cars to watch the entertainment, drive-in movie style. Next, Lagerfeld presented Chanel’s 2014 pre-fall collection on a hay-scattered runway in a venue so perfectly designed for the Western theme, it seemed straight out of the old Wild West. The runway looks were Americana-inspired, and featured tweed, fringe, feathers, pearls, and unsurprisingly, lots of denim.

In addition to the festivities, the brand also announced that Kristen Stewart would front its campaign for the pre-fall range. The ads will be shot by Karl Lagerfeld himself and are slated for a May 2014 release—and we can’t wait to see them!

Meow! Miranda Kerr, Heather Graham, and More Celebrate Animal Print at the Opening of Roberto Cavalli’s New Boutique

The Just Cavalli store was awash with loud prints and a very fashionable crowd last night at the flagship boutique opening in New York City. Guests including Heather Graham and Miranda Kerr sipped on cocktails made with Roberto Cavalli Vodka while DJ Mad Marj spun tunes by M.I.A. and Katy Perry.

Designer Roberto Cavalli arrived with Kerr on his arm, and everyone flocked to congratulate him on the boutique’s grand opening. “Just Cavalli is so sexy, so young looking. I’m excited to see the young, bright American girls wearing Just Cavalli. They will understand it,” Cavalli told InStyle.com exclusively.

“He just has a great spirit about him,” Kerr, dressed in a floor-length animal-print Just Cavalli gown, told us. “His clothes fit and are wearable, but still sexy.” After exploring the store (which features one wall covered in floor-to-ceiling fringe and a suspended flight of stairs covered in transparent python print), guests took in the pre-fall runway show that followed next, where models emerged from the lower level, making a loop around the store and then outside onto the street for passers-by to see.

The collection was signature Cavalli, featuring richly colored leather and striking patterns, including animal print. “It is the usual for me. It is my beginning,” the designer said of why he often uses the vibrant pattern. “I take my animal print from the real photo of the animal that I shoot. That is the secret to my animal print!”

Say Cheese! Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep Are All Smiles at the Premiere of Their Film, August: Osage County in L.A.

Julia Roberts and Meryl Streep were all smiles at the L.A. premiere of their new film, August: Osage County and they sure had reason to. Not only are the two leading ladies nominated for a Golden Globe (Streep for Best Actress and Roberts for Best Supporting Actress), but they also received both SAG and Critics’ Choice Movie Awards nods, including Best Ensemble nominations for the film’s cast featuring a roster of Hollywood’s biggest names—including Ewan McGregor, Dermot Mulroney, Benedict Cumberbatch, Juliette Lewis, Julianne Nicholson, and more.

Back in September, InStyle caught up with Nicholson during the Toronto International Film Festival, where she spoke candidly about working with the big cast. “Everybody is so lovely and funny and it was that way immediately,” she said. “It probably started with Julia and her openness and excitement about doing the movie.” The cast brings Tracy Letts’ Pulitzer Prize-winning play onto the big screen, which is based on a trio of sisters (Roberts, Lewis, and Nicholson), who reunite at their Oklahoma home with their dysfunctional mother (Streep) due to a family crisis, and what follows is a touching, comedic story about family. The film opens in theaters everywhere on December 25th.

Kristen Wiig On Her New Auburn Tresses: “I’ve Always Wanted to Go Red!”

Last week, we did a double take when Kristen Wiig stepped out with pretty new auburn locks, and at a screening of The Secret Life of Walter Mitty last night at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City, hosted by The Cinema Society & Brooks Brothers, she shared the inspiration behind her sassy new hue. “I’ve always wanted to go red and I’ve never done it before,” she told InStyle.com. “It was just sort of [one of those things] where I’m not working right now and it was sort of like, ‘Okay yeah, I’ll just go for it.’” So does being a redhead make her feel like a new person? “Yeah!” she said with a straight face, then in the typical comedic Wiig style that we love, started laughing. “Well, no. Not really.”

In the Ben Stiller-directed 21st Century comic epic, about a man named Walter Mitty (Stiller) who escapes his everyday life by stepping inside his own over-active imagination, Wiig plays the co-worker and love interest of Mitty.

Catch a glimpse of Wiig in The Secret Life of Walter Mitty when it hits theaters on Christmas Day. As for her amazing coif, we can’t wait to see what kind of styles she will rock during the upcoming awards season.

I found rare japanese fashion brands and lots more on Rakuten Global Market!

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Rakuten Global Market for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Are you like me, tired of shopping at the same ol run of the mill websites for clothes and gifts? Yes, familiar sites have some good items but I'm really over seeing other people with the same pieces as me! I had begun to think there was no way I could get around this problem  until I discovered Rakuten Global Market, an online market place with over 40,000 vendors from Japan.

I am a big fan of japanese fashion so I was thrilled to see some of my favorite rare brands for sale like Hysteric Glamour (picutred above) and Tsumori Chisato! The prices are great too. I almost can't believe I found these Tsumori Chisato pants below for $57.57!

I really like that at first the print on these pants looks like an abstract leopard print but on when up close you can see that it is actually an array of aquatic shapes done in all black. It is easy to spend hours browsing around Rakuten because they have way more than just sweet clothes. They also have electronics,food,toys, car and motorcyle supplies and even beauty products! I followed the simple steps of entering my name, email address and agreeing to the terms and conditions and now I'm all set to purchase gift or three for myself and some for others naturally.  I know this year my gifts will stand out in a crowd when my family and friends wear them out proudly. If you need to ensure that your giving quality unique gifts this year I urge you to Explore Rakuten Global Market to see all that they have to offer! I know you will love it!

What kind of special gifts are you looking for this year? Let me know in the comments below
