Jessica Chastain Reveals the Best Gift She’s Ever Received (And It Will Surprise You!)

In a behind-the-scenes video filmed during the photo shoot for our January 2015 issue (on newsstands now), cover girl Jessica Chastain spills on the greatest gift she’s ever received. While she admits it was difficult to decide on just one, she settled on something every teen dreams of getting: a car (though it was far from shiny and new).

“This is going to be a hard question to answer because my family is very into giving gifts,” Chastain says in the video above. “I remember I got a car when I was 16, which was huge. It was a beautiful, used green Volvo that I named Vern. That was probably, like, the most exciting gift I’ve ever had.”

Not only is the star grateful for the gifts she’s received over the years, but she’s also a pro at giving them, too. “Last year I surprised my family—they all opened boxes at the same time and it said, ‘We’re going to Disney World tomorrow’ if you added up all the words. That was the most fun I’ve ever had and I filmed it all,” she says. “That’s probably the best vacation I’ve ever had, and my favorite moment of gifts.”

What Lady Gaga Wears to Walk Her Dog May (or May Not) Surprise You

When it comes to outrageously bizarre, eccentric style, Lady Gaga’s sartorial reputation definitely precedes her. Mother Monster is not one to hold back on stage or the red carpet—she approaches fashion with the intention to shock more than anything else. Remember her polka-dot tentacles and Kermits? And who could forget her infamous meat dress? Naturally, we wouldn’t expect her everyday looks to be any different.

And how right we are: She was snapped walking her Frenchie, Asia, in two out-there outfits. Unlike her fellow celebrity dog-owners who tend to gravitate toward classic denim skinnies and comfortable separates, the singer opted for metallic sky blue suit separates with statement shades and nude Schutz pumps (above, left) while out and about in Montreal on her ArtRave tour.

Several days later, she landed in Toronto and pieced together another look, with Asia in tow. She topped off her white-and-blue tuxedo suit with Jerome  C. Rousseau heels and a dramatic oxblood Victorian overcoat that boasted an ornate collar and puffed sleeves. Leave it to Lady Gaga to turn an ordinary task into a serious fashion statement.

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!
