Two-time Oscar nominated actress Jessica Chastain arrived at Lincoln Center on Thursday night with a stack of note cards, fully prepared to interview none other than iconic fashion head honcho, Karl Lagerfeld. Half an hour before the interview, however, Lagerfeld terrifyingly told Chastain he wanted to "improvise," instead.

The meat of the conversation came in the form of Lagerfeld's early life as a designer, which he discussed freely to a room full of fashionably hungry ears. His big break, he explained, came at the age of 21 when he won the 1954 International Wool Secretariat prize for his sketch of a coat, chosen out of 200,000 entries. And so, Largerfeld's love for drawing served as a perfect segueway to that ofRead More »from Karl Lagerfeld Tells Jessica Chastain How He Got His Start in Fashion (And that No, He Doesn't Own Sweatpants)

It's no question that the country music A-listers certainly brought their A-game to Nashville for last night's annual CMA Awards, wowing on the red carpet in some seriously dazzling gowns. Whites, ivories and creams-as seen on Carrie Underwood and Lucy Hale, for starters-were a dominant trend, while more prominent shades like crimsons and cobalts also made a much-appreciated repeat appearance.

There are a lot of good reasons to follow our editor-in-chief, Eva Chen, on Instagram: for outfit inspiration, a glimpse inside the Lucky offices or-my own personal favorite-for her top-notch beauty advice. In her feed, you'll find images of her tried-and-true skincare regimens, her latest adventures in nail polish and must-have products. Recently, she shared a group shot of her favorite face oils that left me exceptionally intrigued. I needed one, that was clear. But why? After some research, here's what I learned:
First off, face oils will not leave you feeling greasy or looking extra-shiny. They will, however, make your skin look glowy and radiant, increase firmness, moisturize, even out your complexion and even help with acne. These unreal results are due in part to the fact that oils sink into your skin quicker and penetrate deeper than other types of skincare treatments.

For all its classic appeal, tweed is sorely underrepresented in many women's closets-perhaps because of its inherently mature, even corporate connotations. But you needn't look further than the bevy of beautiful stars who turned up at last night's Chanel/MoMA party in honor of Tilda Swinton to see just how versatile-and yes, youthful-the nubby fabric can truly look. Take recent birthday girl Alexa Chung, for instance, whose snow-white dress was buttoned-up yet totally fresh. Or fellow Lucky obsession Lorde, who made the Upper East Side-adored fabric jive with her own dark, dramatic aesthetic.
