V Magazine is totally delivering!
The glossy's 100th issue is right around the corner, and just to tease fans, they've been releasing pics of their star-studded issue, one day at a time!
We're having supermodel overload!
Shot by Karl Lagerfeld, the designer anointed each of the ladies with class superlatives like "Team Captain", "Most Likely To Succeed", "Class President", "Valedictorian", and "The Graduate" respectively.
It seems like there will be even more additions in the print issue, but for now, this quintet will have to do!
Ch-ch-check out a peek at their editorial in the gallery (above)!

We see you, Kristen Stewart!
The Twilight star landed an impressive new gig as the face of Chanel makeup's 2016 Eyes Collection! The 25-year-old joins the likes of Keira Knightley, Gisele Bündchen, and Blake Lively as an ambassador for the brand.
Talk about good company!
This doesn't come as a huge surprise though — KStew is one of the fashion house's creative director Karl Lagerfeld's all-time favorites. In the past, she's fronted clothing campaigns and even attended the Casino Royale–themed fashion show in 2015 alongside Cara Delevingne and Lily-Rose Depp.
In her new role, the El Lay native will appear in a black-and-white portrait series shot by celeb photographer Mario Testino which is set to debut in March.
Chanel explained why the American Ultra actress was the perfect fit in a statement:
"With her modern, magnetic beauty, and free spirit, Stewart appears in a series of portraits embodying various facets of the contemporary Chanel woman."
Bravo! We can't wait for more!

There's no shortage of celeb kids to envy today.
Well, okay, she does acknowledge that she's lucky, at least.
Speaking with LOVE magazine, the 16-year-old fondly recalled early memories with the French brand's main man:
"Chanel has always been this big thing for me—there are baby pictures of me wearing my mom's Chanel pumps. I have been lucky enough to know Karl [Lagerfeld] since I was eight—yes, half my life. I have been so lucky to be around him and just talk to him. He makes people feel great. He is a presence. He's very perceptive; I really feel like he understands people."
Karl sure seems awesome, considering how many famous friends he has.
Everyone's always itching to be in his orbit!
Can you picture the 81-year-old and this teenager having long and deep conversations???

Not another one!
Fashion designers and accusations of tax evasions go together like a Chanel suit and a pearl necklace. LOLz!
Karl Lagerfeld is the latest big-name couturier with the government on his heels with claims he's withheld $21 million from them over the past six years.
AP reports that Unkle Karl has been accused by French officials of using tax havens like the British Virgin Islands, Ireland, and Delaware (Delaware's a tax haven?!) to hide up to $21.5 million.
The microscope is focused on Karl's Studio 7L bookstore slash photo studio in Paris, which supposedly doesn't make any money, hence not paying any taxes.
But authorities are definitely not buying that explanation!
We'll keep you posted as this case unfolds.

That is some SERIOUS bedhead.
We're not sure what's going on exactly. Has it been brushed? Has it been washed? Is this the future of hair and we just don't get it?
From other angles it looked like the right side was much shorter than the left, and the left side featured this, er, bird's nest-inspired arrangement.
You know the drill, guys! Let's put it to a vote!

Watch Kristen Stewart Pay Tribute To Coco Chanel In The First Teasers For The Once And Forever Film!
In two newly released teasers for the Karl Lagerfeld-directed film Once and Forever, the 25-year-old actress shows what's to come dressed in the designer's garb and preparing her scenes.
The famed designer slash creative director even gushed about Kristen capturing the role:
"I think she's one of the greatest actors of her generation. She gives the right emotion and the right intensity immediately so it's very easy to work her, like it's easy to work with Geraldine [Chaplin]."
The flick is set to be released for December 1, and will be available only on Chanel's site or at the upcoming Métiers d'Arts show in Rome.
But until then, take a peek at the high-fashion, 11-minute short by pressing PLAY on the video above AND below!
The 2016 Met Gala details are in!
The theme of the night — taking place on May 2 — is Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology. It will focus on the juxtaposition between "handmade haute couture and machine-made fashion."
As described by Andrew Bolton, curator of the Met's Costume Institute:
"Traditionally, the distinction between the haute couture and prêt-à-porter was based on the handmade and the machine-made. But recently this distinction has become increasingly blurred as both disciplines have embraced the practices and techniques of the other."
Inneresting! We can't wait to see what outfits celebs *cough* Kanye West *cough* come up with!
The exhibit, which is sponsored by Apple, will display more than 100 ready-to-wear pieces of couture, as well as numerous "in process" workshops, one featuring a 3-D printer for attendees to take for a spin.
Sounds like a night to remember!
