We Found It! A Jumpsuit that Flatters Every Body Type

11/13/2014 at 06:00 AM ET

We’ve been hunting for the perfect black jumpsuit for a long time. Like, a really long time. The length of time might have something to do with the fact that our standards are really high. The jumpsuit has to be perfect: crazy-flattering (on a variety of body types, not just tall thin ones), sexy, wearable with a bra we already own (no shopping for some wacky, uncomfortable bra or stick-on situation), comfortable and dance-friendly, not more than $100 and machine washable. Yes, machine washable. We told you: We’re demanding. Well, it took a while, but we finally found one. Behold, the perfect jumpsuit:

So, let’s recap: It’s flattering. We had a bunch of staffers try this on and they all loved how they looked in the design. The material is stretchy, but by no means skin-tight — it skims your curves in just the right way.

It’s sexy. Check out that neckline.

And yet: It doesn’t require some insane bra.

It’s comfortable (see: earlier note on stretchy material) and dance-friendly (take it from this editor, who broke out some of her best moves in the jumpsuit).

It costs 100 bucks — less if you use our exclusive discount code, STYLE15, which gets you 15% off, bringing the price down to $85.

And yes, it’s true: This jumpsuit is machine washable. Can we get a hallelujah?

Oprah Winfrey Reveals the Biggest Challenges of Making M.L.K. Biopic Selma

Get ready to see more of Oprah this Oscar season! She produced and costars in Selma, a film about about Martin Luther King Jr.’s historic 1965 march for voting rights – and the movie (out Christmas Day) is winning big buzz after its first screening this week.

But it wasn’t the easiest film to pull off – starting with casting one of the most important figures of the 20th century.

Star David Oyewelo “is the reason I came on board,” Winfrey told the audience during a Q&A after the film’s premiere at the AFI Fest in Hollywood.

“David and I became fast friends when we did The Butler together and he told me that this had been his dream for a very long time.”

“I was putting my two cents in all the time and then they said ‘Why don’t you just join us as a producer?’ ” she said. But even having a powerhouse media mogul like Winfrey involved didn’t mean that production was smooth sailing.

One challenge? The heat in Atlanta (where the film was shot) combined with the period wardrobe.

“[There were] hundreds and hundreds of extras wearing wool clothes in 104-degree heat walking across that bridge again and again and again,” Winfrey said. Despite being uncomfortable, Winfrey and everyone making the film had a strong sense of purpose, she added.

“People were there doing it because they felt, first of all that they were a part of something that was bigger than they.”

Aside from the heat, another uncomfortable situation arose when the film’s crew had to ask some of the white extras to scream racial slurs at the actors to convey the racial tension of the time.

Winfrey said at one point: “I remember one woman saying, ‘You really want me to say it out loud? You want me to say that word out loud?’ “

Oyewelo gives all the credit for turning the movie into a reality to Winfrey – along with Brad Pitt, whose company Plan B also produced the film.

“This is how you use power that has been afforded you,” Oyewelo said. “To get things done that otherwise wouldn’t be.”

Downton Abbey’s Elizabeth McGovern Is in a Band

11/13/2014 AT 09:10 PM EST

Turns out, Cora Crawley can rock!

Though she plays the upper-crust aristocrat on Downton Abbey, in real life, Elizabeth McGovern spends her free time jamming with her folk/country band, Sadie and the Hotheads, and can be heard singing on the upcoming – wait for it – Christmas at Downton Abbey album, out Nov. 17. So what exactly does a Downton Abbey Christmas album sound like?

“It’s just a really nice collection of Christmas songs done in a classical way, with the Budapest City orchestra and a beautiful choir,” McGovern tells PEOPLE. And cast members singing! McGovern does a solo version of “It Came Upon a Midnight Clear,” as well as a duet of “The First Noel” with fellow Downton cast mate Julian Ovenden who plays Charles Blake, one of Lady Mary’s two new suitors. (Ovenden, a professional singer, has several other solo songs on the album.) Jim Carter, who plays Carson, does a spoken-word version of ” ‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.”

“I’m not even a big Christmas person, but I do love the music,” McGovern says. “If you separate them from that association, they’re really just beautiful songs. ‘The First Noel’ is a stunningly well-written song, and so is ‘Little Drummer Boy.’ “

As for her side project, Sadie and the Hotheads, McGovern says she’s been jamming with them for more than 10 years, but now credits the hit TV show with allowing her to pursue music more seriously.

“It was just the thing I would always do privately with myself and the people I play with,” she says. “If it hadn’t been for the show, we wouldn’t have crossed paths with this agent who has gotten us great gigs like opening for Sting at the Monterey Jazz Festival. “It’s weird, but Downton has opened the door for me to have a place in music.”

Eva Green: 5 Things to Know About the Penny Dreadful Star and Campari Calendar Cover Girl

11/13/2014 AT 08:45 PM EST

“I love the one where I’m on the moon,” Eva Green remarks as she flips through her Campari calendar images with PEOPLE. “The astronaut outfit and the hairdo is really cool. And the Negroni shot, where I’m in a Vivienne Westwood courtesan outfit, has such a laid-back, romantic mood.”

The Penny Dreadful star, 34, is the face of the liqueur’s 2015 calendar, shot by Julia Fullerton-Batten and celebrating the stories behind the brand’s classic cocktails. With only 9,999 copies printed each year, the calendar never goes on sale but is instead distributed to friends of Campari.

“It’s such an iconic brand and very artistic,” Green tells PEOPLE of her decision to do the shoot. “I remember the pictures with Penélope Cruz – they were quite beautiful.”

Julia Fullerton-Batten for Campari

Here are five things we learned about the former Bond girl (R.I.P. Vesper Lynd) while in London last week for the launch.

1. She’s a bit of an introvert.
“I’m so boring,” Green tells PEOPLE with a laugh. “I’m such a homebody. I’m not into going to parties because I never really feel comfortable. I’m a bear who lives in a cave.”

2. She has a (fraternal) twin sister.
“My sister isn’t identical so it’s not as fun [as it could be]. If she looked like me … if I was really bad at math, she could go and take the test for me,” the Sin City star jokes. “Our lives are very different. She has two children, lives in Italy and has the perfect life.”

3. She’s currently hooked on True Detective.
“I’m a big fan,” says Green, although she admits that she isn’t completely clear on the “time is a flat circle” concept. “I don’t understand every single thing Rust says but I know what’s going on – the main points! I’m in awe of Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson – I think they’re just so fabulous, a great couple.”

4. Her favorite vacation spot? South Africa.
“I went on safari through Kruger National Park, down there at the end of the world. It was just the most magical place – nature, animals,” she explains. “The silence … it’s like you’re waiting for a dinosaur to show up. It’s just the best thing ever.”

5. Her costars are as charming as they are cute.
“I love Harry Treadaway. He’s such a pure, innocent soul and I adore him. Josh Hartnett is so nice and also very cool,” says Green of Penny Dreadful‘s main men. “Timothy Dalton is fabulous. He’s a bit of a father figure as well – he gives me advice in real life.”
