The best part about the event is that a portion of sales benefited Save the Children and the Stamford Family YMCA.

Before Justice participated in the ribbon cutting with Lord & Taylor President Liz Rodbell, AOL.com had the pleasure of catching up with her about the event, her dream role and more.

Check out our full conversation below:

Why were you excited to partner with Lord & Taylor on this reopening?

I was really excited to partner with Lord & Taylor, because not only is tonight benefiting a great charity -- Save the Children -- it's also going to be a great store opening. They've revamped things, and who doesn't love going to a great department store during the holidays?

Speaking of holidays, what's the best and worst gift you've ever received?

One of the best gifts I ever received would have to be an eight-headed Christmas sweater. I took a family Christmas picture one year, and I had my mom in the sweater, my sister, my stepdad, my 98-year-old grandma at the time and two of our dogs -- so it was really fun.

I've never received a bad gift, you know what I mean? I feel like it's always just the thought that counts, [and that] makes it meaningful.

I love that. And since it's the holiday season, there are a lot of parties and dinners. If you could invite three celebrities to a dinner party, who would they be?

Ooh, if I could invite three celebrities to a dinner party, I would probably invite Kristen Wiig, because I'm obsessed with her, and she's hilarious and would be the comic relief of the evening. And then I'd also invite Paul McCartney because I would just love to ask him so many questions about songwriting and the life he's lived. Then I would also invite the Dalai Lama just to have a good balance there and have some good wisdom and great insight.

What is your dream role and/or collaboration?

Acting wise, something that just randomly came to my head recently -- I think it would be really fun to do a remake of "Flashdance." And I would love to play Jennifer Beals' character. I love singing and dancing and acting and doing all three, but it would be really fun just to predominantly do a dance film. I think I would have so much fun doing that.

[As for] someone I would want to collaborate with musically, I would love to do something with Lily Allen. I'm such a big fan of hers.

Speaking of dancing, would you ever do "Dancing with the Stars"?

I don't know if I would do "Dancing with the Stars" -- definitely not at this point, I don't think.
