Blake Lively (23) is the new covergirl and ambassador for Chanel's Mademoiselle handbag lines. The campaigns are due out in April and were shot by Karl. Karl Lagerfeld knew exactly what he was looking for when he made the decision on casting. He calls her "A kind of American dream girl." Obviously blessed with killer looks, Blake is known for her fresh look, and "natural star quality."
Not only does Karl have high hopes for her ability to sell bags, but he also thinks "She will become a great actress." as she "is full of life." She can charm anyone causing everyone to fall hopelessly in love with her - or is that just Gossip Girl? No wonder Anna Wintour had that obsession with her recently. In fact, Anna was the one who introduced the two over dinner at the Grand Palasis during July couture week in Paris.
Blake was equally full of compliments for Karl and the oblong Mademoiselle bag, which comes in multiple sizes and colors. Blake describes her love of the bag as "Though I am the face of it, I will carry it like every girl. I will always feel like it's more than a purse."
Still lusting after those Louboutins.
