Chanel has confirmed rumors that Gossip Girl Blake Lively will front its next handbag campaign. The fashion house says the American actress will be the fact of its new Mademoiselle purse line.
The label's esteemed creative director Karl Lagerfeld took the photos himself at Chanel's Rue Cambon headquarters. We won't get to see the images until April, but it seems Lively's modeling turn meets The Big K's approval.
"She's a kind of American dream girl," he explained. "I think she will become a great actress. It was an easy job because everyone fell in love with her."
Vogue editor-at-large Anna Wintour introduced the unlikely pair at Paris Couture Week. Lagerfeld gave Lively a sneak peek of the new collection, never imagining where the encounter would lead.
"I took a photo of him so that I would never forget that moment. Never did I think six months later he would be photographing me," she gushed.
The Mademoiselle collection will feature five differently sized bags with distinctive rectangular shapes and Chanel's iconic chain handles and quilting. I can't wait to see them, and Blake Lively, in the new ads!
