When we heard Gossip Girl star Blake Lively would be the face of Chanel's Mademoiselle accessories we were confident she could hold her own. Now the ads have been released, and we're thrilled that this budding style icon has exceeded our expectations.
Starring in a Chanel commercial was apparently one of Blake Lively's great ambitions, and she turned down several modeling roles until the opportunity arose. Her detractors told her that Chanel only hires Europeans, but she didn't let that discourage her. We all know what they say about those who wait.
Chanel's creative director Karl Lagerfeld captured the sophisticated side of this bubbly blonde starlet. I love the way her signature gold locks have been given red highlights to complement the blood red Mademoiselle bag.
While I love the way Blake Lively looks in this ad, her presence isn't the only appealing part. The Mademoiselle bag she's carrying is stunning, with its scarlet finish and signature Chanel quilting. It doesn't stray too far from tradition, but it still feels fresh and on trend.
The new Chanel advertisements will appear in major fashion magazines all around the world this week. Are you impressed with Blake Lively's turn as fashion model?
