Gossip Girl star Blake Lively chosen as new Chanel ambassador
Gossip Girl star Blake Lively is the new ambassador of Chanel’s Mademoiselle handbag line, according to Vogue.com. In March, she will appear in the campaign shot by Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld. "She’s a kind of American dream girl... I think she will become a great actress. It (the shoot) was an easy job because everyone fell in love with her," Lagerfeld said.
Lively, 23, told Women’s Wear Daily, "Though I am the face of it (the bag), I will carry it like every girl. I will always feel it’s more than just a purse. It’s a quilted case full of lipstick, love letters, and the dreams and possibilities that I have always felt every time I see that beautiful ’CC.’"
It was Vogue U.S. Editor-in-Chief Anna Wintour who introduced the two in July 2010. Of the experience, Lively told Women’s Wear Daily, "How did Cinderella feel when she slipped on the glass slipper? How did Snow White feel when she met her Prince Charming? A dream come true is an understatement. I can say that I feel like the happiest, luckiest girl around."
Lively was critically acclaimed for her gritty role in last year’s The Town. She plays the female lead in the upcoming superhero flick, The Green Lantern.
