Chanel loves Blake

Serena or I mean Blake Lively, debuts her first Chanel ad for the new Mademoiselle handbag line. At only 23 years old, she has been called the next golden star, It-girl, or an American dream girl. However, it is Karl's evident love for her that he personally photographed her for this campaign right at Chanel’s famous headquarters on the Rue Cambon on that iconic mirrored staircase. I was definitely expecting more from this cover because it just feels like the same Blake Lively we see from her show and the red carpet. That could be the campaign's perspective I suppose and we just have to wait for the rest it too.

I guess the rest of the industry definitely feels the same way and finds in her the perfect look that is easy to relate to. 

They first started liking her when she went to the Met Ball in 2009 wearing a one-sleeve blue Versace gown, with a slit nearly up to her hip bone and her cleavage spilling out of the neckline.
"That was when it all started," Vogue style director Alexandra Kotur told the Times.
“She has this East Coast-West Coast way of combining things that is very original,” Ms. Kotur added. “She’s a Malibu girl who can wear Chanel, and that’s where it’s really that bi-coastal chic that no one else has in America right now. She shows cleavage, she’ll show some leg. And it’s sexy.”
The editor of Allure, whose second Lively cover was the magazine's best-selling issue, thinks the Lively appeal is even more simple than that:
She’s a living, breathing human being who smiles,” said Allure’s editor, Linda Wells. “And you think, why would that be so hard? Who knew the non-rebel would suddenly feel rebellious? Then you add that to the fact that she’s not going to get arrested and she’s not going to shave her head or end up in rehab, but she goes out enough to be visible. It’s kind of a perfect situation for designers and editors. She’s a safe bet.”

And as the growing woman that she is, she thinks that the the Mademoiselle handbag is 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.’ ”

Do you love her as the brand's newest ambassador?

Is there more to the knockout body and big smile?
