Shot by Fashion Guy Karl Lagerfeld himself, Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively stars in a new Chanel ad campaign promoting the brand’s Mademoiselle collection of handbags.
The Mademoiselle Bag was introduced for the 2011 Cruise season and ranges in price from $2,000 to $3,300.
Blake appears in the Spring/Summer 2011 promotional campaign, photographed in and around Coco Chanel’s old apartment in Paris France.
“I have such a respect for fashion and such an appreciation for it that if there are people like Karl Lagerfeld out there designing, who am I? I want to bow down to them and be a representative for them if they’ll have me,” Lively told Women’s Wear Daily Monday.
Though she loves acting and modeling, Blake’s still got her heart set on one day walking her gorgeous gams through the front door of her own restaurant.
“I do plan to open a few restaurants one day. I will be the chef, I will create the menus, I will decorate…”
Lively, 23, joins current Chanel amassadors Anna Mouglalis, Audrey Tatou, Keira Knightley, and Georgia May Jagger.
