So, the rumors weren’t true…Blake Lively can’t attend the Chanel Fall/Winter 2011 Ready-to-Wear show in Paris because of a scheduling conflict with the Gossip Girl shooting schedule – not because she thinks celebrities shouldn’t sit front row. Whew!
Since she couldn’t make it to the show, Blake Lively hosted a dinner in Paris at the Chanel couture salon, complete with performance by Florence Welch of Florence and the Machine. A pink rose décor and three course meal by a two-star Michelin chef set the scene for the who’s who of fashion elite including Lou Doillon, Karen Elson, Anna Wintour and her daughter Bee Shaffer, Julia Restoin Roitfeld, Chanel spokespeople Anna Mouglalis (bags, fine jewelry and watches), Elisa Sednaoui (glasses) and Chanel’s brand ambassadors Leigh Lezark, Caroline Sieber.
It sounds like it was a lovely event. Dear Chanel, please bring on some blog ambassadors and please let moi be one!
