Earlier this week we showed you the first ad image that was shown online of Blake Lively in the Chanel Mademoiselle handbag campaign. Today, Chanel News released behind the scenes images and The Cut showed two more ad images. The other ad images feature bags in other colors and Blake Lively looks gorgeous in them. It looks like my hunch was right and Karl Lagerfeld shot the ad on the staircase at 31 Rue Cambon. What a lucky girl! Blake is the face of Chanel handbags AND she got to see the legendary staircase (and probably the apartment too!).
I must say though, the behind the scenes photos are just as beautiful. Shot in black and white, I think they are strong enough to be ads as well – in some ways I prefer them. What do you think?
