Blake Lively Jumps From Chanel to Gucci

Blake Lively, the face of the Chanel Mademoiselle bag collection last year was hand-picked by Frida Giannini to be the face of the Gucci Première fragrance – named for the Gucci couture line started in 2010.  The interweb is abuzz with this and I thought I would share my two scents (ha! pun intended).

Beautiful as she is, I never really considered Blake Lively a “Chanel” girl and I think she’d be a better fit for Gucci.  I think the problem is that it seems too soon.  Many models and celebrities lend their faces to different products – I just think the timing is not so great here.  In the end, I think Chanel wins in this scenario because it opens up the bag line to be represented by another beautiful face. I just hope Blake didn’t ruin it for the rest of the American ladies.  What do you think about all this?

  1. I agree, I didn’t think Blake Lively was a good fit either. I think her Gossip Girl co-star Leighton Meester has more of the qualities of a chanel representative (but I think she advertises Vera Wang perfume, so perhaps wouldn’t be chosen.) I also really like Rachel Bilson, I know that KL shot her in his Magnum ice-cream adverts and I think she would be great as new face of Chanel.
