Will Blake Lively Attend the Chanel Show?

Word on the web is that Blake Lively thinks it’s tacky when celebs sit front row at fashion shows – even though she’s done it in the past.  The web is abuzz with rumors that she won’t be at the Chanel Fall/Winter 2011 show, but instead will be hosting a dinner in Paris since Lively is the face of the Chanel’s new Mademoiselle handbag line.  We’ll know for sure what happens on the 8th I suppose!

Blake Lively – The Face of Chanel Mademoiselle Bags

Last month, we heard rumors about Blake Lively taking on the role of brand ambassador for a Chanel handbag line.  We speculated that it may be for the Chanel Coco Cocoon collection with Blake following in the footsteps of Lily Allen and Vanessa Paradis.  Instead, WWD has just reported that Blake Lively is the face of a new line of Chanel handbags – the Mademoiselle bag.

First seen in the Chanel 2010/2011 Cruise show, the Mademoiselle bag is an oblong shaped bag featuring the brand’s signature quilting, chain strap and double-C logo.  Available in an array of colors and fabrics (cloth jersey, lambskin, calfskin, alligator, satin and shagreen), the bag retails for $2,000 – $3,300 for base ranges and over $30,000 for exotic skins.

Karl shot the campaign in Paris at the historic 31 Rue Cambon on the storied Chanel mirrored staircase that Mademoiselle herself would sit and watch her collection shows.  When asked why he chose Blake Lively, Karl stated:  “She’s full of life…She’s a kind of American dream girl…I think she will become a great actress.”

The ads for the new Chanel Mademoiselle bags will begin to surface in April 2011 magazines – I can’t wait to see the campaign!

Blake Lively the New Face of Chanel Handbags


Word on the street is that Blake Lively just got back from Paris after shooting a new Chanel handbag ad campaign set to release in the Spring.  As usual, Karl Lagerfeld took the pictures and it’s no surprise that Blake is his “it” girl right now as she’s been spotted at Chanel events lately.  I wonder if it’s for the Coco Cocoon collection?  Only time will tell – we’ll see in a few months.
