Chanel “It Girl” of the moment, Blake Lively, is the face of the new Chanel Mademoiselle handbag campaign. This past weekend, Lively hosted a dinner to launch the new handbag line and now images from the ad campaign will start surfacing in magazines this week through June.
I like the ad, Blake Lively is a beautiful woman so Karl Lagerfeld had a relatively easy job photographing her. I love the mirrored background – the panels of the mirror are reminiscent of the mirrored staircase at 31 Rue Cambon (maybe it was even shot there?). The ad is simple and the red Mademoiselle handbag really stands out – a nice addition to an already excellent collection of handbags.
