More Images & Video of the Chanel Mademoiselle Bag Campaign Featuring Blake Lively

More shots of the Mademoiselle bag ad campaign, featuring Blake Lively, have been revealed. The 3 new photos show Blake with three different bags – one black Mademoiselle bag, one light blue (or grey?) Mademoiselle bag, and the third looks like either a small clutch or wallet.  All the photos are taken on the legendary staircase at 31 Rue Cambon.  These photos are just as lovely as the first three we saw last week.  What do you think?  Which do you like better?

View the first look at the Blake Lively Mademoiselle Bag ad campaign.

There’s also a short product video that just features the bag – no Blake Lively – I guess they save the longer product films with actresses for their fragrance campaigns.  Nonetheless, the video does a nice job of showing us the beautiful quality and details of the Mademoiselle bag – while also reminding you of the other Chanel products you can fill your bag with.

I wish I were in Paris pretty much every day of the year, but I especially want to be there this week!  From now through the 10th, Colette and Chanel have teamed up to provide one of the coolest shopping experiences ever.  Fortunately, Susie Bubble of Style Bubble checked out the shop and took some nice photos so I will be living vicariously through her… sigh.  All images are from StyleBubble.com – Merci!

I want everything pictured below.  I’m so sad I’m not there.  For more descriptions of all the prettiness and to hear about it from someone who’s actually seen it, please visit Style Bubble!  Oh, and the last image is of a new Coco tee by Dear Dana that Colette recently added to their webstore – I like it but it’s a $100 t-shirt.  I’d rather put that money toward the Coco doll!!  If anyone knows if that doll is for sale, and if so for how much and how to get one please let me know!!

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!
