Mon Dieu! Chanel’s newest face, Gossip Girl star Blake Lively, is a (double!) vision in her new advertisement for the brand’s Mademoiselle handbags, released Monday. Shot by Chanel’s Karl Lagerfeld in the company’s Parisian headquarters, the photos are the first in a series that will appear in April magazines. Lively’s new role was announced in January, when Lagerfeld called her “kind of an American dream girl.” The actress was humbled, saying the opportunity to front the campaign was more than a “dream come true.” After the photo shoot, an in-awe Lively whipped out her cell phone and shot her own picture — this one of Lagerfeld behind the lens, reports WWD. “I have such a respect for fashion and such an appreciation for it that if there are people like Karl Lagerfeld out there designing, who am I?” she told the publication. “I want to bow down to them and be a representative for them if they’ll have me.” Seems that adoration has paid off! Tell us: What do you think of Lively’s first Chanel photo? –Kate Hogan

I really don’t understand why she’s so popular. Not at all strikingly attractive … just kind of plain looking. Very overrated.

I love B.L. She really is doing what MANY women would love to do – model for Chanel. I don’t believe that her arms are truly as skinny as they appear in the ad (due to the fashion industry’s appeal towards photoshopped ads), but if they are – who cares? For those that are hatin’ on her, that’s her body type. You can’t talk bad about someone’s looks if that’s what their genetic makeup blessed them with. It’s International Women’s Day, let’s CELEBRATE each other instead of criticizing eh? (;

I like Blake Lively’s 1st Chanel PHOTO! This is great to hear!

It's true on

Have you watched her on GG? She’s stunning with a killer body. I’d trade places with her. I love her.

Does she ever use a different facial expression. Boring as always.

I’ve always like Blake because she wasn’t overly skinny, she’s just very pretty. But as of late she’s looking too skinny, get some meat on those bones again Blake! This too skinny look is not helping you sweetie.

Andre on

Blake I want you to stay skinny. Do not get no meat on you. Skinny is the new thing. Stay small. It looks better.
