Blake Lively's fashion star keeps rising. She's a three-time Vogue covergirl (including covering the mag's special "Best Dressed" issue), bosom buddies with Christian Louboutin, looks fly without a stylist (that's right, I said 'fly'), and now she's snagged the most coveted campaign: Chanel.
E!'s Mark Malkin is has it on good authority that the Gossip Girl star was just in Paris shooting a handbag campaign for the Kaiser. Plus, we have our own proof: In American Vogue's December 2010 issue, Anna Wintour makes a reference to Karl "scouting" Blake. The ad campaign should run early next year.
Lively has made her love for the brand known, attending the Fall/Winter 2010-2011 couture shows this past July, and stopping by the opening of Chanel's SoHo store in September.
While we were perplexed about Vogue's seeming obsession with Lively, this campaign cements her status as a fashion star. Kudos Ms. van der Woodsen!
