Blake Lively Chosen As Chanel Ambassador

In news that will likely make the masses of Gossip Girl fans run to Chinatown for the closest Chanel knockoff, The Cut Blog reports that Karl Lagerfield has asked Blake Lively (star of the teen drama) to be a Chanel ambassador for Chanel's Mademoiselle handbag line.

Karl Lagerfield explains that Blake Lively is "a kind of American dream girl." From her effortlessly tousled hair, mile long legs, and easy smile, she inspires the love (and envy) of young women everywhere. There is no doubt that the campaign ad that features Blake Lively with a particular Chanel purse will turn that purse into the most wanted counterfeit item in America.

Blake Lively perhaps can explain why regular girls may flock to buy the fake: it is a brand that is "timeless, chic, graceful, intelligent, iconic and ever relevant." While it remains safe to say that a fake can never be those things, it doesn't stop some girls from trying.

Perhaps it is because of the magic that some designer pieces inspire. Blake Lively describes a Chanel purse in these words: "I will always feel it’s more than just a purse. It’s a quilted case full of lipstick, love letters and the dreams and possibilities that I have always felt every time I see that beautiful ‘CC.’?"

However, even though Blake Lively claims that she will carry it "like every girl," it is safe to say that at an average price of easily thousands of dollars, average girls may just have to dream.
