LIVELY


Honestly all, I'm still bitter over the fact that Gossip Girl isn't coming back until mid-April. I NEED A WEEKLY DOSE OF THE DAPPER CHUCK BASS TO FUNCTION PROPERLY. But anyway, I like Blake Lively in this. A lot. It reminds me of Portman in Black Swan when her evil split-personality twin swan turns around in the mirror to look at her good yet crazy real swan self (you just got INCEPTIONED). But one cannot fathom the immensity of the HUH I'm thinking - is this really a Chanel ad for the Mademoiselle handbags? It seems so...un Chanel-like...even though Karl himself shot it. Whatever.

Back to Blake: there are times when I want to berate her, and there are times I want to be her. And right now, I want to BE HER. If I had the opportunity to wear that bag and furry jacket anywhere -well, anywhere people would not point and laugh and think why a teenage girl is wearing haute couture while buying tomato bisque at the supermarket- I would don it IN A SECOND. The ad is so elegant, so ladylike, and so flattering. Thumbs up. Excellent move by Chanel.

I couldn't imagine a more suited model for Chanel. She's the epitome of elegant with an edge.

Great description and so true. Very un-chanel...however, change is good and I am loving the bag line. I think Blake is perfect being the face of this campaign...

Ah, I agree with you!
Honestly from the very first moment I heard she was going to do a compaign for Chanel.. I thought it was just a very bad rumour, yeah not so much.
I don't like it at all, think Blake is a cute, "smiley" girl next door.. but "next door" is far away from Chanel.
I get that Blake wants to lose her Gossip Girl image, I just don't see it work here. X
