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.
