Blake Lively Named Official Chanel Ambassador

The fashion world’s obsession with Blake Lively continues: the Gossip Girl star will play the role of Chanel ambassador. Karl Lagerfield chose the actress for her old-fashioned good looks and natural star quality.

“She’s a kind of American dream girl,” said Lagerfeld of Lively, pictured at the launch of Lorraine Schwartz’s ‘2BHAPPY’ jewelry collection at Lavo NYC on November 22. “I think she will become a great actress.” The designer had already named Lively the face of the next purse ad campaign and felt she embodied the Chanel woman. Congrats Blake (and dry your tears Leighton).
