Blake Lively: Chanel's New Girl

We saw this coming a mile away—Blake Lively has been tapped as the new star of the Chanel handbag campaign. So now she’ll have tons of fabulous purses to go with all those Louboutins!

According to E! Online, Blake is the new face of the French fashion house, and just returned from Paris where she was shooting an ad for the new handbag collection.

Blake Lively: From Gossip Girl to Fashion Icon

Lively has been moving on up in the fashion world, becoming Anna Wintour’s new muse and landing on the cover of Vogue twice in one year. The two were spotted together at the Christian Dior Fall/Winter 2010-11 fashion show during Paris Fashion Week held at Musee Rodin on Monday back in July.

That same week Blake sat front row with Karl Lagerfeld at his Fall/Winter 2011 Couture show in Paris. In September, she hit the reopening of the Chanel store in Soho.

Blake’s ads are expected to start running early next year. Ok, jealousy has officially hit an all-time high!
