She's come a long way from Gossip Girl! Blake Lively is the new face for Chanel Mademoiselle handbags and the new ad campaign photographed by Karl Lagerfeld is up on the Chanel site. Chanel typically goes for Europeans, and mostly French women for their campaigns so Blake is the first American to be a face for Chanel. The collection features the new "bowling bag" stye handbag in a variety of sizes, as well as a line of wallets. I tried on a couple of these bags recently and liked how you can easily access the bag contents without having to open a clasp, yet the bag is still secure when closed unlike a tote bag style.
Here's all the sizes in comparison:
My favorite is this red patent calfskin small bowling bag for $2500. Visit the Chanel Mademoiselle site for more info on individual styles/fabrics and prices.
