Gossip Girl actress Blake Lively caused a big stir last week when it was announced that she was to become the face of Gucci’s new fragrance Gucci Premiere, a scent inspired by Gucci’s atelier gowns. The blonde bombshell is a Chanel darling, having been plucked by Karl Lagerfeld himself to star in a Chanel handbag campaign as well as don the iconic French fashion house’s frocks for high profile red carpet events. Jumping ship from one prolific brand to another isn’t a crime in our book, although loyalty should be honored, unless of course, she ran it by Karl before accepting the Gucci offer.
The image for the Gucci ‘Premiere’ campaign featuring a glamorous Blake, who just bought a house with beau Ryan Reynolds in Bedford, New York, looking like an iconic Hollywood actress, appeared in today’s Women’s Wear Daily and my jaw dropped. She is va-va-va-voom stunning, solidifying her as one of the Hollywood blonde bombshells.
