Fashion icons and stylish actresses keep emerging each and every day: sometimes they´re here to last and sometimes they just sizzle and vanish. The latter is definitely not the case for Blake Lively. She is the fashion´s rising star: beautiful, joyful and authentic as she is, she has chosen to go her own way, she doesn´t hire a stylist, and she shows her impeccable style each and every time she appears on the red carpet. And thanks to her never-faltering confidence she can pull off any look. How did she get there?
Her self-assurance seems to hold the response. She believes in herself, she believes in what she´s doing. She simply believed that it would work out for her. When given other commercial opportunities, she always replied "Thank you so much, but I am holding out for Chanel. That´s who I want to be the face of". And guess what...it did work! Karl Lagerfelf himself has picked her to represent the Mademoiselle handbag line, talking about her as an "all American dream girl". Frankly, I DO agree, and I DO envy her fabulous and ever growing personal Chanel collection! Who wouldn´t?
I admit, that I squealed from delight when I discovered a sneak peak images from Blake´s recent Glamour photo shoot. True to her actual obsession with everything French (she even started to learn French, and I love her even more for that!) she channels this 50s Brigitte Bardot-inspired vibe that suits her "à merveille". Chanel, Louboutins and Blake Lively, that´s a combination that fulfills pretty much all my fashion fantasies! Isn´t this girl just perfect?
