How lucky is the cast of Gossip Girl? Other than Little J, who was condemned to being the “poor girl from Brooklyn turned grubby rebel outcast”, everyone always gets to wear the latest trends way ahead of everyone else. So ahead that during the time they’re filming, us mere mortals aren’t even aware of the trends Blair and Serena are creating for us!
This Jimmy Choo Lara bag is the perfect type of printed hobo bag to carry to school or work. Blake’s dark trench and worried look gives hint that the directors were shooting some heavy scenes for the show in New York. The Jimmy Choo handbag adds a touch of elegance to the look and the printed scarf prevents the outfit from being too mournful.
A point to note is that the protruding black part of the bag is just an optical illusion! The black top appears as though it’s part of the bag but is in fact a Marc Jacobs laptop sleeve. However, don’t be disappointed – this just goes to show how much you can stuff in this multi purpose bag. You can use it while traveling and still look as stylish as Blake does.
Just don’t forget to make your tresses as va-va-voom as hers to complete the look.
This spring, no one is schooling us better in the art of color blocking than Blake Lively. Sure, she’s probably had the help of a professional stylist or two, but she still looks amazing in this colorful outfit and eye catching clutch. It even looks as though it’s cozy and comforting to hold.
The bright blue bag the Gossip Girl star is clutching was designed by Emily Cho. The turqouise python double folded clutch perfectly complements the lime trench coat, from the Spring 2012 Reed Krakoff collection. The baby pink shoes add a softness to prevent the outfit from becoming a tad too loud and bold.
Judging by the blonde beauty’s wide grin, she knows she looks great just as much as we do!
This spring, British superstar TV presenter Fearne Cotton has been spotted many times with her beloved Mulberry Taylor Oversized Satchel. The bag was previously seen on American It girl Blake Lively, who’s often toted around by fashion heavy weights Karl Lagerfeld and Anna Wintour. Blake Lively’s jump from successful actress to fashion It girl is slightly ironic, considering that her look is effortless on the show Gossip Girl. Costar Leighton Meester plays Blair, a character who quickly became a fashion icon in teen circles as well as beauty blogs and fashion mags. Unfortunately for Leighton, it’s the effortless Serena’s real life persona who’s more magnetic in the field of fashion. Maybe that’s why Fearne took a cue from Blake’s book and got her hands on this vibrant Mulberry bag.
However, Fearne has no need to be a copycat. She’s a brand ambassador for the fashion house Mulberry and they even dressed her for Kate and William’s royal wedding. The pretty blonde’s often seen toting a Mulberry bag and this is just one in her countless collection. Recently, Fearne even auctioned off one of her Mulberry bags for charity. Clearly this one’s become a favorite since the star’s been seen with it so many times. Perhaps the quirky, irresistible color is what draws her to the bag.
Say what you want about Blake Lively, but there’s one thing you can’t deny—she’s officially the sweetest celebrity ever. A few months ago she sent cupcakes to Burberry’s Christopher Bailey as an apology for missing his show. Now, she’s waxing poetic about Chanel’s recent Resort 2012 presentation.
Seriously, there isn’t a bad bone in Blake’s body! She says:
“Every piece just made me smile. My mood was every single bit of that collection. The hardest part was thinking ‘I want to wear every single thing here.’ I never thought I’d be able to come to a Chanel fashion show, let alone be here working with them and be stood here wearing Chanel couture. This is so special.”
Based on these comments, it’s pretty easy to see how Blake charmed Karl Lagerfeld!
Are these people mad? We just heard that the business people over at Chanel are unhappy about head designer Karl Lagerfeld’s choice to make Blake Lively the face of their latest handbag collection “Mademoiselle”!
There has been grumbling about the fact that Blake doesn’t really suit the classic Fashion house and we are hearing rumors that she has been accused of having an “off brand look”. What is that supposed to mean anyway? We are so glad that Karl Lagerfeld got his way and gets to put whoever he wants for his ad campaigns, we totally agree with him that she is the All-American dream girl! (NewYorkDailyNews)
Blake Lively is skyrocketing to becoming a fashion muse for the world’s most prestigious fashion houses. Check out the first look from her new ad campaign for Chanel’s Madmoiselle Handbag. The photos were taken by the formidable Karl Lagerfield himself.
Blake Lively attends the Chanel dinner hosted in her honor during Paris Fashion Week on Saturday (March 5) in Paris, France.
Also attending the event: Vogue editor Anna Wintour and her daughter Bee Shaffer.
Earlier this week, Blake, 23, who’s the current face of Chanel’s handbag line, made an appearance at another dinner party hosted by French fashion house.
“Fashion was always part of her life because we were a family of shopaholics,” the Gossip Girl star’s mom, Elaine, told the New York Times. “In junior high, she wanted to go shopping all the time at Forever 21. It was a big deal to go to Bebe and Guess.”
FYI: Blake is wearing a Chanel dress with Christian Louboutin shoes and Lorraine Schwartz jewelry.
Blake Lively tries to keep warm on a freezing day in New York City as she films an upcoming episode of Gossip Girl.
Blake was looking stylish wearing a Ralph Lauren Blue Label Simon Patchwork Coat, Ralph Lauren brown leather boots and carrying a Bordeaux Louis Vuitton Hazier Satchel.
Do you ever get tired of drooling over the fabulous gear the “Gossip Girl” cast gets paid to wear? Nah, me neither. Especially when the wardrobe department includes this divine Mulberry Bayswater bag in gorgeous grey suede. I’d trade my liver for this baby, and I love the way it works with Blake’s beautiful jacket. Such a lovely look for fall!
