Blake Lively’s Chanel Campaign Is Here

It wasn’t so long ago that Karl Lagerfeld’s BFF* Gossip Girl-star Blake Lively was declared the newest Chanel “brand ambassador” (“spokesboobs” seemed marginalizing) for the label’s new Mademoiselle handbag. Now the first image of the campaign is here (more TK, presumably) and is accompanied by the expected squall of publicity, featuring Blake Lively Talking About Her Upbeat Outlook. I am not going to hate on Lively for being permanently delighted, but I am going to share some of her WWD interview and let you be alone with your feelings.

1. At age four, Blake was “walking down the street” and decided “it’s the perfect day to be happy, and I never really lost that.”

2. “When I have bad days, I just eat lots of chocolate ice cream and dance to the Lion King soundtrack. It’s really odd, but it’s true.”

*That isn’t Baptiste Giabiconi**
**Or his own scathing wit

    I miss bitchy 3 year old Blake Lively. She and I used to walk down the streets gleefully muttering “today is a perfect to pick on things.”

    When I have bad days, I drink. What do you do, Ashley?

    What a boring, unoriginal picture…

    You know, I met Blake Lively once. I did. I thought it would make me like her more, maybe shed a little more dimension on her. I thought this would be inevitable since seeing people in 3-D whom you usually see in 2 literally gives them another dimension. But she is just as sickeningly cheerful in person as she is everywhere else. And I actually believe her on the whole Chocolate-Ice-Cream-Lion-King alibi because as I recall she was scarfing down a fucking sandwich when we met.
    Ray of fucking sunshine.
