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.”
