Karl Lagerfeld loves her American-ness (so much he shot her for a Chanel campaign). Anna Wintour loves sitting next to her at couture shows. Now, apparently, Stella McCartney loves her… animal friendliness.

So goes the latest fashion campaign rumor, in which Blake Lively is said to be the upcoming face of Stella McCartney, the “perfect brand ambassador” in America. Lively is pictured at left in McCartney, the only time I can recall her ever wearing the label (points against this rumor). Reports the Daily Mail:

‘Like Leonardo, Blake is an animal lover and believes in cruelty-free fashion so when she met Stella at the Met Ball last month she found they shared many of the same ideals. Stella thinks Blake would be the perfect brand ambassador for her company in America.’

Granted, this comes from the always reliable “a source” but it does seem like a lot of major fashion luminaries have fallen under Blake’s spell.

Interestingly, no one seems to understand why.
