Chanel has unveiled the first image of Blake Lively's Mademoiselle handbag ad campaign.
The photos — shot by Chanel's Karl Lagerfeld in the company's Parisian headquarters — will appear in April magazines.
Lively, 23, was hand-picked for the fashion house's Mademoiselle handbag ad campaign by Lagerfeld himself after waiting patiently for the opportunity, which she said was more than a "dream come true."
"I had other opportunities and I would say, 'Thank you so much, but I am holding out for Chanel,'" she told the New York Times. "That's who I want to be the face of. And people would say, 'Well, that's unrealistic, they only hire Europeans,' and I said: 'Well, how great. I'll be the first then.'"
After the photo shoot, the Gossip Girl star was so excited that she pulled out her cell phone to snap a pic of Lagerfeld behind the lens, according to WWD.
