Blair Waldorf would be fuming! Apparently, no one can say enough good things about Gossip Girl star turned Chanel muse Blake Lively these days.
Take your pick: this weekend the New York Times called her, "a healthy, perky, all-American surfer girl." Michael Kors gushed, "Blake's the triple S: sporty, sexy, sophisticated." While a WWD profile out today lauded her as, "Bubbly, articulate and self-assured beyond her 23 years."
And that's all before she's sold a single Chanel Mademoiselle bag.
But the designer darling did have a head start...
Lively's made a stellar style impression since the introduction of her couture-clad CW character Serena van der Woodsen. Then there are her three Vogue magazine covers, among others, and parties on both sides of the Atlantic this past week to kick off her collaboration with Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld. (Her first ad debuts today!) She even got a guided tour of Christian Louboutin's boutique Sunday from the shoe guru himself!
So what's the secret to all this success? We'll let Blake explain that: "I've just always believed you should put a lot of positive out there," she tells WWD. "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."
So there you have it folks, she's young, rich, beautiful, beloved by the fashion world and doesn't seem to gain a pound despite eating lots of chocolate ice cream. Is anyone else jealous yet?
